Abstract:

This collection contains bound volumes of the final drafts of the proceedings of the President and Fellows of Harvard College prepared by the Secretaries of the Corporation beginning in 1827. Pre-1827 proceedings were transcribed in the 19th century from the College Books and are included in this collection. The proceedings document the Corporation's role in the governance of the University and include information about the origin and development of the Corporation's exercise of executive power at Harvard, the Corporation's decision making process, the conduct of routine University business, and the evolution of Harvard from a small college into a modern university. The volumes contain handwritten transcriptions of early Corporation proceedings recorded in the College Books (UAI 5.10) for the years 1643 to March 31, 1827 that were extracted and copied between 1828 and 1855 on the order of the Corporation, and the formal minutes kept for meetings from April 1827 through 1989.
