Dates of existence



The position of Vice-Principal Finance began in 1965 during a reorganization of the administration of the University due to rapid growth at the time. The role of Vice-Principal Administration was examined, resulting in the transfer of all financial aspects of the University from it to form the Vice-Principal Finance position. The first Vice-Principal Finance was Lawrence G MacPherson in 1965. MacPherson retired on September 30 1971, and succeeded by David H. Bonham in October 1971. Another reorganization of the University's administration in 1976 resulted in the Vice-Principal Finance David Bonham to assume additional responsibilities for personnel and staff liaison, purchasing and food services, university information systems, and capital development and financing. In 1977, Bonham resigned and Richard J. Hand was appointed to the role. However, at this time, in order to reflect the additional responsibilities to the position, the name was changed from Vice-Principal Finances to Vice-Principal Resources.
