    <head>Administrative History</head>
        <p>The Brewster presidential administration's primary objective was to
        raise academic standards comprehensively throughout Yale University. This
        required the substantial revision of certain existing policies and disciplines,
        as well as the development of new programs, schools, and departments.</p>
        <p>President Brewster began this process in the 1960s by significantly
        increasing the size of the faculty and by actively recruiting renowned non-Yale
        scholars to fill the positions. According to Brewster, previous Yale administrations
        tended to overlook high caliber academicians who graduated and specialized outside
        the university. . . .</p>
        <p>As the size of the Yale faculty increased, Brewster's new admissions
        policies caused the make up of the undergraduate body to shift. By the early
        1960s, most undergraduates had prepared at private schools, and many were sons
        of Yale alumni. As with the faculty, Brewster felt that Yale was consistently
        overlooking some of the best intellectual student talent necessary to maintain
        the highest levels of academic excellence. In a 1965 speech to alumni, Brewster
        summarized his administration's revised recruitment policy by stating that Yale
        would only seek students
            <p>whose capacity for intellectual achievement is outstanding and who
            also have the motivation to put their intellectual capacities to creatively
            influential use, in thought, in art, in science, or in the exercise of public
            or private or professional responsibility.</p>
