Administrative/Biographical history:

The founding committee of King's College London first met in 1828 and the College, instituted by Royal Charter in 1829, opened in 1831. Under the King's College London Transfer Act of 1908 the secular departments of the existing King's College London became University of London King's College on 1 January 1910, to be governed by the Senate of the University via a College Delegacy. The theological department was separated from the rest of the College, to be known as King's College London, and continued to be governed by its council. Financial records were usually compiled by the College clerks under the direction of the College Secretary.
