Scope and content
Records in this series represent the functions and activities of the Director of Administration for the British Columbia New Democratic Party.
File 449-14, in the "Women's Rights Committee (WRC) records" series of this fonds, includes a document entitled "Provincial Office Staffing," that defines the Director of Administration's duties as pertaining to "Election finances, tax receipts and paper flow, Party finances, cash flow, accounting, budgeting, back-up to Provincial Secretary," as well as implying supervision of specific staff and projects. The Director of Administration would often join the Provincial Secretary as a member of the B.C. Council of Federal Ridings, and would manage records related to the Federal NDP, local constituency associations, clubs, and holding societies. The Director would also manage much of the correspondence sent to the Provincial Office.
The majority of records in this series have been created by two Directors; Lin Rubin, and Sherry Hyde, who took over the Director position ca. 1991. Records in this series include correspondence, memos, budget and finance documents, meeting agenda and minutes, notes, speech transcripts, clippings, and other related materials.
Immediate source of acquisition
Many of the files in this series included copies of correspondence from other party members, such as the Provincial Secretary, that were duplicated elsewhere in the fonds; these files were removed when processing. Files were received across multiple boxes, and had been appraised first by the Executive Secretary prior to boxing, and then again by an appraising archivist prior to transfer to Rare Books and Special Collections. As such, several boxes had been combined with records from other series, with separators included in some but not all instances. Files have been arranged in a rough chronological order by box prior to description, with the received file order in each box maintained.
