|System of Arrangement|
The original accession date of this collection is unknown and various items have been added gradually.
The Office of Development at Augustana College creates capital campaigns and fundraising strategies in order to raise money to improve and develop the Augustana campus and facilities. While fundraising took place throughout the history of the college, the development office was officially established during the C.W. Sorensen. In 1962, Roger Peterson was named the first director of development.
John Kindschuh was the former Vice-President for Planning and Advancement.
|SCOPE AND CONTENT|
This collection contains materials relating to the Office of Development at Augustana College dating from 1928-2012 and measures 13.5 linear inches. It contains newsletters, progress reports, mailings, news clippings, press releases, building proposals, invitations, brochures, and pamphlets dealing with several fundraising campaign strategies dating back to the early 1900s.
