The College of Education traces its origins to the Division of Vocational Education, established in 1918. This unit officially became the College of Education in 1921. The records of the college are organized into a single series: Deans' Office Files. The correspondence, minutes, statistics, and curriculum materials in the collection document the expansion of the college's size and scope, and its change in focus from education for agriculture and home economics to the theory and art of education at all levels. The bulk of the materials correspond to Vernon Anderson's tenure as dean of the college, from 1955 to 1970.
