Biographical history

Alberta College South originated in 1909 as a theological department within Alberta College, a liberal arts college that was established in 1903 by The Methodist Church. In 1910, Alberta College South obtained a building site on the new University of Alberta campus and subsequently established itself as a theological college of The Methodist Church. To distinguish the two sites after 1909, the original College site north of the river became known as Alberta College North. Alberta College South continued to exist until 1925, when The Methodist Church united with The Presbyterian Church in Canada and The Congregational Churches of Canada to form The United Church of Canada. At Union, Alberta College South merged with its Presbyterian counterpart, Robertson College to form United Theological College. From 1925 to 1927, the united college functioned as one, although it maintained the two separate college boards. In 1927, the two boards united as one, and the college was re-named St. Stephen's College, which was incorporated in April, 1927.

Custodial history

These records were acquired sometime prior to 1975; however, there is no surviving record as to exactly how, when or from whom the Conference Archives came to possess the records. In 1975, the Conference entered into a permanent loan agreement with The Provincial Archives of Alberta for the physical custody and control of the holdings of the Conference Archives and the records were relocated to the PAA in that same year. The records currently reside at the PAA

Scope and content

The fonds consists of student account ledgers, 1919-1922.
