Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Office of the University Registrar
The first Registrar was appointed in 1902. Previous to that time, student record-keeping was handled by the Secretary to the President. From 1905-11, there was no Registrar. From 1926-37, the duties were handled by the Assistant to the Dean of the College. The Registrar became a sub-unit of the Office of Admissions when it was established in 1946. For a list of Registrars from 1902-72, see the Historical Data Book, 1872-1972, page 73.
