The Truman Report

Event Date: 

David Truman is appointed head of a committee to scrutinize the CC sequence in 1958. After two years of investigation, the report is published in 1960. CC-A and CC-B, are found to have common problems, including staffing. The report praised CC-A for its "long record of success" but it suggested that CC-B be suspended, given increased specialization in the social sciences and student interest in studying in the specific departments.
