Abstract: In his January 2010 interviews with Joe Corry, Blair Mathews provides a brief overview of his work with student services at the University of Wisconsin-Madison from the 1960s to the 2000s. He outlined the major shift in how student services were conceived on the Madison campus, beginning with Martha Peterson?s investigative committee and culminating in such programs as the McBurney Resource Center. He also offers his perspectives on the turmoil of the 1960s, major UW administrative figures, and the utility of cross-college cooperation. This interview was conducted for inclusion into the UW-Madison Oral History Program. Key Words: University of Wisconsin-Madison; Slichter Hall; Carson Gulley; Ft.
