University of Toronto. Department of Zoology

This accession is a collection of teaching charts used by the Department of Zoology from the 1940s through to the 1970s. Measuring on average 120 cm x 180 cm, most of the charts are paintings by in-house artists James Bray and Irene Nosyk. The paintings were either based on original renderings from microscopic views or laboratory samples or were copied from printed charts and published illustrations.

A card index created by the Department of Zoology was also transferred with the collection and has served, along with information printed in on the original charts, to describe each item.

This accession also includes digital photographs documenting the Special Presentation event with Irene Nosyk at the former Zoology Charts Room, Sept. 6 2007 (photographer: Norm Hatton)
