REPORT TO THE
BOARD OF CONTROL BY THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
The Florida Uni'versity System has experienced perhaps its two
most eventful and productive years since its creation. This report
reflects for the System and the Board of Control the projects and
programs which have been established to meet the demands of a rapidly
growing state and the needs of her citizens to keep abreast educationally
The Board of Control is the legally constituted agency for policy
and supervision of the State University System and is responsible for
the development of a coordinated system of higher education to serve
the State. Our State can achieve its potential greatness only with an
outstanding university system. The Board of Control during the last
biennium has worked diligently to develop the State University System
as a group of universities of national distinction in their respective

At the direction of the Board of Control, the Board staff with the
cooperation of the universities has engaged in studies which have and
will assist in the efficient management of the universities and the coord-

nation of the System. The results of the principal studies undertaken
by the Board will be reflected in the request of the Board to the 1963
Session of the Legislature.
Included in the staff studies are:
Role and Scope Studies
Space Inventory and Utilization Studies
Cost Studies on the Operation of the University System
Enrollment Studies and Projected Needs
Student Fee Studies
Personnel Salary Studies
Junior College Studies (Attendance Plans and Academic Perform-
ance of Transfer Students)
Feasibility Study for a New Institution of Higher Learning to Be
Located in Pensacola
Year-Round Operation of the State Universities
Each of these studies enable the Board of Control to more intelli-
gently examine the operation of the University System and to project
its future growth and the needs and demands which it must meet. The
request of the 1963 Session of the Legislature will not be based on
guesswork but will be founded on careful studies and inventories, on
the analysis of institutional needs, and on the documented budgetary
needs of each of the institutions.
YEAR-ROUND OPERATION OF THE STATE
The State of Florida has proceeded systematically to make provision
for its rapidly growing collegiate enrollments. Following carefully
formulated plans the State has established a state-wide system of locally
controlled community junior colleges, and it has expanded and further
developed the State University System in an effort to provide suitable
educational opportunities for the increasing numbers of students who
are both willing and able to profit from education beyond the high
Concurrently there developed an awareness that the State's ability
to provide for all of the students who are qualified and desire to attend
college in Florida is contingent in part upon the attainment of fuller
utilization of existing and new institutional facilities. While steps
were being taken to increase the utilization of instructional space under
the semester calendar, the Board of Control developed an active interest
in utilization of the plant throughout the entire year. The Board of
Control in November, 1959, directed that a careful study be made of the
advisability of operating the State University System on a year-round
6 REPORT OF EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
Following preliminary examination of the possibilities for year-
round operation the System-Wide Committee on Admissions proposed
that serious consideration be given to the possibility of financing such
operations under a trimester plan.
The 1961 Session of the Florida Legislature indicated its serious
interest in year-round operation of the State universities by providing
for each of the universities a supplementary appropriation for the year
1962-63 that is contingent upon "the full implementation of a trimester
or four-quarter plan", including the requirements that the universities
"take whatever steps may be necessary to encourage a uniform level
of enrollment throughout each of the instructional periods."
Upon the recommendation of the Executive Director the Board
of Control at its July 1961 meeting determined that all of the institu-
tions in the State University System will operate under the same type
of year-round plan and that the several institutional calendars will
be uniform with respect to the dates associated with the opening of
each of the terms. At that same meeting the Board instructed its
Executive Director, working with the Council of Presidents and the
System-Wide Committee on Calendar, to provide it with recommenda-
tions concerning the plan for consideration by the Board.
The Executive Director recommended and it was approved by the
Board that the following policy concerning the calendar for the State
University System be adopted by the Board of Control effective for the
The institutions in the State University System shall operate
under a trimester plan with three terms of from 15 to 16 weeks in
length each year. Each of the institutions and the System as a whole
shall make every reasonable effort to attain and to maintain a uniform
distribution of instructional load throughout the three terms.
The institutional calendars shall be so arranged that the first tri-
mester of each year closes immediately prior to Christmas and that the
dates associated with the opening of each term will be essentially uni-
form throughout the System.
There shall be a System-Wide Committee on Calendar to (a) advise
the Board of Control through the Council of Presidents concerning the
ways in which a uniform distribution of the instructional load can be
achieved and (b) recommend annually to the Council of Presidents the
dates associated with the opening of each term.
Provision shall be made in the third trimester for a period of seven
to eight weeks for the enrollment of teachers employed in the public
schools and for other students desiring to enter or to continue their
studies during that period. Any of the universities may offer a similar
period at the beginning of the third trimester.
REPORT OF EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR 7
THE ROLE AND SCOPE STUDY
The most significant study undertaken by the Board of Control
has dealt with the role and function of the institutions within the
University System. To improve coordination the Board of Control in
1960 firmly decided that each of the universities would develop a long-
range master plan to guide their growth within their respective roles.
The study is to be a continuing role and scope study of each institution
of the University System. The policies established to guide this co-
ordination effort are the following:
A. The initiative for the development of the progress and service
in the State University System generally rests with each of the
B. While each institution will exercise initiative in the develop-
ment of these proposals, it will be expected that each institu-
tion will work in conjunction with the other institutions of the
System and with the staff of the Board of Control so that
each will understand the future plans of the System.
C. The Board of Control will expect at all times to keep abreast
of the planning of each institution.
D. Plans will be outlined for 1965, 1970, and 1975 as well as for
the indeterminate future beyond that time.
E. The project will focus on instructional services, research pro-
grams, extension service, student services and activities (includ-
ing athletics), other auxiliary activities and enterprises, and
F. The proposals of the respective institutions for their long-range
development will come to the Board of Control for review and
decision. The Board of Control will determine the role and
scope of each of the universities.
G. The Executive Director of the Board of Control is assigned
the responsibility for the continuing role and scope project.
The Council of Presidents serves as a steering committee
including the institutional role and scope directors who serve
as a coordinating and working committee for the project.
The Director of the Community Junior College Division of
the State Department of Education and the President of the
Florida Association of Public Junioi Colleges serve in a
liaison capacity at the level of the system-wide role and scope
committee. Private institutions of higher learning in Florida
are kept informed by the Executive Director. The Southern
Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools is kept informed
by the Presidents and the Executive Director.
8 REPORT OF EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
By the Spring of 1962, the universities had prepared analyses of
their programs of instruction, research, and service. From these analy-
ses the universities developed proposals for their growth through 1965,
1970, and 1975. These analyses served as the basis for coordination
and reduction of uneconomical duplication of function.
The continuing role and scope project of the Board of Control will
produce three pr,,gr..;s reports during 1962. The first role and scope
progress report, July, 1962, will make recommendations for allocation of
functions in the fields of nursing. engitiveriiai. city and regional plan-
ning, and the university press. The second pr,.igrs.-s report in October,
1962, will make recommendations in the fields of medicine, dentistry,
and health related services; modern foreign lainuages; business; techni-
cal institute (at FAMU); music; and journalism and communications.
The third progress report will be in No'.vmber of 1962 and will make
recommendations in the field of biological sciences.
The role and scope function, being the program coordination func-
tion in the System, will be a continuous process and a permanent part
of the management of the State University System.
THE FLORIDA SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF
AND THE BLIND
In the spring of 1961 it was determined by the staff of the Board of
Control that the housing, dining, and classroom facilities at the Florida
School for the Deaf and the Blind were inadequate for more than 615
pupils. The Board placed an enrollment limit upon the School of 615
pupils which became effective in the fall of 1961 and which will remain
in force until additional accommodations are provided at the School.
The Board staff conducted a thorough study of the School which will
be completed and published in December, 1962, under the title A Study
of the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind. This study has already
resulted in a number of recommendations for action which would enable
the School to meet its responsibilities to the deaf and the blind pupils
of Florida through the 1972-73 school year.
Among the actions recommended in A Study of the Florida School
for the Deaf and Blind were:
1. Needed dormitories and classroom buildings be built by the fall
2. A new school for the blind be opened by the fall of 1969 and
only the deaf be taught in the present school thereafter.
3. School authorities, rather than boards of county commissioners,
be given authority to determine eligibility of applicants for
admission to the School.
REPORT OF EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR 9
4. All teachers at the School become certified to teach in Florida.
5. Continuing contracts be offered to teachers of demonstrated
6. The salaries of teachers and other employees be raised to the
level of salaries paid to others occupying similar positions in
7. The vocational program of the School be modernized.
8. The School for the Deaf and the Blind enter into cooperative
relationships with other agencies serving the deaf and the
blind and the teachers of exceptional children to the end that
combined efforts shall produce a better education and rehabili-
tation program for handicapped persons in Florida.
9. Teachers at the School for the Deaf and the Blind conduct ap-
plied research and be kept informed of developments in the
field of exceptional child education.
10. Two full-time parental counselors be employed and the PTA
organization of the School be asked to furnish volunteers to
counsel the parents of blind or deaf children.
11. The School take steps which will lead to full accreditation by
the Accreditation Service, Florida State Department of Edu-
12. The school year be made equivalent to that of the regular
public school system in Florida, and teachers be employed on
a ten-month basis.
13. The Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind be placed under
a new and separate board of trustees which shall report directly
to the State Board of Education.
The report of the President of the Florida School for the Deaf and
the Blind is presented later in this volume.
GOVERNOR'S CONFERENCES ON
Realizing that higher education and related research are key factors
in the continued development of Florida, Governor Farris Bryant in-
vited various citizens and professional groups to assist by their recom-
mendations in the strengthening of the services rendered through the
Florida University System.
Governor Bryant requested that the Board of Control and its staff
coordinate recommendations from those concerned groups and shape
for him the program and the needs of higher education in Florida.
10 REPORT OF EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
The first conference was held on May 29, 1962, and from its discus-
sions numerous proposals emerged for meeting demands and opportuni-
ties of the space era. Some of the more widely discussed proposals were:
a new space university; a research center; a comprehensive science
information center; an oceanographic institute; and advanced educa-
tional programs for the education of engineers and scientists. These
proposals came from committies and professional groups who formulated
plans to meet the needs in their respective communities and professions
but underlying all of this was the realization that the space era presents
unique opportunities for Florida.
As an outgrowth of this first conference, with the approval and
assistance of Governor Bryant and the voluntary financial support of
business leaders in this state, the Board of Control launched the Florida
Space Era Education Study under the direction of Dr. Ralph W. Mc-
Two other such conferences are scheduled from which will be com-
plied the recommendations of this group and the Florida Space Era
Education Study. The results can only be the improvement and strength-
ening of the State System of higher education in such a manner as to
move Florida rapidly into the advancing tide of scientific and technologi-
THE FLORIDA ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY
Intensive study and planning were undertaken at the direction of
the Board of Control prior to the establishment of Florida Atlantic
University. The planning was formalized into two major reports:
"Tentative Plans for the State University at Boca Raton, Florida,"
(November, 1959), prepared by Mr. John E. Ivey; and "Report of the
Planning Commission of a New University at Boca Raton," (June,
1961). These two reports formed the general guidelines of the develop-
ment of Florida Atlantic University. The Brumbaugh report, as accepted
by the Board of Control, has become the determining factor for con-
tinuing program planning and development with the university being
confined to the last two years of undergraduate and graduate instruction.
At present the program of instruction is being developed in three
major areas: the social sciences; the humanities; and the natural
sciences (physical sciences, biological sciences, and mathematics).
Detailed program development in each of these areas and inter-areas
coordinated will be affected as rapidly as the faculty and staff are
More detailed planning and program development now becomes
the responsibility of the administration and faculty of the university
under the direction of Dr. Kenneth R. Williams, who was named Presi-
dent in May, 1962.
REPORT OF EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR 11
The future schedule for Florida Atlantic University includes the
addition of key resource personnel in the summer of 1'.I.', and the
operating budget for 1962-63 will provide for a number of key pro-
fessional positions together with adequate service personnel. The
general timetable for the building program calls for the final working
drawings and specifications to have been completed and approved
by the Board so that contracts may be let by January, 1963. Florida
Atlantic University will accept its first class (juniors) in September of
Florida Atlantic University is to be unique in its approach to
higher education and in many respects its programs will experimental.
The Board of Control has charged the administration of the institution
to build a university which will employ in its educational programs the
finest methods and facilities available. The members of the Board of
Control are convinced that under the direction of President Williams
and with the carefully conceived plans for the institution, Florida
Atlantic will become an outstanding model university and a credit to
the University System and all of Florida.
FLORIDA INSTITUTE FOR CONTINUING
The Florida Institute was activated in response to need for ex-
panded service in December, 1961, as the successor to the General
Extension Division of Florida, to provide the means for the University
System to meet the wide-range educational needs of Florida residents
whose jobs or activities will not permit them to leave for long periods
of campus residence. A growing population, a growing space-age in-
dustrialization, and growing demand for knowledge needed for a higher
standard of living were the determining factors in the creation of the
The Institute is not a self-sufficient unit. It is an administrative
unit of the University System which works with all of the institutions
of higher learning, public and private, in the State and maintains
a close liaison with all adult educational agencies and organizations,
so that full utilization of the State's educational resources can be
Through the vehicle of the Institute the State universities extend
their programs and services to off-campus locations and all of the
instructional services of the State universities are the responsibility
of the Florida Institute, except those provided for on-campus resident
students and those of the cooperative extension services in agriculture
and home economics. The program of the Institute also encompasses
instructional services for credit courses by correspondence, student
credit courses, and non-credit instructional activities such as workshops,
institutes, conferences, short courses, and seminars.
12 REPORT OF EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
The Florida Institute is charged with these basic responsibilities:
1. To assess the needs for off-campus instruction and recommend
priorities for meeting them;
2. To approve and arrange for university-level programs to be
conducted for off-campus students;
3. To receive and administer all funds for the support of off-
campus instructional services;
4. To provide conditions off-campus for the operation of instruc-
tional programs with the same quality as those programs being
offered on campus.
Determining the Course Needs Offered through the
In the first year of its operation the Institute concentrated its
service in the more populous and growing areas where the educational
needs have been heaviest; but there has been a continuing effort to meet
the general educational needs throughout the State. Course needs are
appraised by the Institute personnel on the basis of conferences with
interested business and professional leaders and the county superin-
tendent as well as other public school officials within the various
communities and through surveys and questionnaries circulated by in-
dustry personnel directors and the personnel of the local school boards.
Tentative lists are prepared of courses of heaviest demand. The Institute
must then determine whether these demands can be met in existing
public or private educational institutions. Generally the Institute will
plan its course offerings to serve an area covering not more than a
50-mile radius of the location of the course.
The Institute has no instructional personnel and the course offer-
ings are limited by the personnel which can be made available by the
universities for off-campus instruction. When the Institute determines
the needs, they are submitted to the universities where the final decision
is made by the university administration as to whether or not an
instructor will be supplied. In some instances there is in a community an
exceptionally qualified instructor for a particular course offering and
the Institute will recommend to one of the universities of the System
that this individual be appointed to its faculty for this function. If
the university finds that the individual fully satisfies the standards for
on-campus faculty and elects to appoint the individual, he becomes
a temporary member of the faculty with his rate of compensation
being determined by the administration of the university.
At present there are many demands for graduate courses which
cannot be filled by the universities through the Institute. One of the
most critical areas is business administration and accounting brought
about as a result of the inability of the institutions to free sufficient
personnel to meet the demand.
REPORT OF EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR 13
It is not always possible for the demand for a course to be substan-
tiated until the course is announced and the (qaliufiL-d students sign up
and pay their fees. Sometimes it is necessary to cancel a course or
relocate it if the actual egiestration does not meet the projected demand.
As a rule of thumb, the Institute has established a required minimum
registration of 13 students for a particular class section to be initiated.
Average class sizes are at this time approximately 2.- students.
The Orgairization of the Florida Institute for Continuing
University r tidies
The president of the Florida Iii-t;tuti is selected by the Board of
Control with the concurrence of the S.tati Board of Education and
holds office at the pleasure of the Board of Control. lie is assigned the
rank and status of a president in the State University System and is
held responsible to the Board of Control for the effective and efficient
manner of all off-campus instructional services of the State University
For the purpose of coordinating the instructional programs of the
universities the Institute is organized into three divisions, each headed
by a dean:
1. The Division of Advanced Studies is r-p..n-il.l, for the uni-
versity-level instructional programs given in off-campus lo-
cations, including credit courses toward graduate (l, rL'c-.
2. The Division of General Extension is responsible for credit
correspondence courses and for non-credit short courses and
workshops designed to provide the people of Florida with ready
access to information which will serve them in their public and
3. The Division of Radio and T, I, .-. --',a in cooperation with the
Florida Educational Television Commission is rcpuinsible for
the development and use of video-taped college credit courses,
used by the community junior colleges, the State universities,
and the State Educational Television Network.
In addition to these divisions the President has an administrative
staff which facilitates the operation of these divisions by management
of the fiscal and business affairs, library services, academic records
and reports, planning and evaluation, and informational services. These
areas are supervised by a business manager, registrar, director of
library services, director of information, and director of evaluation. From
time to time the staff will also utilize the services of personnel paid
entirely from grant and donation funds.
The three divisions and the administrative staff of the President
comprise the first level of the organization. The second level under the
President will be the centers which serve as the local administrative
14 REPORT OF EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
unit for off-campus instruction. A center is envisioned not as a uni-
versity campus but as a local unit which brings together the resources
of the community, classrooms, laboratories, library facilities, and makes
them available to the faculties of the universities which will offer full
credit college instruction to the citizens of the area. Each center is to
be under the management of a coordinator supported only by a minimum
The instructional programs of the centers of the Florida Institute
are to be programs of the accredited State universities and the academic
control over the programs and the granting of degrees are exercised by
the respective universities. Five centers are planned at present:
1. In the Tampa Bay Center programs for teachers are given
on a graduate residence basis on the campus of the University
of South Florida; and a carefully planned program leading
to a Master of Engineering Degree in electrical engineering
is being conducted for scientists and engineers utilizing facilities
of the St. Petersburg Junior College and other instructional
facilities made available in Pinellas County.
2. In the Broward-Palm Beach Center a program leading to the
Master's Degree in mechanical engineering is conducted at
Riviera Beach and a program in electrical engineering is being
developed at Ft. Lauderdale. Programs for teachers to be con-
ducted on a graduate residence basis are developing in coopera-
tion with the Florida Atlantic University.
3. In the Brevard-Orange Center engineering programs leading
to the Master's Degree are being developed and conducted in
facilities made available in Winter Park by Rollins College
and in facilities provided by Patrick Air Force Base. Related
programs in management will be developed there as soon as
resources are available. Programs for teachers to be conducted
on a graduate residence basis are being developed to meet the
heavy needs for in-service education of school personnel.
4. The West Florida Center embracing the area west of the
Apalachicola River includes programs at the Gulf Coast Center
headquartered at the Gulf Coast Junior College at Panama City
and programs being developed in Pensacola.
5. The Duval Center being developed on the campus of the Jackson-
ville University will include a wide range of programs required
in that metropolitan area and made possible by the resources
of that university and by the micro-wave link to the campus
of the University of Florida.

