University of Toronto. Chair of Ukrainian Studies

This series provides a comprehensive overview of the issues surrounding the controversy that raged between 1978 and 1980 over the filling of the newly created Chair of Ukrainian Studies at the University of Toronto. As the controversy heated up, Professor Luckyj resigned from the Search Committee in November, 1979 and opposed the appointment of the chosen candidate, Paul Magocsi. In addition to University officials and departments, most Ukrainian organizations in Canada became directly involved in or had opinions on the events as they unfolded. Amongst the latter were the the Ukrainian Students Clubs at the University of Toronto and the University of Alberta, the Ukrainian Studies Foundation, the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, and the Canadian National Youth Federation of Canada.

The records here form the complete file that was compiled by Professor Luckyj. The controversy is documented through the use of correspondence, minutes, memoranda, notes, interviews, letters to the editor, and articles in the press. Professor Luckyj has assembled a complete account of the events as portrayed in the faculty/staff and student press at the University of Toronto, the local press, and Ukrainian language papers in Canada.

In a postscript written in January, 1995 Professor Luckyj concludes that his original reservations have been borne out by subsequent events.

Complete issues of English and Ukrainian language papers that commented on the issue are stored flat in box 003.
