Scope and Content

Series 83 contains the minutes of the faculties of the University of Florida College of Agriculture and the School of Forestry. The series begins in 1910 when the College was established. Included with the minutes for many of the years are records related to curriculum development, student matriculation, records of several committees--including the Curriculum Committee, Committee for Graduate Work, and the Committee on Undergraduate Activities--budgetary matters, records related to administrative procedures, and student petitions for substitute course credits. Volume 1 contains evaluation of individual students' progress, but this type of record does not appear in later volumes. Of special note in Volume 1 are requests from students, written during World War I, to return home to assist in farm work for wartime food production. Also of note in Volume 1 is mention of enrollment of women students and rescheduling of student exams to free students to fight an invasion of Mediterranean Fruit Flies. The records of the Committee on Undergraduate Activities provide documentation of student social life, club activities, and special projects.

Beginning in the 1970s, the minutes deal exclusively with matters related to student matriculation and course credits.

Volumes 2 and 3 overlap for the years 1952-1958, but documents in one volume are not included in the other.
