Minute Book

Scope and Content

Also contains agenda for meetings, balance sheets and various secretary's reports. Discussions of salaries and gradings, superannuation, membership, and appointment of officers for the next session are recurring issues within the minutes. The Council also appears to discuss any concerns raised in, or reports prepared by, individual Committee meetings or by specific members. However, often only brief details of these discussions are noted in the minutes. An exception are those minutes dated 24 May 1939, which provide fairly detailed notes on the proposed changes to the Constitution of the Executive Committee within the Manchester branch of the Association. The volume also includes the minutes of a series of Extraordinary General Meetings, dated 2 June 1943 - 26 January 1944. These detail Manchester's concerns regarding the draft Report on University Development as prepared by the central AUT and issued formally in 1944 and 1945.
