Overview and metadata sections
The New Jersey Board of University Extension was proposed in 1915 by Princeton president John Grier Hibben to formulate a strategy for the coordination of the university extension programs of the various colleges in the New Jersey area. The board, comprised of representatives from Princeton, Rutgers, Stevens, and the New Jersey Board of Education, studied the disparate continuing education efforts of the relevant institutions, and made proposals for the improvement of these programs.
The records consist of organizational materials pertaining to the formation of the Board as well as plans and conference minutes. Also included are letters from conference invitees, indicating their intentions to attend. The bulk of these invitees were New Jersey politicians and college administrators.
