Series V: Translation Center, 1972-1994

Series V contains administrative files from the Translation Center. The series has been divided into two subseries: General and Bound Issues.

Subseries V.1: General, 1972-1994

The bulk of subseries 1 consists of files related to the awards that the Center grants annually. These are both general awards and language-specific. The files contain submissions, correspondence with accompanying documentation, and financial records. There are also quite a number files pertaining to the board such as meeting minutes, correspondence, nominations, and recommendations. Of particular interest are the records concerning the creation and development of the Translation Center's bi-annual publication, Translation: submissions with comments from the staff, budgets detailing every item, from the printing of the physical item to the celebratory party thrown at the end, and sample photographs and drawings, and mock-ups of the final issue.
