Historical Note

When Mount Holyoke Female Seminary was founded in 1837, the office of Treasurer to the Board of Trustees and to the Seminary was held by a Board Member. This changed in 1915 with the appointment of a College Treasurer who no longer served on the Board. Over the next seventy years the office and responsibilities of the Treasurer underwent considerable changes; at different periods, the Treasurer also held the posts of Business Manager and Comptroller. From 1987-1993 the Office of the Treasurer included both the posts of Treasurer and Comptroller. The Office of Financial Services emerged in 1994. It is a merger of Treasurer, Comptroller and Financial Aid, together with several other financial departments.
