Collection Overview

Scope and Content
The early Centre College Presidential Papers were compiled in 1983 from a mass of papers found in various campus locations. Since there was no comprehenisve order, and since no complete runs of papers existed for any one President, the main body of the presidential papers was not dilineated by sub-groups. Instead, all the early papers were simply divided by type of document, or series, and given a corresponding series designation.
Sometime later two complete sets of presidential files were located in the basement of Old Centre. The first was a series of files on various subjects maintained by Centre presidents approximately from the 1920's to the 1940's, although a few documents from ealier and later years had been interfiled. This collection was designated as the Subject Files Series. The second set was designated the Walter A. Groves Papers.

Contents of the Collection

Correspondence Series, 1823-1946

A large precentage of the early presidential papers center on three presidents: John C. Young (1830-1857), Ormond Beatty (1868-1888), and Frederick W. Hinitt (1904-1915). Much of President Young's correspondence concerns his efforts at fund raising, scholarships, the hiring of faculty, and discussions of slavery. Dr. Beatty's correspondence concerns fund raising, the building and dedication of Old Main, faculty relations, land and investing, relations between the northern and southern synods of the Presbyterian Church, and the conferring of honorary degrees. Dr. Hinitt's correspondence concerns the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, intercollegiate athletics, campus buildings, the General Education Board (Rockefeller Fund), and public schools. There is a small run of correspondence during William Ganfield's term concerning the student Army Training Corps and World War I, reports of the state of Centre, endowments, and the General Education Board. There is a significant amount of correspondence during Hewlett's term as acting president (1942-1944), almost all of which concerns Centre and the Army Air Corps' 20th College Training Detachment.
