Duke University's Office of Publications centralized the task of producing printed materials for campus offices, schools, and other groups. The collection contains correspondence and drafts related to the production of two promotional university booklets: a proposed update to “A Short History (of Duke),” and “Duke Encounters,” a collection of reminiscences about Duke University that was published in 1977. Both booklets were produced under Dr. Elizabeth H. (Betsy) Locke, Editor of the Office of Publications. The collection also contains pamphlets, letterhead, brochures, magazines, cards, booklets, and other types of printed materials produced by the Office of Publications for various campus organizations and academic departments. This collection contains numerous variations of official Duke insignia, emblems, letterhead, and other graphics.
