University of Miami Presidential Papers (University of Miami)

The University of Miami, Office of the President Records contains the administrative records of the Office of the President from the formation of the University in 1926 to the present day. These files document the activities and operations of the chief officer of the University. They include correspondence, memoranda, reports, minutes, agendas, clippings, photographs, publications and other materials created and compiled by the Office of the President. The records reflect the internal university responsibilities and the external federal, state, and local responsibilities assigned to the President's Office. The University of Miami has been actively involved in South Florida activities and developments from the early 1920s to date. The University and its first President, Bowman Foster Ashe, were early supporters of the efforts to establish the Everglades National Park. The files include documentation of activities and extensive correspondence with Ernest F. Coe of the Tropic Everglades Park Association. Coe relied heavily on Ashe's support and advice in the years of work prior to the establishment of the park.
