Name of creator
St. Ann's Academy (Victoria, B.C.). Commercial Dept.
The Commercial Department or class was first begun in March of 1892 by Sister Mary Providence and an assistant. Her assistant Sister Mary Matthew commenced the class again in 1894, but due to her health, classes were not continued until the 1897-1898 school year. The Commercial Department remained as part of the Academy's operations until 1968-1969 school year, when it was discontinued.
Material kept by the Commercial Department teacher and turned over either to the Prefect of Studies and later to the Archives or later directly to the Archives on a periodic basis.
Scope and content
The sous-fonds consists of three series of records comprising class averages, student marks, and miscellaneous. The commercial teacher administered the courses related to business functions, particularly typing, transcription, shorthand, bookkeeping, rapid calculation, office practice, secretarial, filing, correspondence, as well as religion, writing and spelling.
