Birkbeck College: Estates and Premises records

Scope and Content

Most of the surviving records date from the 1950s onwards: Minutes relating to building projects (the Building Committee) and facilities and catering (the House Committee). The only early records are the Lease of the Breams Building (1888) and a 1912 inventory of equipment. However, discussion of issues regarding the acquisition and development of College buildings can be found throughout the collection - for example, in the minutes of the Governing Body, Executive Committee, Special Committees, Academic Board, and the Annual Reports.
