Documents relating to an attempt by state Teachers College educatorsÂ to oppose further budget reductions during the Great Depression. The teachers argued that after several years of reduced budgets enacted while enrollments had climbed, continued cuts made it difficult to maintain college standards. Despite the coordinated efforts of the System staff, in April 1939, Governor Julius Heil ordered a 10% reduction for the remainder of the school year. Contents include data and analysis, including one report entitled "Are the Teachers Colleges to be Crippled?" and two letters regarding the efforts.
