Overview: T. R. McConnell was Chancellor of the University of Buffalo from 1950-1954. In this interview he speaks at length, and often philosophically, about his experiences while at the University. As the interview begins he identifies the particular problems he faced as an incoming chancellor, includ:ing the strengths and weaknesses of the University at that time and those goals he perceived as most important to the future development of the University. Dr. McConnell then discusses the general administrative structure of the University of Buffalo and the relationship of the University to the community. Specific instances are also mentioned during this interview but are scattered within the broader discussion of the University's functions and goals.
