Historical Note

In May 1930, the former Committee on Catalogue, Student Enrollment and Entrance became the Committee on Catalogue, Registration, and Entrance. Like its predecessor groups, this committee of deans and professors focused its attention on issues concerning admission, the school calendar, the status of incoming students, and the format and preparation of the annual catalog. W. B. Kemp, Professor of Genetics and Engineering, chaired the committee, while Alma H. Preinkert, Assistant Registrar, served as secretary.

In the fall of 1935, the committee split into three groups. Dr. Kemp chaired a committee on Curricula, former member Professor H. F. Cotterman led a committee on Entrance, and former member Dean C. O. Appleman headed a committee on Educational Standards.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The records of the Committee on Catalogue, Registration, and Entrance consist of typed minutes and correspondence relating to meetings from 1930 to 1935, concerning topics of admission of individual students, standards of admission, and the format and preparation of the annual catalogue.

NOTE: After consultation with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, these records have been closed for a period of 75 years
