The first subgroup (1976-1979 Accessions) is divided into seven series: Correspondence, Manuscripts and Writings, Public Statements and Publicity, Biographical Material, The Republic of New Africa, The Crusader, and "Radio Free Dixie" Transcripts.
The 1992 Accession of records of the University of Michigan Solar Car Team (4 linear feet) dates from 1989 to 1993 and consists of Visual Materials (videos and a photo album), a series of Binders, student end-of-term Group Reports, and Topical Files (from the Solar Car Team's filing cabinet).
There are two videos within the Visual Materials subseries. The Making of Sunrunner by George Bournias summarizes the creation of Sunrunner and details student participation in the project. The second video is actually a combination of two slide programs: Cut 1: The Sunrunner Down Under and Cut 2: USA and Australia Slide Program. The subseries also includes a photo album containing pictures of team members performing different tasks. Only a small number of the photographs in the album are labeled.
The Binder subseries includes a set of five binders (1 linear foot) maintained by Frank E. Stagg, exterior design group leader. Covering the years 1989 and 1990, these "Sunrunner Books" contain newsletters and bulletins, lecture notes, timelines, budget and sponsor information, wind tunnel data, exterior group agendas, work schedules and weekly goals, Australia race rules and general correspondence.
Also part of this subseries are the "Team Binders" (1 linear foot). These are arranged alphabetically by team function and also date from 1989 to 1990. These materials provide insight into the creation of Sunrunner, highlighting design concepts and testing results.
The Group Reports subseries (1 linear foot) is also arranged alphabetically by team function. This series (dating from 1989 to 1990) includes bound and unbound reports. The level of student reporting ranges from the general "what I learned on this project" to very detailed reports with charts, graphs, and accounts of individual accomplishments.
The Topical Files subseries (.75 linear feet) is arranged alphabetically and consists primarily of materials from the solar car team office filing cabinet. Materials in this series (dating from 1989 to 1990) include lecture notes from Aero Viroment, student applications and biographies, GM Sunrayce USA and World Solar Challenge information, meeting minutes, newsletters and bulletins. Also a part of this series is information relating to a student history project completed in 2001 examining the solar car team from its beginnings in 1989. Included is their final paper and correspondence with former team members about their experiences with the project.
The 2004 Review is a comprehensive two-volume overview of the IA program. These binders compile documents from IA's conferences, projects, correspondence, participation lists and records, staff and faculty accomplishments, awards, publications, websites, and press material. As a primarily grant funded initiative, IA measured its accomplishments by the success of its projects. This Review was likely used as a reference source for the IA staff, as documentation of partnerships, and as evidence of accomplishments to show potential participants and funders. The contents of the review are as follows. Volume 1: Self Study, History, Consortium, Responses to the Work of IA, Governance, Work of Faculty, Work of Colleges and Universities; Volume 2: Work of Language, IA at the University of Michigan, Funding, Staff, and Public Scholarship
Though some of the binders' contents is duplicated in the two auxiliary boxes (some of the early newsletters for example), the binder's order and integrity have been maintained to provide a snapshot of how the project functioned and how it viewed itself in 2004. Of particular interest is the "Imagining Michigan Conferences" section. It was an annual series of conferences between 2000 and 2004 that used the "Imagining Your State Tool Kit" to identify ways to bring universities and community institutions within Michigan together. Book 1 has a CD-ROM "Highlights from November 2002 Conference."
The 5x7 Plates, 1894-1909 Series includes approximately 230 plates. Of particular interest and depth are the plates relating to the Garden of the Gods (Colorado), St. Louis, Mackinac Island and Les Cheneaux, as well as Tanner family portraits.
