Files 1940-1978 [subseries]

The subseries, Office Files; 1940-1978, comprises twelve linear feet and consists of diverse materials evidently used or stored as reference files. These records are arranged alphabetically by type of material and office of origin into four sub-subseries: Budgets, Committees, Core Course, and PBB Study. As with the Dean's files, these records pertain to both the internal workings of the School of Public Health (Budgets, Committees, and Core Course) and to the school's activities at the state (PBB Study) and national (Association of Schools of Public Health) levels

 
Budgets 1940-1965

The Budgets sub-subseries runs nearly 1.8 linear feet in Boxes 41 and 42 and provides detailed evidence of the financial operations of the school between 1940 and 1965. The relative importance of federal and foundation support is manifest in these records and the assessment of merit of individual faculty members is also revealed.

Committees

The Committees sub-subseries can be seen as duplicating similar materials in the dean's files. Here, however, the records of the Committee on Instruction and the Curriculum Committee are most complete in thoroughly documenting the basic issue of education at the school. Additional committee files are located in the various Deans' series

Core Courses

Similarly the Core Course sub-subseries offers important evidence on the changing expectations and mores in public health education at a time when student unrest and dissent was at its height at the university. The Core Course sub-subseries provides a unique insight into what actually went on within the classrooms as a professional school strived to balance the demands of its students for relevance and dialogue with the needs of the professors and the school to preserve some semblance of professional training in a field growing increasingly complex and diverse.

The other file dealing with external issues is the PBB Study; these materials run 0.6 linear feet in Box 48 and document the school's efforts to establish via epidemiological and biological evidence the far reaching implications of polybrominated biphenyls on human health.
