Given the nature and scope of the office, the Presidential records usually provide the most comprehensive source for documenting all facets of the University, including important initiatives, funding, research and teaching, college and departmental development, and faculty, staff, and student activities. Generally these records contain correspondence, reports, minutes, annual general reports of college and departmental activities, as well as some personal papers, speeches and addresses.

Bio/Historical Note: Musical performance began at the University of Saskatchewan in October 1909 with the formation of the Literary Society of the College of Arts and Science, a student group which, together with debates and lectures, organized musical numbers and variety shows for student enjoyment. It has published a collection of College songs, trained its members to sing them in concert; concocted a College Yell, and has inaugurated what will be a most important event in the future, an Oratorical and Essay contest.
