The Committee met often although not always with regular frequency. The Registrar chaired the Committee. It was composed of Deans and representatives of a shifting variety of faculties. It originally reported to the Senate holding meetings in the Senate Chamber. The increased volume of admissions and detail of policy required the Committee to report to the General Faculties Council. Until 1969 the Registrar served as Secretary of the General Faculties Council. In this year these duties were relinquished to the newly established Secretariat's Office.

Records of the first committee on affiliated colleges consist of the minutes of the Committee on Affiliated Colleges. The committee’s existence predates the archival records that begin in 1931. Records of this committee's successor, the Affiliated Colleges Committee, continue until 1974. Like most university admissions responsibilities, the University administered college affiliation through distributed authority across faculties, the Board of Governors, the Universities Coordinating Committee and the G.F.C.

By the 1970s several pieces of provincial legislation articulated the affiliation of colleges with universities in Alberta. The Universities Act and the Colleges Act remain the principal legislation. The role of the Universities Coordinating Council in affiliating a college with universities is described in the Universities Act, Section 60, subsection (4) and in the Colleges Act, Section 25. The role of a University with respect to affiliation of other institutions is expressed in the Universities Act, Section 34, Subsection (1). The role of the Alberta Colleges Commission with respect to coordination of post-secondary institutions is described in the Colleges Act, Section 8, and subsection (i).

The records of this sub-series consist primarily of committee minutes, interdepartmental and extra-university correspondence
concerning college affiliation, studies, tables, and published material examining the concept of affiliation between colleges and the University of Alberta.

Alberta Environment Hazardous Waste Management Committee

The files are arranged by subject matter with most media separated from their respective subject.

Specific topics focus on PCBs & Dioxins, Hazardous Waste Management, and Risk Assessment.

The Ministry of Alberta Environment appointed a Hazardous Waste Management Committee on September 14, 1979. It was composed of three civil servants and three members of the public, one of whom was Harris. The committee’s task was to classify materials of concern, including who produced them and where they were being produced. The results were compiled into a report on Hazardous Waste Management in Alberta. It recommended that an integrated waste treatment system be established in Alberta with the Alberta Government playing a leadership role in the program. Harris’ main contribution was the section entitled “Concepts of Hazards, Toxicity and Risk”, focusing on the assessment of risks. In order to study successful hazardous waste management facilities, the committee visited plants all over Europe. Public talks were held throughout the Province of Alberta, mostly by Harris, to educate the people in hopes of finding a host for the proposed treatment facility. Ryley and Swan Hills were publicly accepted by their communities to host the treatment facility. Swan Hills was chosen as the location and on December 31, 1985 Harris resigned from the committee.