The Program Files series is the largest in the collection and dates from 1968 (when 60 Minutes premiered) to 2007 and is arranged by television schedule years (beginning in September). The content of the Program Files has changed over time and this accounts for some of the subseries that were developed with the passage of time. For the first few years, these files consisted only of the transcripts of the program as aired. Whatever background information was collected or if any post-program material was received, these were usually filed with the collection's General Files (described below). Beginning around 1975, the Program Files began to include, in addition to the broadcast transcript, all of the materials (clippings, articles, producer memoranda, viewer suggestions, transcripts of interviews with participants, etc.) accumulated in connection with the background preparation for any given story. Responses to stories, such as update information, viewer correspondence, and newspaper articles, were also now included in the individual program file. This post-program materials would remain with Program Files until the 1986/87 season when it was transferred again to the General Files.
An important subseries of the Program Files consists of story ideas in various stages of development that were dropped or never aired for whatever reason. Initially, this subseries was designated as "Dead Story" materials and covered the period from 1981 to 1990. Included were clippings, correspondence, and memoranda from producers and others with suggestions for possible program segments. Prior to 1981, story suggestion files were usually maintained as part of the General Files series. Around 1990, the content of the Program Files series again changed and thus was created a subseries of background materials for stories both aired and proposed. Because there is often overlap between the program file and the background file for a given story in the 1990s, the researcher is encouraged to consult both.
Concluding the Program Files is a set of binders containing copies of transcripts for 60 Minutes and other Mike Wallace programs such as CBS Reports and his Biography program. This portion of the collection only covers the period up to 1990.
Of interest to the researcher are Abraham Epstein's files of correspondence with the Social Security Board, in which he discusses his views of the theory, content, and implementation of the Social Security Act. In his Topical Files, there are extensive holdings of articles and writings, many issues of the AASS monthly bulletin, and interesting industrial handbooks, published in the 1920s, from various British Isle firms. The pension and insurance programs of European firms shaped, in part, Epstein's early views on social security.
The first series, Academic Accomplishments, contains Professor Hultquist's curriculum vita and copies of his scientific research papers.
The Academic and Professional Files series is the largest portion of the collection and offers the richest source of material from which to document Oksenberg's extensive and varied career. This series, consisting mainly of correspondence, but also including memoranda, reports, and other documentation, has been maintained by broad chronological subseries. Because of Oksenberg's many responsibilities and academic commitments and because these files came into the library in several different accessions, there is much overlapping between the several subseries. The researcher is therefore encouraged to examine the container listing carefully for related (though separated) files of interest to his/her research.
Some of the subseries are arranged by name of individuals. Included in these are prominent sinologists such as A. Doak Barnett and John K. Fairbanks; policy makers W. Michael Blumenthal and Zbigniew Brzezinski; and presidents Nixon, Carter, and Bush. Other subseries are arranged by name of organization. Here the researcher will find Oksenberg's files from his activities with the Committee on Scholarly Communications with the PRC (CSCPRC); the Joint Committee on Contemporary China (JCCS); the National Committee on US-China Relations (NCUSCR); the Social Science Research Council (SSRC); and several other Chinese studies organizations. This series provides a sense of the changing concerns and priorities of American sinologists during the 1970s and 1980s.
The Academic and Professional Records series (1924-1933, 0.25 linear feet, 1 oversize volume, and 1 oversize folder) consists of a notebook, correspondence, a drawing, a scrapbook containing photographs, reference booklets, and maps detailing Hicks's early academic and professional career.

The records include historical information about ACCESS, announcements and other materials that inform about activities and programs, anniversary banquet newsletters, annual reports, and miscellaneous publications. Also, contents of the archived website starting from 2010.
The Activities series reflects the broad range of issues around which the Gray Panthers of Huron Valley were active. The Newspaper Clippings folder includes more than two dozen news reports, interviews, and letters to the editor that testify to the organization's community presence. The Local Actions folder is complementary as it includes both lists and background about the group's efforts.
The Gray Panthers of Huron Valley sponsored a Health Care Forum in 1987, which is comprehensively documented, from the event's planning to its execution. The organization's formal declaration about Social Security, as well as its subsequent resolutions on the matter, comprise the Social Security Task Force folder.
