Academic activity files

This series contains documents pulled together by Prof. Armatage for her tenure review as well as for subsequent yearly reviews. Files contain mainly professional correspondence, descriptive reports on research and teaching activities, yearly activity reports and clippings about her work. There is information on promotions, awards, research leaves and grants. Clippings in this series also give evidence to Prof. Armatage’s work outside mainstream academia including her role as a documentary filmmaker and curator for the Toronto International Film Festival.

Accession B1982-0023 records in this series cover the period between 1923 and 1960, with particular depth of coverage in the 1940s and 1950s. The series includes two photographs of Camp Wardens from a Gathering in April 1946.

While B1995-0040 also includes several files of reports on meetings of special subcommittees, such as the Ad Hoc Committee on the Wording of the Ritual and the Admissions Committee, other meeting minutes will be found in the general correspondence files of Series 5. The records from B1995-0040/001 in this series range between 1960 and 1994, with significant gaps in the late 1960s and early 1990s. Accession B2009-0029 contains nearly complete Camp One meeting minutes from 1950-2008. Files in this series have been arranged in chronological order.

Textual records and photographs

This series contains course notes, correspondence, addresses, articles, manuscripts, notes, minutes, and photographs relating to the activities of Thom Greenfield as a professor of educational administration at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education and as a gay activist, especially in relation to "Gay Fathers of Toronto", of which he was one of the founders.

Professional associations and conferences

This series consists of files on organizations, conferences, symposia and workshops, arranged alphabetically. The most thoroughly documented ones are those in which Professor McLeod was involved in an organizational or executive capacity. The earliest files document his involvement in multicultural issues in Saskatchewan, specifically problems associated with language instruction in French. They contain correspondence, notes, briefs submitted to the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism and to the Saskatchewan Committee on Instruction in Languages other than English, associated
reports, and a seminar on bilingual education (1964-1966). Later, in Ontario, his overlapping duties as chair of the Ontario Multicultural Education Conference Committee (1980-1983) and president of the Canadian Council for Multicultural and Intercultural Education (1981-1985), for example, enabled him to play a central role in organizing the early national conferences on multicultural education. He organized and chaired two colloquiums on “Multiculturalism – Teaching and Learning”, sponsored by FEUT (1990, 1991), and was a co-organizer of the International Colloquium on Ethnicity, Conflict and Cooperation held in Moscow in 1992. McLeod also attended a number of international conferences as a Canadian representative. These include four (1977-1987) world congresses of the Comparative and International Education Association, and the Circumpolar Conference of Indigenous People in Iceland (1993).

McLeod was involved in an executive capacity in many organizations, the files for which contain the correspondence, notes and memoranda, minutes and reports that reveal the extent of his involvement. The principal bodies, for which there is extensive documentation, are the Canadian Association for Second Language Teachers (CASALT), Canadian Ethnic Studies Association (CESA), Canadian Council for Multicultural and Intercultural Education (CCMIE), Canadian History of Education Association (CHEA), Multicultural Health Coalition (MHC), the Multiculturalism and Aging Seniors Coordinating Committee (MASCC), and the Ontario Multicultural Association (OMAMO). He was also frequently asked to advise governments on policy. He gave, for example, evidence to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Multiculturalism and served on the Ontario Advisory Committee on Multiculturalism.

University of Toronto. Administrative files

The records in this series document Professor McLeod’s activities in the Faculty of Education between 1975 and 1996, his other administrative duties throughout the University, and his visiting professorship at the Université de Montréal (1990). The first files relate to his involvement in University affairs outside the Faculty of Education, especially the Centre for Health Promotion and the Salary, Tenure and Personnel Committee. His curriculum vitae and his “professional data files”, document annually his professional activities from 1975 to 1994. His activities are also revealed in his appointment books (1989-1995) and planning calendars (1990-1995), which are to be found in B1996-0030 except for the last year where the reader should consult Series 1 of B1999-0013.

