Abstract In 1965, under Chancellor Paul Sharp's reorganization of the campus administrative structure, a vice chancellorship for advanced studies and research was created with responsibility for all graduate studies and research activities. The new position was assumed by Professor of Physics Everett D. Palmatier. In 1967, however, the position lapsed; and its responsibilities were reassigned. Records include correspondence and other files relating to the various research centers and institutes of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill during the mid-1960s: the Computation Center, the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Center, the Health Facilities Research Center, the Institute for Community Development, the Institute for Environmental Health Studies, the Institute of Marine Sciences, the Institute of Natural Science, the Institute for Research in Social Science, the Institute of State Programming for the Seventies, the Materials Research Center, the Regional Education Laboratory, the Research Laboratories of Anthropology, and the Speech and Hearing Center.
