record of accomplishment. The center will focus attention on basic research into advertising thought and practice in both national and international arenas. In addition, the center will serve as a clearinghouse for proposals from advertising agencies, advertisers, the media, and various service organizations. Projects selected for study will be handled by department faculty or by faculty in other departments at the Urbana campus or from other universities. As the endowment base expands, the center will offer positions as visiting center researchers to distinguished academics and practitioners. The center will not have any tenured faculty, nor offer degree programs. There are no additional staff or other resources required from State funds. The chancellor and the vice president for academic affairs concur with the senate recommendations. I recommend approval, subject to further action by the Illinois Board of Higher Education.
On motion of Dr. Bacon, this recommendation was approved. Designation of the Miles C Hartley Selections Garden, Urbana
(12) Simultaneously with the development of the South Farms Master Plan in 198990, a committee comprised of Urbana-Champaign faculty from the Colleges of Agriculture, Fine and Applied Arts, and Liberal Arts and Sciences, and from the Illinois Natural History Survey prepared a proposal for an arboretum and botanical garden to be developed on a site east of Lincoln Avenue and extending from the president's residence to Windsor Road. Following its endorsement by the chancellor as a long-term goal for campus development, the arboretum plan was incorporated with the South Campus Master Plan, approved by the trustees on September 13, 1990. On July 26, 1989, the University accepted a bequest from Dr. Miles C Hartley ". . . for the purpose of establishing and maintaining a flower garden on the Urbana Campus of said university, to have and to hold the same absolutely and forever." Miles C Hartley was born in Toulon, Illinois, on September 6, 1901. He was awarded five degrees by the University of Illinois, receiving an A.B. in General Curriculum in 1923; an A.M. in Science and Letters-Mathematics in 1924; a B.S. in Education in 1926; a Ph.D. in Mathematics in 1932; and a B.M. in Music in 1939. He was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. After receiving his Ph.D., Dr. Hartley served as head of the Department of Mathematics at University High School in Urbana for 16 years and then as a member of the University of Illinois faculty from 1948 until his retirement in 1962. From 1962 to 1972, he served as professor and chairman of the Department of Mathematics at the University of Tampa, Florida. He was the author of five books on mathematics. The design for the garden envisioned by Dr. Hartley was approved by the Board of Trustees' Buildings and Grounds Committee on May 14, 1992, to be constructed on a site designated for that purpose in the arboretum plan. Construction is planned to begin August 1992. The chancellor at Urbana has recommended that the garden be named the Miles C Hartley Selections Garden in recognition of Dr. Hartley's generous bequest. I concur.
On motion of Dr. Bacon, this recommendation was approved.
