Betty I. Roots fonds

  • UTA 1719
  • Fonds
  • 1941-2015

This fonds contains records related to the teaching, researching and publishing activities of Dr. Betty I. Roots, biologist and professor at the University of Toronto. The series documenting Dr. Roots’ research is by far the largest, with smaller series documenting her involvement with professional associations and committees, her roles as a peer editor and reviewer, as well as a supervisor of her graduate students, her addresses, the courses she taught, her correspondence and her early education. There is also a relatively large amount of material documenting her administrative activities within the University of Toronto.

Records include correspondence, notebooks, research data, manuscripts, lecture notes, prints, and reports.

The material covers almost exclusively her professional roles with very little personal material of any kind. Of this material, most of it documents her researching and publishing pursuits.

Roots, Betty I.

Biographical and early education

The series consists of Dr. Roots’ biographical and personal records. The biographical record consists of the drafting of her CV, a biographical entry for a zoology graduate brochure, annual activity reports and employment and career-related correspondence. Her personal records are rather limited and solely consist of her educational records dating from high school. This material reflects Dr. Root’s personal background and a summary of her academic professional career.

Correspondence

Series contains letters written to and from Dr. Roots. The correspondence is professional in nature and pertains to her years at the University of Toronto. The letters primarily reflect on the subject of research, publications, addresses, and appraisal and references for students, colleagues, and journals.

Correspondence can also be found throughout the other series of this fonds, filed with the material about which the correspondence pertains.
