Payroll Records, 1926 - 1927

Identifier: Series 23

Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

This series contains payroll record cards for Northwestern University faculty, staff and administrators from the period 1904-1930. The card format is 3 x 5" pre-printed stock with spaces for individual's name, address, department, appropriations, number of payments as well as additional remarks. Each card notes a University employee's name and title, if any, and the department or building in which he or she was employed. Each employee's pay delivery address is given as well. The address may be the individual's or University department. The cards also list the employee's monthly salary and cumulative annual wages.

The last two boxes of the series contain employee salary cards from the period circa 1904-1909. These cards appear to be a fragmented record of employee pay raises. They note the name of the faculty or staff member and the year. The cards have been retained in their original order; they are not arranged by employee surname or by organizational division of the University.
