- The L. Eudora Pettigrew papers document the academic and professional career of Dr. L. Eudora Pettigrew (b. 1928), the first African American to hold a position in central administration at the University of Delaware and the first black female president of the SUNY system. The collection chronicles over sixty years of her life as a student, educator, administrator, and global emissary. Spanning the dates 1900 to 2012, the collection also offers insight into the lives of three generations of Pettigrew's family, for whom education and scholarship were clearly valued.
