The Memory Keeper: Analyzing The Importance Of Collecting And Preserving Oral Histories In A Twenty-First Century University Archival Repository, Arabeth Balasko May 2013

The Memory Keeper: Analyzing The Importance Of Collecting And Preserving Oral Histories In A Twenty-First Century University Archival Repository, Arabeth Balasko

History/Archives Capstones Collection

Recognizing the importance of collecting and incorporating individuals’ memories into an institution’s archival repository is a fundamental task that archivists must professionally and ethically accept. Depending on the repository’s specific needs and mission goals the collection policies will differ; however, disregarding the personal stories of the working population of the university is a disservice to archival collecting. How can a user analyze the completed history of an academic institution without providing the documented input and sharing of personal experiences of faculty, staff, and students? How can a researcher evaluate theory and explore a multitude of viewpoints, if only ...

Who Governed Yale? Kingman Brewster And Higher Education In The 1970s, Nathaniel Zelinsky

MSSA Kaplan Prize for Use of MSSA Collections

Relying on archival material and oral history, this essay examines two committees at Yale in the 1970s as case studies in how University President Kingman Brewster reshaped the school after the student unrest of the long 1960s. The first committee, led by the political scientist Robert Dahl, endorsed the equal admission of female students in 1972. The second committee, chaired by historian C. Vann Woodward, composed a nationally renowned report on the importance of “unfettered” free expression at the university in 1974-5. I show how each of these committees was a carefully calibrated political tool that allowed Brewster to moderate ...
