Guide to the Physical Plant / Facilities Planning Records 1995/1998 University Archives Overview of the Collection Physical Plant / Facilities Planning Records 1995-1998 02/14/U0644 2.00 English University Archives Papers that document the work of the Physical Plant / Facilities at the University of North Texas. Administrative History:

The University of North Texas was founded in 1890, but did not have its first building, the Normal Building, until 1891. As the campus grew positions were added to help maintain the structures.  By 1914, the school had a janitor who was housed on campus. This person was responsible for five structures. Each of the buildings had electricity, steam heat, and was connected to the city sewer system. Another selling point was the availability of natural gas for the science and home economics laboratories. As the campus continued to grow the need for an office to organize maintenance and planning became apparent.  In 1925, Earnest Carson King was the Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds. By 1930, Mr. W. W. Yerby was in the Superintendent position. The name of this department also changed over time to reflect the growth in responsibilities and services provided. The department has been called: Buildings and Grounds (1925-1947), Services and Supplies (1948-1949), the Service Center (1950-1971), the Physical Plant (1972-1985), Physical Plant and Facilities Planning(1986-2001), and Facilities(2000-Present). Currently Facilities comprised of Support and Services, Maintenance, and Planning, Design and Construction.
