Dixon was a Duke University administrator from the 1970s through the early 1990s, holding the positions of Associate University Controller, Controller and Co-director of Human Resources, Associate Vice President for Administrative Services, and Vice President for Administrative Services (1989-1993). The Thomas E.

Also represented are committees with which Dixon was involved, including the President's Advisory Committee on Resources, the Safety Task Force, and the Committee on Social Implications of Duke's Investment Policy. Other materials include minutes of several committees of the Duke University Board of Trustees and a variety of reports, plans, and blueprints about the construction and opening of the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club in 1980s.

Collection Overview

The Thomas E. Dixon Papers, 1967-1993, comprise correspondence, memoranda, reports, meeting agendas and minutes, and other materials that document Thomas Dixon's tenure as Vice President for Administrative Services and other positions he held at Duke University from the late 1970s through the early 1990s. Records primarily consist of subject files pertaining to operations of non-academic divisions of the university, including Auxiliary Services, the Facilities Management Department, the Office of Human Resources, and the Telecommunications Division (Tel-Com). Several committees on which Dixon served or interacted with are represented, including the President's Advisory Committee on Resources, the Safety Task Force, and the Committee on Social Implications of Duke's Investment Policy, the last-named of which, among other issues, investigated corporate divestiture in South Africa in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Other prominent groups of materials in the collection include minutes of several committees of the Duke University Board of Trustees (see Restrictions) and a variety of correspondence, meetings, and reports that document the planning and building of the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club, opened in 1988. Numerous blueprints appear in the Washington Duke folder group, as well as in other subject files in the collection.

Arranged as received, with the exception that all Board of Trustees files have been transferred to Box 1.
