History

Biography:

David I. Macleod, born June 8, 1943, earned his B.A. at the University of Toronto in 1965 and both his M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1967 and 1973, respectively. Macleod was awarded the Woodrow Wilson Fellowship in 1965 and the Four Prize Fellowship, 1965-1969. Since 1970, Professor Macleod has taught in Central Michigan University (CMU)’s Department of History. During his career, Professor Macleod has taught a variety of courses on United States history, chaired the Department of History in the fall of 1997 and from 1985 through 1991, served as the Graduate Coordinator for the department, 1996-1997, and as Chair of CMU’s Academic Senate, 1982-1983. Since 1998, Professor Macleod has edited the Michigan Historical Review, the only scholarly publication devoted to the history of Michigan. Professor Macleod has a solid publication record of books, articles, and reviews, which includes the topics of Boy Scouts, American children, YMCA, Carnegie libraries, and Michigan mapping, among others. A number of his publications are separately cataloged in the Park and Clarke libraries at CMU. He is a member of a number of professional, historical organizations and associations and has been actively involved throughout his career with campus committees.

Professor Macleod is married to Beth Macleod, a CMU librarian emerita. Their home is in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. (This information is from the collection and Professor Macleod.)


Collection Scope and Content Note

The papers document the career of Professor Macleod, especially committees and special projects at CMU, on the Academic Senate, and within the Department of History. As such the collection has been processed into two main series: Department of History, and CMU committees. Materials are then organized alphabetically and chronologically within each series.

There is extensive documentation of the Department of History through departmental agendas, meeting minutes, policies and notices, 1970-2000, as well as the various committees Macleod served on. Chief among these are the Graduate Committees and Strathclyde committees and correspondence, as well as International Education and Long-Range Planning committees materials which led to the creation of and support for the History Exchange Program between Strathclyde University, Scotland, and CMU, 1980s-1990s. Other committees, departmental projects and a myriad of issues, such as teacher education, certification, preparedness, and testing, use of graduates, writing requirements, are also well documented. CMU Department of History Newsletters, 1976-2004 (Scattered), are also included. With a folder of Professor Macleod’s Biographical Materials, the History Department materials compose most of the collection, Boxes 1 through part of 8, approximately 4 cubic feet. This series provides excellent historical documentation of the department, 1970-2000.

The second series consists of Boxes 8 (part)-12, approximately 2 cubic feet, and documents CMU committees, mostly Academic Senate and General Education committees, council, subcommittees, ad hoc committees, the graduate council, and the Clarke Historical Library Director Search Committee, all of which Professor Macleod served on or chaired. Materials include mostly correspondence, including emails, agendas, meeting minutes, related materials, reports, official “documents,” surveys, proposals, forms, drafts, resolutions. These materials provide very good documentation of the working, goals, and accomplishments of these departments. The last folder includes documents the crisis of loss of CMU’s faculty’s confidence in President Edward B. Jakubauskas, 1989, which resulted in his resignation.

Processing Note: All evaluations, vitas, personal information of others, and numerous miscellaneous notes, the main points of which were later incorporated into correspondence or reports have been withdrawn from the collection, as well as general reading materials, generic newspaper clippings, and numerous duplicates.
