Historical NoteReturn to Top

The University of Oregon was created by an act of the Oregon Legislature in 1872. In 1876, the Legislature passed an act to "Provide for the Support and Government of the University of Oregon." Section 2 of that act vested the government of the University in a nine-person Board of Regents. In 1929, the Legislature established the State Department of Higher Education and invested it with the power previously held by the individual Boards of Regents at all Oregon universities. Some of the functions of the Board may have continued on within the Board of Directors and the Board of Trustees, whose minutes, correspondence and memos of 1938-1963 are also included.
