The Arts Council first proposed a pension scheme in 1946, and it came into force on Jan 1 1947, arranged in conjunction with The Standard Life Assurance Company. It was set up by Mr E.L.Horn, the Council's Accounting Officer and administered by four appointed Trustees.
Mr G.M. Harrison, whose titles with the Council included Chief Administration Officer, Establishment Officer and Pensions Executive, administered the scheme during the 1960s, 70s and 80s.
The series incorporates the working papers of the scheme. It includes papers relating to the setting up of the scheme in the 1940s, general correspondence, re-costing reports, certificates, withdrawal and transfer papers, individuals' records and a deposit account book, a journal and ledger.
These files are arranged chronologically, according to the numerical order (1 to 18) with which they were originally labelled. There is also one box of oversized material.
No list of the individual files in this series is currently available.
