Main Entry: Development Office
The Office of Development and Alumni was created in 1961 by Capt.
William R. Brewster. M.C. Paget was the first director (1961-1968)
and Bob Ballentine was the first Public Relations Director in
the 1960s, when he initiated the publications. The Office has
been responsible for Alumni affairs, publications, annual giving,
and other organized fundraising efforts, such as Capital Campaigns.
Over decades the office underwent a number of reorganizations
with numerous directors, systems, and programs. John Anderson
became Vice President for Development in 1990. The Annual Giving
program became more organized, better publicized, and more aggressive
under Anderson after 1990. By 2000, the successful Annual Giving
program was raising over one million dollars.
