UW Record Group 1; Board of Curators Records
The Geyer Act, the same legislation that brought the University into being, created the Board of Curators of the University of Missouri in February 1839. Under the provisions of this Act, the 10th Missouri General Assembly granted the Board the power to sue and be sued, to make and use a common seal, and to purchase and hold property. They were additionally given authority to appoint a President of the University.
The University of Missouri Board of Curators has continued to preside over the day-to-day and year-to-year operation of the institution placed in its trust. The scope of its management responsibilities has grown as the University has grown: from one Campus to four and from a student body of dozens to one of tens of thousands.
