William E. Morgan (1909-2005) served as president of Colorado Agricultural and Mechanical College/Colorado State University from 1949 to 1969. During his tenure, the school evolved from a small agricultural college to a state university, and Morgan served both the university and on outside boards and agencies. His collection documents both university and outside service, and it consists of paper-based files, photographs, VHS tapes, slides, awards, and other artifacts. This digital collection, with materials dated 1974 to 1975, includes two videos of presentations in which Morgan talks about the development of CSU’s campus, plus an oral history transcript that covers his life and his time at CSU.
