Department of Political Science.  Department of Political Science Newsletters, 1973-1985.  GACA Collection 210. 7 Folders.


ABSTRACT:

The Newsletters from the Political Science Department collection consists of typed newsletters put out by those heading the department.  Political Science majors and minors were to use the letters as a resource for upcoming classes, speakers, and events.  In addition, the publications helped students stay updated on happenings within the department and the politics of the day.  It appears to have been released weekly, but there are gaps in the collection, most significantly in the period from September 1981-April 1983.


HISTORICAL NOTE:

The Gustavus Adolphus College Political Science Department was established in 1969 by Ron Christenson (1969-1978).  Christenson, Don Ostrom (1972-2004), and Norm Walbek (1976-2001) aka the “founding fathers,” started out teaching only seven courses a year.  Originally, the department found home in the basement of Uhler Hall, but moved into the Schafer Fine Arts Building during the early 1970s.  The Political Science Department currently resides on the second floor of Old Main.
