Biographical/Historical Sketch

On October 3, 1974, the University announced the formation of the Presidential Commission on University Budget Priorities. Six task forces were set up to deal with six broad areas of concern: administration and support services, student support services and activities, academic calendar and utilization of the academic plant, professorial rank and faculty development, sponsored research volume, and professional schools and the operating budget. Professors John Linvill, Benjamin Page, Henry Breitrose, Konrad Krauskopf, David Montgomery, and Daniel Bershader headed the task forces.
