Résumé :

Letters and other papers relate to policies and activities of the Board of Visitors, mainly, 1894-1898 and 1906-1918, and deal with such topics as academic standards, administration, alumni, bond issues, buildings and grounds, the Carnegie Fund, the corporate limits of Charlottesville, curricula, donations, faculty salaries, medical education and practice, military education, scholarships, and World War I.

Persons mentioned include Edwin A. Alderman, Arthur Austin, James Cook Bardin, Paul B. Barringer, Philip Alexander Bruce, Thomas Henry Carter, John Armstrong Chaloner, Jabez Lamar Moore Curry, Armistead Mason Dobie, Francis Perry Dunnington, William Holding Echols, Daniel B. Fayerweather, Basil Lanneau Gildersleeve, Bennett Wood Green, Edward Wilson James, Robert Garlick Hill Kean, Charles William Kent, William Alexander Lambeth, William Minor Lile, Seth Low, William Gordon McCabe, John William Mallett, John Barbee Minor, Robert Walton Moore, Mary Cooke Branch Munford, James Morris Page, Rosewell Page, Oliver H.

Correspondents include Robert Lewis Dabney, Jedediah Hotchkiss, Thomas Staples Martin, and Thomas Nelson Page.

A letter, 1895 Nov. 26, from Robert M. Hughes discusses the Rotunda fire, comments tartly on previous fires and suggests the University establish a fire department. Hughes comments that "The superintendent [William H. Echols] during the fire, I understand, instead of taking charge and managing things according to some system, was chiefly engrossed in throwing dynamite at a structure that any engineer ought to have known would not be affected by it." Hughes concludes that the lack of a fire fighting unit at the University "is so surprising that it almost looks like imbecility."
