Biographical/Historical Note

Ronald E. Carrier began his career at James Madison University in 1971 when the institution was named Madison College.  He would continue on his service as President of JMU for twenty-seven years when he retired in 1998.  Before he became President of JMU he was the Vice President for Academic Affairs at Memphis State University.  Through out the course of his twenty-seven year service to JMU he became known for innovation and tenacity in promoting the institution.  During his presidency, Madison College grew from an institution holding 4,000 students, predominantly female and education majors, to a university with 14,000 students. The applications for admission also grew from 3,800 a year to 15,000 a year, while average SAT scores rose from 987 to 1,174.

 

The name of Madison College changed in 1977 to James Madison University, something that not everyone wanted to do at the time.  In October, the Board of Visitors went to the Virginia General Assembly with a name change proposal. A booklet titled “The Case for James Madison University” was printed in a controversial attempt, lobbied by Dr. Carrier and Dr. Ray Sonner, then the Vice President of Public Affairs, to receive a unanimous vote from the Virginia House and Senate. The bill passed through the Virginia House and Senate, and was then signed by Governor Mills Godwin Jr. The JMU community heralded the news and several places around campus were given name changes.

 

The increase of students and a new name were not the only changes to the institution during Dr. Carrier’s tenure.  His presidency expanded the grounds of JMU by more than 100 acres that included expanding the university to the other side of I-81. A total of 40 new buildings were added to the campus, valued at 210 million dollars. The expansion on the other side of I-81 coincided with the proposal of creating a new college of Integrated Science and Technology (CISAT). Dr. Carrier was able to purchase the land with aid from the state. He then supervised and established the new college, worked with staff to create the curriculum, and ensured it met the demands of an increasing technology job market.

 

Scope and Content

The Carrier Collection contains four separate series of administrative documents relating to the presidency and chancellorship of Ronald E. Carrier at James Madison University. The collection consists of five Hollinger Boxes and one half-Hollinger box. The first series, from a previously compiled collection, consists of miscellaneous university administrative files.  It contains many different papers from reports on various aspects of the university to goals and objectives of different university services.

The second series consists of correspondence to and from Dr. Carrier, mostly from his first few years as chancellor of the university, from 1997-1999, with the exception of one letter. These letters are about various subjects, from parents or people at James Madison asking Dr. Carrier questions to requests from various organizations asking Dr. Carrier to come and speak at a certain event. These letters are arranged alphabetically by the person who sent the letter or by the individual receiving the letter.  The third series consists of notes and written out speeches that Dr. Carrier gave at various events. These span thirty years, throughout his presidency. Many of the speeches are given to various organizations about education, and many others are given at commencement ceremonies.  These speeches are arranged by the date given.

The fourth series contains various miscellaneous materials. The material in these folders is arranged alphabetically by their name or title. The first folder contains speeches that were undated. The second folder contains speech material, which varies from vague notes to material from other speeches or articles. The third folder contains material related to the creation of the Edith J. Carrier Arboretum, which was named after Dr. Carrier’s wife. It has a program of the dedication, and a history of the arboretum. The fourth and fifth folders contain miscellaneous academic papers that mostly are about the “Arabs and Jews”. The sixth folder contains various booklets from events that Dr. Carrier attended. The seventh folder contains various articles about various education matters, as well as one on James Madison himself.

The collection is arranged in 4 series:
