Acquisition and Processing Information: The Manuscript File Collection was initiated by University Archivist Ruth Gallaher, Ph.D., in 1931. Records and individual documents were collected from numerous administrative offices and academic departments during her tenure, from 1931 to about 1946, and by her successors until about 1963. As the collection was the first institutional attempt to document University of Iowa history, it is considered the "foundation" historical collection of the University Archives. Finding aid prepared by Matthew Schaefer and Denise Anderson; posted to the Internet 12/2006.

Scope and Contents

The Manuscript File Collection on Early University History is a rich source on 19th-century and early 20th-century developments at the University of Iowa. It consists of the University's earliest known records documenting its business transactions, academic activity, and external communications. For the most part the material was prepared or received by William J. Haddock (1832-1906), secretary to the Board of Trustees, later Regents, from 1864 to 1901. It is also considered the "foundation" collection of the University Archives, as it resulted from the first institutional attempts to document University of Iowa history.

Many types of records comprise the collection: correspondence, receipts from Iowa City businesses and those located in Des Moines, Chicago, New York and elsewhere, official memos, expense records, contractor’s bids, applications for employment, letters of reference, resignations, status reports of buildings and departments, supply requests, signed protests and petitions, statistics about students, salary negotiations, comparisons of UI course requirements to other U.S. universities, information regarding societies and organizations, lab teaching assistants (called demonstrators), hospital rules, numerous investigations, Army regulations, ROTC memos, alcohol issues, student workers, student aid, University publications, scholarships, honorary degrees, University expeditions, University branches, local and state governing boards, lawsuits, fees and tuition, and land deeds.

Items of interest include the original document of an act in 1898 to create a state board of control to govern public institutions of higher learning in Iowa, and a letter conferring an honorary law degree upon Booker T. Washington in 1902 (SEE: Registrar's Office: Honorary Degrees).

There is an index to the collection following the box contents list below, which may be used in conjunction with the box contents list. It identifies categories and individuals referenced in this collection, and in many cases indicates where pertinent folders are located. Note that some location information in the index is now obsolete.

According to the general catalogs, the Laboratory was called the Chemical Laboratory from the 1863 – 1864 school year through the 1869 – 1870 year.  The laboratory was called the Physical Science Laboratory from 1870 – 1871 through 1887 – 1888.  The 1888 – 1889 Catalog lists the laboratory as both the Physical Science Laboratory and the Chemistry Laboratory.  Both of these departments were located in North Hall at that time, and perhaps the terms were used interchangeably.  After 1890 however, the Chemical Laboratory was housed in the new Chemical Laboratory Building, while the Physical Science Laboratory remained in North Hall.  Therefore, all papers relating to either of these laboratories prior to 1890 (when the Chemical Laboratory was constructed), are filed under Physical Science: Laboratory.  Papers dated after 1890 are filed under Chemical Laboratory, unless they clearly relate to Physics.

Physical Laboratory

According to the general catalogs, the Laboratory was called the Chemical Laboratory from the 1863 – 1864 school year through the 1869 – 1870 year.    The laboratory was called the Physical Science Laboratory from 1870 – 1871 through 1887 – 1888.    The 1888 – 1889 Catalog lists the laboratory as both the Physical Science Laboratory and the Chemistry Laboratory.    Both of these departments were located in North Hall at that time, and perhaps the terms were used interchangeably.    After 1890 however, the Chemical Laboratory was housed in the new Chemical Laboratory Building, while the Physical Science Laboratory remained in North Hall.    Therefore, all papers relating to either of these laboratories prior to 1890 (when the Chemical Laboratory was constructed), are filed under Physical Science: Laboratory.    Papers dated after 1890 are filed under Chemical Laboratory, unless they clearly relate to Physics.
