Scope and Contents
The George B. Eager Collection fills only one folder and spans less than one year, 1933. As the first letter indicates, Mr. Eager solicited alumni to write to the Rector and Visitors of the University endorsing the appointment of John L. Newcomb as President. The rest of the collection is mostly letters from alumni endorsing Dr. Newcomb. Correspondence and clippings at the end of the file indicate that Mr. Eager was successful.
Majority of material found within 1933-1936
