Series 3: Ricardo A. Mestres, 1893-1973
Collection Description & Creator Information
The Office of the Treasurer Records document the ongoing activities of Princeton's administrative office charged with custodianship of the University's finances. The records contain correspondence, annual reports, budgets, audited statements, and other materials which are related to the University's assets, investments, cash flow, and spending practices. The records often delve into minutiae, such as annual budgets for departments or campus organizations and approvals for spending. Despite this, when taken as a whole they provide a fairly comprehensive picture of the financial operations of a major American university in the twentieth century.
Please see series descriptions in contents list for additional information about individual series.
