- Biographical / Historical:
The first Financial Secretary for the New York State College for Teachers, Clarence Joseph Deyo, was hired in 1917 and served until approximately 1945. His position title soon changed to "Secretary-Treasurer" but "Financial Secretary" was adopted by his successors in the 1940s through 1960s: Ainard Gelbond and Benjamin Comi. This position transitioned to the Director of Business Affairs, which itself eventually came under the umbrella of the Vice President for Management and Planning as the organization of the University became more complex. The Financial Secretary (or Secretary-Treasurer) was responsible for all aspects of the College's finances: receipts and disbursements, tuition, and payroll.
