Describes collections of the University Archives and Special Collections and how to use them.

Breakthrough to the Foundations

The Cal State Associates Foundation is just one of Fred’s innovative methods of improving the art of Higher Education at California State University, East Bay. He also introduced a divided system of essay checking wherein there would be a dedicated staff who would grade work on a purely grammatical basis (guaranteed 48 hour turn-around) so that the professors would not have to check for spelling errors and instead focus on the content of the work alone. Throughout his career as President of the University, Fred has an unwavering dedication to the improvement of education.
