Creator Note

The University of Georgia Board of Trustees was created by statute in the Charter of the University of Georgia, drafted by Abraham Baldwin, and ratified by the Georgia State legislature in January of 1785.  As originally structured, the Board of Trustees was one of two bodies in the bicameral governance of the University.  It shared this governance with the Board of Visitors, an appointed body composed of the Governor and other high-ranking individuals in state government.  The Board of Trustees would be charged with the administration of the University’s affairs, and the Board of Visitors was tasked with endorsing appointments and fiscal requests of the Trustees.  In effect, the Board of Visitors was expected to function as the liason between the Trustees and the revenue-dispensing agencies of state government.

Shortly after the commencement of classes in 1801, the final governance structure of a Prudential Committee was put in place by the Trustees.  Because the Trustees normally only met a few times in the course of a given year, it was felt that the day-to-day administration of the University could best be addressed via the mechanism of the Prudential Committee.  From a practical standpoint, then, much of the “business” of maintaining the University fell to the Prudential Committee and, as time went by, to the Faculty.

Outside of the scope of these papers (02-042), there is little extent of the pre-20th century record of governance at the University.  This can doubtless be attributed at least in part to two disastrous fires roughly a century apart.  The first of these, the fire that destroyed New College in 1830, almost certainly destroyed much of the official record of the first three decades at Georgia.  The second fire, which brought down Science Hall in November of 1903, destroyed at least some of the Faculty records (there is a missing volume of Faculty Minutes, 1887-1903 which almost certainly was lost in the fire), and, it is suspected, other pre-20th century documents as well.

While it is true that the Minutes for the Board of Trustees exist for the years 1794-1932 (97-104:1 through 97-104: 8), as do fragmentary minutes for both the Senatus Academicus (1799-1842; number 97-104:5) and the Prudential Committee (1834-1924; numbers 97-104:37 through 97-104:40), this collection of Trustees’ reports and correspondence represents the most comprehensive glimpse into the internal workings of the governance of the University of Georgia in the period preceding what is generally held to be the “modern” era (World War II to present).

The Board of Trustees and the other extant structures of governance were swept aside in the reorganization of the State University System which took place in 1931-1932.  In place of  the largely institution-specific Board of Trustees, there emerged a Board of Regents, charged with the responsibility of maintaining authority over all state-supported higher education in Georgia.

Major Series/Subseries in UA 02-042:

Minutes/Resolutions 1878-1931:  This series consists of both notes and drafts of Board of Trustees; Minutes of meetings, and drafts of resolutions brought for consideration at Board meetings.  It is organized chronologically for both subseries (this organizational schema most nearly represents the previous calendaring of the collection).  Box 1, files 1-84

Annual Reports 1890-1932:  This series includes reports from a variety of agencies, from the Trustees as a whole (and their subsidiary and supernumerary components as well), to subsidiary elements of the University of Georgia in Athens, to what were once referred to as Branch Colleges throughout the state.  Reports from the office of the Chaplain and from the Medical Department in particular help present a fuller picture of University life as the campus moved from the 19th into the 20th century.   Box 1, files 85-105 & Box 2, files 1-42

Committee Reports 1890-1931: Included in this series are reports from standing Trustees Committees and special appointed committees dealing with myriad aspects of the administration of the University.  Key subseries treat the development of the physical plant, monitor and review issues of laws and discipline for the students, and grapple with issues of both student financial aid and general fiscal policy.  There is also a file on interactions with the Alumni Society.   Box 2, files 43-51 & Box 3, files 1-35

Auxiliary Reports 1879-1931:  This small series of reports includes catalogues, fiduciary documents, recommendations on degrees, and petitions (including a series of petitions pertaining to the issue of admission of women to the University).  Box 3, files 36-40 & Box 4, files 1-7

Correspondence 1866-1931:  This series is organized topically for the most part, though a smaller subseries within this series is organized chronologically, and principal correspondents for each time period are listed.  Of interest topically within the series are files on the admission of women, the emergence of athletics at the University, early attempts at the mechanism of self-study (Committee to Investigate the University), the growing role of the military on campus, and the increasing involvement of private philanthropists such as George Foster Peabody.  The collection offers an interesting array of 19th and early 20th century business letterhead design.   Box 4, files 8-72 & Box 5, files 1-61

Estrays (Miscellaneous) 1891-1931:  These materials resisted classification as either correspondence or reports, and thus form their own small subject-oriented series.  Of particular interest is an extract from Faculty Minutes of 1891 (the only such document extant, as the regular Faculty Minutes for that period were lost in the Science Hall fire of 1903).  Researchers may also find the copies of the University’s Code of Laws from 1897 and 1928 to be of some interest.  Box 5, files 62-81

Collection Working Papers 2002-2003:  This small box houses the working papers of Ms. Ann N. Graham, principal processing archivist for this collection.  

On the Reorganization:

These papers were received into the Rare Book/Special Collections section of the University of Georgia Libraries at some point prior to the mid-1950s.  In the late 1950s - early 1960s, these papers were calendared by Special Collections staff under the supervision of John Bonner and housed in six boxes.  This dual system was arranged chronologically, with the initial series of Reports followed by a series of Correspondence, each in their separate chronological sequence.  Either in the course of original ordering, or over years of use by patrons, support documents became equally dispersed into both the Reports and Correspondence series, and there was migration of Reports documents into the Correspondence folders and Correspondence into Reports files as well.

In 1996-1997, it was decided that the papers were relatively inaccessible to researchers in their then-current sequence, and it was decided to re-order the collection, developing broad organic series suggested by the records themselves.  Almost immediately, this work was shelved to allow Archives to deal with dislocations presented by the HVAC renovations that commenced at the UGA Libraries in 1997.  In 2002, Ms. Ann Graham joined University Archives staff as a student worker.  Her first project of significance was the completion of work on these Trustees’ papers.  After sorting through the collection to assess the scope and content of materials, Ms. Graham worked with Gilbert Head in delineating the major series and subseries into which the papers in this collection would be gathered.  Ms. Graham then refoldered and reboxed the collection into a buffered environment, and generated a file-level inventory of these papers.  This phase of work was completed on the last day of March, 2003.
