Photographs

The photographs in this series document portions of Dr. Solandt’s life. There are a half dozen spanning the years 1949 to 1978, and there is one studio photograph of Andrew Lawrence (Laurie) Chute, a former fellow medical student at the University of Toronto and colleague in wartime Britain. There are two folders of colour photoprints by David Grenville of Dr. Solandt at his residence, the Wolfe Den, near Bolton, Ontario and of his last visit in August1986 to his ancestral haunts at Inverness, Megantic County, in the Eastern Townships of Quebec.

Addresses

Dr. Solandt was much in demand as a public speaker, especially with professional, service, and educational organizations and groups. Often he served as a keynote speaker or, especially in later years, as an “after dinner” speaker.

The records in this series consist of notes on cards for addresses, covering correspondence for and typed drafts of speeches given. There are approximately 350 in total and the arrangement of them is chronological. They comprise the bulk of Dr. Solandt’s addresses that have survived; the remainder can be found within the Omond Solandt fonds, especially in accessions B1993-0041/002 and B1994-0020/002(05)-(30). Others are scattered here and there elsewhere in other series in these and other accessions in the fonds.

Solandt Symposium

The Solandt Symposium on Organizing and Managing the Practical Application of Science to Problems in War and Peace was held in Kingston, Ontario from 8-10 May 1994. Its purpose was to honour and celebrate Dr. Solandt and his achievements relating to various aspects of science and technology and, in particular, operational research.

The files contain correspondence and notes regarding various aspects of organizing the conference, along with minutes of the organizing committee; budget and funding information; files on participants, session chairs and speakers; the programme; files relating to the publication and distribution of the proceedings, and a copy of the published proceedings, Perspectives in science and technology: the legacy of Omond Solandt.

Manuscripts and publications

Dr. Solandt’s very busy schedule as an administrator, often juggling more than one activity at a time, meant that he did not have time to write a large number of articles or reports for publication. The titles in this series comprise a small portion of his output. Most of his manuscripts and publications can be found in two accessions (B1993-0041/002-005, and B1994-0020/003 and 004) in the Omond McKillop Solandt fonds, to which these titles have been compared to eliminate duplication. The files contain a combination of drafts, offprints and covering correspondence.
