James O. Breeden faculty papers, 1959-1993
This collection is comprised of papers from Southern Methodist University history professor James Breeden on administration, academic, campus life, and athletic issues at SMU from the 1970s through the early 1990s. Most of the collection is made up of correspondence, meeting minutes, reports, and other papers related to university operations. Of particular interest in this collection is material on courses and curriculum development (including some of Dr. Breeden’s history courses), faculty compensation and benefits during this time period, university committees and groups such as the Faculty Senate, University Assembly, Undergraduate Council, Women’s Studies Council, and the Faculty Athletic Committee. Some material on the 1986-87 football "death penalty" is also included.