The administrative records themselves begin with a series of files (1975-1996) containing general correspondence, minutes, and memoranda, relating primarily to issues in the Faculty of Education. The earliest of the files dealing with specific activities and issues is a major review of the Faculty in 1975. This sets the tone for the remaining files that address primarily issues relating to the changing nature of the curriculum and periodic administrative reorganizations. There are proposals for a staff exchange program with and a Faculty of Education/PACE Initiative in the West Indies, and a Black Canadian teacher education fellowship program. Other files cover such experiments as the voluntary induction project in the Secondary Integrated Program and a two-year pilot project for the Masters/Teachers certification program. The challenges posed by the changing nature of Canadian society are reflected in files that include the Multicultural and Education Research and Development Group, a multicultural early childhood project, a multicultural family studies project, anti-racism workshops, the seniors class, and a student group, Teachers Interested in Education for Diversity (TIED).

Two major administrative/program reorganizations are documented in this series. From 1991 to 1994 Professor McLeod chaired the BEd/OTC (Ontario Teachers College) Restructuring Committee, which recommended changes to the teachers’ education program, including the introduction of a Masters of Education in Teaching and Learning program. The other development was the merger of the Faculty of Education and OISE, following an agreement signed in November 1994 between the University and OISE. An Academic Integration Task Force began meeting in March 1995 and McLeod played an active role in its deliberations. A report, “An academic plan for OISE/UT”, was submitted the following January. There is also a report by Vendra Masemann, ‘Dealing with diversity: needs assessment of the Faculty of Education, University of Toronto,’ completed in May 1995. Additional files document McLeod’s three-year term on the Academic Board of the Governing Council, to which he was elected in 1993.

The records contain correspondence, memoranda, minutes and reports. The arrangement generally is chronological within each type of activity. The files on general correspondence, BEd/OTC Restructuring Committee, FEUT/OISE merger, and the Academic Board are grouped separately and in the order described above.

Professor McLeod’s planning calendars have been filed in B1996-0030/030(02).

Manuscripts and publications

Over the years Professor McLeod initiated a number of book proposals (mostly edited), a few of which were realized. Some that were not are also documented here. He also wrote a number of articles and compiled bibliographies and chronologies. This series also contains many of his editorials from Multiculturalism, and his book reviews, but letters asking him to review books are mostly filed in Series 1, with a few in Series 4.

Most of the titles in this series are in manuscript form, often with accompanying correspondence and notes. There are more manuscripts for articles than for books. The manuscripts are arranged, within each accession, in chronological order of publication date and by the date written, if not published. The articles document his principal interests – multicultural education and health – though his wider interests are also reflected, as in “Josiah Wedgwood and the potter’s art.” There is also a file on the second issue of the Journal of Ethno-Development, which McLeod co-edited. There are whole or partial drafts of several books, two of which are untitled, but including Aboriginal Languages and Education (1988) and Health and Culture: exploring the relationships (1993). There is also a file on the production of his video, ‘Putting it all together’ (1991), and drafts of ‘The multicultural experience at FEUT’ (1995-1996) (both in B1997-0013/002 and 003). The series concludes with a typescript of Guiseppe Masi’s autobiographical Like a Dream: as short story of my life.

Addresses

Only a few addresses are represented in this series. Other addresses are filed largely in Series 5 with the conferences and other events with which they are associated.

Teaching files and lecture notes

The series begins with background files for teaching that Professor McLeod assembled over the years on multicultural education, race relations and racism, Philippe Rushton, and teachers’ education.

The files in this series contain course outlines for most of the courses taught in the two departments, which Professor McLeod headed, but the emphasis is on the courses that he himself taught. Most of his courses were offered at the Ontario School of Education/
Faculty of Education, with a few graduate ones at OISE. There are two files (in B1997-0018) on a graduate seminar in cross-cultural education that McLeod gave at the University of Manitoba in 1976-1977.

