Charles C. Sherrod Presidential Papers

 Collection — Multiple Containers
Identifier: UnivRec-59
The papers of Charles C. Sherrod concern all aspects of the administration o£ East Tennessee State Teachers College during his term as president, 1925-1949. Records relating to ongoing subjects frequently were carried forward to succeeding administrations by the office of the president. Therefore, records of President B. E. Dossett should be checked for records of President C. C. Sherrod; likewise, the Sherrod Papers may include items from his predecessor's (Sidney Gilbreath) administration. The papers also reflect Dr. Sherrod's relationship with local, county, state and national educational organizations and activities. The records span from 1919-1956 but predominantly cover the period of Sherrod's presidency, 1925-1949.
