Office of the Secretary records, 1866-2004

Series III. Binders of Information, 1928-1988

The Office of the Secretary maintained binders of information containing indices to Trustee minutes and committee minutes, information regarding by-laws and statutes for both the Board of Trustees and Faculties and Departments as well as historical information on named professorships. These were removed from the binders and placed in folders by Raju Mann, a student worker, in the summer of 1999. Set numbers from the original binders were maintained. Each file has a code which is composed of a two-letter designation for the set, along with a sequential number of the file within the entire set. These appear in parentheses after the folder title in this list. Some additional by-law materials, charter and statute materials, and affirmative action procedures were added to the end of box 9 from files and a binder found in a box of publications obtained from the Office of the Secretary in March 2000.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only Columbia affiliates may view materials on-site. After clicking 'Submit Request', affiliates will login with their UNI and password. Appointments are required and will be arranged according to each individual repository's policy.