1960 to June 30, 1962
On a December morning midway in the first year of this biennium a committee
of 13 University faculty members gathered in a conference room to begin work on a
mammoth task that was to be among the most significant of recent years. I in,., i ,i..-
of hours of extra effort on the part of the faculty and staff were consumed in the
months of work that followed this first meeting. From these I..rr.-, grew a self-study
and role and scope report more comprehensive, more exhaustive, than any previous-
ly undertaken by the University.
Concerned with serving the gr.,..in. needs of a dynamic state, the University
of Florida welcomed this opportunity to examine in minute detail both the effec-
tiveness and vitality of present educational programs and how they could be
strengthened, as well as the total future role and scope of the institution.
Reference is made to the self-evaluation and role and scope project at the
beginning of this report because the activities involved in this study exemplify
much of what has concerned the University of Florida iurin; the past two years.
This has been a biennium characterized by gitnr' and il ri' by an awareness
of the great challenges that lie ahead; and by growing concern that this University
have both the tools to seize the opportunities ahead and the liberty to use them.
During these two years Flotida and this University have found themselves on the
threshold of great scientific, industrial, and cultural advance. A great deal or study
has been devoted to appraising the dinirn,.imorm, of our opportunities. Concern has
been expressed, and will continue to be expressed, that this state provide the
means by which can be achieved for Florida an excellence in higher education
that will be unsurpassed anywhere.
Balanced with this concern has been pride in the accomplishments or a dedi-
cated faculty and staff and a superior student body during a difficult period of
change. The faculty has performed mia.inifi.. -ntly, even ih...I.'H called upon to pre-
pare for a program of year-round operation in an absolute minimum of time. Their
continuing devotion to extending the frontiers of knowlii.1., both in the classroom
and the laboratory, warrant tribute from all ihe people ot Florida. Substantial pro-
gress toward -Ir.r.iding. this faculty salaries in keeping with those of comparable
institutions was accomplished in this biennium. However, fulI realization of this
goal is yet to be accomplished and will continue to be a major aim in the coming
By qualitative measures such as test scores and objective examinations, it
has been apparent that the student body is well above the national average. Per-
haps more important than these measures has been their demonstration in the class-
room and elsewhere of a growing concern for the seriousness of their responsibility
to gain the most from their opportunity for enlightenment. Student leadership has
been of the highest quality and has continually shared with the faculty and staff a
concern for the enrichment of the University community.
2 UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
During this biennium I have valued the understanding and support of The
Honorable Baya Harrison, Chairman of the Board, and other members of the Board
of Control who have given so liberally of their time to assist in considering the
problems of the University. To the Governor, The Honorable Farris Bryant, and
the vast numbers of other state officials with whom administrative matters have
been shared, I express the deepest appreciation.
J. Wayne Reitz
The first freshman of the class of 1964 arrived on the University of Florida
campus in June 1960. He was not scheduled to begin classes until September, some
three months later. Yet, by the middle of A-\u.' s of that summer, he and nearly
1,437 of his future classmates had undergone extensive counseling, academic
orientation, and had completed registration for first year course work.
These prospective freshmen were taking part in a two-day early registration
program designed to provide beginning students -- and their parents -- with an un-
hurried opportunity to become familiar with the responsibilities they would face in
college life. Carefully planned briefings, followed by opportunity for questions,
explored the educational resources and facilities available. Groupings were kept
small so that each student could be provided ample opportunity to seek out answers
to the questions he felt important. A majority of the class of 1964 were accompa-
nied by one or more parents during these unique programs. These too asked ques-
tions and went home with a much better understanding of the problems students
face in making adjustments to college life.
Early registration programs at the University of Florida reached maturity during
the biennium. Begun in 1959 as an experimental means of 'crtin; students off to
better academic starts and offsetting the pitfalls of bigness, the summer programs
have proved convincingly their worth.
In another effort to implement a desire to retain, despite growing enrollment,
a high degree of concern for the individual student, a program for superior students
was established. Due to pressure on faculty time, the program is currently limited
to fifty new students from each entering class. These students are carefully selected
using high school records, placement test scores, college board scores, and an
exhaustive interview as the means of selection.
Once admitted, students in the superior student program are placed in very
small classes which are conducted by highly motivated teachers, making it possible
for these students to go into the subject fields as far as they are willing to do so.
Subject matter includes the social sciences, physical sciences, English, logic,
chemistry, humanities, and biological sciences. Flexibility in technique has made
it possible to use the classroom as a place in which the student puts his extensive
reading and writing to the test of his peers and his teachers rather than a place in
which he is lectured to. The combination of such re-.iin-, a great deal of writing,
and an opportunity to talk about and question what he and others have done is pro-
ductive of the sort of critical development that marks real learning.
The primary emphasis in this program is presently limited to the first two years
of study in the University College. It is hoped that the program can be moved on
into all the major units of the University with course and curriculum adjustments.
During the biennium there was increasing evidence of the impact selective
admission has had in stimulating interest in the academic program of the Univer-
4 UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
sity. Student leaders continued to show a growing concern for enriching the educa-
tional experience of their fellow students. Student government sponsored the es-
tablishment of a Student. Tutor Society. Fraternity, sorority, and other socially
oriented orL.anizations made substantial progress toward the achievement of high
scholastic standards among their members. A "How to Study" program conducted
by the housing staff was well received by freshmen. These were but a few of many
indications that University of Florida students increasingly value an atmosphere
of scholarly stimulation. Much of this growing awareness by the student body can-
not be easily documented. It is an attitude more than an action. It is many little
things rather than a few big ones. But, most agree it is a real thing. Faculty, staff,
students, and even some visiting alumni remark about it.
As difficult as may be the task of documenting something so elusive as a
changing attitude, there is no shortage of indications that the University student
body ranks well above the national average in performance. A variety of test scores,
as well as the practical proof of their desirability to college recruiting officers from
the nearly 500 employers who visit the campus, has made this an irrefutable fact.
Though the scores themselves are confidential, official records indicate that
the University of Florida students who took the Medical College Admissions Test,
a nationally administered standard test, rank substantially above national norms.
The same is true for those taking the Law School Test.
Many graduates receive ROTC commissions upon graduation and enter the
military for a tour of duty. In 1961 the Army provided figures to indicate that 51
percent of University of Florida graduates that they commissioned between 1959
and 1961 ranked in the upper one third of their class in the various service schools
they attended with graduates of other ROTC programs. Not a single Florida gradu-
ate failed to complete one of these schools.
Also in 1961 every graduate of the University's College of Education made a
satisfactory score on the National Teacher's Examination recently established as a
criteria for meritorious teacher classification.
Though the need for greater financial support of student financial aid has been
evident for several years, such aid became a million dollar a year activity during
1961. Private and corporately supported scholarship and loan programs grew sub-
stantially during the biennium, but the National Defense Education Act loan pro-
gram continued to be the underwriter of more student financial aid than any other
Matching money for the National Defense Education act program has been
provided since inception of the program by a student-alumni "Dollars for Scholars"
effort. Alumni giving through the Loyalty Fund has been primarily channeled into
this project and to date 15,015 students have received $1,207,819.90 in loans as a
result of this drive. Federal matching funds are available at a 9 to 1 ratio and the
University has never had available sufficient matching money to obtain the maxi-
mum government money that could be obtained through this legislation.
UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM 5
Though not limited to the unldei r..Jiu it- program, a major concern of the Uni-
versity during the second year of the biennium was preparation for a system of
year-round operation as called for by Legislative action of 1961. The University of
Florida recommended to the Board of Control that the quarter system be adopted
as the preferable vehicle for year-round operation. Nevertheless, once the decision
was made to operate on a trimester calendar with an additional e-iht-iwet k session
for teachers in the summer, the University moved with vigor to insure the success
of this operation.
Planning to implement the program began in the fall of 1961 and was carried
on by the Schedule and Calendar Committee, which included representatives from
all instructional areas. Though the period of preparation was necessarily short,
since Legislative action called for beginning the year-round program in September
1962, every effort has been made to realize the goal of approximately equal course
offerings and equal student enrollment. However, during the first summer trimester,
1963, there is little likelihood that the enrollment will equal the spring trimester.
The University will graduate a large number of seniors in April since they will be
in phase on the old semester program. The influx of new students will not be as
great as it will be after public schools and junior colleges adjust their calendars
to accord with those of the universities. In addition, the real bulge of high school
graduates is two or three years removed.
The University encourages constant examination and evaluation of curricula
in all fields and many undergraduate programs underwent change durinii the bienni-
um. Much of the revision was minor and represented those changes brought about
by rapid advances in knowledge. Several units, however, made significant revi-
sions in their curriculum.
Major undergraduate curricular changes in the College of Business Adminis-
tration became effective with students entering the University after June 1961.
These changes involved a reduction from 18 to 9 in the number of major fields of
concentration offered; a reduction of approximately 50 percent in the amount of
specialization permitted within any one major field; an increase in the proportion
of liberal arts courses required; an increase in the extent and quality of the mathe-
matics, statistics, and English requirements; and ur..r.iiing in the core course
requirements for the business administration degree. Purpose of all revisions in
the business program was stronger emphasis on the quality of the educational
The College of Agrit uliure also made extensive changes in its curriculum.
These changes recognized the developing new concepts of agriculture and provided
specialization in agricultural science, agricultural business, and agricultural
technoloLev. Under this revised curricula the student still selects his major from
among the subject matter areas of his choice, but if he chooses the agricultural
science concentration takes additional work in physical and biological science and
6 UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
and mathematics, or in the agricultural business sequence, additional work in
agricultural economics and business administration. The program in technology
provides for students who desire to return to home farms or to other areas of actual
A Department of Anthropology was established during the biennium and courses

In recent years graduate study has caught the interest of all segments of
all American society. It is recognized that graduate schools must produce the
scientists and engineers to maintain our competitive position in defense and in-
dustrial production while simultaneously educating the economists, political scien-
tists, humanists and teachers to advance our cultural relations with the rest of the
world. It has become clearer as each year passes that the objective of all graduate
study is to produce professional persons whether the field of study is biology,
English, physics or sociology.
Progress in industry, government, commerce, education and social living de-
pends heavily upon the .ua.lit and quantity of such professional graduates. An
advanced technological society finds need for larger numbers of such graduates,
particularly at the doctoral level, than there are qualified student applicants.
Hence the long-term future is one of permanent shortage of advanced professional
personnel even though the graduate schools will be expanded as rapidly as they
can be staffed with distinguished faculties. A radu.ue school without a distin-
guished faculty engaged in research and scholarly activities would be an inherent
contradiction. Hence the attainable rate of expansion of graduate activities is
more restricted than that of undergraduate studies.
Much discussion has taken place in all states during the past year regarding
off-campus graduate work primarily as a service to industry. The need to upgrade
industrial employees in science and engineering is widespread. Some institutions
limit their efforts to offering extension courses, others have developed centers
where credit courses are provided. Also, several new university branches have
been developed. The problems of staffing such activities are grave because of the
basic shortage of graduate professors particularly in scientific fields. The Uni-
versity of Florida is making a strong effort to expand its resident faculty to meet
the needs of steadily increasing numbers of resident students. Stimultaneously
every effort is being made to employ faculty members who will give special atten-
tion to the needs at several industrial centers in Florida for advanced educational
opportunities. Progress is being made in this regard, but it will require a period
for faculty development at all Florida institutions of higher education before all
industrial needs can be met.
Continued growth of the graduate student body has occurred at a rate of above
5 per cent a year for the past five years. The influence of this growth is now
being felt in the production of doctorates. During 1961-62, 100 Ph.D. degrees
and 21 Ed.D. degrees have been awarded. Only three institutions in the South are
educating doctorates at an equivalent rate. In addition, 450 master's degrees were
earned. There has been a rapid growth in the number of postdoctoral students from
one in 1956 to twenty-seven in 1961. This trend in extending the formal educational
process beyond the award of the doctor's degree seems certain to increase with
the rapid growth of kno l,.lr .t. Even mature professors are included in training
programs sponsored by large foundations and the Federal government. The objec-
tive is to encoujr.i research or scholarly activity as a basis for improved teach-
8 UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
A number of significant developments of the Graduate School have occurred
during the past biennium. The Quantum Science Project has had a very successful
period of growth under the direction of Dr. Per Lowdin who is simultaneously a
professor at the University of Uppsala and a gr.>1lla.t, research professor at the
University of Florida. A grant from the Ford Foundation to the Graduate School
has made possible the transportation of Dr. Lowdin and his family from Sweden
each year to direct the research of graduate students and to guide the quantum
science research of the Departments of Physics and Chemistry. In addition, a
Winter Institute of Quantum Science has been conducted for five weeks each year
for professors of other institutions, industrial researchers and foreign visitors.
The 1961 Winter Institute brought 140 staff members and students together. Es-
sentially every graduate university in the U. S. was represented by a registrant,
and visitors from 20 foreign countries were in attendance. Grants totalling $122,000
from the National Science Foundation have made these highly successful confer-
The University of Florida was chosen by the U. S. Office of Education as one
of five institutions for the establishment of Latin-American Language and Area
Centers. The objective of these centers, each of which is subsidized to the extent
of $40,000 per year, is to train language and area specialists at the doctoral level
for service in Latin America. Such specialists are needed by government and in-
dustry. However, they are also needed as teachers of Latin-American languages
and area studies in U. S. universities. The great impetus for the study of these
subjects at all educational levels has created a shortage of teachers that must be
met before adequate numbers of specialists for service in Latin-American countries
can be provided. The graduate program of the Latin-American Language and Area
Center at the University of Florida will be a key factor in this international devel-
opment. Additional strength was also added to the University's Latin-American
activity by a grant of $130,000 in 1960 from the Rockefeller Foundation for Carib-
The Graduate School was selected by the Ford Foundation in 1960 as one of
the institutions to be awarded grants of about $200,000 for development of three-
year master's degree programs. The shortage of Ph.D.'s has made the use of teach-
ers with master's degrees necessary in nearly all junior colleges and four-year
colleges. The objective of this new program is to help supply such teachers at
the earliest possible date by compressing the usual period for completion of the
master's degree by about a year while increasing the teaching ability of the stu-
dents by a teaching apprenticeship and through a teaching seminar. The students
are being selected at the end of the sophomore year and guided toward completion
of both bachelor's and master's degrees three years later. Those students who
wish to become university professors will then be well prepared to complete the
Ph.D. degree in two additional years at an age which should average nearly five
years below that of Ph.D. graduates of the past decade. Thirty institutions are now
c.lf.a:cd in this accelerated program with which the University of Florida is pleased
to be associated.
A number of new graduate degree programs have been instituted since 1960.
Three new or reorganized Ph.D. programs were approved for the fields of Bio-
chemistry, Metallurgical Elnr.ineering and Nuclear Engineering. At the Master's
GRADUATE EDUCATION 9
level the following degrees were approved: Master of Science in Engineering with
specializations in % rri..uliur l Friiinc rinr and Metallurgical IF[,, ini rir,:; Master

the South with 44 areas in which the doctor's degree is awarded and 80 areas ap-

The volume of sponsored research at the University of Florida has grown
steadily over the 1960-62 biennium. The face value of contract research and re-
search grants from outside sources represented $4,598,263.54 on January 1, 1960
and had increased to $7,181,867.95 two years later. Correspondingly, the estimated
annual rate of expenditure had increased from $2,835,476.77 at the beginning of
the biennium to $4,388,689.86 two years later, an increase of 55 per cent.
The figures for research growth of individual colleges over a five-year period
are interesting and significant for the future. From June 1956 to June 1961 the face
value of sponsored research contracts and grants in agriculture and forestry in-
creased from $415,345 to $542,742, an increase of about 30 per cent. Over this
period the College of Arts and Sciences increased its sponsored research from
$275,554 to $1,535,092 or 550 per cent. The figures for the College of Medicine
show an increase from $33,699 to $1,277,402 which would have little meaning if
expressed as a percentage increase.
Measures of Research Strength
One measure of research quality is the number of postdoctoral research fellows
attending an institution because the postdoctoral fellow can usually select the
institution that he desires to attend. In 1956 only one postdoctoral research fellow
was studying at the University of Florida. In 1961-62, 27 postdoctoral research
fellows were enrolled although only a single postdoctoral fellowship was budgeted
from state funds through the Graduate School. Another significant development has
been that of summer research appointments for faculty. Ten have been made avail-
able each summer of the biennium 1960-62. These appointments have in essentially
all cases resulted in measurable achievements through publications. Finally, the
appointment of eight nationally distinguished graduate research professorships in
eight departments of the University within the past two biennia is a further indica-
tion that the University of Florida is maturing as a research institution. This may
be further substantiated by the research publication record of several departments.
As one example, the Department of Chemistry increased its scientific publications
over the past five years from 20 to 65 annually.
Future Volume of Research
It is possible to plot and then project into future years one significant factor
in sponsored research growth, that is, the volume of research contracts and grants.
Three types of extrapolation are indicated on the following graph. The lowest line
is an extrapolation based upon the past rate ofgrowth of contracts and grants at
the University of Florida. It shows an increase from an annual rate of 3.0 million
dollars in 1960 to 4.6 million by 1965 and to 7.6 million in 1975. However, if the
University of Florida should increase its growth rate to the 1957-59 growth rate of
Purdue University, the 1975 volume of sponsored research could be expected to
reach 10.6 million dollars or an increase of 40 per cent above the first projection.

