Scope and Contents

This sub-group of the Board of Trustees Records contains minutes taken at Amherst College board of trustees meetings. Series A contains the official volumes of minutes. The volumes cover the years 1825 to 2006. Minutes after 1967 are bound by academic year. Minutes from 2006-2013 are not bound. Series B contains bound volumes of non-record copies. In 1939, the trustees of Amherst College authorized the typescript transcription of the first one hundred years of trustee minutes. The project was completed by 1946. These volumes cover the years 1825-1923. The archives holds four copies of the typescript. In addition to this discrete project, the series also includes four other groupings of bound copies of minutes. The contents listing below describes date ranges and volume numbers. Series C contains unbound copies of the official minutes covering the period from 1922 to 2000.

The sub-group is arranged into three series:

Series A: Official Minutes, 1825-2013

Series B: Bound Minutes - Non-Record Copies, 1845-1986

Series C: Unbound Minutes - Non-Record Copies, 1922-2000
