Arrangement note

The records of the Admissions Office have been arranged in a single series, Alphabetical Subject File, 1940-1980. In order to retain as much of the original filing system as possible, the series has been divided into four subseries (the original Office of Admissions groupings) under headings created by the processor: Committees, 1948-1956; Conferences, 1962-1972; Education, 1940-1980; and Junior and Community Colleges, 1954-1977. The folders within each subseries have been placed in alphabetical order by subject.
