Custodial history

Scope and content

The records in this series consist primarily of correspondence, minutes, and reports and are fairly comprehensive for the period between the First World War and 1970. The Annual Reports to the Board of Regents are a particularly valuable source of information, containing as they do reports from the Presidents, Deans or Principals, Treasurers and various committees. The Board made all the major financial and policy decisions for the university; the Presidents, therefore, consulted the Board, or at least its executive, before taking action on important issues. The correspondence with the National Trust Company is concerned mostly with Victoria's investments in property and stock. The committee reports offer insights into proposed campus plans, the construction of buildings such as the library, new academic building, and student union, and the nature of support services on campus. One of the chief and ongoing concerns of the Board was the definition of the nature of Victoria's relationship with both the University of Toronto and the United Church of Canada.
Also includes records related to the Board's Finance and Property Committee and Nominating Committee.
