The John Rouse Collection provides online access to a collection of op-ed articles on the subjects of Muncie, Indiana, and national politics written for The Muncie Star (and later, The Star Press) by Ball State University Professor of Political Science John Rouse. Articles in the collection date from 1985 to 2000.
The collection includes digitized video recordings of episodes of the Public Affairs Roundtable television program broadcast on WIPB-TV in Muncie, IN dating from 1985 to 1990. The program, for which Rouse served as producer-commentator, featured discussions regarding political, social, and economic issues with Muncie area experts and community leaders.
John Rouse joined the Ball State University Department of Political Science faculty in 1976 and teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in public administration, American government and politics, and organizational theory. Additional materials from the John Rouse archival collection are available in Archives & Special Collections.
