Rockefeller III's visit to Chapel Hill to present the first public report of the recommendations of the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future. CPC NewsNotes included the following description of the event: Held at the Carolina Inn [on October 19, 1972], CPC's Leadership Council dinner attracted more than 200 business and professional leaders from across the state to hear John D. Rockefeller 3rd and Duke President Terry Sanford. Mr. Rockefeller, who recently completed his work as chairman of the Commission on Population Growth and the American Future, said that after two years of intensive study, his Congressionally-created group found that a levelling off of U.S. population growth would benefit the nation economically as well as socially. Former Governor Sanford urged North Carolina to form its own "commission for land use and population policy," and emphasized that "It must be endowed with position and influence and teeth." He expressed hope that his state would learn from the ugly consequences of unplanned growth in other parts of the country "before it is too late." In North Carolina, he concluded, "we still have time to preserve what we have, to grow as we should, to shape and establish a goodly heritage, as living and lasting pride of our 'Carolineage.'"

CPC Publishes Books on Population
CPC actively researched population change and trends in North Carolina and, as a way to disseminate that research and other work by CPC, also published and widely distributed its own materials. This is a cover of one of the books published by CPC Publications in 1973, written by Thomas Steahr, former Director of Demographic Research and Services at CPC.
"A Structure for Population Education" book published by CPC
CPC's interests in population education were strong and multifaceted, and included development of a curriculum for population education, produced in collaboration with UNC's Health Education department. This book, published by CPC Publications in 1974, provides educators with reasons that population education is important and ways to integrate it into the classroom curriculum. This 26-page excerpt of the 116-page book includes the goals and generalizations of population education.
CPC Develops Thesaurus for Population Field
The Population/Family Planning Thesaurus was developed by CPC's Technical Information Services. It was developed to answer a need for population researchers to more easily and accurately search for and retrieve articles and books about population. Though the thesaurus was used primarily by population librarians and indexers, it also provided population scholars with a common set of terms and concepts to describe the population field and related literature. This thesaurus and another created by Columbia University were the foundation for the POPLINE keywords. First published in 1975 as a 286-page book, this excerpt provides a description of the thesaurus, examples of how it should be used, and part of the alphabetical list of terms.

CPC Logo
This cover of CPC's organizational brochure in 1976 features the logo that CPC used for many years. The brochure offers this description of the logo: The CPC symbol is a stylized version of the graph often used to represent the classic “demographic transition.” The curve forming the left edge of the reverse S-like figure within the circle depicts the decline of death rates, as a nation benefits from public health and other programs which reduce mortality. The curve forming the right edge of the “S” depicts the subsequent decline of birth rates, as a result of the reduction of desired family size and the influence of fertility control measures.

