Scope and Contents of the Materials

In 1959, the Illinois Commission on Higher Education established a Committee to Recommend a State Plan for Public Higher Education in Illinois. It was composed of the state university presidents and representatives from junior colleges. Dr. Richard G. Browne was the chairman of the committee, and Dr. Gilbert Y. Steiner directed the study. Position papers, dealing with such topics as undergraduate, graduate, and professional education, economic development, and public services, were submitted by faculty members at various institutions, while the small permanent staff developed a series of statements of agreement out of which a thirteen point statement of guidelines was developed for a state higher education plan.

The papers in this collection constitute the files of the study director and his associates in preparing the report. The collection includes the director's correspondence and papers dealing with the establishment, planning, and operation of the study, as well as correspondence and papers from consultants and various members of the committee.
