Project: University of Kentucky Oral History Project

Interview Summary

In this interview, A.D. Albright discusses attempts to shed UK's reputation as an institute of higher learning for only central Kentucky. He also describes the search for a new university president in 1963, and talks about the need to get some "new blood" into the institution. Although an important administrative official at UK, Albright states that he never felt a compulsion to be the president of the University of Kentucky. Albright describes the poor reputation that post secondary education had in the South and UK's attempts to overcome this reputation. He discusses the UK Board of Trustees and the relationship between the faculty and the board. Albright also talks about the Frank Peterson controversy which involved politicians and a missing $20,000. He mentions rising tuition and fees and the need for further state support.
