Scope and Content Note

This Sub-Group contains records created or received by the University of Missouri Board of Curators. Included are a handwritten ledger entitled "By-Laws and General Orders, 1840-1907," as well as published booklets of "By-Laws and Statutes" of the University of Missouri. The By-Laws address matters such as the number and dates of Board of Curators meetings, the order of business at the meetings, the duties and authority of the university president, and student issues such as discipline, absences, examinations, and degrees.
Note to Researcher: According to the Board of Curator's Office, the By-Laws are no longer published as a booklet but are kept current in the Collected Rules and Regulations of the University. For a full inventory of Faculty By-Laws, see Record Group 2 UW, Sub-Group 2. For more compilations of rules and regulations, see Record Group 1 UW, Sub-Group 6, Series 4.
