The series consist of the first audited balance sheet of the Adelaide University Union signed by the Union Treasurer, E. Erskine Cleland and the Union Auditors. The document was sent to Professor Sir Angas Campbell by E.C. Padman in November 1938. Dr Harry Medlin presented the document to the University Archives along with a copy of Padman's letter in December 2004. A preservation copy of the balance sheet has been framed for exhibition.
