The Purdue Opinion Panel was initiated in 1941 by Dr. Hermann H. Remmers, Professor of Psychology and Director of Educational Reference, and was active until 1976. At the time the panel was operating, it was the only source of research dedicated to high school students from the perspective of parents and that studied students' educational goals, issues, and needs. Purdue faculty used the panel's studies in teaching both undergraduate and graduate students.
This collection was donated on January 11, 2012, by Phyllis Arline Coling, a former member of the Purdue Measurement and Research Center and Director of the Purdue Opinion Panel. The item "Drugs, Booze, and Tobacco: How a Story was Handled" was moved from MSF 321, the Hermann H. Remmers papers, and re-foldered.
Collection materials were rehoused in acid-free folders and boxes. Materials from a binder were removed and rehoused in Folder 25. The black and white portrait photograph of H.H. Remmers was foldered and boxed.