The principal course that McLeod taught were the history/development of Canadian education, cross-cultural education, multiculturalism in education (including summer courses), English as a second language, the process of becoming a teacher, and adult education, all at the Faculty of Education. Courses given by McLeod at OISE include problems in Canadian education and the sociology of minority groups. In the early 1990s, there is extensive material on the evolution of the primary/junior options program in elementary education, and from 1991 on the emphasis is on developing courses in the new Department of Policy and Foundation Studies. New programs in adult education, in particular, were developed. In 1989-1990, McLeod taught a night school course in multiculturalism to ESL students in the Region of Peel.

The files contain course registrations and lists of students, course outlines and bibliographies numerous notes, some lecture notes, some term papers, and exams.

Professional activities

The files in this series relate almost wholly to the journal, Multiculturalism, which Professor McLeod founded in 1977 and of which he was the editor until the autumn of 1993. From 1984, to make the journal more inclusive, the editorial in each issue was translated into French and information about some of the writers and précis of the articles were written in French.

The files, which begin with his initial proposals in 1976, contain correspondence and notes regarding the founding of the journal, some financial records, a readership survey, correspondence and notes relating to manuscripts submitted, along with a selection of the latter (most of which were rejected, with reasons given). Although few were signed, Professor McLeod wrote all the editorials for Multiculturalism except for a few written by the associate editor or members of the editorial board [for example, IV, 1 (1980) and XIV, 2/3 (1992)] and by guest editors [such as II, 4 (1979), III, 4 (1980), IV, 2 (1980)]. Many of these editorials are found in Series 6: Manuscripts and publications.

There is also a file on Professor McLeod’s editing of the 2nd issue of the Journal of Ethno-Development (1992) and another on assessments of book manuscripts.

Personal files and correspondence

This series begins with lists compiled by Professor McLeod on the general contents of his personal papers and a photograph index (most of the images from which are not in this fonds), and of the contents of his computer disks. There is also a daybook for 1995 and a desk calendar for 1994-1995. These items are all in B1999-0013/001; the desk calendar is filed separately as B1999-0013/029(09).

The correspondence in this series is primarily of a professional nature and is divided into several lots. There are several files of general and professional correspondence (1976-1996) in B1999-0013. B1996-0030 contains thank you letters for addresses given to clubs and community organizations, an application by McLeod for a position at the University of Western Ontario, requests by publishers for to assess the merits of book proposals, and letters of reference (1982-1995).

Other professional activities

Dr. Hastings’ professional activities are largely related to his interests in community medicine and often have close links to his work at the University of Toronto. The files are arranged alphabetically by the name of the organization or event with which they are most closely associated.

The series begins with a file on his participation in a round table discussion on “surveillance and the role of public health” for the Commission of Inquiry on the Blood System in Canada [Krever Commission] in 1995. This is followed by background material for and memoranda, statements and briefs, with which Dr. Hastings was involved, that were submitted to the Royal Commission on Health Services between 1961 and 1963, along with subsequent press coverage. He and Dr. William Mosley of the School of Hygiene submitted a massive report, “Organized community health services” in 1963, following a brief, drafts of which are preserved here, presented by the School’s director, Dr. Andrew Rhodes, the previous year.

Hastings was also a member of committees of the Canadian Public Health Association and the United Church of Canada that submitted briefs in 1962.

Other files document Dr. Hastings’ activities with Canadian College of Health Service Executives, for which he chaired the Extendicare Award Selection Committee for 1984-1986; in the mid-1980s, the Canadian Council on Social Development, for which he helped develop strategies for community health services, and the Canadian Hospital Association, for which he participated in a study on the future of hospitals in Canada.

