MEMORIAL TO EVERETT ROBERT PETERS, SR.
Mr. Swain presented the following:
On July 19, the Board of Trustees noted with sorrow the death, on June 25, of Everett Robert Peters, Sr., retired State Senator from St. Joseph. The Board now formally records this tribute to his memory.
Senator Peters' career in public service, spanning fifty years and involving leadership responsibilities in important legislative committees, has been chronicled by others. His contributions to the Universty of Illinois, however, deserve special recognition by this Board.
On the occasion of his retirement, the Trustees recognized the breadth of vision that marked his support of the University in the context of its responsibilities to the State as a whole. Because of this vision, his contributions to the University enhanced the public service of the state of Illinois and benefited thousands of people who did not know him.
The resources that made possible the remarkable growth and advancement of the University since World War II, and the further development of the two Chicago campuses, were appropriated by the Illinois legislature in large part as a result of the efforts of Senator Peters. These accomplishments will serve as a memorial to the deep affection and esteem in which he held the University.
In gratitude for the contributions of an outstanding public servant and with warm regard for a dedicated friend of the University, the Trustees direct that this tribute be included as a memorial in the minutes of today's meeting and that suitable copies be sent to Senator Peters' family.
This memorial was adopted by a standing vote.
MINUTES APPROVEDThe Secretary presented for approval the press proofs of the minutes of the Board of Trustees meetings of October 20, 1971, and November 19, 1971, copies of which had previously been sent to the Board.
