Biographical history

M.H. (Bill) Morfey was the College's first staff employee, hired in October 1969 as Secretary-Treasurer. His title and role changed to College Bursar shortly thereafter. Together with Principal George Wootton, Morfey was responsible for establishing the College's first education plan, hiring senior staff, and developing the first budget. Prior to joining the nascent educational institution, Morfey was an accountant with Canadian Industries Limited. He managed the College's financial affairs until his retirement in 1988. That year, the M.H. (Bill) Morfey Scholarship was created in honour of his service to the College since its very beginning.

Morfey died in January 1990.

Custodial history

Materials were transferred from the Bursar's Office.

Scope and content

Series consists of materials created or collected by Bill Morfey during the course of his duties as College Bursar. In this role, Morfey was responsible for managing the College's financial affairs. Although it is helpful to understand Morfey's recordkeeping practices through this lens, not all the materials in his files are exclusively related to College finances. Morfey also sat on numerous internal and external committees, preserving his copies of minutes and supporting documents. This series provides snapshots of various College departments, programs, and services from throughout Morfey's almost 20-year tenure at the College. Materials in this series include correspondence, memoranda, reports, flyers, brochures, contracts and agreements, course information, balance sheets, budgetary information, architectural plans, and much more.