Dr. Hastings was made an honorary life member of the Canadian Public Health Association for his many contributions. The files (boxes 036-038) document his activities as a president (1996-1997), as a member of its board of directors and several committees, including public health practices, archives, higher education and, especially, international health secretariat and review (1988-1992) and a planning committee for a national workshop on public health education (1991). There is a substantial file on the drafting of a national health plan for the Palestinian people (1993). Other files include the restructuring of Ontario health services (1997), the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, and the Association’s annual conferences for 1980 and from 1991 to 2000. There are also a number of briefs and reports.

The files on the Canadian Welfare Council document the activities of its special committee on health services’ submissions to the Royal Commission on Health Services. These are followed by files on health issues faced by the City of Toronto in 1992 and 2002; Dr. Hastings had been a member of the liaison committees of the University of Toronto with the teaching health units for East York, North York and the City of Toronto.

In 1971 Dr. Hastings went on full-time leave for a year from the University of Toronto to direct a major study of a community health centre project for the Conference of Health Ministers of Canada. His files (boxes 039-041) include correspondence, memoranda, notes, budgets, position papers, minutes of meetings, interim and progress reports, and working seminars, along with drafts of the final report and reactions to it. The report, instantly dubbed “The Hastings Report”, was widely praised and cemented Dr. Hastings’ reputation as a leading authority in his field.

Other activities documented in this series include two conferences on epidemiology, one in Cali, Columbia during his tour of public health services in South America in 1959 and the other a joint National Cancer Institute of Canada/U of T meeting in 1988. There are files for conferences on comparative health services at Ditchley, England (1972) and Dublin (1980), and for consulting on health administration for the Informatie en Communicatie Unie in the Netherlands (1981) and the Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital (1992). There is also a copy of an undated (ca. 1976) and unpublished report on an overview of the Canadian health system.

Dr. Hastings’ association with the Pan American Health Organization dates from the 1960s. Late in 1964 he was a participant in a special program on health planning sponsored by the World Health Organization, the PAHO and the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America, for which he visited Chile, Uruguay and Argentina, already referred to in Series 3. The files here date largely from 1974, when he critiqued a long-term planning report for the WHO, and his consultancy two years later for that organization on health services in Brazil and Chile. This and other work lead to him receiving the PAHO Administration Award for 1987. The majority of the PAHO files relate to the Canadian-Caribbean Health Initiative (boxes 042-044), a joint PAHO/University of Toronto/CPHA project for which, from its inception in 1988, Dr. Hastings served as chair of the steering committee. There are also files relating to the Caribbean Public Health Association and the Caribbean Regional Epidemiology Centre.

Dr. Hastings acted as a consultant and expert on many issues relating to community health, including two in Quebec -- programs in community health (1980) and the Quebec Commission de l’Enquéte sur les Services Santé (1987), and pediatric issues for the Thames Valley District Health Council (1988). One of his early research projects (1966-1970) was a joint Canada-WHO study of the delivery of health services in Sault Ste. Marie, due to the then unique program in Canada of Algoma Steel Corporation offering its employees a choice of health benefits through the local district health association or a private carrier. The findings were published in 1973, a follow-up study was carried out by the Ontario Ministry of Health in 1975, and a history of the Sault Ste. Marie and District Group Health Association followed in 1981.

In 1992 Dr. Hastings was invited to address a seminar on heath care systems organized by the Mexican Foundation for Health and the National Academy of Medicine, to be held the
following March in Mexico City. He kept extensive files on the proceedings. In 1994 he was invited to be a consultant to the World Bank’s health project for the newly independent republic of Georgia. He visited the country on three occasions over the next two years and kept detailed files on his activities, including correspondence, notes, reports, and photographs.

The series ends with several activities related to Dr. Hastings’ travels in the 1950s and the early 1960s to Asia, and to his involvement with the World Health Organization both at the beginning and the end of his career. In 1953, on the way back to Canada from the his World University Service trip to India (see Series 3 and below), he stopped off in Britain to attend the first World Conference on Medical Education in London, to take in the Queen’s coronation, and to visit Scotland, especially Edinburgh and Iona. He kept a file on this conference and on the third world conference in New Delhi in 1966, after which he toured northern India, making a side trip to Madras and Ludhiana, and then going on to Hong Kong and Japan.