The Activities (.20 linear feet) series contains information about the organizations and activities Mr. Sivil was involved with during his years in the Detroit area and also after relocating to the Alexandria, Virginia area in the mid-1980s. Materials of interest may include his testimony to the City of Alexandria Human Rights Commission regarding changes to the human rights ordinance and the need to include on the commission an individual knowledgeable about sexual orientation concerns; his correspondence and writings while president of the Association of Suburban People including his July 1980 address to the organization; and a copy of his birth certificate and handwritten resumes in the personal interests and information folder.

Also present are personnel files of executive directors and other officers as well as printed materials that include news clippings and MCC/MEF newsletters.
The Administration series contains five subseries, as well as other topical files pertaining to the day-to-day business of the fraternity. These subseries are: Constitutions and Manuals, Events, Fraternities, House Business, and Legal. Within them are records pertaining to specific events and actions in the life of the Alpha Chapter of Nu Sigma Nu as well as general announcements made to members the national fraternity. Specifically, the subseries Events, House Business, and Legal contain records that pertain only to the Alpha Chapter of Nu Sigma Nu at the University of Michigan. The subseries Constitutions and Manuals contains publications or letters that pertain to all chapters of the national fraternity.

The Administration series (1976-2012, 3.2 linear feet) is further divided into two subseries, Core Administrative Files, and Topical Files. The Core Administrative Files subseries documents the day-to-day activities of the Center as well as its governance over its history. The subseries includes executive committee minutes, memos to faculty, annual reports, long-range plans, and several self and external evaluations of the ECB and Sweetland Center for Writing. The Topical files are arranged alphabetically and contain material about programs sponsored by the center, the research it has conducted, its liaisons with and involvement with other groups on campus and throughout Michigan, and its day-to-day activities.
The Administration series (1971-2000) contains program reviews, reports, correspondence, and committee material for the Program on Studies in Religion.
The Administration series contains a wealth of historical background material in the form of both official publications and typed and handwritten reports. An organization historian existed for every two-year administration, providing consistent records of the organization's activities and achievements. These include organization membership, awards, educational courses, flower shows, and anniversaries. The series contains a nearly complete collection of Annual Meeting programs from 1934-2000, as well as documents relating to the Incorporation of the Foundation of the Federated Garden Clubs of Michigan in 1961 and its merger with the Federated Garden Clubs of Michigan, Inc. in 2004. Resolutions, Annual Reports (including financial), Meeting Minutes, and records of National Conventions are more sparse, but may also be found in significant runs for some years.
The Administration series (0.75 linear feet) includes information about awards, letters of support for AOC, budgets, events, committees, course syllabi, presentations, program summaries, project and partnership listings, publicity, reports, and press coverage. Information on individual projects is found in the Project Files series. Committee records feature two groups, the Graduate Working Group and P-SPACE. The P-SPACE Working Group (Public Scholarship, Public Art, Cultural Engagement) included the Arts of Citizenship, Imagining America, and the Scholarly Publications Office of Digital Library Services, who proposed an online publication series dedicated to public cultural projects and public scholarship in the arts, humanities, and design. Course syllabi are taken from five classes: "Community Resources," UC 310, UC 312, UC 313, and Dance 490.
The Administration series provides information about Michigan RCAR's internal organization, mainly since the mid-1980s. The minutes from Policy Council and Director's Reports contain yearly summations of the group's activities, and give some sense how priorities were set and activities were planned. The "Policy Council and Affiliated Pro-choice Group Lists" folder provides information about the founding of the Michigan chapter of RCAR in 1975.
The Administration series consists of policies, membership details, speakers, and other similar institutional records.
The Administration series includes two subseries. Corporate Papers contains the articles of incorporation in 1917, by laws for St. Columba Community Outreach in 1984, and the Michigan Annual Reports for both entities. The 1912 abstracts for the original property purchase for two lots are included. Finance subseries includes the accountings for Save the Church Fund in the 1930s and 1940s and more recent reviewed financial statements from the 1990s.
