Scope and Content Note

The changes and improvements which occurred at North Carolina State College (later, University) during Chancellor Bostian's administration mirror much of what was happening in the United States of America at the time, and are reflected within these records. During Bostian's chancellorship, NC State grew in enrollment to 5,000 students. For the first time, African-American undergraduates enrolled at the school and a woman obtained a Ph.D. Integration in Athletics led to equal opportunities for all students and athletes. Sports continued to be at the heart of student affairs, as the Wolfpack basketball team won its first ACC championship during the innaugural ACC season.

NC State's nuclear reactor, its use, and its safety were an important issue. Similarly, the college continued to establish itself as a leader in scientific research, as it created the Research Triangle Institute with Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill.

During this time, many departments grew and developed new projects and developments. The School of Physical Science and Applied Mathematics was established. There was also a strong emphasis on foreign relationships, as cooperative efforts like the Peru Project were created.

The records of the Office of the Chancellor during Carey Bostian's adminstration range in date from 1954 to 1959.

Historical Note

Carey H. Bostian was born in 1907 in China Grove, Rowan County, North Carolina and graduated from Catawba College with a B.S. in 1928. From the University of Pittsburgh, he earned an M.S. and Ph.D. in 1930, and 1933, respectively.

Bostian taught at Catawba College for a summer session before joining the zoology faculty of North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering (later North Carolina State University) in the autumn of 1930. He was appointed to several positions in the School of Agriculture. He was named associate dean in 1948, director of instruction in 1950, and professor of genetics and director of instruction in 1952.

Bostian assumed the chancellorship of North Carolina State College in 1953, and he served in it until 1959, when he returned to teaching. During his tenure, the college completed a multi-million dollar expansion, the program of student activities was greatly enlarged, and enrollment passed 5000 for the first time. Bostian retired from teaching in 1973, and he died in 2000 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

The Chancellor is the chief administrative and executive officer, leader and spokesperson of North Carolina State University. The Chancellor, who has complete executive authority for the university, subject to the direction of the president and the board of trustees, defines the scope and authority of faculties, councils, committees, and officers of North Carolina State University, is a member of all faculties and other academic bodies of the university, and has the right to preside over the deliberations of the legislative bodies of the faculties of the institution. The Office of the Chancellor retains authority in faculty and EPA personnel, student matters, contracts, leases, and other agreements, and the acquisition and disposition of property.

The title of the head of North Carolina State University has changed over time. First the university was led by a president (1889-1934), then a vice president of the Consolidated University (1934), then a dean of Administration (1934-1945), and finally a chancellor (1945-present).
