Historical Note

Beginning in 1891, the Rice Institute (later University) Board of Trustees recorded minutes of their meetings, both those dealing with the Rice Institute and those concerned with operations of the Rice Land Lumber Company. The Board of Trustees meetings were held to discuss a wide range of topics, including the academic curriculum, faculty, student and campus activities, related community affairs, and other current issues with which the Board was concerned. The Minute Books of the Rice Land Lumber Company record property and management dealings undertaken by the Company.