The Administration series (2 linear ft.; 1971-1984 and 1983-1998) consists of those records related to the internal operations and the outreach functions of the organization. The records are arranged alphabetically by type of material and by the group creating the records. The minutes of the Executive Committee and the Political Action Committee provide the best entry to the policy and decision-making processes of Common Cause in Michigan. The general correspondence and financial statements are also illuminating of the inner workings of the group. The Michigan newsletters and the press statements are quite informative and seem effective at communicating the leaders' message to the public at large.
The Administration series is the largest series. This series includes; audits, clippings, contracts, correspondence, financial records, history, job descriptions, licensure and certification, manuals, marketing, minutes, monthly summaries, plans, proposals, publications, reports, and tax returns. The series contains documentation pertaining to the creation, finances, publicity, and management of Individualized Home Nursing Care. There is a large amount of minutes, which document board of directors, committee, sub-committee, and review committee meetings. Through the minutes the social programs, outreach planning, marketing, particular aspects of patient care and specific financial concerns are detailed. Materials of interest may include correspondence between Individualized Home Nursing Care and Yomiuri Shimbun, a Japanese newspaper, regarding the work done by Individualized Home Nursing Care. There is also information pertaining to the subsequent partnership that evolved which resulted in the United States and Japan Training Institute in Geriatric Care. The series also includes detailed information pertaining to the financial state of the organization and statistics regarding patient care, which can be found in the audit documentation, monthly summaries, and the tax information. The founding documentation within the history sub series may also be of interest because it documents the evolving goals, mission statement, and responsibilities of the organization and its board members.
The Administrative Records series includes articles of incorporation, bylaws, and history; committee records; correspondence; minutes; and NAUL newsletters.
The Administration series contains seven subseries. The Board of Directors subseries includes SAC corporate papers, minutes for 1988-1991 and 1999-2001, strategic plans, and the 2000-2001 Board revitalization process. The Clippings subseries highlight SAC activities in the public eye through the three decades of existence and is a primary source for finding details on SAC activities in Ann Arbor and around the state. Included in this subseries are the contents of a scrapbook of newspaper clippings, damaged by the 2002 fire, documenting the Black History case. This case received national attention and was cited in the New York Times and other major newspapers. The Office Management subseries contains general information used for the public relations and partial information on fundraising activities. No budgetary information was available in the records as accessioned. The Publications subseries includes the SAC newsletter, "Active Voice" from 1975 to 2002. There is also a copy of "The Fourth 'R', Student Rights, A Handbook for Michigan Public School Students and Their Families," an article entitled "Access Denied," and two relevant articles that appeared in the Administrative Law Quarterly.
The Administration series consists of three subseries: A.G. Studer and R. Elliott files; R. Adelberg files; and Topical files.
The bulk of the records are in the Administration series. This series is primarily composed of meeting minutes that span from 1896-1997. These meeting minutes reflect the evolving mission of the camp as it was influenced by the changing social norms. The meeting minutes comprise two groups, the House Committee and the Girls Friendly Society Board of Directors. These meeting minutes were kept intermingled because they had overlapping membership and in some instances the notes refer to one another. Interspersed throughout the meeting minutes are annual reports and monthly financial reports. These reports are kept with the meeting minutes because they are referenced in the meeting minutes. Significant issues found in the notes are the changing administration of the society and of Camp Holiday, the amount of resources spent on the maintenance of the cottages, and the annual experiences of the summer camp staff. The Administration series also contains information pertaining to the background of the camp, committee member lists, constitution and by-laws, brief correspondence which includes a letter sent to the Queen of England, material from a leaders workbook in 1980, membership policies, and the 1980 Trust Agreement.
