Administrative history

The Bursar's responsibilities with regard to property were initially the insurance of buildings and their contents. However, as the need for regular income became more urgent and evident, and as the University expanded and required more buildings, the Bursar's work likewise increased. The Bursar became responsible for the legal negotiations and accounting over purchases, sales and leases; and the supervision and funding of alterations and renovations and the construction of new buildings. Along with this, the Bursar dealt with property tax as the University was only exempt from this in respect to its property used for academic purposes.

Scope and Content

Series consists of correspondence, studies, reports, appraisals, financial administration, agreements, plans, specifications and other records relating to the planning, expansion, renovating, maintenance, repair and construction work on campus buildings and grounds, 1892,1922-2010.

Series consists of correspondence relating to the establishment and funding of Victoria Theatre and ongoing budgetary needs, 1969–1970; and correspondence, schedules, minutes, reports, proposals and other records relating to the administration of the Isabel Bader Theatre, 2000–2005.
