Business Affairs Office, 1896-1996
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

The earliest records in this series are two ledger books dated 1899-1917, the first of which contains costs for erecting Altgeld Hall, as well as payroll and other expenses.  However, the majority of the records document the activities of the Business Affairs Office from the mid-1950's through the mid-1980's.  University Financial Reports make up a major portion of this series.  Campus Parking Committee records from the 1950's through the 1980's are also found here.  The University’s financial report and the Department of Public Safety’s annual report were added regularly to the series.

For more information concerning the Business Affairs Office, Auxiliary Services, and the Physical Plant researchers should consult the Presidents’ Papers (UA 4), as well as other University Archives holdings.  Information relating to the Physical Plant can also be found in Campus Development records (UA 48), and information on the Parking Committee can be found in Boards, Councils and Committees (UA 17).  For information relating to University Business matters since 1996 consult the Vice President for Finance and Facilities Office Records (UA 5).
