Buck to the acting directorship of MRC marked a change in the role of the director, the most salient aspect of which was that all future directors would be chosen from within the university. This inevitably and significantly affected MRC's operation as well as its relation to other campus units.

In addition to advancing research in splines, MRC also took care to see that the results were disseminated. The area was judged so important that MRC devoted two semiannual conferences to it: the Autumn 1968 Advanced Seminar on Theory and Applications of Spline Functions, chaired by T. N. E. Greville, and the Spring 1969 Symposium on Approximation Theory with Particular Emphasis on Spline Functions, chaired by I. J. Schoenberg. Activity in the numerical solution of ordinary and partial differential equations and of integral equations continued during most of this period, but in the early part of the period the level of effort was not uniformly high.
