Found in 12 Collections and/or Records:
The John R. Coleman files, 1967-1977, document the presidency of Haverford's ninth President. These are only a selection of the president's files. Although they do not give a full record of Coleman's administration, there is substantial information on Haverford's response to the Vietnam War and the debate over bringing coeducation to the college. Debates over diversity, governance, and curriculum are also found in Coleman's files.
Isaac Sharpless's papers consist of two letter books containing copies of his outgoing correspondence as President of Haverford College as well as a scrapbook containing newspaper and journal articles by and about Sharpless.
Robert Bocking Stevens files, from ca. 1978 to June 1987, are the administrative files of Haverford's tenth President. Memoranda, correspondence, reports, and other material document his administration, particularly issues of diversity, improvements to the academic program and administrative functions, cooperation with Bryn Mawr College, fund raising, and the college's Quaker foundation.
