       B, Funds for Repair of Maxwell Place.

       President Donovan stated that Maxwell Place was put in a state of good
repair in 1941, that being the time when Dr. Frank L. McVey vacated Max-
well Place and the incumbent president moved in to occupy this lovely old
home,   Very little work has been done on Maxwell Place during the interven-
ing years and, consequently, it needs interior redecoration and some repair.
President Donovan recommended that the Executive Committee authorize
Maxwell Place put in a good state of preservation at this time before Doctor
and Mrs. Dickey move into the University' s home.

       Members of the Committee were quite sympathetic to this recommenda-
tion, and upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the funds necessary,
up to $15, 000, 00, were authorized used to repair, redecorate and equip Max-
well Place.

       C. Report on Progress of the Medical Center.

       President Donovan stated that the firm of Ellerhe and Company, con-
sultants for the construction of the Medical Center, had been furnished site
and elevation surveys, and one general meeting between the consultants, the
local architects and University administrators had been held on the campus.
Various other meetings had been held between Ellerbe and Company and 'iUi-
versity consultants, Doctor Lippard of Yale and Doctor Willard of Syracuse.
A meeting is scheduled between Ellerbe and Company, Meriwether and Marye,
local architects, Doctor Willard and University officials in Lexington on July

       Core investigation of sub-surface for foundation purposes has been
requested. The definitive plans for the teaching building of the Medical Cen-
ter will be completed by October and turned over to the local architect for


final plans and specifications. Similar information for the power plant and
laundry will be available soon thereafter.

       Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the information was
received and ordered placed of record.

       D. Report of Cooperstown, Holmes Hall and Shawneetown.

       Vice President Peterson reported that buildings D and E, to be known
as Noe House and -Allen House, fronting Woodland Avenue, have been complet-
ed and accepted by the University. Approximately 45 families are now liv-
ing in these buildings. Buildings F and G, to be known as Fox House, Grant
C. Knight House and Annie Fellows Johnston House, Cobb House, should be
completed by the first of August.  Buildings known on the site plan as A,
B and C, later to be known as the Theodore O'Hara House, Rice House, Rob-
erts House and Cawein House should be completed in September.  The con-
tractor has experienced some unavoidable delay due to a strike of the plumbers'
union, followed by a strike of the carpenters, union. The roadway around
the project, known as Huguelet Drive, is about two-thirds finished for curbs,
grading, rock and blacktop. The remaining part of Huguelet Drive has been
graded and is ready for rock and blacktop. The lawns facing Woodland Avenue
have been sodded.

       Contract for the construction of Holmes Hall was awarded to Gilson
Construction Company of Lexington in May.  The contract was signed in
June and the work order was issued in July.  Work began today on the site
for Holmes Hall.  We anticipate that progress on this building will now go
forward without further delay.

       The plans and specifications for apartment buildings, to be known as
Shawneetown Apartments, have been completed, received by the University
and placed in the hands of the personnel of the Department of Finance.

       The Department of Finance has been requested to ask for bids for the
construction of these buildings at an early date. The Loan Agreement be-
tween the University of Kentucky and the Housing and Home Finance Agency
of the Federal Government has been approved by both bodies and executed
by administrative officials representing the University and the Federal Gov-
e rnment.

       Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the information was or-
dered received and put to record.

       E. Doctor Willard Aupointed Vice President of the Medical Center and.
Dean of the College of Medicine.

       President Donovan stated that Dr. William R. Willard, Dean of the
Syracuse College of Medicine of the State University of New York, first visited
the campus of the University of Kentucky on April 8 and 9, 1956.  Several
guests had dinner with Doctor Willard and President Donovan at Maxwell Place
on the evening of April 8. Several others had breakfast there on the morning
of April 9, and a group of approximately 30 had luncheon with Doctor Willard


at the Student Union building on the 9th.

       During the first week of June, Doctor and Mrs. Willard visited the
University.  In July, Doctor Willard decided to accept the post offered but
requested that no formal action be taken until he was able- properly to ac-
quaint his colleagues of the Syracuse College of Medicine of the State Univer-
sity of New York.

       Doctor Donovan and Dean Dickey submitted the following brief bio-
graphical sketch of Dr. William R. Willard:

              Dr. William R. Willard, now 47 years of age, was born
      at Seattle, Washington, is married and has three children.  He
      received the degree of Bachelor of Science. from Yale University
      in 1931 and the M.D. degree from Yale in 1934. He interned at
      Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore in 1934-35, was assistant
      resident at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, New York, in
      1935-36, and received the degree of Doctor of Public Health from
      Yale in 1937.

              He was then appointed Deputy State Health Officer for
      Maryland and served some six years.  As a surgeon with the
      United States Public Health Service, 1944-46, he was in charge
      of malaria control in war areas and later served as Acting
      Director of the Public Health and Welfare Department of the Unit-
      ed States Military Government in Korea.

              Dr. Willard was appointed Assistant Professor of Public
      Health at the Yale School of Medicine in 1946, was promoted to
      Associate Professor in 1948 and to Professor in 1951.  From
      1948 to 1951 he served as Assistant Dean in charge of postgraduate
      medical education at Yale.     Since 1951 he has been Dean of
      the Syracuse College of Medicine of the State University of New

             He is a Fellow of the American Public Health Association,
      a member of the American Medical Association.  He has been
      very active in a variety of organizations including the Central New
      York Regional Hospital Council and the Handicapped Children, s
      Association,  He has had considerable experience working with the
      Veterans, Hospital at Syracuse and with Group Hospital Service
      (Blue Cross).  For three years he taught a course in community
      organization for health,  He is the author of a number of articles
      and reports.

