Floyd W. Reeves: Innovative Educator and Distinguished Practitioner of the Art of Public Administration
Reeves' principle illustrative contributions to education include: surveys of numerous colleges and universities such as the self-survey of the University of Chicago, another survey that formed the basis for the creation of the University of the State of New York; the President's (FDR's) Advisory Committee on Education, which greatly expanded the role of the federal government on all aspects of education; and the adoption by the Central Association of Colleges and Schools, which created more realistic and functional criteria for evaluating colleges and universities. Illustrative contributions to governmental (public) administration involved work with several New Deal agencies, the President's Committee on Administrative Management and Civil Service Reform, and research director for the Committee on the Demobilization of Military and Civilian Personnel.