12 UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA
Based upon the growth rate at the Uni er ii,' of Illinois the 1975 volume of spon-
sored research at the Universirv, of Florida would reach 16.9 I loLiln dollars annual-
ly or 220 per cent above the first projection. Perhaps it is too much to expect the
r.a.td11t-i. _ks to research growth that have existed in Florida to be removed in time to
achieve the rapid rate of research growth of the University of illinois, but the Pur-
due University growth rate could certainly be attained. The result would be very
significant to the economic, industrial and cultural growth of Florida.
The coorl.ina ion of sponsored research at the I ni T.ci l, of Florida has in-
volved about fifteen per cent of the time of the Dean of the Graduate School assist-
ed by one clerical employee. The annual expenditure is below $10,'.1.0 for this
effort. Ctb' iiusiy, a $7,000,000 sponsored research program would be expected
to require a signiiicant increase over the present ei.ien.iinc.t tor coordination
which would be covered by increased overhead on contracts and grants. However,
the coordination needed cannot be achieved unless a different administrative or-
ganization is arranged. The typical if not universal instrument for university re-
search coordination is the Research Foundation or Research Institute.
The essential functions of a Research Foundation may be summarized as fol-
1. Provide aid to faculty members to contact appropriate a.lencv sponsors of
research. Make monthly contacts in Wd,.hinr;tn by the Jirecior or his associates
to maintain the latest information ref.irdigii, a.'..iilarle support for research. Similar
contacts would be made with foundations and many corporations that are direct
sponsors of research.
2. Provide the faculty with aid in pri,-.., ig research reports includii- ei steno-
graphic, drafting, report edliig., pi-roi l.t.La[l ic and duplication services. Maintain
legal, accounting, translation and patent application services.
3. Develop and operate a revolving iunc for initiating research that gives
promise of attracting sponsorship. Finance preliminary library searches. Such
"seed corn" has proved to be extremely userul and productive of sponsorship.
4. Use its revolving fund to provide stability of research activity by cdar,ving
research costs for short periods that sometimes occur between completion of one
contract or grant and approval of another. Such sa.ii'ty will encourage more re-
search work paid for by outside sponsors at no cost to the state of Florida.
5. Maintain certain special technical services such as glassblowing and elec-
tronic instrument repairs and make available large expensive instruments which
cannot be provided by every department rit-eJin,, such research services. A Re-
search Foundation could !Ic.AiLI, reduce the cost to the University of electronic
computer service, for example.
6. Provide on-campus authority to approve research contracts and grants.
Presently the length of time is excessive for effective operation.
CONTRACT RESEARCH 13
In order to achieve the objectives listed above it will be necessary to incor-
porate a private research foundation that does not function as a part of the state
government. Such a foundation would be able to develop the necessary operating
funds from indirect cost charges. Its staff would be limited to coordinating and
service personnel. Funds collected in excess ef its needs for the objectives listed
should be av.iia.ible for support of scholarship and research in all departments of
the University. It is confidently believed that the development of such a research
foundation would increase the rate of growth of sponsored research.
Engineering and Industrial Experiment Station
The Engineering and Industrial Experiment Station is the research arm of
the College of Enineering and most of its personnel hold dual appointments in the
College and in the Station.
The Station was created in 1941 by act of the Florida Legislature. Its mission
is to organize and promote the prosecution of research projects of engineering and
related sciences, with special emlphasi on matters which may be useful to the
advancement of Florida industry. There has been an increasing level of activity in
all phases of engineering research during the past two years.
Station research activities have been carried on in Aerospace Engineering,
Chemical Fnginecrin., Civil Engineering. Electrical FngineerinK and Mechanical
En.in-eering. Partly because of the stimulus of demands of the aerospace age, the
maximum recent expansion has occurred in Nuclear Engineering, Engineering Me-
chanics and Metallurgical Engineering. The interest in all areas of scientific in-
ve.,t iv.ition which are currently being manifested both by industry and by other
elements in the State foretell a continued growth and development of the Station.
In addition to its own achievements, the Station has provided a valuable stim-
ulus to the advancement of the teaching program in the College of Engineering.
The existence of a fluurishin research program has been essential in attracting
faculty with ,listin0uished records of professional achievement. The achievements
of this faculty have resulted in additional contracts and grants being placed with
the University of Florida.
During the biennium members of the EIES staff have made important contribu-
tions to the solution of problems concerning new uses of minerals and metals found
in Florida, alleviation of air pollution and contamination of Florida waters, control
of coastal erosion, tracking of tropical storms, new techniques of highway construc-
tion, solar air conditioning, nuclear rocket propulsion, solid propellant rocket
grains and industrial control methods.
Of the 149 research projects active on July 1, 1962, 89 are keyed directly to
some aspect of space exploration.
Florida Agricultural Experiment Stations
As one of the major divisions of the University of Florida, the Florida Agri-
cultural Experiment Stations have the primary responsibility for a comprehensive
statewide prrcr.ini of basic and applied agricultural research.
The Experiment Stations' system is ort.iniz.ed into 19 departments and sections
at the Main Station on the University of Florida campus. The establishment of a
Department of Statistics was the only major organizational change during the bien-
nium. Twenty branch stations and field laboratories are located throughout Florida
ORGANIZED RESEARCH 15
and these numerous locations make possible a research pr.",.r ii influenced by dif-
ferences in soil, climate and crops.
Florida agriculture is quite diversified, including such products as citrus,
vegetables, field crops, pastures, livestock, fibers, ornamentals, tropical fruits,
forests and others. In addition to production research on crops and livestock, much
of the effort is directed to I.-\.l..,iiiir, research in processing, handling, irk i rf'n.
utilization, engineering and economics. Basic research continues to receive in-
creased attention, comprising at least one third of the total research program. This
total program can best be characterized as a combined basic-applied effort which
results in maximum benefits for Florida whose agricultural income is approximating
A project system is used to plan and conduct the total research program. These
projects are regularly evaluated to keep the total program effective and efficient.
In order to keep abreast of current ri,.iultur il problems of the state's increasing
agricultural enterprises and activities, 120 new projects were initiated during the
biennium. During this : ri... 121 projects were terminated and the results published.
Currently there are 422 projects underway, with investigations touching all '.r-
ments of Florida's vast agricultural industry. Of these, 12 are cooperative with
other states on a regional basis. During the biennium a new system of coordination
of research projects on a national basis was initiated in cooperation with the Co-
operative State Experiment Station Service which was recently r,,,r. i ,i, as a
separate service in the United States Department of Agriculture. This new system
provides current information on all projects underway in State Experiment Stations
throughout the country and thus provides a means of effecting better coordination
and cooperation. It helps to avoid duplication and makes possible better ... ..
planning. It is anticipated than an even better total research program should result.
Experiments completed or in progress in the Stations during the biennium in-
cluded improvement of methods for ,h ir !ii,_. potatoes ant citrus at packing houses;
continuing studies of vegetable harvester aids; introduction of a new jumbo runner
peanut variety; improved weed control techniques with young corn; a variety of
significant findings in the improvement of beef cattle; new work on oxygen metabo-
lism of plants; new methods of surveying for aphids in tobacco crops; and hundreds
of equally diverse studies important to .iri. .ilur.,! and related business.
EXTENSION AND SERVICE
The service and extension program of the University of Florida is an integral
part of the University's function as a Land-Grant university. In all accuracy it can
said that the University offers service through all its rorir. l'ra ,. Certain functions
of the University, however, are devoted exclusively to this function and to the
extension of knowledge away from the campus.
Specific service programs are too numerous to mention, but during the biennium
included the work of the General Extension Division transferredd on July 1, 1962 to
the newly established Institute for Continuing University Studies), the service
function of the University of Florida Libraries, Agricultural Extension Service,
Public Administration Clearing House, Bureau of Business and Economic Research,
and the T ..i.'hin., Hospital and Clinics.
Agricultural Extension Service
During the biennium the rapidly growing population of Florida made demands
on the educational services of the Florida Agricultural Extension Service which
far exceeded its resources.
Agricultural producers requested up-to-the-minute information based on the
latest research available in all aspects of their production and marketing programs.
This included the latest information in such highly technical fields as commercial
flower production, nursery production, citrus and vegetable production. Problems
in'.'..'vlin. the imarketing of agricultural products in Florida became acute in several
instances luring the biennium. Educational assistance and information was made
available in each instance. Considerable progress was made in some areas.
To continue the upgrading of the staff, job descriptions and standards of per-
formance were prepared during the biennium for each academic staff member. Pro-
gram planning was carried on in considerable detail in each of the 66 counties in
Florida where Extension agents are employed. Evur, effort was made to keep the
educational programs carried on through the Extension Service up to date and to
conduct these programs as efficiently as possible.
To illustrate the expanding work load of the Agricultural Extension Service
.uriiin this t.',-st .ir period, the following statistical comparisons are offered:

General Extension Division
Historically, the General Extension Division, located in Gainesville and under
the operational control of the 'ni.'rcr-it; of Florida, has been responsible for or-
, ini.-ing and -upir'. -.ing extension classes, workshops and correspondence courses
EXTENSION AND SERVICE 17
for Florida citizens who wish to continue their college education. It has also
conducted short courses, conferences, and institutes for professional, educational,
,*,crupation ii, and cultural groups.
During the biennium more than 5,000 Floridians received college credits for
courses taken by correspondence through the Division's correspondence study pro-
gram. More than 150 different courses were offered through this program.
Reaching a broad section of the citizenry of Florida were the more than 250
bvrkshops and institutes held during the biennium. These were held on the cam-
puses of all the state institutions of higher r, .,rniri and in a variety of other com-
munities around the state in r,-,r n -,r. to the indicated needs of trade, professional,
and business groups.
On March 1, 1962, the General Extension Division became the Division of
General Extension of the newly established Florida Institute for Continuing Uni-
versity Studies. The budget of the Division continued to be administered through
the University of Florida until the close of the fiscal year.
Just two days before he would have retired after 42 years as Dean of the Gen-
eral Extension Division, Dean Bert Clair Riley, passed away on July 28, 1962.
As Dean of the Division since its inception, Dean Riley lei.-r. 1 -..t in Florida an
adult education program that gained national attention and respect.
Other Service Activities
The inter-libr.ar loan service of the University Libraries grew by over 100 per
cent during the biennium. The almost one million scholarly volumes in the libraries
served other universities and colleges, and business and industry lhr'-ach the ex-
panding loan service. Entire articles, reproduced on microfilm, or specific page
references reproduced photographically, represented the bulk of the inter-library
loan activity. This "'.'.r,.r.rI [hi.': service increasingly replaced the time-c n-.i.mir
and expensive packing and shi- rin,. of entire volumes.
Pressures resulting from growth of higher education and industrial research
caused a 300 per cent increase in the number of microfilm and photocopies sent in
1961 as compared to 1'..
Advice and assistance in solving problems of government 'ret.in.'.it n. zoning,
annexation, and a variety of ..'ernnl..nt 11 problems were provided lrin.: the bien-
nium through the University's Public Administration Clearing House. University
faculty conducted a number of studies relating to governmental organization in
various areas of Florida upon request of public officials and study groups.
Among the newest of the service aspects of the University are the health
services provided through the University Teaching Hospital and Clinics. Most of
the health and medical services available at the Teaching Hospital upon referral
by a family physician are those not normally available through community hospitals
and other agencies. New services during the biennium included expansion of the
schedule of heart surgery, establishment of a heart catherization facility, and the
opening of the eye clinic and eye bank. In r.irl,. 1962 the Teaching Hospital was
approved by the Joint Commission of Accreditation of Hospitals for three years, the
maximum certification awarded.

Services of the Florida Institute
In terms of numbers of people served, off-campus programs of the
state universities have managed to show a respectable increase in
registrations each biennium since 1li;., but this increase has not kept
pace with the enormous growth in Florida's population for the same
Recent space-age developments have shocked the alert members of
our adult population to a realization that college graduation, even at
the doctoral level, does not end the necessity for continuous study.
These adults have discovered that many of the old formulas and methods
are not as effective as they once were. In their search for help, they
are turning, in ever-increasing numbers, to their universities as a
resource for the instruction they need. They hope that courses can be
brought to them in or near their communities so that they may continue
advancement in their occupations while furtherinr their education.
The State universities have a large number of faculty members who
are very effective in teaching these adults at all levels of college
training. Faculty members have demonstrated their willingness to
serve by traveling long distances to all sections of Florida to help adults
keep abreast of the times.
The Role and Scope Report on General Extension gives the main
problem in off-campus instruction and service as one of how to reduce
the lag between off-campus services demanded by the public and those
which now can be provided by the universities. The report's suggested
solution is more faculty with more time for off-campus work as a
The need for reaching greater numbers of people in all areas of
learning can no longer be postponed. Florida cannot wait for the uni-
versities to provide the number of graduates required to keep pace with
modern advancements. The need to upgrade the mature, experienced,
and intelligent adult is imperative.
During the biennium faculty members in the four universities
within the State University System provided 469 credit courses of in-
struction to 13,677 registrants. A total of 47 counties were represented
in this phase of the extension function. An additional 7,005 persons were
enrolled in correspondence study.

