General Topical Files 1913-1990 [series]:

The General Topical Files series consists for the most part of historical files covering a range of topics. The series is composed of two subseries reflecting separate, but chronologically overlapping alphabetically arranged files. Of special interest is the correspondence with alumni serving in World War II ("Alumni in WW II, Correspondence from and Newspaper Clippings about"), and Dean Dana's correspondence with various people regarding the history of the lumber industry in Michigan and lumberjack lore ("History of Lumber Industry in Michigan"). Also included in this small series are historical statistics regarding curriculum offerings, degrees conferred, and student dissertation topics.

 1928-1990 [subseries]:

The 1928-1990 subseries of the General Topical Filess (6.2 linear ft., received in the 1989-1991 accessions) primarily address issues internal to the School of Natural Resources. Numerous committees and task forces are represented in this series, among them the Academic Affairs Committee and the Promotion and Tenure Committee. Topics relating to academic endeavors and curriculum development include "Problem Centered Laboratory Network (PCLN)" and "Specialization Coordinators." Other significant material in this series are the papers of former faculty member Dow V. Baxter (under "Faculty"), materials dating from the 1940s to the 1980s about land owned and/or utilized by the school ("Properties of SNR" also see Box 54 for additional material on SNR properties), and a review of the Wildland Management Center. The folders "Goals and Objectives" provide insight on the school's future direction.
