COLLECTION ARRANGEMENT

The records of the six years of the Perkins presidency are divided into three two-year series (1963-65, 1965-67, and 1967-69) and a fourth series spanning his presidency. The biannual periods are further divided into two groups: the first is derived from the organizational structure of Cornell University, following the hierarchy beginning with the Board of Trustees and continuing through the President's and Provost's Offices, the Offices of Vice Presidents and other administrative officials, the Cornell University Medical College, Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory, the Deans of the statutory and endowed colleges and schools, departments, committees, commissions, and boards within the university. The second group is alphabetically arranged, and includes individuals, organizations, and topics both inside and outside the university. The fourth series, 1963-69 (primarily 1967-69), is topically arranged, and includes letters to the Office of the President concerning the events of the Spring of 1969, files pertaining to the state of the university in 1967-69 and its relations with trustees and alumni, records concerning the Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory, the speeches of James A. Perkins, Presidential commission files and reports, annual reports to the president, transcripts, tape recordings, and other subjects
