Scope and content

Henry Poetteker served as CMBC president for the years 1959-1978. The series does not, however, contain only Poettcker materials, but also contains most of the correspondence of the earlier College presidents for the years 1947-1959. The pre-1959 correspondence comes to 0.13 meters; for the years 1959-1965 it measures 0.52 meters. Part of the I.I. Friesen correspondence for the years 1951-1956 can be found in the H. H. Wall files. The Henry Poetteker files contain the most complete series of various sets of records. Included are: a) minutes - CMBC Board 1949-1969 b) minutes - Faculty Meetings 1948-1975 c) minutes - CMBC Board Executive 1955-1969 d) reports - CMBC 1952-1969 In addition to the CMBC materials, the Poetteker files contain considerable amounts of correspondence and records related to other educational institutions. He was also involved with many Conference boards, from which he has minutes, reports, and related correspondence. Most of these materials date from the years 1959-1971. The documents in the Henry Poetteker files are original and are in good condition. Because most of the material is bound in ACCO Press binders the papers have been prevented from becoming torn or crumpled. CMBC Board minutes were (with a few exceptions) kept in German until 1962. Otherwise the majority of the post-1960 material is in the English language.
