While at U of L he also served as an advisor to Phi Kappa Tau, hosted and produced "University Today" on WAVE-3, and was the director and president of the American Association of Evening Colleges (now the Association for Continuing Higher Education).

Brief Description of the Collection

The William C. Huffman collection consists of 15.25 linear feet of materials related Huffman's tenure as Director of the University of Louisville Foundation and Dean of University College from the 1950s to the 1970s. The collection consists of business files relating to grants, gifts, and endowments. Also included is correspondence with other university officials concerning the business practices of these other schools' foundations. The records document his involvement with the American Association of Evening Colleges (now Association for Continuing Higher Education), the National Association of College and University Summer Sessions, and the University of Louisville Foundation. A small portion of the records deal with Huffman's activities outside his capacities as officer for the University of Louisville, including his interests as an academician and religious activist.
