The program trained cadets in fields that prepared them for careers in the United States Air Force. This collection includes correspondence, commissions, press releases, and publications related to the Air Force ROTC program.


Biographical/historical information

Detachment 600 of the Air Force ROTC program was established at then East Carolina College in 1948. Lt. Col. William Brown served as the first commander. During the 1948-49 school year, a Cadet Club and Rifle Team were organized along with the inaugural Military Ball at East Carolina. The first commissioning ceremony in 1950 involved 30 cadets. The program was initially housed in the Old Austin building before moving into the Whichard Building in 1968. It is currently housed on the 3rd floor of the Wright Building. Classroom instruction is provided by active duty personnel and awards scholarships to many of the cadets.
