This collection consists of a wide range of materials including photographs, publications, newspaper clippings, correspondence, promotional and program materials, and miscellaneous materials, all relating to the history of Central Michigan University’s (CMU) Department of Communication Disorders (CDO) and Audiology programs. The collection is divided into two series, CDO and Audiology materials. Within these series, materials are organized alphabetically and chronologically. The materials date from 1972 to 2012, although the majority of materials are undated. The collection predominately consists of photographs from personal and business events like holiday parties, graduations, and students’ clinical work with patients from both CDO and the Audiology program. The CDO’s 50th anniversary and the creation of CMU’s Clinical Doctorate in Audiology (Au.D.), the first and oldest Au.D. in the nation, are also documented through programs, pamphlets and newspaper clippings. Senate Resolution No. 768 pertaining to the recognition of CDO is filed separately in an oversized folder.