Administration (1 linear foot, 1951-2004) includes correspondence, newspaper articles, photographs, and publications. The correspondence documents the daily administration of the program and negotiation for the continuation of the program. Of special note are letters from many former students written in 1974 about their experiences in the program. The newspaper articles are mainly publicity for the program, and discuss the purpose and findings of the projects. The photographs show students collecting and analyzing the survey data. Publications form half of this series. Some are published by DAS about the program, and others are publications by faculty and students using the data collected by the survey. Also of note are lists of survey topics by year and bibliographies of all the publications using DAS data. Publications are arranged alphabetically, by title.
The Administration series comprises 0.3 linear feet and details the organizational structure of CIF. It includes records from the Board of Directors and Executive Committees (including meeting minutes, handouts, memos, and reports from various subcommittees) and some historical materials, including CIF's Articles of Incorporation. This series is arranged chronologically as originally ordered by CIF.
The Administration series includes both formal and informal group and individual portraits of university central administration and support staff and some office and workplace images.
Administration and Background consists of 0.2 linear feet of material. It includes the history of the program, the agreement with the Korean Foundation, and newsletters and brochures created by the program.
The Administration and Governance series, (1945-2010, 2.0 linear feet) contains materials produced in the course of cooperatively running Henderson House. Researchers can find business records, minutes of meetings, documentation regarding the history of the house, and other administrative records. The bulk of the materials consist of minutes and agendas of Henderson House meetings, Board of Governors meetings, and Alumnae Council meetings from 1945 to 2002 and are arranged chronologically. Five ledger books containing minutes from 1946 to 1956 are also part of this series. Other materials found in this series are applications for house officer positions, budget reports, fundraising information, Alumnae Council records, rosters of the Board of Governors, inventories of items in the house, house maintenance files (including floor plans and blueprints), house policies and procedures (including constitutions and by-laws), information regarding relations with the University of Michigan, Resident Director information, scholarship information, surveys of attitudes and experiences, and materials relating to the Society of Henderson Women.
The Administration records date from 1964 to 1991 and primarily consist of the Administrative records series which include: meeting notes, memos, announcements and flyers, constitution and bylaws, student directories, correspondence (limited), election statements, election forms and results, survey forms and results, annual and presidents reports, and list of resources for incoming students. The Administration Records series is arranged chronologically. There are no records available from 1984-1986.
The Administrative series (2.65 linear feet, 1908-1998) is primarily made of annual reports covering 1908-1973 and 1983-1987. It also contains various department committee records and other documentation that was produced at the administrative level of the department, including departmental reviews in 1969 and 1981 as well as visiting committee reviews. Correspondence sent by the department and Gordon Van Wylen, former dean of the college, is contained in this series, as well.
The Administrative series consists of minutes, memoranda, correspondence and financial documents which relate to the administration of the center, and is arranged alphabetically by topic. The series includes the minutes and other papers of the center's executive committee.
Administrative series documents the organizational structure and annual agricultural offerings of the Community Farm of Ann Arbor. The series contains meeting minutes, budgets, and correspondence.
The Administrative file dates from 1966 to 1999, with the bulk of the material falling into the 1968 to 1994 range. This series contains meeting minutes, departmental correspondence, materials relating to the external and internal departmental reviews, personnel files and information about the programs offered in the department.
The Administrative series (1955-2003) includes annual reports, surveys, correspondence with the Bishop of the Diocese of Western Michigan, and files relating to its planning for, and transition to a "Total Ministry" church.
The Administrative series contains files of the Executive Director, the Board of Trustees, administrative committees, by-laws, budgets, financial reports and statements, strategic planning documentation; materials related to the Michigan Theater restoration: surveys, reports, and plans; materials related to membership campaigns, volunteer recruitment, and staff newsletters. Also included articles and interview notes taken by Russell Collins on the subject of history of Ann Arbor's three theater venues --Hill's Opera House, the Whitney Theater, and Michigan Theater; programs and newspaper advertisements of performances at the Ann Arbor theaters; and Collins' article on the subject of history of American musical theater.
