The position has changed to meet the needs of subsequent administrations to include a variety of functions.
Office files containing correspondence, minutes, memoranda, calendars, and questionnaires relating to students, endowments, lecture series, committees, and other college business. The records were created and maintained by either an Assistant to the President or the President's Executive Secretary.
