Title: Registrar's Office fonds.
Extent: 1.27 m of textual records.
Administrative history: The Registrar was an honorary officer of the University from 1877 to 1907 when the position was made the first permanent, salaried official of the University. The Registrar's duties included the recording and preserving of the permanent academic records of students, administering rules of the Senate regarding exams, and observing the credentials of students applying for admission. The Registrar was also in charge of supervising all university publications and, as Secretary of Senate, was the official liaison between the Senate and the Board of Governors. By 1975, the Registrar's duties had expanded so considerably that they were divided up between the Student Records Office and the Admissions Office.
