Schedules, Meetings, Presentations, and Itineraries

Archives Record Series: 02/08/06

Schedules, Meetings, Presentations, and Itineraries, 9 linear feet.

Description of the Material

President Robert Koob kept an extremely busy schedule that included local, state, and national meetings; state and national conferences; alumni visits; campus celebrations; community presentations, and campus visitors.  His staff assisted him in meeting these obligations by creating folders of background information, schedules, maps, and travel plans for many of these events.

Description of Record Series

After President Koob left office in 2007, the staff of the President's Office sent the contents of Boxes 1 through 5  to the University Archives.  This material shows the wide range of public duties and responsibilities in which President Koob was engaged.  It is a good place to study the planning that went into events such as the President's Picnic; other public entertainment; and smaller social gatherings.  The collection is arranged chronologically, with much more detailed and complete coverage in the later years.

In early 2014, the staff of the President's Office sent the contents of Box 6 to the University Archives.  This box includes texts of speeches and presentations; schedules for fundraising events and activities; and detailed information about the planning and location of the McLeod Center.  Material in Box 6 is arranged by category.
