Provenance

The General Administration Collection (also known as the Archives General Collection) of the University Archives is drawn primarily from the records of Office of the Secretary, Office of the Provost and Office of the Treasurer as well as those of the deans of the college and medical school. The majority of the records were held by the Secretary and Treasurer of the University and turned over the University Archives when it was created in 1945. The University Library also had a number of early manuscript records in its collections which were turned over to the Archives in the 1950s and 1960s and to this were added the historical collection of the Dean of the School of Medicine in the 1950s. In addition to these sources a number of individual documents and groups of documents found in this collection were donated or acquired by the University. The provenance of this latter group is often noted on the original document or the document abstract. Beginning in the 1950s all the pre-1820 documents were pulled together into one single collection that it is found today.
