St. Ann's Academy (Victoria, B.C.) fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1858-1975

The fonds consists of textual records of the St. Ann's Academy local house, including four sous-fonds. The first two belong to the Superior and the Bursar; the third was generated by the Commercial Department of the school; and the fourth belongs to the Treasurer who kept the accounts of the St. Ann's Secondary School next door to the Academy in the 1960s and 1970s. Each of these officers maintained records in the course of their respective duties until the Academy and secondary school were finally closed and all activities ceased by 1975. Given that the primary function of this local house was education, the fonds consists mainly of school records as well as some house accounts, and other records. The school records and even general house records tend to follow the pattern of the school year from August/September to June/July. Records divide into series and sometimes subseries of files. They include account books known by their French name comptes-rendus, student registers, receipts and expenses, boarders' accounts, commercial accounts, day scholar accounts, payroll ledgers, council minutes, names and addresses of students, alumni records, and other miscellaneous material.
