Biographical / Historical Note

In 1927, the State Normal School in Eau Claire became the Eau Claire State Teachers College, providing teacher education. During World War II, the college provided accommodations and instruction for Army Air Corp cadets. In 1951, the Board of Regents authorized Eau Claire to grant the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science degrees and the official name of the College became the Wisconsin State College at Eau Claire. In 1964, the institution was renamed Wisconsin State University-Eau Claire. With the merger of the Wisconsin State University System in 1971, the name of the institution was changed to the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
