PSC Administrative Council

This document lists the names of the first members of the Administrative Council for the newly formed Professional Staff Congress (PSC). Created out of a merger between the Legislative Conference (LC) and the United Federation of College Teachers (UFCT) the new union's Administrative Council included equal representation of leaders from both groups.

Despite the benefits the combined PSC afforded both the LC and UFCT, the merging of the two former rivals was not without difficulties, particularly in matters of union leadership. Initially led by President Belle Zeller from the former LC and Deputy President Israel Kugler from the former UFCT, the two highest offices lacked clearly defined roles and responsibilities. This plus past lingering tensions led to much contention and a split among members into caucuses in the union's earliest days.