REPORT OF EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR 25
THE POLICY AND PROCEDURE MANUAL
The Board of Control has seen the need for more adequate policies
and procedures to achieve coordination within the System. As an out-
growth the Board staff has d.v(lthpcd a working plan for revision of
the policy and procedure manual for the Board of Control and the
institutions under its supervision.
The revision will set guidelines of responsibility for the Board and
the institutions with a more realistic system of delegation to the
Executive Director and to the Presidents of the institutions. It is the
goal of the Board to establish policies and procedures which will be
flexible enough to allow maximum efficiency for the institutions and
firm enough to allow the Board to fulfill its public trust as guardians
of the Florida University System.
ARCHITECT TO THE BOARD OF CONTROL
During the 1960-1962 Biennium a significant change was effected
in the organizational structure of the Office of the Architect to the
Board of Control. Effective July 1, 1961, the plan preparation section
of the Architect's Office was transferred from the Gainesville Zone Of-
fice to the Tallahassee Central Office under the direct control of the
Architect to the Board of Control.
Also on July 1, 1961, Mr. Guy C. Fulton, Zone Architect for the
Gainesville Zone, retired after 35 years and 4 months of distinguished
service to the Board of Control. For 13 years prior to the creation of
the Central Office in Tallahassee in 1958, Mr. Fulton served as Archi-
tect to the Board of Control, and thereafter as Zone Architect of the
Gainesville Zone until his retirement. Mr. D. Neil Webb was appointed
as Gainesville Zone Architect to succeed Mr. Fulton. Also during this
Biennium, the Tampa Zone Office came under new leadli slhip. Effective
September 1, 1960, Mr. Fred E. Clayton became Zone Eneincer, succeed-
ing Mr. W. F. Breidenbach who had resigned as Tampa Zone Architect.
Initial planning for Florida Atlantic University was carried through
the preliminary approval of building plans. Working drawings were
authorized for the first group of buildings and utilities so that the target
date for occupancy may be realized in September 1964.
The Architect to the Board of Control has, during the 1960-1962
Biennium, designed and/or supervised construction of the following
buildings at the various institutions under the Board of Control:

THE FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY
OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT
Members of the Board of Control
State of Florida
I consider my coming to the Florida State University in the early months of
this biennium an esteemed privilege, presenting at once a challenging opportunity
and a heavy responsibility. The decade of the 1960's will be a critical period for
all institutions of higher learning. This is especially true in a dynamic, rapidly
growing state such as Florida and in one of its two major graduate institutions of
Our university has been fortunate during the past twenty years to have
had the leadership of men such as Doak S. Campbell, Robert M. Strozier, and
Milton W. Carothers. Building upon the strong liberal arts traditions of the
Florida State College for Women, in a short period there has developed a uni-
versity of considerable intellectual consequence.
During the biennium we have had a fine, dedicated faculty of more than 835
individuals and an efficient, conscientious administrative and non-academic
staff of approximately 1200 individuals working harmoniously together toward
the objectives of the institution, making a grand total of 2,035 persons.
The rapid improvement of the academic distinction of the University has
continued during the biennium. Even so we must concentrate upon improving the
quality of what we do before giving much attention to further growth and in-
With a student welfare program which has already gained national recogni-
tion due to its sound philosophy, FSU is known as a place where the needs of
students come first. This area of a university, which confronts problems difficult
of resolution, is crucial in efforts to achieve our over-all mission.
The central administration and the Division of University Relations have
worked in close harmony with the local community and various groups through-
out the State. Much effort has gone into strengthening our ties with the alumni
in a manner becoming to a distinguished university. There is need for much
more attention to developing sources of private financial support.
The business area of the University seeks to support and facilitate functioning
of all parts of the organization. Here we have operated with effectiveness and
efficiency. However, there appears to be some need for reorganization so as to
adjust to the increasing size and complexity of the university. During the next
year steps will be taken in this direction.
Much time and energy have gone into the development of a long-range plan for
campus development. Already facing a serious shortage of land area, we must
plan carefully if we are to accommodate a fifty per cent increase in students
during the next eight years and provide adequately for the instructional space,
housing, other student facilities, and the general supporting services re-
quired for the operation of the University. Problems of traffic circulation, both
pedestrian and vehicular, must be handled within the master plan. And at the same
time the aesthetic beauty of the campus must be preserved and even enhanced.
Detailed plans for campus development to 1970 and beyond should be completed
within the next few months.
Appreciation is expressed to Governor Farris Bryant and other members of
the Board of Education and to the Board of Control for their dedication to the
cause of higher education and for the support which has been given to the Florida
State University. Appreciation is due also to members of the faculties, staff
and student body who have worked cooperatively together as colleagues in
learning and service.
Submitted herewith are the reports of the major officers of the University.
Through these materials one can understand the major organizational framework
of the University, some of the accomplishments during the past two years, and
something of our needs in the future.

FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY 3
THE DEAN OF THE FACULTIES
To the President of The Florida State University
Reports of the Academic Deans and the Director of Libraries on the past
biennium are submitted herewith. Therefore this report is confined to some
brief general observations on the academic activities of the University.
The biennium has been one of major strains and stresses. It has created a
climate which produces some beneficial results but which cannot be permitted
to continue indefinitely without risk of serious damage to the University. Among
these stresses and strains were the adjustment to new institutional leadership,
the grossly inadequate salary situation prevailing at the beginning of the first
year of the biennium, the continuously mounting enrollment without significant
increase in faculty and supporting personnel, the acute shortage of physical
facilities resulting from the building program setback during the 1957-1958
"freeze," the rather hurried planning required for the complex move to a "year-
round operation," the conflicting viewpoints over faculty salaries in the Spring
of 1962, and the time and energy demands of the Role and Scope Study.
In comparing our situation now with that of two years ago, I believe that the
conclusions I am about to give are valid. The quality of our students has in-
creased significantly, but these students are not receiving the best possible
instructional services because of the heavy use of graduate assistants for in-
struction, acutely limited library and laboratory facilities, and wavering faculty
morale. The morale of the faculty has been increased to the extent that it has
faith in the philosophy and action of the new leadership, and to the extent that
compensation is now only somewhat inadequate rather than grossly so. How-
ever, the morale has decreased to the same extent that the State of Florida
has failed to compensate the faculty in the full amount of the legislative appro-
priation, and to the extent that the faculty is concerned about the educational
implications of the trimester plan. The problem of physical facilities is more
acute than ever, but will be somewhat alleviated by the new bond issue program.
It must be recognized, however, that a massive effort in this area is required.
The need probably cannot be met by the State on a current income basis. The
Role and Scope Study has served to clarify and solidify our philosophy, objec-
tives, hopes, and ambitions. Implementation of the Study is the major task now
Florida State University is well on the way toward becoming a respected,
senior citizen in the American academic community. Florida has the oppor-
tunity to provide its people with a center of higher learning comparable to
any in the nation. It is to be hoped that the necessary resources will be made
available, that the climate will be one conducive to effective teaching and
scholarship, and that we shall meet the opportunity with vigor and wisdom.
Werner A. Baum, Dean of the Faculties
4 PRESIDENT'S REPORT
THE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES
To the President of The Florida State University
The College of Arts and Sciences has continued its role in the Florida State
University of providing instruction in the liberal arts for all university students,
instruction in the various disciplines of the humanities, the social sciences, and
the natural sciences for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. Its
faculty and students have engaged in scholarly development, have served the
community, the state, and the nation through research and creative expression.
In the College of Arts and Sciences the biennium was one of significant
growth in both instruction and research. During the period the College had
an increase of 21.5 per cent in full-time-equivalent students served. With only
a 4.3 per cent increase in faculty, the College provides over 65 per cent of the
instruction in the entire University during the fall semester in 1961. The spiralling
enrollment over the past years is indicated in the 1053 bachelor's degrees con-
ferred by the College as compared with 844 in the preceding biennium. Similarly
through the departments within the College 205 master's degrees and 75 doctor's
degrees were conferred during the 1960-1962 biennium, increases of 18.5 per
cent and 38.9 per cent respectively.
Financial support from grants and contracts for research by members of the
faculty increased approximately 150 per cent over the previous biennium. There
has been a corresponding increase in research and creative activity not sup-
ported by outside agencies as reflected in part in the 1961 edition of Publica-
tions of the Faculty. Thus there have been significant increases in productivity
in teaching and in productivity in research with no appreciable increase in
number of faculty.
During the biennium an increased number of graduate scholarships and
fellowships have been awarded to students graduating from the College. Eleven
graduates have received Woodrow Wilson Fellowships. These and other students
have pursued advanced studies in outstanding institutions throughout this
country and abroad.
During each year of the past biennium there have been more than six
thousand course registrations in the College Program for the Armed Forces ad-
ministered through the College of Arts and Sciences. The centers of instruction
for the registrants have been at the following military installations: Eglin Air
Force Base, Florida; Homestead Air Force Base, Florida; Tyndall Air Force
Base, Florida; Moody Air Force Base, Valdosta, Georgia; Turner Air Force
Base and the Marine Supply Depot, Albany, Georgia; Charleston Air Force
Base, South Carolina; Ramey Air Force Base and the U. S. Antilles Command,
Puerto Rico; and the Army and Air Force installations in the Canal Zone.
During the biennium 83 students who had previously taken work in the Florida
State University College Program for the Armed Services spent their senior
residency on the campus on military assignment and received the bachelor's
degree. This brings the total number of students who have earned degrees at
the Florida State University through this program to 274. A considerable
number of these have returned for graduate work and have been awarded ad-
FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY 5
New and Expanded Programs
During the year 1960-61 the Board of Control appiro\ed the master's degree
program in Engineering Science and doctoral program in Geology and Sta-
tistics. Such approval recognizes a strengthening of faculty and research
facilities as well as a greater student demand in these areas.
On the undergraduate level the Department of Philosophy and Religion re-
organized its curriculum and instituted a comprehensive senior examination for
In September, 1960, the first rigorously selected, superior high school
graduates, numbering 43, were enrolled as honors students. During the second
year of the biennium, 62 freshman and 62 sophomores participated in the
Honors Program at the basic division level. During l1i,51,-4,, there were only two
students undertaking honors work at the advanced undergraduate level, whereas
during the biennium just ended more than 70 superior students in 16 depart-
ments were working toward the bachelor's degree with honors, 45 of whom have
been graduated with honors in their specialized fields.
The Division of Basic Studies completed in the biennium its first cycle of a
full student generation. During the period policies and procedures have been
established with intent to insure quality instruction, competent counseling, and
accurate recording for the students in the Division. The careful screening of
each student transferring from the Division to a degree program has measur-
ably enhanced the rigorous maintenance of academic standards in the entire
During the summer of 1960 the Department of Speech inaugurated the Asolo
Theatre Comedy Festival, a series of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century
comedies staged, acted, directed, and produced by the Department in the Asolo
Theatre of the Ringling Museum in Sarasota. Not only does the Festival pro-
vide unusual instructional facilities for students in drama, music, and art, but
also it enhances the cultural life of the State.
In attracting the distinguished Broadway producer, Mr. Eddie Dowling, to
cooperate with the Department of Speech in the production on the campus of
potential Broadway plays as part of the regular University Theatre Series, the
Department laid the groundwork for the establishment of the Eddie Dowling
University Theatre Foundation, which will perhaps mean as much culturally
to the State as the assignment of the Moonport Project to the Cape means in-
dustrially and scientifically.
With the completion of both the Mathematics-Meteorology Building and the
addition to the Nuclear Building, and with the Moleculi r-Biophy.-ics Building
nearing completion, a beginning has been made in alleviating the critical shortage
of space for teaching and research in the rapidly expanding area of the natural
sciences. With the acquisition of an IBM 709 Computer, the Computing Center
under the direction of Dr. E. P. Miles, Professor of Mathematics, was reorganized
and housed in the new Mathematics-Meteorologly Building. Now that the De-
partments of Mathematics and Statistics and the Computing Center are ade-
quately quartered in the Science Center, they will be able to contribute even
more effectively to modern mathematically and statistically oriented teaching
6 PRESIDENT'S REPORT
During the biennium several significant changes have occurred in the faculty
of the College. Dr. Ivan Nye, editor of the journal, Marriage and Family Living,
joined the Sociology faculty to direct the Interdivisional Doctoral Program in
Marriage and Family Living. Dr. Melvin Greenhut, formerly of the faculty of
the Department of Economics, will rejoin the faculty of that department as Pro-
fessor in the fall of 1962.
Dr. DeLos Detar and Dr. Leo Mandelkern, the first senior scientists employed
on the Molecular-Biophysics project, were appointed Professors of Chemistry.
Because of his heavy responsibilities in directing the Institute of Molecular-
Biophysics, Dr. Michael Kasha has been relieved of administrative duties in the
Department of Chemistry and Dr. Earl Frieden of that faculty has been named
his successor as chairman of the department. The Department of Mathematics
has been remarkably strengthened by Dr. Morton Curtis, an eminent teacher-
investigator, who arrived in September, 1960, and by Dr. Ray Wilder of the Uni-
versity of Michigan who has been Distinguished Research Professor during
1961-62. Since Dr. Harvey Hall's resignation as head of the Department of
Physics early in the biennium, Dr. Robert Kromhout, Associate Professor of
Physics, has served as head of the department. Dr. Earle Plyler, after many
years of distinguished service at the University of North Carolina and in the
Bureau of Standards in Washington, D. C., has accepted an appointment as head
of the Physics Department and will join the faculty in the fall of 1962.
Dr. Gulnar Bosch, a distinguished scholar in Islamic art, came to Florida
State University as head of the Department of Art in the fall of 1960 from
her position as head of the Department of Fine Arts in Louisiana State Uni-
versity. Dr. Francis Walton, formerly head of the Department of Classics,
resigned his position in the Florida State University and was replaced by Dr.
Lynette Thompson, Associate Professor of Classics.
With the appointment of Dr. Laurence Chalmers as Assistant Dean of
Faculties, Dr. Paul Piccard, Associate Professor of Government, has replaced
him as Director of the Honors Program both in the Division of Basic Studies
and in the College of Arts and Sciences Division of Advanced Studies. Dr. Jack
W. Rollow has resigned his position as Director of the Division of Basic Studies
and Associate Dean of the College to accept the vice presidency of Queens Col-
lege in Charlotte, North Carolina. Dr. Russell Kiers has given up his respon-
sibilities as associate chairman of the Chemistry Department to accept an as-
sociate deanship in the Graduate School. Mrs. Katherine Hoffman of the chem-
istry faculty will assume the associate chairmanship in the Department of
Dr. Leland Shanor has been granted a leave of absence from his position as
Professor of Biology to serve as Dean of Advanced Studies in the Florida In-
stitute for Continuing University Studies. Mrs. Olive Cross was on leave during
1960-61 for the second year as Visiting Professor of English at the University
of Damascus in Syria. Because of her outstanding contribution there as an
ambassador of American scholarship, she has been asked by the State Depart-
ment in Washington to serve in a similar capacity in the University of Saigon
in South Vietnam during the coming year. Dr. George Lensen was on leave dur-
ing the spring semester of 1960-61 to carry out research in the Soviet Union and
FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY 7
in England as a Columbia University Fellow in History. Dr. Victor Mamatey of
the History faculty was also on leave during that semester as Visiting Profes-
sor of History at Columbia University. Dr. Lloyd Beidler was on leave from
the Department of Biological Sciences during the 1961-62 academic year to
plan the scientific exhibits at the Seattle World's Fair. Dr. Odell Walby began
an eighteen months leave in February, 1962, and is assisting in the establishment
of a public administration department at the University of Taipeh in Formosa.
Dr. William Dillingham, Professor of Economics, was invited to lecture in two
universities in Spain for the year 1961-62 and returned to join the Florida State
University faculty in June. Dr. Marshall Colberg was granted a leave of absence
beginning February, 1962, to conduct a research program sponsored by the Inter-
University Committee for Economic Research on the South. Dr. Joel Green-
spoon, Professor of Psychology, was on leave during the second year of the
biennium, during which time he participated in a psychological and clinical
program at the University of Virginia. Dr. Meyer Nimkoff was on leave during
the fall semester, 1961, to serve as Visiting Professor of Sociology at his alma
mater, Boston University. Dr. Juanita Gibson was granted a leave of absence
for two years beginning in September, 1960, to serve as administrative assistant
to the Secretary of State of Florida.
Other changes involved 46 resignations from the faculties of the Departments
of Anthropology, Art, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Classics, Economics, Engi-
neering Science, English, Geography, Government, History, Mathematics, Modern
Languages, Philosophy, Physics, Sociology, Speech, and Statistics.
Particularly noteworthy honors have come to two faculty members during
the biennium. Dr. Leland Shanor, Head of the Department of Biological Sciences,
was awarded an honorary degree of Doctor of Science by Illinois Wesleyan Uni-
versity and Mr. Karl Zerbe, Professor of Art, was selected by the American
Federation of Artists through support of the Ford Foundation as one of four
painters in the United States to have a retrospective exhibition circulated
throughout the country to leading museums of art.
Gifts and Grants
During the biennium 97 members of the faculty in 13 departments received
financial support for research from grants and contracts totalling approximately
$5,000,000. Particularly noteworthy was the grant from NASA in support of
research in the Space Biosciences by Drs. Sidney Fox, Charles Metz, and Seymour
Hess, Professors of Chemistry, Zoology, and Meteorology, respectively.
In addition, the University was awarded for 1960-61 twenty-six National De-
fense Education Act Fellowships for the Departments of Mathematics and
History and the Interdepartmental Program in Humanities, and for 1961-;62
thirty-five fellowships for these departments and for the departments of
Geology, Government, and the Interdivisional Program in Marriage and Family
Living in which the Department of Sociology participate-.
Plans and Needs
Foremost among plans for the future growth and development is further con-
struction in the Science Center. The startling increase in numbers of students
8 PRESIDENT'S REPORT
and in quantity of research in the natural sciences makes it imperative that
construction be undertaken at once for physics, chemistry, the biological sciences
and engineering science.
Of equal need is a Fine Arts Building complete with an art gallery, museum,
and theatre. Unless Florida State University is to become a cultural wasteland,
recognition at least in the form of adequate space must be given to those con-
cerned with the creative arts. Without such a building the increasingly valuable
art and museum collections in the Departments of Art and of Anthropology and
Archaeology will be endangered, and plans for expansion of the University
Theatre Series through support of the Dowling Foundation will be jeopardized.
With the increased teaching and research activities in the social science de-
partments, the need for a building to house these activities is unquestionable.
In a desperate effort to serve the ever-increasing numbers of students with
little or no increase in instructional personnel, experimental innovations have
been undertaken in 1961-62. For example, the required course in history
has been taught in twelve sections of two hundred students per section instead
of in the more desirable sections of forty students each. Likewise, an experi-
mental section of more than a hundred students in the General Education social
science course has been conducted. To help insure quality, the Honors Program
will be expanded to counterbalance the alarming but necessary trend toward
mass instruction. Any further increase in students must be accompanied by an
increase in the number of large classrooms and by a significant increase in the
number of faculty members.
The increased faculty salary scale for 1961-62 came at a critical time, and
further improvement in this regard is imperative if the College is to maintain its
faculty at the current level of competency. The increased activity of the
faculty necessitated by the institution of the trimester system makes the
urgency of salary increases all the more significant.
Appropriated funds for operating expenses and for capital outlay un-
fortunately have not kept pace with the mounting research and teaching func-
tions of the College. To maintain present obligations it is imperative that
significantly more money be available in these essential categories. Because of lack
of funds over the past several years equipment has deteriorated with no replace-
ment possible and amounts of necessary expendable items have been curtailed,
reducing teaching effectiveness. It is absolutely essential that an "overtake"
appropriation be made quickly to restore conditions to a normally expected level.
In spite of the difficulty imposed by mounting responsibility and indaequate
funds, the College continued to provide for the youth of Florida an education of
high quality, and it continued to contribute notably to the political, economic,
scientific, and cultural well being of the State and region. It is hoped with
more adequate financial support the College will be enabled to make even
greater contributions to the State which it is dedicated to serve.

