Main Entry: Development Office
Volume: 19 Items 

Biographical/Historical Note: 
          Beginning in the mid-1960s, with the increased public relations activities of the Development Office and the Alumni Association, the Development Office became the repository and for a number of scrapbooks chronicling the widely published activities of the school, especially in the local newspapers.  

Scope and Content: 
          Arranged in chronological order, this collection is composed of nineteen scrapbooks covering school years 1964-1973, 1975-1976, 1978-1980, and 1986-1987 (some years with multiple scrapbooks).  The scrapbooks vary in size, but most are collections of newspaper clippings from local papers.  Although sports predominate (especially football), the clippings cover nearly all activities of the school which were covered by the newspapers, even including an occasional wedding.  Compilers of thirteen scrapbooks are unknown, while three were compiled by the Library Club, two by the Development and Alumni Office, and one by a Busey School Committee.  One 1972-1973 scrapbook concerns exclusively the members and activities of the National Honor Society.
