Frederic T. Giles papers, 1958-1983.

The collection consists of correspondence, speeches and writings, consultant files, evaluation files, and extensive documentation of Dean Giles's professional activities. These records do not pertain to his function as dean of the College of Education but rather reflect his professional interests and achievements. Giles was an active participant in the expansion of higher education in the United States, with a special interest in community and junior college development. He lectured extensively throughout his career, especially during the years preceeding his deanship, and he also wrote about these subjects and conducted studies on higher education in the state of Washington. His participation in many national associations concerned with higher education, such as the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) and the American Association for Higher Education (AAHE), are especially well documented in this collection.