In 1960 a World Health Organization travel fellowship enabled Dr. Hastings to study medical care, public health and the teaching of social medicine in the United Kingdom, Scandinavia, the USSR, India, Ceylon, Singapore, and Japan. Again, he kept detailed records of his travels, including notes and accounts of his impressions, especially on the Soviet Union. Afterwards, he wrote a detailed report on what he saw. Later WHO –related activities include an employment offer as chief of WHO’s Organization of Medical Care Unit in Geneva (1969), which Dr. Hastings reluctantly turned down; and his work as member of WHO’s Expert Advisory Panel on Public Health Administration between 1974 and 1990.

In the summer of 1953, as the University of Toronto’s representative at the World University Service International Mysore Seminar, Dr. Hastings had an opportunity to gain first hand insights into and an understanding of the many problems facing developing countries. He visited India, Ceylon and Pakistan, and carefully preserved his correspondence, notes, reports and photographs. Two years later, he was the University’s faculty member on the WUS International Japan Seminar, and spent a further month studying medical education and medical care in Japan through an arrangement with the World Health Organization. His correspondence, diaries, minutes of meetings, and notes served him well; he was much in demand on the lecture circuit afterwards, especially after his report on medical education in Japan and other articles reflecting on his experiences appeared in 1956 and 1957. The series ends with a 1962 report on the WUS student tuberculosis sanatorium in Japan and a file on the WUS Chile Seminar in 1964.

Diaries

Series consists of Adena Black's diaries from 1913-1918, from the time of her marriage to Davidson Black through the First World War.

Publications and addresses

This series documents only one of Davidson Black’s publications, but more of his addresses, in particular some he delivered in 1925 before his discovery of Peking Man, and the Croonian Lecture in December 1932 that cemented the acceptance of his research.

Employment

Except for photographs, this series contains little documentation on Davidson Black’s employment before 1917 when he enlisted with the Canadian Army Medical Corps and went overseas. The bulk of this series relates to his work in China at the Peking Union Medical College, his anthropological research including his discovery of "Peking man", and his travels within China and to Mongolia, India, Siam, and elsewhere.

The files contain correspondence, photographs, addresses, and publications (including some drafts), and memorabilia. Most of the photographs were taken by Dr. Black himself, though some were taken by Adena and others (especially presentation copies) by friends and colleagues. Dr. Black carefully annotated many of the photos he took, often in considerable detail even to the time of day and the shutter speed used. Included are a few glass-plate negatives and about 50 lantern slides. The negatives are usually dated and were kept except if they were in good condition. On his travels, Dr. Black collected autographed photographs of many of the scientists and academics he met; these are included in this series.

Education

This series contains certificates and diplomas, correspondence, course and lab notes, term papers and memorabilia documenting aspects of Davidson Black’s education, running from the Wellesley School through Harbord Collegiate and the Faculties of Medicine and Arts at the University of Toronto. There is also a file on Davidson’s summer project in 1907 to earn money for his Bachelor of Arts program, prospecting in the Temagami Forest Reserve.

Correspondence

There are two correspondents with Davidson Black in this series: his mother, Margaret, and, especially, his wife, Adena. There are large gaps in the letters received from his mother. There are scattered letters for the years 1905, 1908, 1912 and 1920. A substantial number exist only for the years 1921 to 1927.

More of Adena’s letters to Davidson have survived. In the early years of their relationship, she numbered her letters; 95 numbered ones (along with several unnumbered ones and postcards) were written between 24 July 1912 and the end of 1913. Only one, #80, is missing here. After their marriage, the number of letters Adena wrote to Davidson fell off sharply, but not as sharply as the gaps in this series would indicate.
