This collection is composed of color slides, both mounted and unmounted, and a few audio-visual materials. The slides are divided by location and theme of student activities. The images illustrate students engaging in social and athletic activities. The athletics depicted include action images of football, track and field, basketball, and baseball. There are also images of locations, both on and off campus. A series of images that may have been used by the Dean of Students Office for promotional materials for the Institute is also included. There is a category of unidentified artwork that may have come from an exhibit on campus or in Atlanta. Several slides document Georgia Tech laboratory interiors and experiments. Also included in this collection are duplicates of historic images of Georgia Tech from the early 1900s. None of the events are identified as a specific student organization.
A film and two reel-to-reel audiotapes comprise the audio-visual materials in this collection. There is a tape interview by the Georgia Tech television channel of three female members of the incoming freshman class, an unplayable tape, and an unidentified film interview.
Created in 1922, the office of the Dean of Students was originally known as the Dean of Men. Floyd Field, the head of Georgia Tech’s mathematics department, served as Tech’s first Dean of Men. When Field retired in 1945, George Griffin was appointed to the position. Griffin was followed by James Dull who served from 1964-1991. From 1995-2006, the Dean of Students was Gail DiSabatino. John Stein was named to the position in 2007.
The office of the Dean of Students supervises all student activities and student services outside of the academic realm. They have jurisdiction over all of Georgia Tech’s student organizations. The office is also concerned with student well-being and assists in the adjustment to college life. They offer student support services and activities and advocate on behalf of students.
This collection is arranged into 10 series: Artwork, Athletics, Atlanta Environs, Campus, Driving Sequence, Events, Historic Images, Promotional Materials, Student Life, and Technology and Research.
