for the University of Kentucky.
I am recommending to you, therefore, that we express a
deep debt of gratitude to Dr. Chamberlain for his most ef-
fective work as an administrative officer of the University and
comply with his request that he be permitted to return to
teaching responsibilities effective July 1, 1962.
With the reassignment of Dr. Chamberlain, there must
be certain administrative changes for the University of Kentucky.
It is my feeling, and this belief is substantiated by the Self-
Study of the University and also by the Report of the Visiting
Committee of several years ago, that the President of the
University with such a myriad of details as come through his
office cannot give as complete and full attention to the academic
programs as might have been the case when the University was
less complex and a smaller institution. I am, therefore,
recommending that Dr. A.D. Albright, who has served so ably
as Provost of the University, be named as Executive Vice
President of the University, effective July 1, 1962, with the
understanding that his responsibilities will pertain primarily
to the co-ordination of instructional and academic affairs for
this institution. In addition, he would have primary responsi-
bility for research and professional personnel and the closely
allied academic components, such as the library, IBM, Computing
Center and others.
I am requesting that all deans of the various colleges
report to Dr. Albright and, in addition, he will assume other
responsibilities which will be defined more fully in the next
few months. This will leave a position vacant in our organi zi-
tional structure, namely, the Office of the Provost which it
would be my intention to fill some time in the near future.
I should like to have the privilege, however, of reviewing all
possibilities for this position and also determining the most
effective organizational pattern which could be developed for
the on-going program of the University,
It is with real confidence that I recommend Dr. Albright
to you for this position.
President Dickey stated that he desired to look further for replace-
ment of the position of Provost and wuld make a recommendation to
the Board in due time.
