The Mathematics Department at Duke University has sponsored several special programs to train high school and college math teachers. Two of these programs were the Summer Institute in Science and Mathematics and the Retired Officer Program. The Summer Institute in Science and Mathematics, supported by the National Science Foundation, helped secondary school teachers upgrade their skills in the sciences and in math. The Summer Institute trained teachers from 1957-1970. The Retired Officer Program trained retired military personnel to teach mathematics in high school or at the introductory college level. It was also supported by the National Science Foundation and trained teachers from 1958-1967. The collection contains yearbooks, program records, course lists, photographs, government reports, and information about these special programs. English.

The Mathematics Department Special Programs Records contain yearbooks, program records, course lists, photographs, government reports, and information about the Summer Institute in Science and Mathematics and the Retired Officer Program. An effort has been made to remove application letters, rejections letters, requests for information, receipts, and grades from the collection. Because many of these items are interspersed in the yearbooks and program records, some of these items may still remain and are covered by access restrictions.
