DeRosier, Arthur H.

 Person

Arthur H. DeRosier, Jr., began service as president of East Tennessee State University on July 1, 1977. On April 28, 1978, he was formally inaugurated as the university's fifth president. A university inaugural committee planned and organized a weeklong series of events culminating in DeRosier's inauguration, and this collection documents the committee's work and the events of inaugural week. In addition to the actual inauguration, at DeRosier's suggestion the event was used as an opportunity to focus attention on the Appalachian region that the university served. It included concerts, addresses by noted regional and national figures such Wilma Dykeman, Cratis Williams, Natalia Da Rosa, and journalist Hughes Rudd. An arts, crafts and music festival was held on campus as part of these festivities as was the annual meeting of the Council on Appalachian Women, Inc. One outcome of these events was DeRosier's establishment of an Institute of Appalachian Affairs (forerunner of the Center for Appalachian Studies and Services) to study and serve the Appalachian region and make ETSU a regional research university.
