Scope and content

This accession consists of diaries, diplomas, research files (including fish scales), memoranda, minutes, notes, reports, photographs and, especially, correspondence, manuscripts and publications documenting Dr. Huntsman’s career as a marine biologist and an expert on the behaviour of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). The correspondence is primarily professional, centres on officials at the Biological (later Fisheries Research) Board of Canada, and colleagues (especially Thomas Goudge) at the University of Toronto and elsewhere, including Ralph W. Burhoe of the Institute on Religion in the Age of Science. There are files on numerous conferences, organizations such as the Ontario advisory committees on Lake Erie and Lake Huron fisheries, the Wood’s Hole Oceanographic Institution, the Royal Society of Canada and the Royal Lunch Club at the University of Toronto. Dr. Huntsman’s writings are primarily from his post-retirement years and centre on issues relating to fisheries research, especially the movement of salmon, and critiques of evolution.
