Scope and Contents

The collection includes material from Alvin Duke Chandler's terms as president of the College William and Mary and later chancellor of the Colleges of William and Mary. The collection documents the administration of William and Mary in the mid-twentieth century and includes the routine hiring and resignation of faculty, student matters, alumni relations, and related matters. William and Mary was a small college at the time and many matters passed through the Office of the President.

The collection also reflects changing norms in the United States at the time as seen through applications by African Americans for admission and rules enforced by the administration on students.

For the most part, headings assigned to folders in their office of origin have been maintained in the box list inventories available here.
