Historical Note

Elaine Bush Kalmar (1933-2010) joined the faculty of the Department of English Language and Literature at the University of Northern Iowa as an Instructor in 1971. She was promoted to the rank of Assistant Professor in 1972 and Associate Professor in 1978. She retired and received emeritus status in 1999.

Professor Kalmar was a strong supporter of the American Association of University Professors, serving in a number of leadership positions at the local and state levels. She participated in AAUP organizational matters at the regional and national levels as well. She had a strong interest in collective bargaining.

Scope and Content

Professor Kalmar brought these papers to the University Archives in July 2008. They were well-organized, so little needed to be done to prepare them for use. The current arrangement closely follows Professor Kalmar's original order.

Most of this collection relates to AAUP matters at the state and national levels. But it has direct relevance to the University of Northern Iowa, because of Professor Kalmar's particular interest in collective bargaining. Professor Kalmar used information that she gathered at national meetings when she helped to prepare faculty positions at UNI collective bargaining sessions. Some files include Professor Kalmar's handwritten notes.

Researchers who are interested in collective bargaining at UNI will find value in using this collection in conjunction with the papers of United Faculty.
