Scope and Content

This series is a collection of Alumni Association reports on UNI alumni who earned advanced academic degrees from 1880 through about 1963; alumni engaged in particular occupations; and alumni sorted by county of residence.  In one group of reports, alumni are divided into categories depending on the advanced degrees that they earned, including Ph. D, M. D., D. D. S., D. V. M., D. D.,and J. D.  There are also files sorted by occupations, including guidance counselors, school superintendents, coaches, researchers, and collegiate faculty and staff.  There is a file of men with master's degrees.  Finally, there is a file of alumni arranged by Iowa county of residence.  There is biographical information about most of the alumni in these files, including graduating class, occupation, academic degrees, address, and spouse.

The reason for the creation of these files is uncertain.  However, some of them may have been created to show that UNI alumni achieved distincition in many professional fields.
