Custodial history

The applications for graduate studies predate the Faculty of Graduate Studies' formation and presumably came initially from the Registrar's Office and were transferred to the Faculty in the early 1950s. The Faculty of Graduate Studies Dean's Office created the remainder of the fonds.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of records of the Executive Committee of Graduate Studies (1950-1968), the Committee on Graduate Studies (1964-1967), and the President's Committee of Academic Deans (1969-1974) as well as applications for graduate studies (1932-1951).

Physical condition

Immediate source of acquisition

Acquired in several accessions from the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies, in 1984, 1995, 2007, and 2018.


The files' arrangement within each series varies because three different arrangement types (Alpha-Numeric, Numeric, and Alphabetical) existed within the fonds at various stages. The processor arranged all series, sub-series, and files with the numeric and alphabetical systems in mind. The processor arranged each series according to the logical and/or predominant system within the series. Some sub-series within a series differ in filing systems due to different files preserved in one system versus another.
