Scope and content
These Library records were created by Elizabeth Galloway, Library Director from 1979 to 2013. The collection includes memos, minutes, reports, and surveys, which document the activity of the Library Director as well as Art Center. The bulk of the material was collected by Galloway rather than generated by her, and documents Art Center's administration generally more than the administration of the Library specifically. The David R. Brown files include memos sent by Galloway to Brown, memos from Brown to Galloway and to the Vice Presidents, and memos to and from the Board of Trustees. Additionally, minutes of the Curriculum Committee, minutes of the Vice Presidents meetings, minutes and correspondence of the Library Advisory Board, and minutes and newsletters of the Student Government all document planning and changes in the way Art Center operated from the mid 1980s to 2001. A draft of the Leon Whiteson history of Art Center includes Galloway's notes and corrections. Various reports from departments within the school, including enrollment statistics (for international students, Art Center at Night, and Saturday High) as well as independent consultants' reports, add further insight.
