The materials in this series of the Administration and Finance Administrative Files reflect the work of Herman J. Brames, former Vice President of Administration and Finance at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. Mr. Brames joined USF in 1964 as a resident instructor in Beta Hall on the Tampa campus. He also taught behavioral science courses in the College of Basic Studies. By 1965, USF applied to the federal government to take over the former site of the United States Maritime Service Training Station along Bayboro Harbor. Mr. Brames came to the campus as center administrator in August 1966. Over the years, he held many leadership positions on campus, retiring in the spring of 2003 as vice president of Administration and Finance. This position included oversight of campus site acquisitions and improvements, physical plant, and auxiliary services. The bulk of the collection (dates: 1963 to 1984) is composed of property information related to the original campus site along Bayboro Harbor and annual reports submitted to the United States Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) to comply with terms for acquiring this site. The overall collection (inclusive dates: 1913 to 1999) also contains various correspondence, reports, site files, and other documents related to the growth of the USF St. Petersburg campus through the 1990s.
