Office of the Provost Records
Though the records of the Office of the Provost contain some material that is duplicated in other University record groups (such as those of the Office of the President and the dean of the faculty), there are specific subjects that this collection documents especially well. The provost (rather than the president) has primary responsibility for oversight of the University's affirmative action programs, computing, the University Library, the Art Museum, and the Plasma Physics Lab, which results in extensive documentation of these topics.
War Service Bureau Records
Consists of the records of the Bureau. Included in the documentation are biographical, military, and school-related information; correspondence between students and University staff, faculty, and students; and subject files from the Bureau’s office. While there are only information cards for Class of 1943 members, there are individual folders for most men in the Classes of 1944 through 1949. There are also questionnaires (see restrictions) containing academic and personal information, and issues of TIGER TALES, the Bureau’s monthly newsletter.
Box one contains twentieth-century articles about the lotteries, as well as materials from a 1954 University Library exhibit on the lotteries. Boxes two and three contain eighteenth-century lottery documents about the following five lotteries: the Philadelphia Lottery (1749-1750), the Connecticut Lottery (1753-1754), the New Jersey College Lottery (1761), the New Jersey College Lottery (1763-1764), and the Delaware Lottery (1772-1774). All drawings were held in the locations specified except the New Jersey College Lottery of 1761, which was held in Philadelphia.
Senior Thesis Collection
The collection contains the senior theses of Princeton undergraduates. Not every senior thesis completed by a Princeton student is represented in this collection, as some science-related theses are held at the Lewis Library. Most of the senior theses remain in their original format, however select volumes have been converted to microfiche.
