Biographical/Historical Note

The Treasurer of the College was one of the original officers of administration and was responsible for financial transactions and record keeping functions on a daily and yearly basis. As financial and accounting issues became more complex in the twentieth century, the Treasurer's Office expanded in scope and included the Bursar's Office, Accounting Office, and the Controller's Office. In 1991, the position became part of the larger office of the Vice President for Finance and Administration and Treasurer.


Scope and Content

Records include important historical documents and a variety of significant materials: early financial reports, pledge subscriptions, salary records, deeds, tuition records, cash disbursement records, and many other records of financial activity. Many of the records have been bound into volumes. Others are arranged by date. Financial records created after 1951 are found in the Vice President for Finance and Administration and Treasurer collection.
