Little Sisters of Joy

Organizational records

Records document the foundation's mandate, activities, and history. They include the foundation's logo creation, "foundational statement", historic timeline, press cuttings, and newsletters.

Publications

This series includes two books written by Gila Margolin, "The Moving Swan" (2006), and "Where the Woods Meet the Water" (2014). There is one copy of the former and three copies of the latter, one in French ("La où les bois côtoient l'eau").

Gila Margolin, personal

This series is divided into two main categories:

The first contains copies of Gila Margolin's family tree (Margolin and Bergson), as well as a copy of a family photograph.

The second contains ephemera from Margolin's travels (brochures, tickets, a tote), and correspondence.

Concerts and Events

This series is divided into two main categories:

The first contains audio recordings of Gila Margolin's concerts, music sheets and lyrics from her performances, and an audio recording by Jeffrey Houghton which depicts the origins of The Little Sisters of Joy.

The second contains promotional materials from events, mainly concerts and book launches. In many cases, concerts are given in the framework of book launches.

Photographs

Photographs document Gila Margolin's travels, friends, family, and concert performances.

Photographers credited throughout. Note that Kevin Low photographed all of the prints in the album.
