Biographical/Historical Note:     The Board of Control was created in 1905 (Ch. 5384, Laws of Florida) and consisted of five citizens appointed by the Governor and a Secretary.  It acted under the supervision of the State Board of Education.  The Board of Control had jurisdiction over and complete management and control of several institutions, including the University of the State of Florida, the Florida Female College, and the Institution for the Blind, Deaf and Dumb, which were also created under this 1905 act.
    The size of the board was increased to seven citizens in 1951 (Ch. 26887, Laws), and at that time it governed the University of Florida, Florida State University, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University for Negroes, and the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind.

    In 1965, the duties of the Board of Control were transferred to the Board of Regents (Ch. 63-204; Ch. 65-318, Laws), which consisted of nine citizens and governed all degree granting state institutions of higher learning.
