Scope and Contents of the Materials

The collection consists of papers of Delyte W. Morris from 1916-1971.  The papers include general administrative records; budgets, and other financial reports; requisitions; and physical plant. There are also materials relating to new faculty and staff, reports and studies, as well as materials related to various conferences and meetings.  There are materials related to the Civilian Pilot Training program, as well as correspondence with Charles Tenney, George Hand, Henry William Shryrock, Roscoe Pulliam and Chester Lay.

The records reflect Morris's service as Southern Illinois University's longest serving (1948-1970) president.  During his presidency, Southern Illinois University was transformed from a teacher's college, to the second-ranking public comprehensive research university in Illinois.  Among his many accomplishments, Morris instituted Ph.D. programs and created family housing. He lobbied for and got the TV station, the FM radio station, the university press, the news service, and outdoor education.  He also promoted ecology, just as he provided facilities for the handicapped years before society demanded them. He brought to the school such luminaries as R. Buckminster Fuller, Katherine Dunham and Marjorie Lawrence. He also developed Southern Illinois University's law, medical, and dental schools, as well as Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
