Seoul, University of Korea, 1954-1960
Scope and Content Note
This large collection contains the administrative records of University Relations, including communication materials created before the establishment of the department in 1945. Since University Relations is the central communications office of the University, the collection covers all aspects of the University of Minnesota, including schools and departments, faculty, University sponsored events, student groups, and student activities. In addition, a significant part of the collection is comprised of information on non-University events, organizations, people, buildings and travel, including the Big Ten Athletic Conference, the American Heart Association, Human Rights Day, Masonic Dinners, the National Academy of Science, the Peace Corps, and state parks.
The collection primarily contains secondary materials, such as clippings, brochures and advertisements on various subjects regarding University of Minnesota schools and events, as well as activities and issues related to higher education in general. Materials consist of publications, correspondence, mailings, awards, speeches, reports, clippings, scrapbooks, research information, and miscellaneous files.
Folders on similar topics have not been physically brought together; materials on any topic may be found in a variety of boxes. Also, because of the size and scope of the collection, folder titles on similar topics are not always consistent. For example information on the University of Minnesota's Art Gallery may be found under Gallery or Museum. Researchers should try multiple, related search terms to find all relevant information on a single topic.
