Abstract

This collection houses newspaper articles and news releases documenting the University of Tennessee Air Force ROTC from 1973 to 1976.

Biographical/Historical Note

Professor Albert Miller Lea formed an Infantry Company at the university. The 1867 Land-Grant College Act required military tactics to be taught, and the University of Tennessee was made the state’s land-grant institution. In 1916, the National Defense Act formally made this organization into an ROTC unit. Air Corps training was instituted after World War II, in 1946. By 1949, Army ROTC and Air Force ROTC were separated into individual programs.

Arrangement

Collection consists of a single folder.

Acquisition Note

Collection was transferred to University Archives by the University Historian in 1991.
