Related Materials

In the course of carrying out its duties, the Office of the Treasurer works with nearly every University administrator and department. Topics that are touched upon in the Office of the Treasurer Records can also often be found in the records of other offices, including but not limited to the Office of the President Records, the Office of the Secretary Records, the Office of the Dean of the College Records, and the Office of the Dean of the Faculty Records, and the General Counsel Records. The also library holds a separate collection of the records of the Office of the Controller (AC161).

In addition to these materials, the library holds the collected financial ledgers and account books of the University dating from 1791 until the 1980s. The earliest of these ledgers can be found in AC128, Series 1. Other, mostly later ledgers can be found in AC161, Office of the Controller Records.

Additional records generated by the Office of Financial Vice President and Treasurer during Carl Schafer's term in those roles (1976-1987) can be found in AC233 Office of the Vice President for Finance and Treasurer Records. Due to the 2005 creation of the Office of the Vice President for Finance and Treasurer, records of treasurers from 2008 onward will be found in AC233.
