Administrative History

The Men's Council was active 1913–1916. In 1914, the new president, Richard Pinch Bowles, signed the charter of the Annesley Student Government Association, which permitted the establishment of the Women's Students Council. In 1920, the name was changed to the Women's Undergraduate Association of Victoria College and membership was mandatory for all female students on campus. The Association was in charge of the administration of female students and undertook any business which did not fall under the jurisdiction of any other societies.

Scope and Content

Fonds consists of minutes of the Students’ Council, 1913–1914; minutes of the Men’s Council, 1914–1916; minutes of the Women's Students Council; 1914-1920; and agreement between the Faculty of Victoria College and Men Students of the College (as represented by the Students’ Council) re student government, 1914.
