Name of creator
The Committee of Management was constituted in 1903 with the opening of Annesley Hall. The Board of Regents had resolved the year earlier that a group of ladies be organized to oversee the administration of women's residences. Many of the members were also members of the Barbara Heck Memorial Association (V.W.A.) who continued to be involved with the women's residence. The constitution of the Committee of Management gave its members charge of the regulations for students, the direction of finances, and the appointment of staff. Standing committees were also appointed in order to overlook finances, the gymnasium and the infirmary. The Committee had eighteen members, nominated by the VWA and approved by the Board of Regents. Margaret Burwash (1902-13), Mrs. R. N. (Mary Jane Crossen) Burns (1913-30), and Mrs. A. E. (Florence Warner) Lang (1930-32) served as Presidents. Beginning in 1920, the Committee of Management lost most of it's power over the finances of the residences. In 1932, the Board of Regents hired a warden to take over the administration of residences from the Committee of Management and the Committee merged into the Women’s Council.
Originally these records were part of the Records related to Women Collection (Fonds 2069) but were made into their own fonds in 2017.
Scope and content
Fonds consists of three series: Committee Records, which includes minutes of the Committee, reports of the Dean of Residences/Dean of Women to the Committee, correspondence, by-laws and constitutions, financial reports and other documents related to the management of residences. This fonds also contains the Records of the Women’s Student Union Advisory Committee / Wymilwood Committee series, as well as the Records of the Women's Council series.
