Adams Is Second Highest 'U' Official

W,

By ARTHUR KRAFT

Dr. JamesP. Adams, recently ap-
pointed Provost of the University, is
a tall and affable man who brings to
his alma mater, Michigan, an im-
pressive record as an educator and
citizen.
As chief executive officer of the
University next to the president, Dr.
Adams' responsibilities relate to the
educational programs of the Univer-
sity-including teaching and research
-and the subdivisions by which they
are conducted, colleges, schools, li-
braries, museums and other agencies.
"It is my job," Dr. Adams said, "to be
of every possible assistance to the ad-
ministrative officers and to the gov-
erning faculties of the colleges and
schools in the carrying on of the im-
portant educational work upon which
they are engaged as a part of the
University."
According to the by-laws of the
University, the Provost exercises "ex-
ecutive responsibility, under the pres-
ident and the Board of Regents, for
the review of recommendations, with-
in available appropriations, of the
deans, directors, or other heads of
schools, colleges, and other educa-
tional units with respect to appoint-
ments, promotions, leaves of absence,
and salaries of members of the fac-

ulty and of special service personnel
whose appointment or other disposi-
tion has not been specifically dele-
gated to another University author-
ity."
Dr. Adams is also responsible for
"the conduct of special studies relat-
ed to educational programs of the
University" and serves as adviser to
the President and the Board of Re-
gents in regard to educational mat-
ters.
As Provost, Dr. Adams is also,
authorized to assume the duties and
powers of the President when Dr.
Ruthven is absent from the Univer-
sity.
Dr. Adams is a member and chair-
man of the Committee on Budget
Administration whose chief func-
tions are to present the annual bud-
get to the Board of Regents and to
review requests to amend the budget
before it is presented to the Board.
A native of Carson City, Dr. Adams
began his teaching career in 1919,
when studying for his Master of
Arts degree, he taught economics at
this University. After two years he
left to teach in the economics de-
partment at Brown University as an
assistant professor. Promotion came
rapidly and within six years he was
elevated to the rank of full professor
and a year later he assumed the

chairmanship of the department. In
1931, at the age of 36, Dr. Adams was
appointed Vice-President of Brown,
one of the nation's oldest universi-
ties. Dr. Adams was acting Presi-
dent of Brown for the fall term of
1937, the same year in which he re-
ceived his L.L.D.
