The Victoria Settlement for women was founded in 1897, at a time when there were many such institutions in major cities. Elizabeth Macadam, after experience in London, became Warden in 1903, with Eleanor Rathbone as Honorary Secretary. The University has made a financial contribution to the Victoria Settlement for a number of years (see Finance Committee, 9 May 1978 Minute 167 and 4 December 1979 Minute 54).

Victoria Settlement Committee (15 January 1917 - 20 March 1961)

Reference D45/1
Physical Description 16 volumes

Scope and Content

Later entitled the Executive Committee, later still the Holding Committee and the Victoria Settlement Council (whose functions were taken over by the Victoria Settlement Advisory Council, which was responsible to the Executive Committee).

The 1st Report of the Settlement published the regulations drawn up by the Committee; these Regulations state that the General Committee was to meet four times a year and imply that this Committee was the supreme governing body - apart from the Trustees - of the Settlement from its commencement. This Committee was entitled the Settlement Executive Committee from the Minutes of the meeting of 3 June 1929 onwards though it would appear from the Reports to have been so called for one or two years previously. The Executive Committee was replaced by the Holding Committee in 1947: this latter Committee remained in being until in 1970-71 it was transformed into "the Council."

The Settlement Council was established in 1921 and would appear to have been a representative body receiving reports on the activities of the Settlement and making recommendations. The Council was transformed in 1932 into the Advisory Council, a representative body responsible to the Executive Committee. It would appear the Council ceased to function in 1940.
