Description: Typewritten, handwritten and mimeographed correspondence of the Committee on Classification of Colleges of the Association of American universities kept by Committee Chairman Kendric C. Babcock (1864-1932), Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (1913-31), relating to undergraduate enrollment and percentage of graduates pursuing further study, graduate enrollment, class size, curricula, faculty degrees and hours of instruction, salaries and resources and income. The Committee recommended modifications of the "Accepted List of Colleges" for approval by the Association. The List was originally prepared by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and approved by the Association. Membership in the Association was confined to institutions emphasizing graduate work (cf. letter to Olivet Colleges, 12.28.18). In 1918, there were 24 members of the Association and the "Accepted List" included 138 institutions.
