Historical Sketch

The UTD ADVANCE Collection contains the issues of  UTD ADVANCE from the inception of The University of Texas at Dallas in 1969 until Summer 1985. It was actually first published under the title  ADVANCE in Spring 1964 as a quarterly publication to highlight the research and teaching activities of the Graduate Research Center of the Southwest (GRCSW)/Southwest Center for Advanced Studies (SCAS). It became the Center's external newsletter produced ten times a year beginning in April 1967 and then moved to five times a year in September 1968. As mentioned in the  Note to the Researcher, the issues from the GRCSW/SCAS era are found in Series III, Subseries 1 of the GRCSW/SCAS Collection.

With the establishment of The University of Texas at Dallas in September 1969, the newsletter continued being published five times a year, still under the title ADVANCE. On October 24, 1974, the format changed to a biweekly newspaper. It became a monthly newspaper in September 1977. Furthermore, the title changed to  UTD ADVANCE in October 1977 and became a bimonthly newspaper in February 1985. The Summer 1985 issue mentioned that  UTD ADVANCE would become a five time per year newspaper, but it is the last issue in the collection.

Scope and Content

This collection contains one folder of newsletters housed in a manuscript box that contains other UT Dallas publications plus one non-standard box of newspapers, all under the title ADVANCE or  UTD ADVANCE depending on the year.

The Archivist decided to divide the collection into two series. The first series is the Newsletter Format Series, which begins with the establishment of The University of Texas at Dallas in September 1969 and continues until June 1974.

The second series is the Newspaper Format Series, which begins when the publication became a newspaper on October 24, 1974, continuing until its final printing in Summer 1985. Series II. is arranged in two subseries: 1. ADVANCE and 2.  UTD ADVANCE.

Subseries 1. ADVANCE represents the title of the publication when it became a biweekly newspaper on October 24, 1974, therefore keeping the same title it had when it was a newsletter.

Subseries 2. UTD ADVANCE represents the title of the publication beginning in September 1977 and continuing until the last issue, which was Summer 1985.
