  • History of the Office | Office of the Chancellor | Vanderbilt University
    Peabody College had admitted two African Americans and unless the board wanted to break a long standing cooperative agreement with Peabody Vanderbilt would have to allow the students to take Vanderbilt classes A few meetings later Branscomb was back explaining that he was confronted with the case of a black minister from Jackson Tenn who wanted to take courses at the divinity school After all the chancellor said it would look bad to turn down a minister Then a little later the chancellor explained that because of a new position taken by the American Association of Law Schools Vanderbilt s law school might lose its accreditation if it didn t admit African Americans Later he explained that the university in general was in danger of losing foundation support if it did not admit more African Americans All the while Branscomb was subtly encouraging the Faculty Senate to vote overwhelmingly in favor of integration nudging student groups to speak out One of his allies was the editor of the Vanderbilt Hustler who campaigned for open admissions That editor was a student named Lamar Alexander who would later become governor of Tennessee and then U S Secretary of Education Branscomb is credited with transforming the selection process for nominees to the Board of Trust in order to attract leaders of national as well as local institutions He recruited Harold Stirling Vanderbilt great grandson of founder Cornelius Vanderbilt to membership on the board In an effort to recruit and retain distinguished scholars and scientists to the university s faculty Branscomb urged the board to reinforce the university s commitment to academic freedom raise faculty salaries and recruit distinguished faculty Despite the discord caused late in his administration by fallout from the expulsion for civil disobedience of black divinity student James Lawson by the end of his chancellorship Branscomb had guided Vanderbilt to an open admissions policy constructed vastly improved facilities and laid the foundation for a national reputation including election to the elite American Association of Universities in 1949 Branscomb retired in 1963 and the board named Alexander Heard 48 as chancellor Branscomb lived another 35 years dying on July 24 1998 at the age of 103 He maintained an office in Kirkland Hall until his death and until shortly before he died regularly attended university functions Alexander Heard 1963 1982 Before Alexander Heard was named chancellor in 1963 he was dean of the graduate school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and had made a name for himself as a brilliant political scientist Holding a B A from UNC and M A and Ph D degrees from Columbia he had written two books A Two Party South and The Costs of Democracy the latter having led to his being named by President John Kennedy to serve on the Commission on Campaign Costs Heard guided the Vanderbilt ship through some very troubled waters While he was at the helm unrest engulfed many campuses across the country at times leading to violence Early on Heard began holding quiet regular meetings with student leaders including some of the foremost campus radicals Consequently as far as activities on campus were concerned Vanderbilt witnessed peaceful demonstrations and Heard s defense of the open forum survived challenges from both ends of the political spectrum Another segment of the Heard legacy was his successful effort to place the first woman Mary Jane Werthan B A 29 M A 35 on the board He also convinced the board to create a new class of trustees four recent graduates to assure a youthful perspective would be heard by the board one of the first universities in the nation to do so Beginning in 1974 Heard laid careful plans to undertake a historic campaign for the university to raise 150 million From 1977 through 1981 he stumped for contributions by traveling 117 537 miles visiting 60 cities in 25 states When it was over the campaign had raised 180 million 30 million above the goal Some of those funds were designated to build a home for the growing graduate school of management The board had first discussed such a school during World War II and the idea had grown slowly With new funds available Heard was able to announce that work had begun on a 6 7 million building for the Owen Graduate School of Management named for two local benefactors Ralph and Lulu Owen Finally in 1979 after a challenging and difficult set of negotiations involving Heard and others Vanderbilt and Peabody College merged Two years later the Blair School of Music merged with Vanderbilt In 1983 the board recognized Heard s work in building the university community by naming the Vanderbilt library system for Heard and his wife Jean Heard had inherited a university with seven schools by the end of his tenure as chancellor in 1982 Vanderbilt s current complement of 10 schools was in place When Alexander Heard retired in 1982 the board named Joe B Wyatt to succeed him Joe B Wyatt 1982 2000 When Alexander Heard retired in 1982 the board named Joe B Wyatt to succeed him As chancellor Wyatt sought to place Vanderbilt in the very top tier of American universities Wyatt a Texan holds degrees in mathematics from Texas Christian University and the University of Texas He was vice president for administration at Harvard University and father of a Vanderbilt sophomore when he was selected as Vanderbilt s sixth chancellor As a computer scientist and executive he brought to the university his concept that information technology is a strategic resource of accelerating global importance in education research and patient care In addition to his influence in technology Wyatt pushed the university community to unprecedented levels of involvement in volunteer community service Alternative Spring Break was founded in 1987 by a handful of students with Wyatt s support It is currently the largest student run organization on campus sending over 400 students across the nation and abroad each March With funding
