Different labor groups and agencies have made intensive studies periodically of the movement of salaries and wages in the trades and industries. To a lesser extent the income of certain professional groups, including physicians, dentists, and engineers, have been studied, but few analyses have been published concerning the compensation received by college professors and other faculty members in the institutions of higher education in the United States. To supply this need, this study was made to determine the present status of college salaries paid to members of various faculty ranks, to compare the situation in different types of colleges, and to show for the land-grant institutions only, salary trends over a period of years before and during the depression. Sufficient summaries are made to show salary scales in publicly and privately controlled colleges and universities, both large and small, but no individual institution may be identified. This study presents an analysis of the salaries that full-time faculty members receive in the colleges and universities in the United States. For convenience and in order to show certain trends, the study is divided into two parts. Part I includes an analysis of the salaries of 25,530 full-time faculty members in 252 colleges and universities for the college year 1935-36. Part II includes comparable salary data for 51 land-grant colleges and universities over a period of years-1928-29, 1929-30, 1930-31, and 1934-35. (Contains 16 tables and 3 footnotes.)
