Description

The "Office of Facilities Management" (earlier know as "Plant Management") is responsible for the maintenance of the campus's physical assets. These would include ground and buildings. At the same time, the Office of Facilities Management is also in charge of campus police, mail delivery, recycling, fleet services, and telecommunications. Much of the material in this record group was donated by David Aronson when he retired in 2013 and thus they reflect Aronson's different roles within both plant services and residential life.

Materials consist of brochures and promotional materials, hand-written notes, product listings and desciptions, blueprints and schematics, contracts, correspondence, memoranda, reports, grant applications, photos, meeting agendas and minutes, and David Aronson's personal project notebooks.

As a whole, these papers present a strikingly rich portrait of the history of campus facilities. The planning and construction of new campus buildings and the rehabilitation of older buildings are extensively documented. Of special note are the materials on the construction of the Student Center (the name "University Center" was tentatively proposed and then abandoned), Big Cat Stadium, the Bio-Mass Plant and the Science Building, as well as the renovation of both Imholte Hall (Social Science Building) and the Welcome Center (Community Services Building). Also figuring prominently in the record group are legislative requests, property inventories, campus master plans, and energy audits. These materials also speak to the shifting priorites of the campus in terms of its built environment and document projects which were planned and then abandoned, such as the renovation of both Briggs Library and Blakely Hall.

Correspondents: Harold Fahl, Herbert Croom, Lowell Rusmussen, John Q. Imholte, David Aronson, Gary McGrath, Samuel Schuman.

Keywords: University Center, Briggs Library, Imholte Hall, Welcome Center, Green Prairie Living and Learning Community.

Alternate Location

Oversized material located in map cabinet.

New Materials

New materials contained in box 15 were donated apparently by Dave Aronson, summer 2013. These materials have to do with the construction of the bio-mass plant.

Recording of Old Material

The over-large material, previously unprocessed, was finally recorded October 31st, 2013.