THE SCHOOL OF EDUCATION
To the President of The Florida State Unii'rsity!
Major activities of the School of Education for the 1960-62 biennium follow:
1. The doctoral programs in eleven departments have been strengthened. Re-
cent graduates in these programs have assumed leadership positions in teaching
as heads of departments in colleges and universities, as junior college presi-
dents, and as members of the State Department of Education. There is a
rapidly expanding enrollment in these programs.
2. Close coordination has developed with the respective departments in the
College of Arts and Sciences. Graduates from both schools meet the same pro-
fessional requirements in preparing for teaching. Examples of this are: The
Head of the Department of English Education has taught courses in the English
Department, and several of the English professors have conducted summer
courses in English Education. The advisory body formed in 1960 provides
counsel for the Science Education Department in academic matters. The Council
is made up of members of the Science Education Department and the Heads
of the Departments of Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Geology, and Meteorology,
with an additional professor for each of the larger three.
3. Faculty from the Department of Social Studies, Mathematics, and English
have assumed active leadership in the development of Councils in their respective
areas, in the preparation of news publications, in providing consultant service,
in serving as chairmen for the preparation of materials developed cooperatively.
4. The programs for preparation to teach in the academic subject fields have
been expanded to require additional work in subject area content as well as in
specialized professional education preparation. In Science Education, the so-
called broad fields program has been discarded and separate programs for
physics, chemistry, and biology developed. Students are advised and encouraged
to specialize in one area (20 hours) and to take a minimum of 16 hours in one
additional area. At the graduate level the emphasis is on flexibility according
to the individual student's background. The student is encouraged to distribute
work among several areas.
5. Programs of observation and participation in the University School have
been developed for all students preparing to teach in specialized subject areas
or in primary and upper elementary grades.
6. Grants from the Office of Education under the New Project English have
been received and another is pending.
7. Grants from the National Science Foundation have made possible pioneer-
ing in such programs as summer mathematics programs for talented high school
students and an in-service institute in mathematics for elementary school per-
sonnel. In addition, the mathematics department has underway developmental
research in the teaching of contemporary mathematics, particularly in the area
of self-teaching devices and has developed ways of utilizing the University School
for research, teacher education, and demonstration purposes. This department
has recently produced a modern elementary algebra textbook.
10 PRESIDENT'S REPORT
8. One of four regional workshops sponsored by National Council for Social
Studies and American Newspaper Publishers Association to train teachers on
more effective use of daily newspapers in the classroom has been introduced.
9. During its initial three years of operation, the Department of Higher Ed-
ucation has (a) developed its basic curriculum, (b) established operational
policies and practices, and (c) participated with academic departments of the
University in the establishment of an inter-departmental Program for the
Preparation of Junior College Instructors. More than one-half of the 33 doctoral
students and 20 masters students enrolling in the Department of Higher Edu-
cation are from schools other than Education. The Department members have
served as consultants to professional organizations and institutions of higher
learning in Florida, the Southeast, and the Region. The department received,
jointly with the University of Florida, a grant of $330,490 from the Kellogg
Foundation for a southeastern Junior College Leadership Program.
10. The Department of Industrial Arts and Vocational Education has in-
creased offerings in the areas of machines, metals, graphic arts, and electricity
and radio. Offerings in Vocational Education have expanded to include enough
to provide minimum certification for teachers of technical education. A graduate
assistantship in Vocational Education has made it possible to initiate a re-
search project concerned with the amount of work experience which is pro-
vided in general education.
11. The Department of Physical Education and Recreation is giving signifi-
cant leadership throughout the nation in the promotion of a co-educational pro-
gram of physical education for men and women. It is also assuming leadership
in the development of exemption examinations to determine those who meet physi-
cal education requirements. This department holds its students to the same high
standards that are held by all other departments in the total University. Recently
a research laboratory was established by this department. In recognition of the
quality of work, a post-doctoral fellow from Belgium spent a semester working
in this program.
12. The Guidance Department has established a Guidance Laboratory which
offers supervised experience in counseling. They have been awarded three Na-
tional Defense Education Act Guidance Institutes have been financed by the
U.S. Office of Education. Research in junior high school guidance and elementary
school guidance has culminated in the publication of two professional books in
these respective areas.
13. Significant developments in Exceptional Children Education include the
transfer to the School of Education of the administrative responsibility for the
preparation of teachers of exceptional children; the employment of a full-time
faculty member to develop appropriate curricula for preparation of teachers of
exceptional children and to coordinate the interrelated contributions of the
Psychology and the Speech Departments, and the School of Social Welfare; the
expansion and improvement of laboratory facilities on campus essential in the
preparation of teachers of exceptional children; and the strengthening of liasion
between the School of Education and the county coordinators of Florida's
exceptional child program.
14. The recently created Departments of Early Childhood Education and of
Upper Elementary and Junior High School have developed a coordinated pro-
gram of preinternship preparation involving a cooperative block of courses which
FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY
provides opportunities for varied experiences to insure a gradual induction into
teaching and which includes a week of observation and participation at the Uni-
15. A program for the preparation of directors and teachers of private and
church-related nursery schools and kindergartens has been cooperatively de-
veloped with the General Extension Division and the Departments of Early
Childhood Education assisted by the Departments of Home and Family Life of
the School of Home Economics, School of Social Welfare, and Institute of Human
16. Research projects to assist in program developments in Early Child-
hood Education have been conducted in Orange and Manatee Counties through
the cooperation of the local school officials.
17. Members of the faculty of the Department of Early Childhood Education
are currently engaged in the joint research project on Twins with the Human
Development Institute, Art Education Department, Speech in the College of
Arts and Sciences, and Home and Family Life in the School of Home Economics.
18. In 1961 the Department of Art Education and Constructive Design was
invited to join the research cooperative of the top ten art education departments
in America. In leadership, the members of the faculty have held top offices in
professional organizations such as the presidency of the National Art Education
Association, the vice-presidency of Southeastern Arts Association; the chairman-
ship of the National Art Education Association 1961 Biennial Conference; the
editorship of the Southeastern Arts Bulletin and the Florida Art Education Bul-
letin. The research activities of the faculty have been noteworthy. Research
on students in Florida State University's unique annual Arts and Crafts Camp
has been conducted, and one of the faculty was a member of the research team
established by the Carnegie Foundation to study the gifted child in art. The
head of the department has been appointed to the ten member Commission on
Art in Education sponsored by the National Art Education Association and a
private foundation, to study the status of art education in American schools.
19. The Health Education Department has strengthened its curriculum
through revision of former courses and addition of new courses to meet chang-
ing needs. Excellent working relationships have been developed with and many
contributions have been made to official and voluntary health organizations in
the state-Florida State Board of Health, American Cancer Society, Florida
Division, Inc., Florida Heart Association, Florida Association of Sanitarians.
Leadership has been given to national professional organizations-American
Association for Health, Physical Education and Recreation and Joint Committee
on Health Problems in Education of National Education Association and Amer-
ican Medical Association.
20. The Office of Educational Placement and Internship was recently created
and provision made for a central counseling program in the School of Education
each Department counseling its respective majors have been additional significant
21. Provisions of adequate facilities through the new University School Plant
with recent additions and the new air-conditioned School of Education Build-
ing have assisted in making possible many of these achievements that could not
have been made otherwise.
Faculty and Students
From 1950-1951 to 1961-1962 the School of Education faculty has grown 67
per cent, from 86 to 144 members. The growth has been qualitative as well as
quantitative. For the most part, faculty members appointed during this period
have been specialists in particular areas of education or in supporting areas.
Inasmuch as selection of faculty members has been based on both specialized
competence and youth, the present faculty is potentially capable of significant
future accomplishments providing salutary working conditions are maintained.
The past decade might be partly characterized by the change in the student
body of the School of Education as revealed by degrees awarded. From 1951-
1953, 694 bachelor degrees were awarded and from 1959-1961, 701 bachelor
degrees were awarded. The net change is plus 1 per cent for the period, thus
indicating an undergraduate student body of a rather constant size. With regard
to Master's degrees, 173 were awarded during the first two-year period and
239 during the latter period. The net change is plus 38 per cent, indicating
growth in lower-level graduate work. As for the doctorates, 8 were awarded
from 1951-1953 and 36 from 1959-1961. The net change is plus 350 per cent.
It is apparent that a significant change is the growing emphasis on the graduate
program. Projections for the next ten years suggest an ever-growing proportion
of students engaging in advanced graduate work, coupled with absolute increases
in students at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.
The quality of undergraduates admitted to the School of Education has in-
creased steadily. For the current year, data about average academic aptitude
of students enrolled in each division of the University reveal that Education
ranks higher than most divisions of the University and higher than the all- uni-
versity average. However, comparative status within the University ignores the
fact that minimal entrance standards for freshmen have been increased twice
during the last decade. At the present time only the top 40 per cent of high
school graduates, as determined by a battery of intelligence and achievement
tests, are eligible for admittance to our state universities. Space limitations in
the university produces even greater selectivity.
The quality of graduate students in Education has also increased similarly.
The minimal requirement for admission to the Graduate School is a score of
800 on the Graduate Record Examination (verbal and quantitative combined).
But the vast majority of departments in Education which offer graduate work
have established minimum requirements substantially greater than that set for
admission to the Graduate School.
University Support and Recognition
Support and recognition accorded by the other divisions of the University to
the School of Education have increased steadily during the past decade, a period
in which it was fashionable for scholars and lay public alike to ridicule pro-
fessional education. Such good will has been gained as a side effect of con-
tinuous efforts to improve the curriculum, the increasing quality of students
and faculty, and our gradual involvement in research. Being regarded as
a "respectable" member of the academic community fosters University-wide co-
FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY 13
operation and participation in the training of teachers. It is only through this
interdivisional involvement in teacher training that the advantages of having a
School of Education located in a university can be realized.
The School of Education has engaged actively in research only during the
past few years. The lateness with which research has been established as a
major activity is partly attributable to a lack of research tradition in the
University prior to 1947, and is partly attributable to the gigantic extension
and field programs that the education faculty carried for ten years following
the end of World War II during which the public school system of the State
has been thoroughly reorganized and up-graded.
The mid-fifties marked the engagement of the education faculty in research
and experimentation. During the year 1957-1958 the first external grant and
contract monies were obtained. That year three activities were funded
in the total amount of $5,355. But, during the 1960-1961 fiscal year eleven
activities were funded in the amount of $229,939. In the 1957-1958 fiscal year
the School of Education received $1,300 from the University Research Council to
subsidize specific projects. During the 1961-1962 fiscal year, $13,777 was re-
ceived from this source. For the period 1951-1959, not one graduate assistant-
ship was financed by external grant or contract money; however, during 1960-
1961, $23,415 of such money underwrote graduate assistantships.
An increasing proportion of the faculty's time and funds will be devoted to
research during the next decade. We intend to produce knowledge as diligently
and efficiently in the future as we have purveyed it in the past.
Field work, particularly credit courses, has changed focus from assisting in-
dividuals and group- to meet specific degree and/or certification requirements
to meeting special needs of personnel identified as leaders in the programs or
systems, to assisting with emerging problems of special groups, and to de-
veloping cooperative programs on long-term basis to broaden the background
of individuals, to redirect activities and to acquire new information based upon
recent research finding.-.
The work of the faculty on the preparation of the report for National Council
for Accreditation of Teacher Education and the report of Role and Scope for
the State Board of Control has been a valuable means for initiating a broad pro-
gram of in-service education for the total faculty of the School of Education.
The work of committees and the total faculty in the respective departments and
the work of inter-departmental groups has provided the total faculty with a
broader understanding of all programs.

