Friend began his academic career at the State University of New York at Buffalo as assistant professor and then professor of history; he was Faculty Advisor from 1968-1969 and Executive Assistant to the President, 1969-1970.

In 1973 he was selected as the 11th President of Swarthmore College, and served until he resigned in 1982. While at Swarthmore, Friend established an Advisory Council on Resource Use, and led the faculty in a careful evaluation of the Honors Program.

Ser.5 Presseisen v. Swarthmore College case files.

Scope and Contents

Barbara Presseisen was hired by Swarthmore College as a Lecturer in the Education Program in September 1970, but was not reappointed for the 1972-1973 academic year. Alleging that the renewal was based solely on her sex, Presseisen filed a violation of her rights under Title VII of the Civil Rights act of 1964. A class action was added and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) joined in 1976. At the trial, held in 1977, the court ruled in favor of the defendant, Swarthmore College. Presseisen and the EEOC appealed the decision in 1978, but the appellate court affirmed the lower court's decision.

This series consists of records relating to the case accumulated by Theodore Friend in his role as Swarthmore College President. Included are copies of formal legal documents, such as legal briefs and memoranda, as well as less official matter, such as correspondence with Swarthmore staff and lawyers, handwritten notes, and other trial preparatory materials. There are a few newspaper clippings about the case, including a special student publication entitled The Presseisen Profile, dated April 22, 1977.
