dc.description.abstract This thesis has traced the history and chronological development of the academic Department of Natural Resources at Ball State University by researching printed matter concerning the department and by conducting interviews with the people concerned.The history included recent happenings within the department, i.e., course offering implementations, and dates of the movement from program (1967) to institute (1970) to department (1974). It also included the past history of Ball State Teachers College (which became the present Ball State University) and early interest in natural resources courses first offered in 1919. Of particular interest was the research on the Natural Resources Advisory Committee which met from 1965 to 1973 and which formulated the early aspects of the natural resources program and developed them into the present department.The development of the department was researched using personal and written interviews and was basically an assessment of the progress of the present department. Comments were obtained from Natural Resources Advisory Committee members, past and present faculty, graduates of the department and employees of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. The consensus of opinion was that the creation of the department was due to the hard work and dedication of its present chairman, Dr. Clyde Hibbs.
