Donovan, President University of Kentucky April 7, 1942 INTRODUCTION A year ago at the April meeting, the Board of Trustees adopted a new plan of organization for the administration of the University of Kentucky. At that same time you appoint- ed a new president and a comptroller and authorized the ap- pointment of a dean of the University. This position was filled in July by t he appointment of Dr. Henry H. hill. It has been a year cOnce my appointment, although I did not assume the duties of my office until July 1. The public immediately made demands upon my time and I actually began planning and thinking for my new work from the day of my appointment. The year has been an exceedingly busy one for me, but it has been pleasant and I hope it has been constructive for the University.
