Scope and content
Over the course of writing the history of the University, Professor Friedland worked closely with the alumni and publicity offices to ensure that the 175th anniversary celebrations received as wide a press as possible. As a result excerpts from his book-in-progress, articles, interviews and news items appeared regularly in University publications, particularly the University of Toronto Bulletin and University of Toronto Magazine, and occasionally in local and national newspapers. He also acted as an advisor to two alumni calendars that appeared in 2001 and 2002.
As the anniversary date approached, the frequency of these appearances increased, and Professor Friedland was the guest on a number of television programs. He also travelled across Canada, and even to Berlin, Germany, to address alumni groups.
In May of 2002, he presented a paper on the writing of the history of the University to the 71st Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities in Toronto (see box /034(02) and appendix 2).
This series “contains files on…excerpts from the book, newspaper articles, TV and radio interviews, alumni events, and many other matters connected with the 175th anniversary of the University and the publication of the book” It also contains reviews of the book and some comments thereon.
The files in this series are broadly grouped into three categories and arranged chronologically within each: university publications, alumni publications and groups, and “other” addresses.
