Overview

Minutes of the meetings of the Trustees dealing with raising and disbursing of funds, the establishment of rules and regulations and the hiring of personnel to supervise and to instruct at the Academy. Special mention is made of site location and awarding and payment of contracts for the erection of a new building. The new building was completed in 1831, located at the northeast corner of Spruce and Walnut Streets. Also mentioned are the trustee boards' decisions on acquiring property and funding for the Female Seminary and on expanding the Academy by establishing separate departments such as the library. This book is a record of the establishment and expansion of those institutions which became the basis for West Virginia University.
