Committee on the Presidency, 1953-1954
These materials are divided into three parts. The first section is Charles P. McCormick's personal papers on the search for the president, which are arranged in reverse chronological order as Mr. McCormick had arranged them. Many of these materials concern Wilson Elkins.
The second grouping of papers documents each of the candidates for president and is arranged alphabetically by the candidate's name.
The final set of papers consists of the committee's administrative papers. These have been retained in the order in which Judge Cole, chair of the committee, had kept them. These include statistics on salaries at other universities, lists of candidates, letters concerning the rumor that Harry S Truman was a candidate for the university president and Judge Cole's general correspondence on the search.