The Administrative series is comprised of two major areas: funding and management matters. An NIH grant application for 1990-1995 comprises the major part of the Funding subseries. Included in the General folders is the report produced for the NIH site visit in 1994, for the renewal of the grant. A small amount of correspondence regarding program expenditures and stipends during the period from 1986 to 1993 is included. A Program Management folder contains job descriptions, a management schedule, and recommendations resulting from an administrative review. These papers provide background for the policy procedures and decisions of the program.
The Administrative series covers the period 1957-2002 and is the largest portion of the record group. In addition to the church's quarterly conference minutes, this series also documents its activities within the Michigan Conference and within the General or national conference. Under "Financial" are formal, detailed, annual and quarterly reports containing information about nearly all of the church's expenditures and receipts. It should be noted that financial information about the status of various church projects can be found scattered throughout this series. Under "Pastors," the researcher will find information about pastors Hilliard and Ardrey. Although most of these files relate to the activities of Pastor Ardrey, files of Bishop Hilliard have been separately donated to the library and may be found cataloged under his name. The Ardrey files reflect his concern for his community and his desire to improve the educational system. Materials from many of the committees that he worked on - including the Property Release Option program, Citizens for Millage, and the Task Force on School/Community Relations - are found in this portion of the Administrative series.
St. Paul A.M.E. Zion Church was also involved in a housing project, 1966-1978, and records from this undertaking are found under the heading "St. Paul Housing Corporation." Designed to be an affordable housing alternative for the elderly and low income families, this project was financed by a federal government loan. Unfortunately, the project never materialized as anticipated because the loan came due before construction was completed.
The Administration series also includes materials on some of the organizations within the church, such as its clubs, the board of stewards and the board of trustees. The researcher will get a sense of the church's membership by examining the funeral notices, many of which contain brief summaries of the lives of deceased members. This subseries is arranged alphabetically by name of member. There are also funeral notices scattered among the most recent Sunday Bulletins.
The Administrative records chronicle the financial and leadership activities of Immanuel U.C.C. from 1912 to 1995, with the bulk falling between 1942 to 1978. The researcher will find a copy of the 1894 church constitution in the Constitution and Bylaws file as well as various later drafts. The first volume of Consistory and Congregational meeting minutes contains the earliest consistent documentation of church decisions and activities, which were recorded in German until mid-1927. Minutes were handwritten until early 1969, after which they were typed, copied, and taped into the journal. The folders in this series include minutes, agendas, and reports that are absent from the bound volumes.
The church's financial activities and membership levels are available from the formal Financial Reports and Year Book Reports to the parent United Church of Christ. More detailed records of disbursements and income are found in several of the Yearly Files. The church's organizations, for example the Consistory, Board of Education, Ladies' Aid Society, and the Pastor, report on their finances and activities in the Annual Reports to the Membership.
The Pastors file is an incomplete collection of ten of Immanuel's twelve (non-interim) pastors' hiring, letters of resignation, and correspondence after departure. It also includes documents for Keith Westphal, who was minister of Christian Education from 1966 to 1967.
Immanuel's self-reflection, as it sought to be responsive to its membership, is evident in the number of surveys it did. In 1961, the church coordinated with their parent organization to do a comprehensive Congregational Analysis. In 1967 and 1973, the leadership conducted surveys of the membership; the responses can be found in the corresponding Yearly Files. The most serious evaluation of the church's relevance came in the late 1970s with the decision whether or not to merge with St. Mark's and Trinity churches (the third, St. Peter's, decided to close rather than merge). The Tri-Church Merger series includes meeting minutes, Immanuel's compiled files pertaining to the three churches (each includes a formal appraisal), and their membership survey and ultimate rejection of the merger.
