This Series contains personal and professional papers, (1936-1982), of Neil C. Aslin, Professor of Educational Administration at the University of Missouri-Columbia. The records consist of correspondence, memoranda, speeches, news clippings, forms, publications, and audio tapes. The records pertain to Aslin's academic and professional career at the University of Missouri. Some of the records, especially the correspondence, also touch on Aslin's professional career as a school administrator. A smaller portion of the records in this Series were created by James L. King who studied under Aslin at MU and wrote his Doctor of Education dissertation on Aslin, (1979). These records were produced and gathered by King during the research for his dissertation. There are audio cassette tapes in this Series that contain research interviews done by King with, among others, Herbert Schooling, John Rufi, and Robert Woods.
(3 c.f., 049938, 049939, 049940)
Note to Researcher: Series 5 contains records which are confidential and restricted. See the restrictions note at the end of this finding aid.
Neil C. Aslin received a Masters of Education, (1941), and a Doctorate in Education, (1952), from the University of Missouri. He served as principal at Hickman High School in Columbia from 1944 until 1947 and as superintendent of the Columbia public schools from 1946 until 1962. Aslin was appointed Professor of Education at the University of Missouri in 1962, a position he held until his death in 1976.
Note to Archivist: The box lists for this Series are available online. They can be accessed by
following this link.
The fact that Aslin's papers were used by James King in preparing his dissertation makes the original order of the papers ambiguous. Furthermore, there are a number of records for which provenance is also difficult to determine, as they may have been introduced into the papers by King's research process. An attempt has been made to separate King's papers into Box 3. See the box lists for additional information.

Restrictions Note: The Archives of the University of Missouri-Columbia is required by law and Board of Curator's policy to restrict access to some files and information. Student records are held as confidential under the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 and by University policy. Faculty promotion and tenure records and Academic Personnel files are restricted for 75 years, or the lifetime of the individual. All grievance, disciplinary, and medical records are treated as confidential files. Consultations with legal counsel, both in-house and external, are protected by the attorney/client privilege and will not be released.
