Biographical / Historical

"You will find herewith the usual balance sheet, and a summary of current receipts and expenses for the latter part of the past year.

Instead, however, of presenting you with a statement of the invested funds, which would largely be a repetition of what was given in my report to you of last June, I have requested Assistant Treasurer Mears to prepare the accompanying tables of information regarding the real estate held by the College.

[P]lacing the facts before you, I will ask you to consider them carefully, and give me the benefit of your suggestions with reference to the investments, which you have of late left so largely to me."

[D. A. Knowlton, Treasurer, from the 1891 report]

Early reports published twice a year in January and June.

1890-1901 titled "Treasurer's Statements for the Board of Trustees." From 1902 titled "Annual Report of the Treasurer to the Board of Trustees."
