Vice Chancellor for Business Affairs Records
Scope and Contents
In addition to records concerning the day-to-day operation of the campus, some files contain information about the issues faced not only by the school but by society as a whole. For example, the Pine Needles file contains depression-era correspondence. Of particular note are the pleas for payment made by the printer to the Woman's College in 1933 during the "banking holiday" when banks restricted fund withdrawals. The files of the 1960's and early 1970's reflect problems faced during those years. An example of this can be found in the Upward Bound folder that contains correspondence concerning UNCG's participation in this program and the negative impact on the campus.
Other issues faced by the growing school include the debate over air conditioning, complaints from students about the food service, disturbances or threat of disturbances on campus, and the growing parking dilemma.
Unprocessed materials date from 1944 to 2010.
