Scope and content

These records consist of correspondence (1948-1959), scattered CMBC reports (1948-1959), and minutes (1947-1948, 1953-1958, 1960), as well as a variety of financial records (three ledgers, correspondence, planning work re College budgets and financing of building projects).

The run of correspondence in these records is complete, but few reports are included and the minutes have many gaps. There are a few scattered minutes from 1947-1948, and no minutes at all for the years 1949-1952 in this series. The financial records pertain largely to building funds for the administration building. (Most of the financial ledgers of the College were passed on to subsequent business administrators.)

All the material in these files is original and is generally in good condition. The few onion-skin carbon copies have become fragile (some frayed edges). The legibility of the documents is good since most of the materials are typewritten. About 60% of the documents in these files are in the English language. The German language materials tend to be correspondence with senior CMBC board members such as J. J. Thiessen.
