In 1962, the State University Construction Fund was established by the Governor and the Legislature of New York as a public benefit corporation within the State University to plan, design, construct and provide financing for facilities required by the State University of New York to meet academic program and enrollment needs. As a result of the creation of the fund and in response to an urgent need to make higher education opportunities available to additional thousands of New Yorkers, the largest university building program in history was launched in New York State. (The State University Construction Fund, Annual Report 1979, (New York: New York State University Fund, 1980).)

The collection contains campus plans for the State University of New York (SUNY) System construction in the 1960s and 1970s. Progress reports and charts in each report include the dates that architects, sketches and locations for construction were approved. The charts also provide the dates construction began for each campus in the SUNY System. The collection includes annual reports from 1964 through 1979. These provide the budget for construction and the yearly progress for each facility. The annual report for the year 1972 celebrates the first ten years of the State University Construction Fund and includes helpful retrospective information. A review of the capital program for all state universities from 1975 to 1976 and 1976 to 1977 is included in the collection and reviews of the Albany campus are available from 1971 through 1975. The article Billion Dollar Client published in the July/ August 1968 issue of Architectural Forum is also included in the collection and discusses New York's major construction project and its progress. The majority of the collection is booklets published annually to demonstrate the Construction Fund's progress. The collection consists entirely of published material.

The collection is organized into 2 small file series.

All items in this manuscript group were donated to the University Libraries, M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections and Archives.
