The fonds consists of records generated by both the Dept. of University Extension (1936-1969) and its predecessor, the Extension Lectures Committee (1918-1935).

The fonds has been arranged into the following series: Extension Lectures Committee; Department annual reports; general
records; professional and vocational education; the humanities and summer school; evening classes, lectures and correspondence courses; supporting services; pamphlets, brochures and course material; and Selman's own research notes. The fonds also includes a large number of photographs primarily from the 1950s and 1960s which depict campus events as well as people and buildings, as well as audio recordings of lectures and other events.

Registrar's Office fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1907 - 2003

The fonds consists of records dating from 1907 to 2003, which provide a unique source of information particularly about student‐related matters such as grades, university admission, graduation and examinations. In addition to records generated by the Registrarʹs Office itself, there are also Faculty records (1915‐1921) which were probably maintained by the Registrar who served as the secretary to Senate. The records have been largely retained in their physical order in which they were acquired ‐ as a result, records from different series are often inter‐filed together, making it difficult to distinguish them with any accuracy. The records on microfilm include correspondence, student registration cards, academic records, and information on scholarships and bursaries dating from 1913 to 1968. The Registrarʹs Office also collected copies of student examinations. In 1993 copies of student examinations from 1915 to 1969 were microfilmed and the originals destroyed.
