Core Administrative Records 1961-1994 [series]

The Core Administrative Records, particularly the Staff Meeting, Correspondence, and Review files, are quite valuable in documenting the day-to-day activities of the center and its major programs. In addition, the series includes records regarding the center's creation (including Louise Cain's original proposals and the Alumnae Council's early involvement in the center), annual and long-term reports, CEW descriptions and organizational charts, planning and budget materials, thank-you letters from former participants, and Executive Committee records.

The researcher should note that the Correspondence sub-series and its components--Directors Correspondence, Staff Correspondence, and Intra-University Correspondence--should not be viewed as complete runs of all incoming or outgoing correspondence. Also, it contains major overlaps both between those three components, with the Topical Files, and with individual staff members' files. This sub-series is largely based on the organization of the pre-existing collection, and does not necessarily reflect how the files came from CEW. Correspondence in the newer accessions were generally kept with either individual staff members' files or with the Topical files. The Intra-University Correspondence is only loosely based on the UM office or unit in question; in some cases it is more topically arranged. (E.g. 'Affirmative Action' contains not only correspondence from the Affirmative Action Program, but also correspondence relating to affirmative action from the President's Office and the VP for Academic Affairs.) Titles of purely topical files of Intra-University Correspondence (with no basis in the university office/administrative unit structure) are enclosed in quote marks ("").

Similarly, the researcher should be aware that the Staff Meetings and Notes sub-series was compiled from several different staff-members overlapping, partial runs of minutes and notes. Duplicates that had annotations were generally retained. Of special note within the sub-series are the two binders: The first, the 'Staff Calendar and Events' binder includes not only agendas, notes, and calendars (like the regular staff meeting files), but also flyers for CEW events. The second is 'Patricia Wulp's Staff Meetings and Notes binder'. This file, along with the 'Administration Binder' in Wulp's individual staff files, appears to have been started in 1973, while Wulp was serving as Acting Director during a sabbatical of Jean Campbell's. They include staff minutes agendas, calendars, and minutes, as well as Wulp's notes on CEW administration, program planning materials, and correspondence with Jean Campbell and others.

Finally, many of the materials relating to CEW's budget have been removed from the Core Administrative series and restricted. Other places to find budgetary information include the Planning sub-series (especially for 1985-1987), the Staff Meetings and Notes, and the Correspondence files (especially with the President's office and the Vice President for Academic Affairs). Additionally, records documenting the center's founding and start-up funds, as well as some of its early fundraising efforts can be found in the Alumnae Council section of the Founding and Historical Documents sub-series, and budget information for various CEW programs can be found in the Topical and Individual Staff files under "Programs" and under the names of specific events.
