#ChesnuttArchives: Rudolph Jones Scrapbooks Now Digitized and Viewable via DigitalNC (5.30.2014)

Dr. Rudolph Jones scrapbooks can now be viewed via NC Digital Heritage. FSU Archivist, Craig Tuttle, University Archivist, wrote the metadata presently being used to facilitate their retrieval.

Dr Jones’ scrapbooks go back to the late 1930s, before he came to FSU. I cannot say with absolute certainty, but based on the information [that we have] and records, it would appear that Seabrook brought [Dr. Jones] in with the intention of Jones becoming his replacement.

In 1956, Dr. Jones, who had been serving as the school’s dean, succeeded Dr. Seabrook as President. During Dr. Jones’ administration, the curriculum was expanded to include majors in secondary education and programs leading to degrees outside the teaching field. The name of the school was changed to Fayetteville State College in 1963. Also, under Dr. Jones’ leadership, six additions were made to the physical plant to accommodate a rapidly expanding enrollment. Dr. Jones was the sixth president of what is now Fayetteville State University.
