The Social Science Department, which existed until the academic year 1965/66, was the predecessor of the departments of Economics and Business Administration, Geography, History, Political Science, and Sociology. During the period covered by this series, the chairmen of the department were Drs. Walker D. Wyman (until mid-1962), Charles J. Graham (1962-1963), and Edward N. Peterson (1963-1965/6). When the department was broken up, Dr. Peterson became chairman of the History Department.

This series is a composite, containing files on Dr. Wyman, Graham, Peterson, and James T. King of the History faculty. These materials were received in several accessions; many of the folder headings were created at the time of archival processing. Particularly significant materials are found in the Charles J. Graham correspondence folders. Valuable Materials for institutional history are also found und the heading "Social Science Department/Division," "Faculty Council," and "Graduate Program and Committee." See especially the 11-page report, The Development of the Department of Social Science (December 1964), under the heading "Social Science Department/Division."
