The University of Maryland M Book serves as the student handbook provided to all incoming freshman. The M Book includes messages from administrators, university bylaws and rules of behavior, academic calendars, and information about campus life, student organizations, and parking. This collection consists of six photographs (8x10) of university administrators from the 1950s and 1960s: Adele Stamp (Dean of Women), Albin Kuhn (Executive Vice President), Leon Smith (Dean of Arts & Sciences), Frederic Mavis (Dean of the College of Engineering), Lester Fraley (Dean of Physical Education), and Gordon Cairns (Dean of the College of Agriculture).
