Scope and Content

The volume starts at the 494th ordinary general meeting and ends with the 852nd ordinary general meeting. The minute book is marked as 'volume two', though there are no other volumes in the archive. The ordinary general meetings informed members of the candidates who had been elected to The Victoria Institute between meetings. Meetings were also responsible for presenting papers to members to read and discuss at the meetings.

The annual general meeting briefly amended its name to 'annual business meeting' in 1917. It was attended by members, associates and friends. It reviewed the annual report and annual accounts.

Special meetings were held regarding topics such as amendments to The Victoria Institute's Constitution and the fiftieth anniversary of the first general meeting.
