GWWD Board of Administration Minutes, 1913-1916

Minutes of the Board of Administration of the Greater Winnipeg Water District from 1913-1916. Minutes record administrative decisions made, votes taken, and motions presented. The minutes are arranged by meeting date, but some minutes are accompanied by related correspondences from earlier or later dates, as well as documents recording specific motions, cards that record how members of the board voted, and shorthand notes. Some minutes are typed while others are handwritten. The minutes were originally bound, but have been removed from their binding and placed into folders. An index is included at the beginning, with subjects arranged alphabetically pointing to numbers that correspond to numbers in the left margin of the minutes. The index was designed to be used for the entirety of the minute book and therefore does not specify which individual meeting the numbers refer to.
