Project: University of Kentucky Oral History Project

Interview Summary

In this interview A.D. Albright continues discussing his publication on the administrative and structural organization of universities in Belgium. He describes some differences and similarities between institutions of higher-learning in Belgium and in the United States. Albright then talks about Dr. Otis Singletary's administration as the president of the University of Kentucky. He states that he never truly understood Singletary's vision of the future of UK. He talks about Don Clapp's relationship with Singletary. Clapp took care of the budget for the university and may not have been completely honest with Singletary about the fiscal situation of the institution. Albright also mentions John Stephenson, the dean of Undergraduate Studies, who later became president of Berea College. Albright explains how John Oswald's attempts to expand the University of Kentucky's goals and student population to encompass the entire Commonwealth of Kentucky caused animosity among the local communities that had regional universities which continued throughout the Singletary administration.
