Scope and Contents

The material in this collection consists of records from the Office of Communications. The colection is divided into six series: Records, Campus Environmental Committee, Photo Contact Sheets, Photos, News Releases, and President Palamountain Files. The first series, Records, is the largest as it takes up 7 cubic feet, covering mostly student and faculty affairs with some files specifically pertaining to president Palamountain. The second series consists entirely of records from the Campus Environmental Committee such as reports and correspondence. The third and fourth series are related as the third contains the contact sheets for the photographs in the fourth. The fifth series is the shortest, containing only news releases over a three-year time span. Finally the sixth series consists of records related only to Skidmore President Joseph Palamountain, such as speeches and news clippings.
