President Raleigh Holmstedt Records
Scope and Contents
President Raleigh Holmstedt's records consist mostly of speeches, correspondence, university budgets, and reports. The majority of the speeches cover recurring events such as university convocations with faculty and students, Honors Day observances, and commencements. Correspondence, while not comprehensive of Holmstedt's tenure at Indiana State, mostly deals with invitations to commencement or homecoming and responses to job applications for faculty positions. The university budgets summarize the salary, equipment, and facility costs for Indiana State. The last major set of records includes reports to the faculty and a set of reports of the state of the university. The remaining folders cover a number of other records President Holmstedt was party to including faculty directories, an accreditation agenda for a university Holmstedt helped review, records from his inauguration, and a copy of sheet music by Mary Holmstedt for the class of 1957.
