This collection consists chiefly of a set of subject files on organizations, university offices and departments, special projects, and administrative topics compiled by Drexel president William S. Gaither. The collection also contains a record of Dr. Gaither's outgoing correspondence from June 1984 to December 1986 and a box of certificates presented to him at his inauguration.
Drexel's ninth president, William Samuel Gaither (b. 1932), received a Ph. D. in civil engineering and in 1970 became dean of the College of Marine Studies at the University of Delaware. He served as president for three years before resigning in October of 1987, after being accused of sexual harassment in April and receiving a vote of no confidence from the Board of Trustees in July.
