This Record Sub-Group contains records concerning the Association of American Universities (AAU), 1947-1952. The University of Missouri-Columbia (UMC) has been a member of AAU since 1908. Member institutions are represented in the AAU by their chief executive officer; therefore, Frederick A. Middlebush, as UMC president during this time period, participated directly with AAU.

Many materials included in this Sub-Group are correspondence to and from various university presidents and association representatives of the AAU concerning committees, rules, committee appointments, regulations, council meetings, convention agendas, adopted resolutions, and resolution distribution. In addition to the correspondence are committee reports, news releases/announcements, statements and testimonies before committees, and other AAU documentation.