The Administrative series covers the period from 1932 to 1989 and is arranged alphabetically. The minutes provide the best continuous source of information about the activities and platforms of the League. The minutes of board meetings are nearly complete, but the unit and general meetings are better documented in earlier decades. The annual reports are valuable for documenting earlier decades of the League. From 1939 to 1958, board members and committee chairs submitted reports, but from 1961 to 1976, the annual reports were created on forms according to state and national guidelines. From 1964 to 1987, the annual meeting workbooks provide summary information about the year's activities and interests. The workbooks contain minutes from the annual meetings, budgets, treasury reports, reports from committee chairs, and current agendas and positions. Newsletters summarize issues raised in general, unit, and board meetings, provide interim project reports and reminders of activities, and address relationships among national, state, and local programs. The newsletters fill in documentary gaps between the annual reports and the annual meeting workbooks.
The Administrative series (0.6 linear feet and one oversize folder) consists mostly of correspondence and work-related files maintained between 1966 and 1969, although it also includes several scattered folders of information from the late 1990s. Several folders of historical material and staff meeting minutes are also included.
The Administrative series contains meeting minutes of the Kappa chapter and the Inter-chapter council meetings, financial records, research foundation recognition awards, and information on the John and Frances Trytten Fund. These records detail the operation of the chapter, from the gathering of dues, to the research sponsored and pursued for scholarship.
The Administrative series best illustrates the internal structure and workings of the organization, particularly in its constitution and bylaws, reports to the national organization (scattered), minutes of executive and general meetings, and incoming and outgoing correspondence. Correspondence files, for example, effectively illuminate the organization's concentrated effort to broaden community support for the organization. Numbers of these documents are marked as "agenda items" and similar items appear also in files containing minutes for executive and general meetings. Newsletters, initiated in 1987, are an effective vehicle for ascertaining how the branch projected itself to its membership, and press releases are a useful source for looking at the range of issues and activities it relied on the media, in a large part, to write about and help promote. Thirteen folders of newspaper clippings attest to the success of the branch in utilizing and responding to media attention. (The collection of clippings were copied onto acid-free paper and are arranged chronologically.)
Administrative material also holds applications prepared for the prestigious Thalheimer Award, recognition bestowed annually on chapters at each national NAACP convention for outstanding programmatic activity. This is a particularly rich source. Each application includes summaries of the year's activities, offers supporting evidence, illustrates local support, and in most cases, includes photographs (photocopied onto acid-free paper) of major events. Researchers should note that a file of financial material in this series is closed until the year 2006.
The Administrative series (2.5 linear feet) contains general information about the various branches of the Core Technology Alliance, the application for funding from 21st Century Jobs, reports and reviews, by-laws, grant applications, information on the relations with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and other administrative information.
Administrative (1964-1990, 2 linear feet) documents the conduct of business for A-Square records, and to a lesser extent Discount Records, Universal Artists, and Diamond Comics. The series contains papers dealing with various professional organizations, assorted contracts, professional correspondence, documentation of events, financial records, and papers pertaining to legal counsel, recording studios and talent agencies.
The Administrative series, 1910-2001 (5 linear feet), is arranged alphabetically and primarily consists of reports and memoranda. The background folder contains informative documents that explain the purpose, organization, and history of the Botanical Gardens. Annual reports and Committees are the largest subseries. The annual reports are yearly accounts of collection development and research projects at the gardens. The Committees subseries contains incomplete records of four committees: Ad Hoc Study, Budget Review, Executive, and Literature, Science, and the Arts Program Evaluation. The Executive Committee records are the most comprehensive, consisting of minutes, reports, and memoranda from the years 1913-1919 and 1980-1986. Though less comprehensive, the other committee records provide insight into the gardens' administration at specific points in time. Also included in the Administrative series are materials on budget, grants, planning and scheduling including the master plan for the years 1980-1985. Docent guides and documents concerning conservatory renovation are also included. The series continues in Box 11.
The Administrative series consists of material related to the organization of the Workshop, its history, financials, website and related correspondence. The series also contains material related to failed proposals and outside recognition of the Workshop.
The Administrative series includes grant proposals, by-laws, meeting minutes, and promotional material.
