History

Mildred Percival Sherman was appointed the first Dean of College Relations in 1950. She was in charge of liaison with alumnae, fundraising and special projects. The title and office were dropped after her death in 1961.

Arrangement

The collection is arranged in three series:

SCOPE AND CONTENT

Collection includes correspondence and fundraising material from the Committee on Resources, among others, 1913-1949; campaign material including analysis of 1928 alumnae questionnaires and background information on Ann Radcliffe, 1928-1930; and Mildred Sherman's speeches, correspondence files, etc., 1940-1958.
Series 1 and 2 of this record group include papers concerned with fund raising campaigns before she took office and are therefore papers inherited by not generated by her. Series 3 includes Mildred Percival Sherman's papers. Other material of this office was transferred to the Fund Office, and is found in RG IIIA.
