Abstract

The records consist of the first list of correspondence courses offered by the University of Nevada, the Home Study at the University of Nevada Announcement of Courses (1948); reports of registration for correspondence courses from June 1947 through November 1949, and correspondence involving finances through early 1950.

Administrative History

In June 1947, administrative responsibility for correspondence study was unofficially transferred from the College of Arts and Science to the Office of Admissions and Records, with the change officially established in 1948. There was a Director of Correspondence from 1947 through June 1948. That position became the Director of Correspondence and Extension in June 1948. The Correspondence Study Department was conducted in conjunction with the Extension Department. The first extension class was conducted in the spring of 1948. In early 1950, the Correspondence Study Department was separated from the Office of Admissions and Records and transferred to the School of Education. The Correspondence Study Department existed from 1945-1960. Dr. M. W. Deming served as the Director of Correspondence and Extension in the late 1940s.
