Biographical Note

Richard Glenn Gettell, economist and college and university teacher and administrator, was born on March 3, 1912 in Hartford, Connecticut to Raymond Garfield Gettell, a political scientist and teacher, and Nelene Groff Knapp Gettell. The Gettells moved to Amherst, Massachusetts in 1914 and to Berkeley, California in 1923. He attended elementary and secondary schools in Amherst and Garfield Junior High School in Berkeley then went to University High School in Oakland, California from 1924-1927. He joined the Merchant Marine and served on three voyages to the South Seas, Australia, and Hawaii in 1927-1928. He attended Deerfield Academy in Deerfield, Massachusetts in 1928-1929 and Amherst College from 1929-1933. At Amherst he sang in choirs, served as president of the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity and manager of the freshman football team, participated in the debating society and graduated with high honors in economics. He also took classes at the University of California in Berkeley during the summer of 1932. After working as Executive Secretary of the Amherst Club of New York, N.Y. from July-December 1933, he went to Washington D.C. as the personal assistant to one of his former Amherst professors, Willard L. Thorp, who was Special Economic Adviser to the United States Department of Commerce. From 1933-1935 Gettell was a junior economist or special assistant in the Bureau for Foreign and Domestic Commerce and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. He attended the University of California at Berkeley from 1935-1937 and received a Ph.D. in economics in 1940. In 1938, Gettell became an instructor and tutor of economics and a research assistant at Harvard University. Concurrently he was an instructor of economics at Wellesley College. He married his first wife Eunice Burdick on September 10, 1938. He was an instructor and assistant professor of economics at Yale University from 1938-1941, when Yale granted him a leave of absence to work as an economist for the Textile Price Branch of the Office of Price Administration in Washington D.C. He was in charge of rationing shoes and industrial rubber footwear during World War II. In 1943 Gettell became an operations analyst for the United States Army Air Force. He served with combat commands in England, Washington D.C., and Guam and was a special consultant to the operations analysis division of the United States Air Force headquarters from 1945-1960. During the Korean War (1951-1953) he served for six months with the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the Weapons Evaluation Group.

Gettell began working for Time, Inc. in December, 1945. He was chief staff economist and assistant to the publisher of Fortune magazine from 1945-1950 and chief staff economist from 1950-1953. He also was a lecturer in economics at the Columbia University School of Business Administration in 1947-1948. He divorced his first wife in 1946 and married Landonia Brock Richards on June 9, 1948. Gettell became chief foreign economist for The Texas Company in December, 1953. He also served as a consultant to the White House staff and was a member of the Task Force of the Cabinet Committee on Energy Resources and Supplies in the Office of Defense Management. In 1954 he played a major role in preparing President Eisenhower's policy statement to Congress concerning foreign economic development. In addition Gettell was Rapporteur for and a member of the United States Council of the International Chamber of Commerce from 1954-1957.

Gettell became the thirteenth President of Mount Holyoke College in 1957. He launched an ambitious fund-raising effort that culminated in the Fund for the Future capital campaign during the College's celebration of its one hundred twenty-fifth anniversary in 1962. Most of these funds went to increasing faculty salaries, doubling the endowment, and constructing the Prospect, 1837, Ham, and MacGregor Hall dormitories, the Pattie J. Groves Health Center, the Psychology and Education Building, Alice Withington Rooke Laboratory Theatre, Eliot House (the center for religious life on campus), and an outdoor amphitheater. He also oversaw the renovation of several existing buildings including Williston Memorial Library. Increasing numbers of African-American and Latina students were admitted to Mount Holyoke during Gettells administration and he supported the ABC (A Better Chance) Program which encouraged minority girls to go to college. He also helped develop a student exchange program with Bennett College and approved Mount Holyoke's participation in the United States-India Women's College Exchange Program for faculty and staff. He was one of the founding trustees of Hampshire College and served as an active member of the boards of numerous other organizations including the College of the Virgin Islands. He received honorary degrees from Amherst College in 1957 and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 1962. Mount Holyoke awarded him an honorary degree in 1970 and named the amphitheater in his honor. Gettell was uncomfortable with the desire of many students to abolish Mount Holyoke's long-standing chapel attendance requirement and liberalize social regulations such as those concerning alcohol use and parietals (the policy for allowing men in dormitory rooms). He announced his decision to resign as President in September of 1967 and left office on November 11, 1968. He served as a consultant to the Haas Community Funds in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1969-1970, then retired and returned to live in California where he died in Menlo Park on August 14, 1988 at the age of seventy-six.

Gettell established this committee in 1962 to develop a "statement of sensible principles in regard to the social regulations" for Mount Holyoke students. Members of the committee from the College community were trustees Robert E. Barrett Jr. and Eleanor Greene Rogers (Class of 1924); philosophy professor Roger W. Holmes; Margery S. Foster, the Secretary of the College; Leta Kirk Rymer, Assistant Academic Dean; Ruth W. Yerrall, a staff member in the Scholarship Office and Head Resident of Pearsons Hall; and students Anne O. Eastman (Class of 1963), Jeane Stewart (Class of 1964), and Ann E. Zelle (Class of 1965). Other Mount Holyoke administrators, an alumna named Ruth Vars (Class of 1961), a practicing psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, and guest speakers from Amherst, Barnard, Oberlin, Radcliffe, and Smith Colleges also participated in some meetings of the committee.

The records consist of minutes and agenda correspondence (including a letter from 1961 to Mount Holyoke's Dean of Residence about social regulations at Dartmouth College), questionnaires, student opinions and questions, statements by committee members, and reports.

Topics discussed by committee members include the Mount Holyoke Honor Code; the role of social regulations in a residential college for women and the amount of responsibility that the College should assume for the behavior of students; the relation between these regulations and the quality of academic work; premarital sexual relations and the use of birth control by students; and possible improvements to campus facilities used by students for social purposes.

This program was established in 1963 by eleven women's colleges in the United States with the financial support of the United States Department of State and the Danforth Foundation. The purposes of the program, which focused on the exchange of faculty and staff members at women's colleges in each country, were to increase mutual understanding of the people and cultures of each country and "develop bonds of friendship and continuing institutional relationships" among these schools. Mount Holyoke joined the program in October of 1963 and ended its participation in February, 1968. Lorraine Benner, Director of the Gorse Child Study Center and Associate Professor of Psychology and Education, participated in the program by spending her sabbatical year, 1964-1965, at Women's Christian College in Madras, India. Principals and presidents of several women's colleges in India visited Mount Holyoke between 1965-1967. Fatima Sheja'at, a sociologist from Osmania University College for women, was a Visiting Lecturer in the Economics and Sociology Department during the second semester of the 1965-1966 academic year.

These records consist of a proposal to the Danforth Foundation and a "Statement of Policy and Procedures" that describe the goals and administration of this program, minutes and agenda, correspondence, memoranda, reports, financial records, schedules, brochures, articles, applications, letters of recommendation, and the contract for Benner's work. The materials document the activities of the program and the experiences of participants.
