Administrative history

The Accounting Division recorded transactions in books of original entry, posted data to ledgers, summarized data in trial balance, and prepared financial statements. [Formerly known as the "Office of the City Accountant" until 1966?]

Accounting kept records by fund, e.g., capital fund, general revenue fund, sinking fund, debt charges equalization fund, and cemetery perpetual care fund.

Custodial history

Record created by Office of the City Accountant until 1966, then by "Accounting Division"

Scope and content

Series consists of 13 x 21 cm. 2-sided cards which list annual (occasionally monthly) figures for up to 40 year periods on topics, such as schools, assessments, construction, Five Year Plan, water, etc. These topics are indicated at the bottom of each card. Arranged in sections according to original arrangement. The records in this series were probably related to financial analysis, which would have been required by the head of finance (City Comptroller to 1965, then Director of Finance).
