Collection Overview

This collection contains correspondence, reference material, and notes on the local, state, and national organizations Richard L. Tuthill belonged to and/or interacted with, along with material concerning his non-Registrar-related activities at Duke University. These papers were separated from the records of the Office of the Registrar. For further information on Tuthill and his duties as Registrar, please see that collection. The bulk of this material centers on geography and education. Included are folders from the Association of American Geographers and the 1955 Conference on Teaching the Social Studies. Tuthill appears to have shown particular interest in the value of television as an educational tool. The collection ranges in date from 1946-1968.
