Correspondence Files 1943-1972 [series]

The Correspondence Files cover the years from 1943 to 1972. Again, as with the Administrative Files, the majority of material covers the 1950s and early 1960s. The series is divided into two major subseries: "University of Michigan Correspondence" and "Non-University of Michigan Correspondence." The University of Michigan Correspondence contains letters and memos to and from university administrators, colleges, schools, centers, and institutes. Most of the correspondence is not outstanding, but does establish the relationship between the DRDA and the research community at the university. One file, that of Vice-President (for Research) Ralph A. Sawyer does contain more substantive information and helps document the relationship between the newly-founded Office of the Vice-President for Research and the renamed UMRI.
