Compound Item Description
Title Charles Flemming McElhinney
Description Charles Flemming McElhinney (commonly known as C. F. McElhinney or “Mr. Mac”) was born on Sept. 19, 1907 in Truro, Nova Scotia. He received a bachelor’s degree from Acadia University in 1926 at the age of eighteen and taught in public schools in Canada before continuing graduate studies. He received a masters of arts degree from Columbia University in 1928. McElhinney moved to Houston in 1934, taking the position of Assistant Director of Curriculum and Research for the Houston Independent School District from 1934-1939. He became Director of Research from 1939-1945, and business manager for the University of Houston which, until 1945, was operated by the Houston Independent School District. During this time he also served as a staff assistant to E. E. Oberholtzer. From 1945 until his retirement in 1973, McElhinney served as the business manager of the university. During this time, he was given the position of Vice-President and Business Manager from 1950-1962, and was Senior Vice-President for Finance and Treasurer from 1962-1973. He also served as interim president of the University from 1953-1954, a position he agreed to serve in to allow time for the Board of Regents to select a new President. During McElhinney's years at the University, he also served as a faculty member in the Department of Education, and as a sponsor of several student activities and programs. Additionally, he was the coach of the first athletic team fielded by the university (ice hockey) in 1934 while the university was still known as the Houston Junior College. When he retired in August 1973, the Board of Regents renamed the Graduate Studies building in honor of McElhinney’s decades of service to the University.
