Fonds consists of records generated by North Bay Teachers' College while carrying out activities relating to the provision of post-secondary teacher education in North Bay. The fonds documents activities such as administration (including human resources and property management), admissions, and grading of students. The fonds also documents student life through yearbooks, event programs, and student magazines, as well as class reunions of college alumni. Most of the records were created or accumulated during the years of the college's existence (1909-1973), although some records (such as the alumni class reunion booklets) appear to have been added at a later date because they relate to the the college.
The fonds is arranged into six series according to documentary form or activity. Several files and items are not part of any series, as they do not relate to a common activity or share a documentary form. Records are mostly textual and principle documentary forms include registers of admissions and grades, yearbooks, academic calendars, and alumni class reunion booklets.