1970 CPC Organizational Chart
The Director, reporting to the Chancellor, had primary oversight of the services provided by the National Programs Office, the International Programs Office, and Technical Materials office. The Director was supported by the Deputy Director, the Associate Director of Financial Development, and Associate Director of Administration. In this proposed organizational structure, the Deputy Director would supervise research activities, which were organized by “program areas” such as Family Planning Development, Population Policy, Family Dynamics, and others. The Deputy Director would also be responsible for academic programs.
1973 CPC Organizational Chart
This was the actual organizational structure of the early 1970s. The Director reported to the Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs, Cecil Sheps, and had several different advisory bodies: Policy Board, Academic Programs Council, and Leadership Council. The Leadership Council, a group of public leaders, was first chaired by Hon. John M. Belk, Mayor of Charlotte. Shearon Harris was also a member of the Council, which was disbanded around 1975. CPC’s Special Project Units provided technical assistance and related projects in the U.S. and abroad. Faculty associates had academic appointments and trainees were enrolled in classes of the University schools and departments, Anthropology to Zoology. The Academic Programs Office (APO) handled the Center’s educational functions: development of interdisciplinary courses on population topics and coordinating and sponsoring seminars, workshops, and conferences. The State Services Office (SSO) organized and provided training to North Carolina nurses, mental health workers, and other health care providers on providing family planning services. It also developed and made available the NC Files, an extensive resource of information on clinics and family planning programs in the state of North Carolina at that time. The International Programs Office (IPO) enabled CPC staff to support its numerous international projects, and also coordinated area study groups and provided support for overseas training programs. Demographic Research and Services provided demographic analysis and research support to CPC projects and to students and faculty studying population. Technical Information Services (TIS) included the CPC library and provided training and support to the population information community, especially to those overseas with fewer resources. TIS also developed a thesaurus of population terms to aid in cataloging and indexing population materials. The Communications and Planning Office coordinated the development of publications on providing technical assistance activities, conducting population research and disseminating findings from the research, and developing a population education curriculum. CPC was the publisher of these materials.
1978 CPC Organizational Chart
This was the organizational structure of the Center shortly after Udry was appointed Director. The Director reported to the Vice Chancellor for Health Sciences, Christopher Columbus Fordham. The Director continued to receive guidance from the Academic Programs Council and the Policy Board. The Fellows program, introduced in 1977, appears in this structure. CPC services were organized into the APO (Academic Programs Office, including the training program), Research Services (including administration, library, publications, and data services), and the International Programs Office (which included USA Programs Office and project support).
1983 CPC Organizational Chart
This organizational chart reflects additional structural changes made by Udry to CPC operations after being appointed Director in 1977. Of the changes, Udry wrote “One of the main themes of the reorganization has been integration of core services and creation of a Centerwide network of automated services.” Services were organized into: Administration, Computer Services, Population Library, Editorial Services, and Statistical Consultants. The Fellows Assembly was and is composed of all Fellows. Fellows also served on the Advisory Council and the Training Committee. The director continued to report to the Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs, James R. Turner.
1988 CPC Organizational Chart
Although the charts look somewhat different, there was little change in the organization of the Center between 1983 and 1988. Services remain Administration, Editorial, Computer Services, Library, and Statistical Services. Coordination of the training program was added at the level of the core services. The 1988 chart shows the Managers’ Group, which included the head or manager of each core service, who informed and advised the Director. The Deputy Director position was added, as were project staff and trainees. The Center’s placement within the University remained the same, with the director continuing to report to the Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs, H. Garland Hershey.
1995 CPC Organizational Chart
The chart for 1995 is very similar to the chart for 1988. The Director continued to report to the Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs. The services of Administration, Computer Services, Statistical Services, and the Training Coordinator position continued, and a new core service, Spatial Analysis, was added. In addition, Information Services was created to include the library and editorial services.
2000 CPC Organizational Chart
A change in the administrative structure of the University meant that the CPC Director reported to the Associate Provost for Health Affairs. The Deputy Director was no longer a part of the structure. Services continued to include Administration, Computer Services, Spatial Analysis, Statistical Services, and the Training Coordinator position. A new core, Biomedical Services, was added. Graphics Services was moved to the Information Services core.
2004 CPC Organizational Chart
This organizational chart was submitted with CPC’s first R24 application. The only real difference from the 2000 chart is a change in the reporting lines for the Director, who reported to the Vice Chancellor for Research and Economic Development, Tony Waldrop. Core services remained unchanged.
2006 CPC Organizational Chart
In July 2005, Barbara Entwisle reorganized core research services at the Center. The organizational chart was submitted with the R24 progress report in March 2006 to show these changes. The Deputy Director for Research Services position, held by Nancy Dole, is created and oversees the Research Services units: Research Programming, Library, Publications and Graphics, Web Services, Data Support Services, Reporting and Proposals, Systems and User Services, and Spatial Analysis. Spatial Analysis is also one of the consulting cores, along with Biomedical and Statistical Services. The rest of the structure remains unchanged. The position of Associate Director for Finance and Administration, held by Tom Heath, oversees the administrative functions of Financial Services, General Services and Support Services. The training program is distinct from the core services, and is led by Jan Hendrickson-Smith. Advisory Groups of the Fellows, Advisory Council, and the Training Committee continue.
