Biographical/Historical Note

Robert Barbeau Mautz came to the University of Florida in 1950 as Assistant Professor of Law. In 1952 he was elevated to Associate Professor and appointed Assistant Dean in the College of Law. In 1958 he was named Dean (later Vice President) of Academic Affairs and later became Chancellor of the State University System.


Scope and Content

This collection contains papers reflecting Mautz's non-administrative professional work in Law. A portion of the collection consists of correspondence between the chair and members of the Contracts Editorial Group of the Committee on Auxiliary Business and Social Materials in the Association of American Law Schools. Mautz joined the group circa 1956 and later served as chair for two years. However, the correspondence here was generated from 1949 to 1956 during the tenure of his predecessors, Malcolm D. Talbott and Franklin F. Schultz. Mautz's involvement with the committee is only briefly documented. Most of the correspondence concerns types of contracts texts needed for classroom instruction.

Also documented in the collection is Mautz's involvement in the Corporation Law Committee, Banking and Business Law Committee, and Uniform State Laws Committee of the Florida Bar. This material includes reference to a proposed 1960-1961 revision of the State's Close Corporation Act.

Also included is one speech entitled, "Crisis in Education."
