Biographical Sketch

Organized under the Chancellor's Division to handle news and information for the Texas Tech University system, the Office of News and Publications was the central clearinghouse for publications produced for the system. It was also responsible for placing stories and sources in the state and national media and for bringing more prominence to the system. The Office of News and Publications was divided into several bureaus: news for the University; news for the Health Sciences Center; publications; video news releases; advertising campaigns and various publications; and photographic services.

This department has gone by several different names over the decades - Public Information, Information Services, University News and Publications, and most recently the Office of Communications and Marketing.

The collection consists of press releases concerning Texas Tech university and its faculty. The collection also includes 1,557 slides. Press releases from the 1977-1978 academic year were found after the collection was processed. They have been added in box 18.