             Dean Willard, s wide experience in both private and state
      medical schools, his splendid record, his attractive personality,
      and his deep interest in public health and the problems of improving
      health services to the people, as well as the splendid recommenda-
      tions we have received concerning him, would seem to assure that
      he is outstandingly qualified for the position of Vice President in
      Charge of the new Medical Center of the University, and Dean of the
      College of Medicine,



       President Donovan stated that the Board of Trustees, at its meeting
on May 28, established a Medical Center which includes a College of Medi-
cine, a College of Dentistry, a College of Nursing, and a University teaching
hospital. The Medical Center was authorized placed under the supervision
and direction of the Vice President (Medical Center) of the University.  The
Dean of the College of Medicine, the Dean of the College of Dentistry, a
Director of the School of Nursing, and the Hospital administrator were direct-
ed to report to the Vice President 'Medical Center). The Vice President
(Medical Center) was directed to report to the Vice President, Business Ad-
ministration, on all matters pertaining to business and finance and to the
President of the University on all other matters.

       President Donovan and Dean Dickey, President-elect, both recommend-
ed the appointment of Dr. William R. Willard, Vice President (Medical Cen-
ter) of the University and Dean of the College of Medicine, at a salary of
$20, 000 annually, effective as soon as Doctor Willard can come, preferably
August or September, 1956.

       It was further stated that Doctor Willard, s major duties at this time
would be to serve as a consultant to the architects on plans, specifications
and construction of the Center.

       Members of the Committee recalled that the appointment of Doctor Wil-
lard was informally discussed with the Board of Trustees at its meeting on
May 28, and at that meeting it was the unanimous opinion of the members of
the Board of Trustees, informally expressed, that Doctor Willard was most
admirably qualified through training and experience to head the Medical Cen-
ter at the University of Kentucky, and was the overwhelming choice of the
people that conferred with the four possible candidates.

       Upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, on recommendation of
President Donovan and Dean Dickey, President-elect, the appointment of Doctor
Willard at a salary of $20, 000 annually was unanimously approved, effective
as soon as Doctor Willard can report for duty.

       F. Site of Medical Center Discussed, and Request of St. Joseph
Hospital Co~n_;_ia er~eT.

       President Donovan reported that a group of individuals seemed to be
questioning the proper location of the site of the Medical Center. He stated
that the location of the Medical Center had received considerable discussion
and thought. The site finally selected was approved by Dean Lippard of Yale,
by Dean Willard of Syracuse, by representatives of Ellerbe and Company,
by the President and administrative officials of the University and by the Board
of Trustees. He stated that, since the question had been raised, hc thought
he should report to the Committee.

       Members of the Committee were explicit in stating that the question
of site for the Medical Center was settled by the Board of Trustees at its
meeting on April 3, 1956, and that no further action needed to be taken.



       President Donovan then reported that sorne individuals had visited him
with the request that the St. Joseph Hospital be permitted to secure a site near
the Medical Center for the erection of the new St. Joseph Hospital. Members
of the Committee felt that this question should be answered so as not to delay
the future progress of St. Joseph Hospital in the event there were some who
desired to hold up progress on the St. Joseph Hospital in the event there was
a possibility of changing the proposed location of the hospital to the Experi-
ment Station farm.  The Committee agreed and after a thorough discussion,
upon motion duly made, seconded and carried, the request for site on the
farm for the St. Joseph Hospital was denied, because the farm is dedicated
to University purposes and the University is not in a position to give, sell or
lease private interests sites for such purposes, The University welcomes
hospitals, doctors, office buildings and medical clinic buildings located near
the campus but does not feel that property should be diverted from Universi-
ty use,

       G. Purchase of 162 Shawnee Place,

       Vice President Peterson reported that the apartment house at 162 Shaw-
nee Place was available for purchase.  He stated that this apartment house is
located at the end of the street known as Shawnee Place and is adjacent to the
Shawneetown housing apartment site.  The lot has a front footage of 54. 5 feet
and a depth of 144. 3 feet, The south entrance is a little wider than the front
entrance. The east side and the south side of the lot are bounded by the
Shawneetown site,  Each apartment consists of a basement, first and
second floors, and includes two bedrooms,  Each apartment has its own fur-
nace and separate utility meters. President Donovan and Mr. Peterson
joined in recommending that this apartment house be purchased for the sum
of $18, 000.

       Members of the Committee discussed the cost of apartments and, be-
ing of the opinion that this house was strategically located, on motion duly
made, seconded and carried, the Vice President, Business Administration,
was authorized to proceed with the negotiation and consummate the purchase,
same to be paid for from the Haggin Fund,

       H. Award of Diplomas to Graduates at the Summer Commencement.

       President Donovan submitted list of graduates who will be recommend-
ed by the faculty for degrees at the summer commencement,  He stated that
the Faculty would meet August 1 to consider the list and recommended that
the Executive Committee approve the award of diplomas, subject to action
taken by the University Faculty August 1,
