 1920-1978 [subseries]

The initial accessions of material from the Housing Office covered the years 1920-1978. They were received in many discreet accessions. In a major reprocessing of the records in 1986, the numerous accessions were arbitrarily arranged into a single alphabetical Central Topical Files series. Not surprisingly the topic most thoroughly documented in the Central Topical Files is student life within the university dormitory system. There is also much information about dormitory construction and governance. The latter topic covers a wide variety of social customs, but is particularly complete regarding the gradual lifting of special regulations affecting women and the gradual disappearance of gender specified dormitories. Four other topics are covered at some depth. Scattered throughout the records is information regarding race relations within the dormitories and the community. Second, there is a quantity of information regarding fraternities and sororities. Information includes consideration of the organizations' decline in the 1960s (and the subsequent impact on student housing that a loss of fraternity and sorority rooms would entail) and the proposed construction of fraternity and sorority houses on North Campus. Third, there is a large amount of information regarding the construction of Inter-Cooperative Council Sponsored housing on North Campus. Fourth, and more surprisingly, is a large body of personnel records relating to Japanese-Americans employed by the University during World War II. Many came to the university from Relocation Centers, and there is a small body of correspondence with individuals at these Centers.
