Post-university activities

Following graduation, Mr. Phelps was employed by Canadian General Electric from 1934 to 1942. During the first fifteen months he took the student's test course at Peterborough Works, Peterborough, and Davenport Works, Toronto, testing motors, generators, transformers, switchgear and industrial control equipment. In 1943 he moved back to Sarnia as assistant electrical engineer in the steam and power plant of the St. Clair Processing Corporation, Ltd. He remained with that company until 1947.

This series consists of test course lectures taken during 1934-1935, notes on ground detectors and distribution systems (1941-1945), and a 1946 memo on electric motors for the St. Clair Processing Corporation.

Student activities

The single file in this series consists of three campaign cards of students running for election to the University of Toronto Engineering Society and a program for a "service of worship", all undated.

Course notes

Charles Phelps, a native of Sarnia, enrolled in electrical engineering at the University of Toronto in the fall of 1930. He graduated in the spring of 1934 with a BASc.

This series contains the course notes, laboratory notes, test and final examination questions, engineering drawings, and a draft of his BASc thesis that Charles Phelps produced while a student. The arrangement is chronological.

The engineering drawings, which are from the first three years of his degree program, are stored flat in box /005.
