Welcome to the guide to archival collections in the UW-Stout Archives related to the Chancellors and Presidents of the UW-Stout and its predecessors.
The leader of Stout retained the title of "President" until 1971, when the Wisconsin State Universities and the University of Wisconsin campuses merged to form the University of Wisconsin System in 1971. Following that merger, all Stout leaders bear the title, "Chancellor."
Biographical Information about Stout leaders prior to Chancellor Frank is available in the book, An Idea Comes of Age, by Jerome Poling. The book was published for the university's 125th Anniversary, and is available for purchase.