14 PRESIDENT'S REPORT
THE SCHOOL OF HOME ECONOMICS
To the President of The Florida State University
The School of Home Economics provides undergraduate and graduate in-
struction in home economics through professional programs in specialized areas;
programs designed to prepare students for personal, family, and community liv-
ing; courses which contribute to general education, and professional programs
in other divisions of the University. It also carries on research programs in
subject matter and professional areas, with special emphasis upon the needs
of the state and region.
The number of undergraduate students majoring in home economics has
continued to increase and has roughly paralleled the increase in undergraduate
women in the university. There has also been an increase in graduate majors;
19 Master's and 21 Ph.D. students were in residence in the fall of 1961. During
this biennium 131 students received the Bachelor's degrees; 8, Master's degrees;
and 7, Ph.D. degrees. Thirteen extension classes were taught and 6 workshops
conducted in various parts of the state.
Members of the faculty participated as speakers, discussion leaders, coordina-
tors, and consultants in workshops, institutes, and conferences of 67 professional
and non-professional groups during the biennium. Included were such groups
as The National Congress of Parents and Teachers, The Society for Research
in Child Development, The National Council on Family Relations, The National
and Southern Regional Institutes of Food Technology, The United States
Quartermaster Conference on Radiation Preservation of Food, Symposium on
Flavor Chemistry sponsored by the Research Division of Campbell Soup Com-
pany, The Florida School Food Service Association, County Nutrition Councils,
Florida Home Economics Teachers Conference, State Advisory Board for Home
Economics Education in Florida, Southern Regional Conference on Home
Economics Education, Southern Regional Association of College Teachers of
Food and Nutrition, and the Florida Academy of Sciences.
Faculty members served as consultants to community groups in the state
and to some 20 state agencies. Examples of such services are help in stand-
ardization of prison menus requested by the Florida State Department of Cor-
rections, assistance with technical aspects of educational material for the Florida
Citrus Commission, and testing fabrics and establishing criteria for selection of
textile furnishings for campus buildings for the Director of Purchasing at the
Florida State University.
Fourteen members of the faculty held offices or chairmanships in national
and state processional organizations; two served as associate or technical editors,
three as book reviewers, and three as abstractors for professional journals. One
member acted as permanent panel member on the University's television program
"Focus," and other members served as resource people and specialists on educa-
tional television programs.
The School of Home Economics was host to a number of professional groups
on the campus during the biennium. Among these groups were the Annual Con-
ference of Florida Home Economics Teachers and the Florida Section of the
Institute of Food Technology.
FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY 15
The curricula in the Department of Clothing and Textiles was evaluated and
several revisions made which strengthen the programs in that area of concen-
tration and also benefit the curriculum in Home Economics Education.
The Department of Institution Administration was discontinued and the ed-
ucational functions within this area were transferred to the Department of Food
and Nutrition effective September, 1961. With the incorporation of this ad-
ditional area of "Food Management," the major sequences of study within that
department were carefully re-defined, resulting in the delineation of five cur-
ricula: Community Nutrition, Food and Nutrition Communications, Food and
Nutrition Science, Therapeutic and Administrative Dietetics, and School Lunch
Administration. The basic courses from the Department of Institution Admini-
stration were transferred to Food and Nutrition and six courses were deleted
from the program.
An all-over reorganization of the program in housing and interior design
is projected for 1962-63. A new master's program in home management is
being planned for the 1963-65 biennium. Personnel in this area are in short
supply and few such programs are available. It is hoped that some work in
household equipment can be offered in the near future as it is needed to round
out the programs in the Department of Home and Family Life.
Research has continued in the various areas of home economics under grants
from agencies such as the United States Department of Agriculture, United
States Public Health Service, The National Institutes of Health, The Florida
State University Research Council, and funds allocated from departmental
budgets. Research in the Home and Family Life area has been concerned with
the effects of maternal employment on family life, the financial management
of employed and non-employed wives, and the effect of laboratory observation
on understanding human behavior. Members of this department have participated
in the research project on zygosity carried on by the Human Development In-
stitute and have assisted in designing new research projects in this Institute.
In the area of Food and Nutrition, investigators have continued to study the
preservation of food by freezing, curing, and the use of ionizing radiations.
Special attention is now being focused on control of chemical changes which
occur during storage. Stale and rancid flavors, pigment changes, and the like,
have been identified chemically and control methods investigated. The anti-
oxidant value of certain vegetable extracts in prevention of lipid oxidation in
meat products is of particular interest. The feasibility of undertaking investiga-
tions with a bearing on space nutrition is under consideration. The effect of
kind and amount of dietary components, especially fat and calories, on the
synthesis of certain lipids is under intensive investigation. A major study using
radio active tracers has just been completed and a new project developed. Pre-
liminary investigation has been made of some factors affecting the dietary in-
take of college students. This will be continued and expanded in 1962-63. In-
vestigations of the effect of atmospheric conditions in Florida on various types
of fabrics have been continued. During the biennium some work has been done
on the role of clothing in structuring perceptions of persons. Members of the
clothing and textiles faculty have worked as part of a research team for the
Southeastern Section of the American Association of Textile Chemists and
Colorists. This project was concerned with level dyeing of cotton.
16 PRESIDENT'S REPORT
The number of graduate students with areas of concentration in home
economics is increasing, especially at the doctoral level. In our research and
graduate programs, scientific equipment is becoming increasingly complex and
expensive. Plans must be made for the purchase of additional equipment in
order to keep abreast of current research activities in the field. Recently it was
possible, within the framework of a grant from the United States Department
of Agriculture, to purchase a Beckman spectrophotometer at a cost of approxi-
mately $4,000. This instrument is essential to present activities, but its cost was
25 per cent more than the capital outlay budget for the entire School of Home
Economics in 1961-62. Research potential will be seriously handicapped if ad-
ditional funds are not made available within the near future.
For undergraduate work, it is a matter of concern that a plan for syste-
matic replacement of equipment has not been possible. Within a 3 to 5 year
period there will be a large inventory of obsolete equipment needing replace-
ment. In addition to funds for capital outlay, substantial increases in ex-
pense funds are needed to maintain an adequate supply of teaching and illustra-
tive material. There is a pressing need for increased home management fa-
cilities. The present home management house was built in 1927, and no additions
have been made since that time. The capacity for providing adequate experience
in this area for home economics students has been far over-reached.
Regarding faculty, the Department of Clothing and Textiles needs to be
strengthened by the addition of a person who can help to develop the graduate
program and amplify the current research. The rapid technological develop-
ments in the textile industry have increased the need for research on per-
formance, use, and care of textile products. One of the members of this faculty,
an assistant professor, retired at the end of the 1961-62 academic year. Replace-
ment with a suitable person has not been possible because of the rank assigned
to this position. Since the retirement of Dr. Mildred Morgan in 1960, every
effort has been made, but without success, to secure a replacement who can
participate in the Inter-divisional Doctoral Program in Marriage and Family
Living in the area of family counseling. This is a pressing need. The chief dif-
ficulty has been the rank and salary budgeted for this position.
Faculties with a preponderance of members holding full or associate professor-
ships are characteristic of schools of home economics which offer, as does this
School, diversified undergraduate and graduate major curricula requiring a
faculty with a high degree of specialization in the several widely different areas
of home economics. Since home economics is an applied field, individuals capable
of offering acceptable work at upper division undergraduate or at the graduate
level must be well trained in the basic science or art on which the subject matter
of their specialization is built, as well as in their special area of the home-
economics field. Personnel thus highly educated are not plentiful, and a school
which demands a high degree of training has difficulty both in filling new posi-
tions and in securing replacements unless rank and salary are relatively high.
The land grant institutions have certain funds and facilities available to
their Colleges of Agriculture and Home Economics which other schools do
not have. Because this School of Home Economics is not located in a land grant
university, it has not been able to share in the privileges which accrue to
schools of home economics in many other states. Recently, the President of the
University of Florida designated the School of Home Economics at The Florida
FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY 17
State University as its unit for resident instruction. This arrangement, how-
ever, does not yet include our participation in the research programs of the
experiment station. Where a similar situation exists in several other states,
cooperative plans have been worked out, and the schools of home economics in the
non-land grant state institutions have shared in the work of the experiment sta-
tions and other aspects of the land grant programs. It is hoped that some such
cooperative arrangement will be possible in Florida.
This last biennium can probably best be described as a period of intensive
self-study. A careful evaluation was made of the programs and of the relation-
ship between these programs and the rest of the university, as well as the
University System in the State. This study provided the stimulus for revisions
in some programs and the basis for the planning necessary for the change to
trimester operation with its many ramifications. Each member of the faculty
was actively involved in this process. It has been a busy and stimulating period.

THE SCHOOL OF MUSIC
To the President of The Florida State University
The School of Music recognizes that one of the primary aims of liberal
education is the understanding of civilization. Music has been an integral part
of every country, and, therefore, is included among the great traditions which
the University seeks to cultivate. Hence, to study and experience the best of
music is to partake of the best in civilization. Studies in music-as they convey
an aspect of civilization-are inherently liberal studies. As such, they should
be available to all students of the University, regardle-; of their professional
The School of Music believes in the integral importance of all levels of
study, with pre-college training as an ideal beginning, with the first two years
of college study as the critical phase, and the upper division and graduate levels
as the natural continuation leading to artistic and intellectual maturity.
During the biennium, honors classes were initiated in music theory, the his-
tory of music, and the literature of music. During 1961-62 a comprehensive
program of honors was formally structured under an Honors Council. As Honors
Coordinator, Dr. John F. Spratt established an effective liasion with the
Honors Program of the University.
Following its established pattern of cooperation with the junior colleges of
the State, the School of Music has received support from a select group of junior
colleges on a proposed new approach for the transfer of credit in music.
Beginning in the summer of 1961, the Opera Guild of The Florida State
University presented a summer repertorie of eighteenth-century opera in the
Asolo Theatre of the Ringling Museum in Sarastota. This project is being car-
ried on in conjunction with the dramatics program of the Department of the
Three outstanding national awards were won by FSU music students dur-
ing the biennium. One student was winner of the Federation of Women's Clubs
18 PRESIDENT'S REPORT
Piano Student Contest, another won the Federation of Womens Clubs Young
Artists Contest, and a third was recipient of a Rockefeller Grant for Advanced
As far as the faculty and administration of the School of Music are con-
cerned, the outstanding activity of the biennium has been research into the
administration of music. This responsibility has been a major time consumer.
The entire music faculty participated. If forthright decisions of policy result
from such studies, they will not have been pursued in vain. These studies include
the Role and Scope studies of The Florida State University School of Music, a
report to the President regarding the numbers of hours required in the field
of music in comparable degrees in eleven university schools of music, a pro-
jection for the School of Music to 1970 and 1975, and a report concerning the
role of the School of Music as the only school of its kind in a state university of
Florida. Studies were also made on the administration of the music section of
The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and of the National
Association of Schools of Music Self Study.
The faculty roster has remained practically stationary over the last period
of years. One new member was added during the biennium to replace a va-
cancy caused by the death of the world-famous composer, Ernst Von Dohnanyi.
The faculty has continued to receive honors on the national scene. Composers
Floyd and Boda have received a number of substantial commissions for creative
work. An International Institute of Education grant was allocated to Mr.
Schmidt for teaching in Formosa and Indonesia. Doctors Cooper and House-
wright were authors of public school music books published during the past
two years. Professors Nikolaidi and Kilenyi accepted a number of concert tour
dates throughout the United States and Canada. Dr. Kuersteiner contributed to
the lecture series and publication of the Southern Culture Institute at Long-
wood College in Virginia. Dr. Housewright was chosen by the University faculty
as the Distinguished Professor for 1961-62.
Faculty and administration participated widely in meetings of professional
associations as lecturers and artists, in music clinics, in concerts, and on stand-
ing committees, and served as consultants in the state and elsewhere.

include a role and scope commensurate with the established record and tradition
of education in music on the FSU campus, a faculty roster sufficiently large to
fulfill the on-campus needs for music study, a faculty available to serve the
extension phase of the Florida Institute for Continuing University Studies,
a greatly increased budget for graduate assistants, and sufficient salary monies
to establish the faculty of the School of Music at its rightful salary position
above rather than below the average salaries by rank and school of the
University as during the last two academic years.
There is a place in the State of Florida for the finest university school of
music in America. Even a cursory view of the inherent opportunities for such
a school reveals the wisdom of developing it on this campus. Such a develop-
ment would fulfill the "unprecedented opportunities" envisioned by the Board
of Control. Such a high quality educational program is both realistic and
economical for the State.

THE SCHOOL OF SOCIAL WELFARE
To the President of The Florida State Unicie itl
The goals of the School of Social Welfare are to inform students on social
welfare issues; to educate professional practitioners in social work, marriage and
family counselors, and correctional administrators who are competent in
individual endeavors and in leadership; and to evolve new patterns of social
welfare services and to discover new knowledge through research.
The School recognizes its responsibility for curricula at the undergraduate
level which will enable the student to understand the processes whereby the
values and concepts of the American tradition are translated into social welfare
policies and services.
During the biennium the enrollment in our programs, both on and off-campus,
continued to grow. The enrollment in the two-year graduate program in social
work in 1961-1962 was 146, which was the eighth largest in the country. Con-
tinual growth in enrollment is to be expected. Each year during the biennium
an average of 60 students received bachelor's degrees, 40 master's degrees, and
2 doctoral degrees. On the basis of students accepted, 55 to 60 master's degrees
will be conferred in 1962-63. The School has taught six extension classes dur-
ing each year of the biennium. Fifteen Family Life Institutes and Workshops
were conducted during 1960-61, and eighteen during 1961-62. The demand for
this type of off-campus service has been far greater than our staff could meet.
The School of Social Welfare carries on several kinds of services not classified
within its functions of higher education and research but which are inherent
in the operation of a professional school. Primarily those services are to
agencies, organizations, groups, and individuals in Florida, but they are also
available to the southeast region as second in priority. They take the form of
off-campus institutes, short courses, workshops, conferences, and consultation
for upgrading of personnel in many phases of social welfare, social work, and
corrections. The Delinquency Control Institute, which is offered annually, is a
good example of activity in corrections. The Southern Conference on Corrections
which we sponsor is another type of activity in this area.
Two significant additions were made to the staff in corrections-Dr. George
G. Killinger and Dr. Stephen Schafer. Dr. Killinger ,was a member of the U.S.
Bureau of Pardons and Paroles from 1945 to 1960. During the second world
war he was chairman, Clemency and Parole Board, U.S. Army, The Pentagon,
Washington, D. C. Dr. Stephen Schafer, a noted European scholar, joined the
staff in the fall of 1961. He has taught at the University of Hungary and has
held positions on various governmental commissions dealing with crime and
delinquency. Both men have made significant contributions to criminology as
well as to corrections.
20 PRESIDENT'S REPORT
The School of Social Welfare received four training grants during the bien-
nium in psychiatric social work, school social work, geriatrics, and vocational
rehabilitation. These grants have provided funds for faculty salaries, secretarial
help, travel, and supplies and equipment.
We are now in the planning phases of a doctoral program in the School
of Social Welfare. As the eighth largest school of its kind in the country and
the largest in the South, it is incumbent on us to provide post-master's education
and training to meet the needs of the state and region. Such a program will
provide well-qualified personnel for research, teaching, and administration in
community mental health, public welfare, vocational rehabilitation, corrections,
child welfare, community organization, urban renewal, and related areas.
Due to the nature and character of the educational programs in the School
of Social Welfare we look forward to the expansion of our off-campus programs
through the Florida Institute for Continuing University Studies. Short
courses, institutes, and work conferences-on and off campus-will be expanded
to meet the needs of agency personnel in corrections, social work, and public
welfare. Our faculty is now engaged in various aspects of staff development in
several institutions in the State Department of Corrections. This work will
For a decade and a half the School of Social Welfare has made available
members of our staff-on a limited basis-to conduct family life institutes under
the auspices of various community groups-religious, civic and educational. The
School will expand this program through the Florida Institute for Continuing
University Studies. These institutes provide a service to our people that is not
provided by any other educational institution in the State. And these institutes
have met with universal approval.
The School of Social Welfare is an "atomized" group. Its faculty is located in
offices in four separate buildings. The class rooms are in three separate build-
ings-and no offices are in the building where most of the classrooms are
located. A grouping of offices and classrooms would greatly facilitate our
Our fundamental and basic needs are a building that would enable us to
bring offices and classrooms together, adequate faculty and secretarial staff, and
additional funds to replace faculty and staff now on grant funds which are
When these basic needs are met, then we as a School can move ahead to
achieve what a university, a state, and a region should logically expect of us.
To be sure, our growth and development have been phenomenal, but there are
significant programs and plans envisaged which we can and will achieve in the
immediate future. We are confident that our basic needs will be met, enabling
us to bring such plans and programs to fruition.

