Administrative History

The Registrar was appointed by the Board of Regents, but had a closer working relationship with the Senate; as Secretary, he kept the records of the latter body. The Registrar’s responsibilities included conducting elections of graduate representatives to the Senate and the Board of Regents, arranging enrolment into and withdrawal from Victoria College, course transfers, applications for scholarships, petition requests, examination requests, and timetable problems; as well as advising on academic matters and organizing functions such as the Charter Day Convocation, Baccalaureate Convocation Service, and the Emmanuel College Graduation. Although the Registrar was technically responsible for Emmanuel, the theological school appointed one of its own staff members to administer the registration of its students.

Scope and Content

Fonds consists of the records of the Registrar and Associate Registrar primarily relating to Victoria College students and student records as well as records related to the other duties of the Registrar, including awards, prizes and scholarships, convocations, registration procedures, baccalaureate services, receptions, counselling, etc. Fonds also consists of material related to the Registrar's work with the Senate. Records include correspondence, annual reports, as well as ephemera and photographs. The fonds is organized into two series:

  • Series 1: Correspondence/subject files, 1893–2013
  • Series 2: Student records, 1837–2008
