Size 22.5 feet of linear shelf space (approximately 20000 items)
Abstract The Department of History was established in 1891, though courses in history had been taught prior to that. In 1920, its name changed to Department of History and Government to reflect the addition of political science to the curriculum. In 1935, when the Department of Political Science was created and the government courses previously taught as part of the history curriculum were transferred to it, the name of the Department of History and Government reverted to Department of History. Records include correspondence and other files relating to the administration of the Department of History and its relations with other departments and units of the university. Though there are some files pertaining to individual courses, these records contain little about the history curriculum. There is, however, a great deal of material about the history faculty. The administrative files contain correspondence about appointments, tenure, and promotions; the faculty affairs files pertain to the service of the history faculty on various university committees; and the faculty correspondence files relate to teaching, writing, research, and other professional matters. There are also digital photographs documenting social and academic events held by the Department of History, 2005-2010. Department chairs who figure significantly in these records include J. G. de Roulhac Hamilton, R. D. W. Connor, Albert Ray Newsome, Wallace Everett Caldwell, Fletcher M. Green, Carl H. Pegg, James L. Godfrey, George V. Taylor, Don Higginbotham, and Gillian T. Cell.
