Carter be appointed Acting Vice President for Administration, effective January 5, 1987, and stated that the recommendation was being made because he had received a letter of resignation from Mr. James 0.

C. where he will join the staff of Senator Wendell H. Ford as Staff Director to the U.S. Senate Committee on Rules and Administration. President Singletary commended Mr. King for his superb job as Vice President for Administration and praised his ability to deal in an open relationship with the chancellors.

President Singletary then stated that the University is fortunate to have someone on board to step in and assume the duties of Vice President for Administration.

He said that Mr. Carter has generously agreed to serve on an acting basis and praised his administrative service to the University. Mr. McCowan added his thanks for the services of Mr. King and his appreciation that Mr. Carter will be able to step into the position.
