Established in 1934 as part of the Department of Psychology, the Counseling Center became a separate administrative unit in 1955, with three primary functions: provision of counseling services, development of testing programs, and research. Records include correspondence, reports on studies and experiments, manuals, and narratives of the center's history and purpose documenting the administration and special programs of the center. Administrative materials concern such topics as employment, enrollment, orientation, and scholastic tests and averages. Records from the reading, spelling, and study programs document aims, operation, and experimental results.
