Scope and Contents
The Board of Trustees Records include the records of the Board of Trustees of Colorado Seminary, an entity created by Legislative Charter in 1864 which holds legal title to University property, and the Board of Trustees of the University of Denver, the corporation that grants degrees earned in the University. It also includes minutes and associated documents of committees of the boards. The official minutes of the Boards are contained in bound volumes, as are the minutes of the Executive Committee of the Board and certain minutes of other committees. The associated materials, including agendas and packages of material sent to the Board members prior to meetings are not complete. These documents were kept by the Chancellors and were often transferred to the Archives with the Chancellors files. Beginning in the 1960s attempts were made to transfer this material directly to the Archives as a part of the Board of Trustees documents, but there are still gaps in the record. To gain the complete record of back-up material, it may be necessary to access the Chancellors' records.
Items in this series have been grouped together because they are bound books describing financial matters that do not necessarily focus on a particular Board of Trustees committee.
