description:

Herman Wells visited the IU Contract Team in Dkjkarta, Indonesia of Feb. 5-6, 1960. After his visit the IU Contract Team sent a photograph album (IU Archives accession number 2006/010) to Herman Wells. This image was scanned from the album noted. The caption for this image reads, in full: "Presentation of Library Books to the Institute of Administration".

A summary of Dr. Wells' speech accompanies the album. The speech reads, in part: "The library is the very heart of an educational project, and the development of a great and distinguished library in Administration is one of the important steps in providing assistance. It should become the working tool for students to use, as here they have the whole experience of the world at their finger tips...I, on behalf of the Indiana University, present to you these books which are symbolic of the large number of volumes to follow."
