Biography and History

Biographical details may be obtained from Imbrie's alumni file. He was elected an alumni trustee in 1907, and in 1909 the Trustees created the office of Financial Secretary of the Board to oversee business interests in cooperation with the President, to attend meetings of the Committees on Finance, Grounds and Buildings, and Library and Apparatus in order to coordinate the business departments of the University. Following Imbrie's departure from the Board in 1912, the Financial Secretary's office was abolished and a new Office of Secretary of Business Administration was created to function as the executive for the Committee on Grounds and Buildings. Imbrie remained active on the Graduate Council following his departure from the Board of Trustees.
