Interview with A. D. Albright, December 12, 1989

Project: A.D. Albright Oral History Project

Interview Summary

A.D. Albright describes his short "retirement" upon leaving the presidency of Northern Kentucky University. He states that although he had the opportunity to go to England, he chose not to at that time and instead moved back to Lexington where he served as an educational consultant to the mayor. Albright describes Mayor Scotty Baesler and their relationship. He discusses his transition to this different kind of pace.

Albright then moves to his involvement with Morehead State University. Morehead's president, Morris Norfleet, asked for Albright's help with some problems at the university and Albright went to Morehead to investigate. Albright states that he wrote a report which recommended, among other things, cutting some of the master degree programs. Albright recalls that the report caused some controversy, but further problems were caused when Norfleet began making changes to the university without consulting other administrators. After a new board of trustees was appointed by Governor Martha Layne Collins, the new board recommended him as the new president. Albright describes the negotiations that led to his agreement to take over as the new president of the university.
