Series 1 of the Records of the Office of the President consist of alphabetical files covering the period 1885-1913. It is
at the beginning of this period that the office assumed some independent action, separate from the Board of Regents, whose
records cover the period between the founding of the University in 1868 and 1885 (Regents' records (CU-1) held by University
Archives continue beyond this date, however). It is not until the presidency of Benjamin Ide Wheeler in 1899 that the files
assume greater importance, although even then the Regents still assumed a much more active role in the day-to-day operations
of the University.
