Fortunately the records were kept by Dr. Richard Van Hoose, former superintendent of Jefferson County schools and an early proponent of using television for instructional purposes Dr. Van Hoose was present at the creation of KET and served for many years on various boards and committees concerned with guiding KET. Dr. Jerry Perry, professor of Mass Communications at Eastern Kentucky University, had access to Dr. Van Hoose's extensive records when researching his doctoral dissertation on the history of KET. Through Dr. Perry's efforts Dr. Van Hoose decided to deposit these records at the Eastern Kentucky University Archives. The KET records have been divided into four series. The first series is the Budget and Financial series which deals with the financial affairs of KET. The second series is the Correspondence series which covers the period from January 1960 to August 1976. The next series is the Minutes series, which covers the period 1961 to 1976 and encompasses the minutes of various related KET agencies and their subcommittees. Dr. Perry's dissertation is the fourth series. In addition to the above series, over twenty Oral History taped interviews with key educational and political leaders who helped shape KET's future were conducted by Dr. Perry during his research. These tapes have been cataloged separately and can be found in the Oral History section of the Archives.Container ListBudget and Financial SeriesThis series, composed of one box (Box 1), covers budget and financial affairs of the Kentucky Educational Television Network from the years 1963 to 1970 and again from 1972 to1974.
