Scope and Content

The Office of Records and Registration, referred to here as Registrar's Office, was placed as a sub-group of Academic Administration, as per the 1991-92 organizational chart. Over the years, the office has evolved under the Dean of Instruction and Academic Affairs. There was a migration that began in 1981 that eventually landed the office under Academic Administration. The record group name, Registrar's Office, is reflective of its function. The bulk of the records are a product of the years Dr. Leo Roland was Registrar, 1969-80.

This record group includes class schedules, school bulletins, HEGIS reports and admissions studies. For the years 1915-1932 the school bulletins were distributed as the Edinboro Quarterly. This was a publication of the Alumni Office and they are included in that record group.

Location History

Until 1969, the Registrar was in Normal Hall, which burned that year. That year, the Registrar moved to the Academic Building, sometimes referred to as the Administration Building. This building was renamed Earlly Hall in 1979. The Registrar's Office remained there until 1987, when it was moved to Hamilton Hall, where it still resides as of this writing, 2012.

Administrative History

The earliest mention of the Office of Registrar, is in the 1912-13 catalog for Edinboro State Normal School. Miss Agnes C. Markel is listed as holding the position. It appears the duties of the registrar at this time did not include accepting tuition payments, as it did later. The 1913-14 catalog instructed that the President accepted payments on behalf of the board.

Miss Markel was succeeded in 1915 by Mr. De Forest Bowman. In addition to being registrar, he was business manager and later, secretary to the Board of Trustees. The latter appears to have been part of the duties of the registrar from 1916-29, as his successors were also secretaries to the Board of Trustees.

In her March 30, 1918 resignation as registrar, Miss Inez Baldwin resigned as "registrar and Secretary." Succeeding Miss Baldwin, was Katherine Howland, later Katherine Howland Sallee. In 1929, K.H. Sallee (as she signed her name) became bursar. The transition was a natural one. During her tenure as registrar, the office accepted tuition payments, as well as did the scheduling. K.H. Sallee was also Secretary to the Board of Trustees. This was a post she maintained beyond her tenure as registrar. Thus this duty was no longer associated with the office.

In this year, 1929, a new Dean of Instruction, Mr. Frank S. Heinaman became responsible for scheduling. This office changed leadership in 1937 when Mr. William Wheatley took over as Registrar and Dean of Instruction. According to the George W. Neel dissertation, the registrar's office and Dean of Instruction office were combined in 1938 under the Dr. Carmon Ross administration. Wheatley left this post in 1939. Dr. Herman L. Offner then became acting Dean of Instruction in 1940. Presumably he took over the duties of registrar as well. The following year he was no longer acting Dean, but Dean.

In 1960, Dr. Harry W. Earlly was named Dean of Instruction. Dr. Leo J. Roland was named Assistant Dean of Instruction. Roland later added registrar to his title. In 1968, Dr. James E. McKinley was named Dean of Academic Affairs and Roland is Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs. The following year, Martin Farabaugh was named Director of Scheduling, as scheduling began to separate from the Registrar's duties. Roland, however, maintained the title of Registrar.

For the year 1975, Mr. Blair Henderson was appointed interim Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs. Dr. Roland reemerged in 1976, when he became Dean of General Studies and Registrar. Dr. Lawrence E. Nanns was then named Assistant to the Vice President and Scheduling Officer. In 1977, Nannes moved to Vice President for Student Personnel Services.

The Fall 1981 student directory shows the Registrar's office changing departments. Up to this time, the Registrar's office had been under the head academic officer. As of Fall 1981, the Registrar was under Dr. Roy Stausbaugh, the Dean of Graduate Studies and Academic Administration.

The title of Registrar, always falling in and out of use, is out of fashion again until 1981, when Dr. Jack Williams assumed the title. His tenure ended in 1985 when Mr. Ronald Watkins was named Registrar.

In 1987, Graduate Studies separated from Academic Administration. The Registrar's office stayed under Academic Administration and Ronald Watkins continued as Registrar. He was succeeded in 1990 by Acting Registrar Ms. Sharon Gehrt (now Sharon Pratt). Her title changed in 1991 to Coordinator of Scheduling and Mr. Tim Pilewski became the Coordinator of Records in 1991. Dr. Jerry Kiel became the acting Dean of Academic Administration after the retirement of Dr. Roy Strausbaugh in 1993.
