Scope and Contents of the Materials

In 1961, the Illinois General Assembly established the Illinois Board of Higher Education as a permanent planning and coordinating agency. The Board was required to develop a comprehensive Master Plan for Illinois higher education which would encompass the roles of public and private universities, colleges, and two year colleges. In its preparation, the Board established ten committees and three advisory committees. In 1964, the Board considered the final recommendations of the ten study committees and the three advisory committees and adopted its Provisional Master Plan. Thereafter it was discussed at various public meetings throughout the state.

This collection relates to the preparation of the Provisional Master Plan, and is divided into five categories: correspondence and papers relative to Committee D; correspondence and papers relative to Committee J; papers concerning and emanating from the Board; preliminary and final reports of the committees and the Provisional Master Plan; and papers relative to the University of Illinois Faculty Conference on the Final Reports. The Committee D papers primarily relate to Dr. Thomas Page's statistical tabulations which constituted the data portion of the report on Collegiate Programs. Committee J primarily contains the correspondence of correspondence of Dr. Samuel K. Gove, a committee member. The papers of the Board include reports of the Executive Director, basic policy questions, staff recommendations, and other papers and publications relating to the preparation of the plan.

The Institute of Government and Public Affairs donated the collection to the Illinois Historical Survey in 1975.