THE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS
To the President of The Florida State Unilc rsP;l,
Since the establishment of the School of Business, the undergraduate cur-
riculum has been under continuous revision in order to adapt instruction in
modern concepts and philosophies to educational objectives. During the 1960-62
biennium this process was accelerated. The curriculum has changed from an
emphasis on specialized courses to an emphasis on a balanced program of study.
This study, beginning in college and continued throughout life, is aimed at pro-
viding the student with liberal and cultural education; a theoretical knowledge of
broad areas of management responsibility; and adequate proficiency in an area
of professional specialization.
The present curriculum reflects the collective criticisms and advice of our
faculty, interested business leaders, and serious evaluations made of profes-
sional schools of business. The School relied heavily on two scholarly studies by
the Carnegie Corporation and the Ford Foundation in the revision of its philos-
ophy and curriculum.
The School completed two significant studies during the 1:'.,;.-t2 biennium.
These were the Report to the Accreditation Committee of the American As-
sociation of Collegiate Schools of Business, and the Role and Scope of the School
of Business of The Florida State Uniiur rsitfl.
On the basis of a comprehensive report the School of Business was granted
membership in the American Association of Collegiate Schools of Business. The
Role and Scope report set forth in considerable detail the objectives, organiza-
tion, and needs of the School of Business for the period 1962-1:75.
Major effort during the biennium resulted in -trengthening the faculty, im-
proving classroom instruction, augmenting research and service activities, and
upgrading the quality of the student body. The School made a strong effort to
combine and reduce unnecessary courses.
The School has matured considerably. Its faculty members deserve special
commendation for accomplishments made under severe handicaps. Because of
heavy enrollments the faculty carried maximum allowable teaching loads with
large classes. The School of Business continued to lack an equitable assign-
ment of faculty. Relative to other professional schools in the University and in
other schools of business at other universities, the faculty-student ratio is
In addition to more faculty, the School needs a larger propurtio i of faculty in
the associate professor and professor ranks. Approximately 60 per cent of all
classes in the School are taught by teaching assistants, instructors, and assistant
professors. The comparable ratio for other collegiate schools of business is
from 30 to 35 per cent.
The School of Business anticipates working closely with the Florida In-
stitute for Continuing University Studies. In thus assisting to strengthen the
business activity of the state, the School of Business will improve the tax
base for supporting all governmental services.
Three programs implemented during the biennium which deserve special
recognition are the Graduate Program in Research and Development Manage-
ment developed for and supported entirely by the Air Force at the Eglin Air
22 PRESIDENT'S REPORT
Force Base, the Graduate Program in Accounting leading to the degree of Master
of Accountancy, and the Hospitality Education Program developed jointly with
the Florida Hotel and Restaurant Commission to strengthen the tourism in-
dustry of Florida.
During the biennium the School of Business conferred 612 bachelor's degrees
and 40 master's degrees. Enrollment in the School in full-time equivalent
students was 959 in 1960-61 and 970 in 1961-62.
Curriculum changes in the School of Business during the biennium have in-
cluded an increase in the amount of general education study required of all
students in the School, an expansion of the core business subject area, and re-
organization of specialized business subject courses and reduction in their
In accounting course offerings have been reduced to 11 for undergraduates,
9 of which are for accounting majors and 2 of which are service courses.
During this biennium the curriculum in finance was studied and modified
so as to incorporate the most recent progressive developments in the area.
One undergraduate course was dropped. Course offerings were reduced to
9 in insurance and 4 in real estate. Further, the course content in insurance, real
estate, and business law has been strengthened by consolidation and revision.
Actuarial science will be added to the offerings in the Fall Trimester,
1962. Significant strengthening of graduate management courses has been made.
Continued growth in the number of graduate students and their demands has
resulted in new and refeshing approaches to problems.
A significant and far-reaching achievement has been the up-grading and
improvement of course content and approach in the marketing curriculum.
Progress has been made in teaching methods as well. These involved such
changes as the use of non-computerized management games in two courses; more
emphasis on case study and discussion, analysis, problem-solving, and decision-
making; more rigorous project work by students; and more use in some courses of
audio-visual and other teaching aids. A successful experiment has also been
conducted in the use of at least one very large lecture section each semester in
the basic marketing course.
A program of professional education for executive leadership in the hos-
pitality industries was formulated and approved. During this period of orienta-
tion and redirection, letters explaining the changes and the reasons for the
changes were sent to the president and executive vice president of every state
and national hotel and restaurant association in the United States. Articles
describing the department's philosophy of education were sent to the leading
national trade magazines. By the Fall of 1961 most of the industry was aware
of the changes and had approved our redirection.
Grants and Contributions
The School of Business has received encouraging financial assistance from
business concerns during the biennium. These include the following:
Haskins and Sells Foundation Scholarship of $500 for the outstanding
senior student in accounting.
FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY 23
Price-Waterhouse Foundation scholarship grant of $1,000, which is being
used for two scholarships to graduate students in accounting.
Florida Savings and Loan League donation of $650 to be used toward
further development of the area of banking and finance. The Florida Bankers
Association granted 27 scholarships to students in commercial banking.
New York Life Insurance Company grant of $15,000. In addition, a
scholarship foundation was organized in the insurance area and will
provide scholarships beginning in the fall of 1962.
Advertising Federation of America, Fourth District (affiliated advertising
clubs of Florida) scholarships totaling $1,000 to two School of Business stu-
dents. Nelson Poynter Scholarship Foundation award of $500 in the ad-
Continental Baking Company grants in excess of $50,000 during the
biennium in support of the special baking industry program. The Southern
Bakers Association also made substantial grants in the form of student loans
and support for faculty research in this area.
Grants of $1,000 from John R. Thompson, $2,000 from Prophet Company,
and $1,000 from the Florida Hotel Association in support of the Hotel and
Restaurant Management Program.
In spite of the pressing demands of teaching, counseling, committee work,
extension service, and related activities, significant research has also been
accomplished. During this biennium J. Richard Stevens completed and published
a major study of tourist spending and estimated direct tax revenues from tourism
for the Florida Development Commission; a survey of the market potential for
Florida printers in publishing college and high school yearbooks; a market
profile of power-boaters for Outboard magazine; and a public opinion survey on
traffic safety for the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in Washington,
D. C., and for three Broward County safety associations; a nation-wide study,
to be published this year, for the U. S. Small Business Administration on the
effective communication of management and research information to business.
Three other marketing faculty members have completed one or more research
studies in this bienium. Several have published articles in academic journals
and trade publications, and three are currently writing textbooks. Homer Black
and John Champion co-authored a successful textbook for accounting which
is already widely used.
Several significant research projects were completed or are in progress by
faculty members in finance, including several articles in process in the area
of investments by Claude Campbell; an article in the Journal of Insurance on a
comparison of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation by Robert C. Earnest;
several reviews of books in the Journal of Finance by Robert C. Earnest; and
an article in process on the cost of consumer credit by H. C. Edgeworth. E. G.
Bayfield contributed numerous technical articles to national magazines in the
baking industry. 0. D. Dickerson continued preparation of a text and published
numerous articles in the field of insurance.
24 PRESIDENT'S REPORT
The faculty also planned or participated in seminars and conferences in the
retail food service industry, paper industry, hotels, motels, restaurants, bank-
ing, advertising, accounting, residential financing, insurance, tourism, con-
sumer credit, teacher education, industrial baking, and nuclear development.
Projected Plans and Needs
Significant plans for future development include: continuing improvement
of curriculum, course content and teaching methods; more emphasis on quanti-
tative management tools, including computer conversancy; a curriculum in in-
ternational trade; a doctoral program in business; new research projects;
management development programs for executives already in business.
The needs of the School of Business are primarily for more faculty to improve
the critical faculty-student ratio, at least 65 per cent of the faculty in the
upper two ranks to offer work solely in the upper and graduate levels, and ade-
quate operating resources to permit research and faculty development.
In summary, it is fair to state that the biennium has been marked by pro-
gress in education, service, and research. The School has received valuable as-
sistance from the general administration of the University and from other
schools. For this, the faculty are grateful.

THE LIBRARY SCHOOL
To the President of The Florida State University
As the Library School closes its eighth biennium, two challenges of far-
reaching significance to the University and to the State may largley be met by
developments now in embryo.
Certain new projects will require specially trained library personnel. A
Florida Scientific and Technical Information Center such as is sought by the
Florida Council of 100 will require personnel educated not only in science but in
Library Science and its techniques of "information retrieval," literature searching,
documentation, and reference sources. President Kennedy's Alliance for Pro-
gress, if it is to succeed at all, will require library and library science exchange
between latin America and the border states of the United States, of which
Florida is one.
To prepare personnel for the Information Center, the FSU Library School
has already begun to extend its course offerings in Reference, Bibliography,
and Documentation to encompass Information Retrieval Systems, manual as
well as machine. Through the Florida Institute for Continuing University
Studies it is proposed to offer an extension course in Orlando for the training of
personnel in cooperation with the Martin Technical Information Center and
other industries, libraries, and schools.
To prepare personnel for cultural exchange with Latin American countries
the Library School proposes to add an area of concentration in Comparative Li-
brarianship-Latin America. By the spring of 1962, the FSU Library School
had already had at least three approaches on the subject. From Puerto Rico
has come a request to develop a library education program. From Jamaica the
FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY 25
Library School has been asked to undertake a bibliography of the fine West
Indian Collection there. In Mexico an FSU Library School graduate is participat-
ing in Dr. Laubach's "Each One Teach One" Literacy Program. Two of the
major areas of concentration in the proposed doctoral program should be Science
Information, Retrieval and Comparative Latin American Libraria ship.
Organizatio;,. This biennium was the Library School's first as a totally
graduate division of the University. This is a totally graduate program because
the American Library Association accredits only graduate programs in Librian-
ship. FSU has one of the 30 nationally accredited graduate library schools in
the United States and the only one within a radius of 500 miles from the
center of Florida. The A.L.A., however, does make recommendations for under-
graduate programs in library science such as are offered by 560 institutions of
higher education. Because public schools still require bachelor degree librarians,
the Library School offers undergraduate library science courses as part of the
bachelor degree programs in English and history in the College of Arts and
Sciences, and in cooperation with the Audio-Visual Department in the School of
Enrollment. In all programs the Library School has shown enrollment growth.
During the summer of 1960 the enrollment of students was 369. During the fol-
lowing summer the figure rose to 424. In the fall of 1961 the enrollment of
students both in residence and by extension totaled 1195, representing a gain
of 175 over the preceding fall. The enrollment for the spring of 1962 was 1117,
an increase of 205 students over the spring of 1961.
Teaching Load. Consistently the Library School teaching load has been
very high. A study, "An Analysis of Factors Related to the Operation of FSU,
1960-61," indicates that there are 21.3 students per teacher in the Library School
as compared with 17.1 for the University as a whole. The ratio for graduate
students is 11.0 per teacher as compared with 9.4 for the whole University.
This would be even more marked if the Library School had a large enough
faculty to do what A.L.A. requires: offer separate courses for graduate and
undergraduate students. As it is now, in at least 18 semester hours of offering
each semester, undergraduate and graduate students must be taught together
in the same courses. Because of the heavy class load, faculty members have
little time for research or field service.
Master's Program. The A.L.A. accredited program during the biennium
granted 72 master's degrees. These graduates all took positions in academic,
public, school, or special libraries. In some instances graduates had as many
as a dozen bona fide offers. The current shortage of some 20,000 professional
librarians in the nation (1400 in Florida) is caused by surges of library develop-
ment in industry; in government; in rural, urban, and regional public libraries
(from federal and state aid); in higher education; and in school libraries.
Shortages are now so acute that recruitment is being strongly urged by the
26 PRESIDENT'S REPORT
Undergraduate Inter-divisional Programs. During this biennium the ground-
work was laid for three undergraduate interdivisional programs, two of which
are in the College of Arts and Sciences and the other one in the School of Ed-
ucation. In view of the reorganization of audio-visual education it will be
necessary to review the interdivisional program in the School of Education.
Service Courses. L.S. 500, for graduates, has blazed a trail in preparing
students for research. Since 1947, through Graduate Council action, all FSU
graduate students have taken this course, its equivalent in a departmental offer-
ing, or have passed an exemption examination. This course prepares the graduate
student in the skills of literature searching by acquainting him with the basic
bibliographic and information sources fundamental to real scholarship. It also
introduces him to documentation form and equips him with facility in research
library use. In addition, all FSU theses and dissertations are approved for
form by a Library School faculty member who offers hours of counsel to all
thesis and dissertation writers on the campus. I can not say too much in praise
of the work of Professor John Clemons, under whose direction this program is
carried on. An article on this program by Professor Clemons in College and
Research Libraries attracted wide attention.
The undergraduate course on library use, L. S. 105, is now offered in 10
sections each semester to about 300 students. Although this is an exceedingly im-
portant part of the Library School's work, the steadily increasing enrollment has
taken even more teacher time.
Extension. Since 1947 the Library School, with its small faculty, has offered
extension courses in library science to over 4,000 students in 37 counties, rang-
ing in centers from Pensacola to Key West. Cycle programs developed with cer-
tain counties, notably Broward, Duval, Pinellas, and Hillsborough, offer teachers
an opportunity to qualify for Florida Certification through an Extension-
Summer planned program.
Conferences. The Library School was host to the Southern Public Library
Workshop in November, 1960, and to the School Materials Conference in De-
cember. Again in October, 1961, the Southern Public Library Workshop was
sponsored by the Library School. In November, 1961, the first Library History
seminar was held in the Library School under the joint sponsorship of the Ameri-
can Library History Round Table of the A.L.A. and the FSU Library School,
Library, and History Department.
Materials Center. The school laboratory library, staffed by Library School
students under faculty and staff direction, now totals nearly 30,000 accessioned
and unaccessioned volumes. These count as part of the University Library total,
but under Library School direction the Materials Center provides students with
laboratory opportunities for practicing their profession. Located on the ground
floor of the University Library it serves the entire campus but most heavily
the School of Education. In addition to materials in Library Science, children's
literature and current literature, a curriculum library, and a professional ed-
ucation collection are available.
In the fall of 1960, the American Library Association honored the School by
inviting Professor Sarah Reed to become Executive Director of the Committee on
FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY 27
Accreditation and the Division of Library Education. Because of Professor
Reed's outstanding contribution to the school, the loss imposed a heavy burden
on the faculty. Fortunately, Professor Venable Lawson, Chief of Reference at
the Atlanta Public Library, was able to accept the appointment. A temporary
appointment was given also to Professor William Brace in lieu of filling a Re-
search Professorship, newly created. The Dean's leave was partially extended
to September, 1961, to enable him to complete direction of the revision of Collier's
Encyclopedia. Professor Ruth Rockwood completed her doctorate at Indiana Uni-
versity and was elected President of the Florida Library Association. In the fall
of 1961, Professor Galloway resigned to accept a position in the University of
Louisville Library. Her contribution during seven years was significant and will
be missed. Temporarily, her vacancy is being filled by Mrs. Merle Doran, an
FSU graduate, whose husband is working on his doctorate.
Two faculty members were active in encyclopedia work: Mi'- Gregory, as
bibliographer for the American Oxford Encyclopedia, completed three of the
twelve-volume responsibility she has for producing an annotated, selected list of
books for children and young people. The whole work by Professor Gregory will
be one of the major published bibliographies in the field. The dean served as
Editor-in-Chief of Collier's Encyclopedia in its expansion from 20 to 24 volumes
and from 16 million to 22 million words. Also, his tenth book, Instructional Ma-
terials (Ronald) appeared in May, 1960. As chairman of the A.L.A. Committee on
Reference Standards, he is directing a research project to measure the informa-
tion services of U.S. libraries.
Since its accreditation by the A.L.A., the Library School, in the face of in-
creased costs, has fallen somewhat below the standards of the A.L.A. In par-
ticular, the faculty load is much higher than the accredited Library School aver-
age, and the budget will need to be increased to keep pace with the mounting
I cannot close this report without offering my appreciation to Assistant Dean
Clapp and my other colleagues on the faculty and staff who carried on so effec-
tively during my leave of absence. The origin of this leave was unfortunately
obscured by the death of President Strozier. I was willing to undertake this
assignment at the request of the President and the Board of Control, and it
proved challenging and rewarding to me, but I regret deeply the extra burden
it placed on my colleagues.

THE SCHOOL OF NURSING
To the President of The Florida State University
During the past biennium, the School of Nursing has been engaged, like the
University as a whole, in a searching analysis of its philosophy, its curricula, its
functions and contributions. Aside from the regular program of instruction,
this activity has been the major occupation of faculty and staff during the second
year of the biennium.
The philosophy of the School was a primary subject for examination, since
all School activities and attributes are its derivatives. Its fundamental tenets
28 PRESIDENT'S REPORT
stem from the University philosophy and setting within which the School of
Nursing has developed. These tenets are consistent with the University version
of the educated citizen.
Professionally, the School has stressed the concept that the role of the nurse
graduate from a university program is that of leadership which recognizes
clinical competence as its base but not as its sole end. The nursing leader is
expected to be: (1) an effective clinical practitioner, (2) a constructive voice
in community affairs relating to health and other aspects of human welfare,
(3) an influence for progress within professional nursing, (4) a stimulus
for the improvement of nursing care within the agencies through which nursing
service is rendered. For such a role, education for clinical competence and educa-
tion for leadership are dual goals, neither of which can be separated from the
In the light of its examination of purposes and roles, the School of Nursing
reaffirms its beliefs in the soundness of its philosophical approach. In a practical
sense, it appears that approximately forty per cent of the graduates of the
School are functioning in positions of leadership, and that they are meeting their
responsibilities successfully. Since the University graduated its first nursing
students as recently as 1954, this is a substantial percentage in leadership roles.
Enrollment and Graduations
The total enrollment in the School of Nursing where all students are juniors
or seniors, was 87 in the second semester of the years 1961-62. Forty-one students
were graduated with the Bachelor's degree in 1960-61, and twenty-six in 1961-62.
The latter figure does not include the summer-session graduates. This brings
the total of students graduated thus far in the history of the School to 289. En-
rollment increased 7 per cent in the second year of the biennium over the previous
In nursing and other disciplines where continuous field supervision of students
occupies a large share of faculty time, teaching responsibilities cannot be ade-
quately mirrored in semester hours allocated to the respective courses.
Status of Grants
The School has continued to receive funds under Public Law 911 for allow-
ances to graduate nurses preparing for positions of leadership in nursing educa-
tion and nursing service. The allocation for each year of the biennium was
The School was also visited and approved for continuation of a mental health
grant of $7,560 annually for undergraduate instruction in this area.
Curricular Projects and Plans
Integrated Program: As a result of study arising through the role and scope
project, the School of Nursing decided to integrate the considered strengths of its
two curricula, for the B.S. in Nursing and for the B.S. in Nursing Education,
into one comprehensive program. Instead of admitting registered nurses to the
program leading to the B.S. in Nursing Education, as has been done since in-
ception of the program in 1951, all nursing students will be admitted to the
FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY 29
program leading to a B.S. in Nursing. Those courses and experiences from the
B.S. in Nursing Education program which have proved their worth through the
years will now be offered to all students. Some adjustments of the curriculum
for registered nurse students will continue to be made upon the basis of in-
dividual backgrounds and needs. The new single undergraduate curriculum
should result in superior preparation for nursing.
Dean's List: Concern for scholarly attainment prompted specific action upon
the standards which students must meet for inclusion in the Dean's List. After
September, 1962, students will be named to the Dean's List upon attainment of a
3.5 average. To our knowledge, this is the highest requirement in the University
for this honor. However, in the light of growing interest in the intellectual
achievement of students, the required average does not seem unrealistic. Students
achieving an average from 3.0 up to 3.5, will be given "honorable mention,"
with the objective of providing added incentive towards further effort.
The Future: The lack of sufficient housing for undergraduate women has
been of particular importance to the School of Nursing, and has, we believe,
somewhat adversely affected its growth. Our position on the campus is unique in
that the School prepares for a field which is: (1) primarily a woman's profes-
sion, and (2) an undergraduate-level program. The housing shortage for under-
graduate women is therefore of major import in connection with student enroll-
Our status as an undergraduate program has also placed certain limitations
upon our development as a school, for example in the recruitment and retention
of faculty and in the area of research. The School believes that its first phase has
now been concluded and looks forward hopefully to projects requested in the
role and scope study: The approval of a projected three-year program leading to
a Master's degree (third undergraduate year through the Master's level in an
integrated program), the addition of needed faculty, including two with doctoral
degrees, an intensive recruitment program to attract particularly able students
to the new experimental Master's program in nursing, and the erection of a
School of Nursing building.
The School acknowledges with deep appreciation the atmosphere of under-
standing and support which the University administration has developed in
its relationships with the School. The School regards such an administrative
climate as a vital requisite in the movement of the University towards an all

THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
To the President of The Florida State University
The Report of the Graduate School will be presented in three parts, cor-
responding to the three main divisions of authority vested in the School. The
first part concerns the Graduate School proper, the second the various research
institutes administered by the School, and the third the operation dealing with
contract and grant research.
30 PRESIDENT'S REPORT
THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
The biennium which closed on June 30, 1962 was one which was marked by
extensive growth in graduate enrollment, in the number of graduate degrees
granted, and in the expansion of activities by the institutes and the Computing
Center. This continued expansion over the preceding biennium, which had also
been marked by rapid growth, indicates an active and healthy program for
research interests of faculty and students, as well as continued favorable fi-
nancial support by private, State, and national agencies.
Growth of the School is indicated by an increase in the number of graduate
students enrolled, and a corresponding increase in the number of graduate de-
grees awarded. A total of 154 doctoral degrees, out of 855 graduate degrees
all told, were awarded during the biennium, representing an increase of 55 over
the previous biennium. Only the high standards imposed for admission to the
Graduate School and the practical limitation of available financial support
have served to hold the graduate enrollment down to its present 1400. During
the biennium, the Department of Statistics developed a program leading to the
Doctorate, and two other departments are presently forming plans to offer a
Ph.D. degree in the near future.
Dr. John K. Folger became the Dean of the Graduate School during the
present biennium. He began his duties on September 1, 1961, after an extensive
period of duty with the Southern Regional Education Board in Atlanta. Dr. Rus-
sell Keirs and Dr. Thomas R. Lewis are the associate deans of the School.
Dean Kiers handles research contract and grant activities, and Dean Lewis is
in charge of the graduate curriculum and the student programs.
The graduate study program at the Air Proving Grounds Center, Eglin
Air Force Base, Florida, has proved a real success. The program began initially
in mathematics and physics. In the fall of 1961, because of the urgent need
for management personnel training, Florida State Univer.ity. under Air Force
contract, began a graduate program in Research and Development Management.
This new program will be expanded in the next biennium. Full-time professors
from the Florida State campus and in residence at Eglin teach the courses
offered. The teaching personnel at present consist of two professors in mathe-
matics, one in physics, and one in research and development management. About
125 military and civilian personnel are pursuing the graduate programs offered
at this center.
The most immediate need of the Graduate School is the continuing one of
additional financial support for graduate students and for laboratory and office
space for graduate faculty and students. Without adequate financial support,
the brilliant students will go to those institutions offering this support rather
than to Florida State. Without facilities, Florida State cannot hold brilliant
faculty members, even though good salaries are paid.
The need for strengthening those areas of the social sciences and humanities
which receive small help from private and national agencies remains a real
problem. These areas are necessarily dependent for expansion and growth upon
such institutional support as can be provided.

THE RESEARCH INSTITUTES
The Nuclear Research Program
In less than two years, Florida State University has developed an inter-
nationally known Nuclear Research Program. On this campus, the program is
providing facilities and services to aid the academic departments in radiation
and nuclear research. All research is conducted by staff members of the various
academic departments. The research laboratories in the new Nuclear Research
Building were in operation before the fall semester of 1961, when the radia-
tion health officer and the administrative staff moved in.
The Nuclear Research Building is equipped with two Van de Graaff ac-
celerators, one with 12 Mev maximum energy, and the other with an energy
maximum of 3 Mev. They are used by many departments. The research load
on the larger instrument has provided a level of diversity and a stimulation
of creativity not generally found with a single machine. This accelerator has
proved to be of great value in investigating the basic structure of the atom,
as, for example, in testing the optical model of the nucleus. The 3 Mev
machine has been used for more immediately practical matters, such as the
effects of radiation on animals, as well as for basic research.
In addition to the accelerators, the Nuclear Research Program partially
or wholly supports the following services to the various departments:
1. The Office of Radiation Safety, used by all departments with radio-
active research programs. The safety officer monitors all laboratories
for radioactivity, disposes of wastes, and keeps records of the ex-
posure of personnel and the receipt and use of radioactive material at
Florida State University.
2. The Chemistry Department Glass Shop and Electronic Shop which
builds and maintains equipment for all departments.
3. The Biological Sciences Machine Shop and Electronic Shop which services
4. The Physics Department Machine Shop, which builds 'equipment for the
Present planning contemplates the completion of the second and third floor
of the Nuclear Research Building, which will be used for laboratory space
for those using the accelerators. They are now in buildings widely scattered
around the campus. The construction for the second floor is now underway.
Plans also call for the staff additions of an atomic physicist, a radiation
biologist, and an additional radiation chemist, in their respective departments,
to permit an expanded program of research to begin. In addition, plans are
now being formulated for the acquisition of a 20 Mev Tandem accelerator in
two or three years.
With the expansion of facilities and the staff additions mentioned above,
there will be a great need for additional equipment and instrumentation, and
qualified personnel to operate and maintain it. For this reason, the budget
will need to be expanded. With the limitations of the present budget a
problem already exists in procuring personnel.
The Nuclear Research program at Florida State University has attracted
the interest of scientists from distant parts of the world. With the proper
32 PRESIDENT'S REPORT
foresight in the exploitation of the opportunities present, there will be far
more money attracted in the form of research grants than the state will
have invested in the program. The task lies in the continual improvement
and expansion of this facility.
The Oceanographic Institute
The objectives of the Oceanographic Institute are (1) to develop an un-
derstanding of hydro space, particularly the Gulf of Mexico, (2) to contribute to
the education of various kinds of marine scientists, and (3) to contribute to the
development of marine resources of the area.
This has been an active biennium. The Institute participated in several new
research projects in the field of physical oceanography. Guest investigators
came from institutions all over the country to do research at the Alligator
Harbor Laboratory. Among the extracurricular activities of the Institute were
conducting week-end visits of high school biology classes to the Marine
Laboratory. The facilities of the Laboratory were refurnished and increased,
and new dredged channels were provided for the better use of boats from
its 300-foot pier. Large-scale cultures of commercial clams, a cooperative venture
with industrial interests, were commenced during the biennium. Institute mem-
bers participated in various national and international conferences, and also
served in various advisory capacities. In October of 1961 Institute members
initiated the new Space Biosciences Institute, necessitating organizational and
Dr. Gorsline has been Acting Director since October of 1961, but he will
leave in August, 1962. The new director, Dr. Albert L. Collier, will take over in
It has been estimated that the period 1960-1962 has seen a tenfold increase
in oceanographic work by the Institute. This work has been financed by
grants and contracts from the Office of Naval Research, the National
Science Foundation, the Public Health Service, and several others.
New faculty-level appointments are needed in the areas of Marine
Geology, Chemical Oceanography, Descriptive Physical Oceanography, Plankton
Algology, and Ecology, to broaden the Institute's research interests. Addi-
tional supporting staff is also needed, as well as new laboratory and resi-
dence space, at the Alligator Harbor Laboratory.
The Institute of Governmental Research
Since its inception in 1947, the Institute of Governmental Research has
had three main purposes: research, training, and service. Its assistance
has been available on request of state and local governmental agencies and
officials. Institute staff have conducted investigations on various aspects of
the governmental and political processes. Findings from some of the re-
search, training, and service programs have been published in the Institute's
Studies in Government series. In carrying forward its purposes, the Institute
has worked not only through its own staff, but with the faculty and graduate
students of cooperating departments in the social sciences.
Since 1959, the activities of the Institute have undergone considerable
curtailment owing to severe staff depletion. However, the Institute has
FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY 33
tried, with the cooperation of the Department of Government, to maintain
at least a minimal level of performance. Among the activities of the In-
stitute during the 1960-1962 biennium, were staff service for the Judicial
Council of Florida, a classification and pay plan for the County of Hills-
borough, a personnel handbook for the Seminole County Road Department,
and the Know Your Government program for high school students.
In July, 1962, a member of the Institute staff left on a one-year leave of
absence to serve on the Governor's Joint Community Impact Coordination
Committee in the Cape Canaveral area as the Committee's executive secretary.
The Committee deals with problems that will have an impact on Florida
communities in the six-county area surrounding the Atlantic Mi..ile Range.
Institute staff are engaged in two new research projects. One of these is
a study of the local bill problem in Florida. This is not a new problem, but
a comprehensive study of the various aspects of this legislative practice in
Florida has been needed for a long time. The second new project is an
identification and measurement of the attitudes of public employees in
federal, state, and municipal agencies in the Tallahassee area.
Just before the end of the biennium, an additional project, prompted by
interest in the U.S. Supreme Court's decisions on legislative representation in
the spring of 1962, dealt with the establishment of a model state legislative
representation system based on equal-population districts.
The position of Director of the Institute of Governmental Research, vacated
during the preceding biennium with the resignation of Mr. Penrose B.
Jackson, remained vacant throughout the past biennium. Dr. Albert L. Sturm
of the University of West Virginia has accepted the position of Director,
effective at the beginning of the 1962-1963 academic year. Many of the
staff have been on leaves of absence or have resigned, leaving several un-
filled positions which have impaired the Institute's functioning.
The Institute received a grant of $4,864.53 from the County of Hillsborough,
Florida, for the classification and pay plan, and a grant of $579.00 from the
Seminole County Road Department for the personnel handbook. Because of
inadequate staff, the Institute declined a proposed grant of $50,000 for an
urban renewal housing survey in the City of St. Petersburg.
Interim direction of the Institute of Governmental Research during the
past biennium has been a care-taking function. Faced with constant staff
depletion since 1959, the Institute has been able to maintain a minimal level
of its traditional activities largely through the cooperation and part-time
assistance of members of the faculty of the Department of Government.
The immediate need confronting the newly-appointed Director in Septem-
ber, 1962, will be for a staff. Related to this need is the question of what
is to be in the future the Institute's necessary and proper role in the State
and region, in relation to the various departments and the other research
institutes of the Florida State University, and in relation to the other com-
ponents of the state university system. It is further suggested that the need
for staff and the question of role ought to be considered on the basis of
discussions among the appropriate deans, department heads, and research
institute directors of the University.

The Institute for Space Biosciences.
The Institute, officially initiated on November 1, 1961, is an integral part
of Florida State University. The objective of the Institute is the investiga-
tion of the processes involved in the origin, evolution, and development of
organisms under terrestrial and extraterrestrial conditions. The emphasis is
on comparative biochemistry and other aspects of comparative biology in

of the new Institute of Space Biosciences. Dr. C. B. Metz and Dr. Seymour Hess,
the former an embryologist, and the latter a meteorologist, complete the pro-
Dr. Thadeus Mann from the University of Cambridge, England, presently

vestigatorship. The research staff includes five graduate associates and ten
At the present time the Institute is located in the Conradi Building and
the Mathematics-Meteorology Building. The chief problem is to secure ade-
quate and consolidated working space as well as sufficient equipment to carry
on the research programs.
The Computing Center
The Computing Center provides computing and data processing services
for the entire university research and educational program. The Center also
provides limited and occasional administrative service to the Board of Control.
During the present biennium there has been considerable increase in instructional
use of the Computing Center, although research utilization still accounts for
the greatest portion of the use.
During the biennium, the computer facilities have increased considerably.
There has been an increase in computer services performed by the Center
by a factor of about 35 over the two-year period, due in large part to the
replacement of the IBM 650 computer with an IBM 709 computer. This new
machine has a speed of about 20 times the old one, and it is operated for two
shifts a day instead of the slightly more than one shift a day the old one
operated. During the last quarter of the biennium, service was rendered to 76
projects from 18 University departments.
This growth was made possible by significant increases in state budgetary
support and by income from supported research users augmented by a
$200,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to aid in the cost
of purchasing the 709 computer. A computer programming course, MS-400,
was added at the request of the science department heads in February of
1962 and has been very much in demand. With partial grant support, the Com-
puting Center, in cooperation with a University steering committee, has planned
and conducted a study of administrative uses of computers in American colleges
Further expansion to cope with the increasing demands on the Center
will come with the lease in October, 1962, of an IBM 1401 computer.
At the start of the biennium, Mr. Robert DesJardins was serving as man-
ager of the Computing Center, with Mr. Fred Jaap as assistant manager.
FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY 35
After the resignation of Mr. DesJardins in 1960, Mr. Jaap became acting
manager and Dr. E. P. Miles, Jr. became Director of the Center. There were
several increases in personnel at the research associate and graduate assistant
level during the biennium. Additional faculty-level positions are planned for the
next biennium to be shared with various academic departments utilizing the com-
The Institute for Social Research
The Institute for Social Research has four major functions: (1) to provide
research training for graduate students in the social sciences; (2) to encourage
research among the faculty in the social sciences; (3) to provide consulting
services and facilities for graduate and faculty research; and (4), to provide
consulting service to state agencies and local communities where appropriate.
The Institute's research activities can be classified in the three broad areas
of urban research, higher education research, and demographic research.
In the field of urban research the Institute has conducted the following
work: a sample survey of Daytona Beach and other southern communities
on the effectiveness of a bi-racial committee appointed by the city government;
an ecological study of Jacksonville, using block statistics of the 1960 Census; and
a study of displaced persons under urban renewal. Presently underway in this
area are a community survey in Cocoa, Florida, and a voting-behavior study
in Jacksonville. The survey in Cocoa focuses on attitudes toward the role of
working mothers, civil defense, the judiciary, and mental health. The Jackson-
ville study focuses on the last primary and is looking toward the general election
in November, 1962.
In the area of higher education research, the Institute has been continuing
an analysis of survey data of some 9000 college seniors, including data from a
follow-up questionnaire one year later. In addition, a similar study is under-
way of about 700 Negro high school seniors, pertaining to educational and
occupational goals. College enrollment projections have been made for the
State of Florida through 1975. These projections, to be up-dated every two
years, are to be the official ones used by both the Board of Control and the
Junior College Division of the State Department of Education. The Institute has
participated in the State-wide Role and Scope Study analyzing data on
student characteristics for some 50,000 students.
In demographic research several studies have been made relating to patterns
of urban growth.
In addition to the above research programs, the Institute has provided
consultation services to several State and local agencies.
The Institute has received a three-year grant totalling $110,000 from the
Rockefeller Foundation for research in the field of race relations. A five-year
research and training grant in Community Mental Health has been approved by
the National Institute of Mental Health, to begin on July 1, 1962.
The Institute for Social Research has a continuing need for additional
physical space as its work expands. In addition, the establishment of at least
three more research positions would be advantageous. These would allow for
expansion of the research activities in mental health, economics, political sociology,
and urban planning.
36 PRESIDENT'S REPORT
The Institute of Human Development
In keeping with the philosophy and goals of the University, a major goal
of the Institute of Human Development is to provide University faculty and
graduate students from all disciplines of the University with facilities and op-
portunities to do extensive controlled scientific research. The Institute provides
a children' laboratory and a Human Development Clinic for the purposes of its
research. While the Clinic personnel devote their efforts mainly to training and
research, during 1960-61 actual clinic contact-hours amounted to 1399, a
slight decrease from the 1959-60 total of 1495 hours, and climbed to 1561 hours
during 1961-62. In addition, clinic personnel devoted 6704 hours to research
testing and data collection during the biennium. An all-time high of 57 graduate
students participated regularly in clinic activities during 1961-62 as registrants,
interns, or research assistants.
Institute facilities and services have helped make possible large training
grants in clinical and school psychology. In September, 196'l, the Institute
began operation of the Alumni Village Nursery School as an additional re-
search and training laboratory.
During the biennium, the Institute, assisted by fourteen faculty members
from various departments, completed the first two years of an extensive
longitudinal study of twins. This research is expected to continue during 1962-
63 and for an additional three years thereafter.
The clinic staff has recently completed data on mathematically gifted students.
A Neurophysiological Laboratory in the west basement of Montgomery Gym-
nasium was placed into operation in September, 1961.
If FSU hopes to maintain and improve its position in human development
research, the State should make available the necessary funds to expand and
intensify a program of basic research which would attract other grants and
funds from business, industry, government, and individuals. Since most of
the Institute's laboratories are now housed in temporary and inadequate quarters,
a great need exists for a combined children's laboratory and research building.
Also, the Institute needs additional personnel to encompass all the various
areas of human development. Lack of faculty time assigned to the Institute
makes it difficult to plan adequately and secure outside research funds.
The Institute of Molecular Biophysics
In September of 1960 the first year of research of the Institute of Molecular
Biophysics was begun with the appointment of one professor and several technical
staff members. The Institute began operation under a $3,000,000 grant from the
Atomic Energy Commission. It was to conduct a general program of fundamental
studies in the application of chemical physics to molecular biology. At the
end of the five-year period covered by the grant, a survey will be made of the
relative achievement of the Institute in its fundamental program, and the pos-
sibility of continued support by the AEC will be decided.
The Director of the Institute is Dr. Michael Kasha from the Chemistry De-
partment. Dr. Hans Gaffron, representing the biological sciences, is the Acting
A Molecular Biophysics Committee, chaired by the Director of the Institute,
is concerned with the general development of the Institute. The Committee, con-
