(110 ILCS 305/5) (from Ch. 144, par. 26)
Sec. 5. At the first, and at each biennial meeting thereafter, it shall be the duty of the board to appoint a treasurer, who shall not be a member of the board, and who shall give bonds, with such security as the board of trustees shall deem amply sufficient to guard the University from danger of loss or diminution of the funds intrusted to his care. The trustees may appoint, also, the corresponding secretary, whose duty it shall be, under the direction or with the approval of the trustees, to issue circulars, directions for procuring needful materials for conducting experiments, and eliciting instructive information from persons in various counties, selected for that purpose, and skilled in any branch of agricultural, mechanical and industrial art; and to do all other acts needful to enable him to prepare such reports and financial statements regarding the University and its departments as may from time to time be required by law or by action of the board of trustees. The trustees may appoint, also, a recording secretary, whose duty it shall be to keep faithful record of the transactions of the board of trustees, and prepare the same for publication in a biennial report. The treasurer and the corresponding and recording secretaries shall receive such compensation as the trustees may fix, to be paid in the same manner as the teachers and other employees of the University are paid.
