Administrative history: In 1907, a Royal Commission was established to examine the government of the University of Manitoba. The ineffectiveness of the University Council was the Commission's primary concern. The Commission also studied the relationships between the affiliated denominational colleges, provincial government funding, the prospect of developing instruction, and a future permanent site for the campus. The Commission's major recommendation was the establishment of a Board of Governors and presidential position to take over the University Council's administrative responsibilities. The Commission was divided on other issues, producing three separate reports on the future relationship between the denominational colleges and university faculties.

Scope and content: The fonds contains submissions to the Royal Commission on the University of Manitoba with testimony from affiliated colleges and other organizations. It includes information on the history of the administration of the University.
