Membership and Board of Directors' meetings

Sub-series consists of notification of meetings, agendas, minutes, reports from committees (including budgets and other financial statements), proposals, forms updating the officers and directors, and other materials prepared for meetings of the New Catholic Times membership, including the annual meeting of the Board of Directors.

From 1976 to 1989, members referred to themselves as "the collective" and meetings, held approximately bi-weekly, were called Collective meetings. The annual meeting of the Board of Directors usually occurred in January or February. Records for Collective meetings for the years 1978 and 1979 are absent, as indicated on post-it notes in the records for 1980 and 1977. From 1990 on, members referred themselves as "the membership" and Membership meetings were held twice a year, with the business conducted at the fall meeting. Records for membership meetings after 1999 do not exist, though see sub-series 2 for records pertaining to meetings of the Publishing Group.

File also includes carbon copies of letters from Leddy to staff at other publications (both Catholic and secular) regarding the use or exchange of features, columns, and photographs or the exchange of subscriptions, and carbon copies of letters from Leddy to Members of Parliament and one to Prime Minister Trudeau regarding aboriginal treaty rights. Original incoming correspondence is included with most of the letters.

G.K. Chesterton Archival Collection

  • CA ON00389 C1
  • Collection
  • 1888-1978

The collection consists of manuscripts of many published works, illustrations from Chesterton's time at the Slade School of Art and later, correspondence with family and friends, and albums of press clippings. There are also microfiche copies of the papers of Chesterton's wife Frances (1875-1938), including her plays and poems. Additionally, the collection contains material added by Dorothy Collins after Chesterton's death.
In addition to the Chesterton papers on microfiche the G.K. Chesterton Archival Collection contains 10 original illustrations as well as one of Chesterton's sketchbooks. Most of the sketches date from his period at the Slade School of Art, but there are several from earlier.
The Papers of Monsignor John O'Connor (1870-1952) are also a part of the G.K. Chesterton Archival Collection. Monsignor O'Connor was the Catholic priest who became the model for Chesterton's character "Father Brown". In February 1903 O'Connor wrote to Chesterton, and the following year they formed an immediate bond of friendship which was to last more than thirty years. In 1921 O'Connor was present at Chesterton's reception into the Catholic Church. The papers of Monsignor O'Connor include a number of manuscripts of his poems and essays, Christmas greetings from the Chesterton's, personal letters, and newspaper clippings by and about Chesterton.

donated for the project. File #2 contains donation agreements for private French donors. The dates of these
forms range from 1974 to 1988. File #3 contains an inventory of French libraries and journals that were
visited throughout the course of the project. File #4 is a collection of references cards that outline the
different public and private institutions that donated documents or letters to the project. These cards outline
the name of the institution or figure, location, and a listing of the letters donated to the project.

Files: 5-18

These files consist of records created and maintained by the Zola Research Program staff throughout the life
of the project. Types of records found in these files include publicity and marketing documents (including
some newspaper articles), various summaries of the project, funding and budgeting documents, salary, benefits
and stipend forms, mail order lists, book orders for the Joseph Sablé Centre for 19th century French Studies
(post-project) and graduate student profiles.

Files: 45-54

These files consist of photocopies of handwritten letters as well as handwritten and typed transcriptions of
letters sent by Émile Zola to various correspondents between January of 1878 and December of 1879.
Recurring correspondents include Henry Céard, Léon Hennique, Gustave Flaubert, Ivan Tourgueniev,
Philippe Solari and Numa Coste. The contents of the letters are both personal and professional. Contained
with these files are discussions of Zola’s works including L’Attaque du Moulin, Une Page d’amour and early
discussions on Nana.

Files: 55-69

These files consist of photocopies of handwritten letters as well as handwritten and typed transcriptions of
letters sent by Émile Zola to various correspondents between January of 1880 and December of 1882.
Recurring correspondents include Henry Céard, Léon Hennique, Gustave Flaubert, Ivan Tourgueniev,
Philippe Solari and Numa Coste. Included in these files are discussions of Zola’s works Nana and Pot-Bouille.
As well, the letters discuss the death of both Gustave Flaubert (as seen in a letter to Céard, dated May 9, 1880,
in File #56) and Émilie Zola, Émile Zola’s mother (as seen in a letter to Zola’s uncle, Jules Aubert, dated
October 18, 1880, in File #58).

Files: 70-79

These files consist of photocopies of letters, postcards and cartes de visites and typed/handwritten
transcriptions of correspondence sent by Émile Zola between January of 1883 and December of 1884.
Recurring correspondents include Antoine Guillemet, Alphonse Daudet, Ernst Kiegler, Henry Céard,
Edmond de Goncourt, Georges Charpentier, Jacques van Santen Kolff and various family members (Amélie
Laborde, Lina Laborde, etc.). The contents of the box are both personal and professional in nature; there is
repeated discussion of lunches and dinners at the various houses of friends, as well as discussion of the
publication and translation of the following works: Pot-Bouille, Au Bonheur des Dames and La Joie de Vivre.

Files: 90-97

These files consist of photocopies of handwritten correspondence (letters, postcards, cartes de visites and
telegrams) as well as typed/handwritten transcriptions of letters sent by Émile Zola between January of 1887
and June of 1888. Recurring correspondents include Henry Céard, Léon Hennique, Jacques van Santen Kolff,
Numa Coste, Edmond de Goncourt, Gabriel Thyébaut and Alfred Bruneau. The letters pertain to both
personal and professional matters, or sometimes both, as seen in the case where Zola sent most of his close
friends (The Charpentiers, Céard, Hennique, Guillemot, de Goncourt, etc.) a letter indicating his displeasure
with the Théâtre du Châtelet because they were playing an unauthorized version of Germinal. Zola refused to
attend himself and encouraged his friends to also boycott the show (letters dated April 21, 1888, in File #97).
Other works discussed in these files include La Terre and Le Rêve.

Files: 119-125

These files consist of photocopies and typed transcriptions of letters, postcards, cartes de visites and telegrams
sent by Émile Zola between October of 1892 and December of 1893. Recurring correspondents include
Ernest Vizetelly, Alfred Bruneau, Henry Céard, Georges Charpentier, Jacques van Santen Kolff, Gabriel
Thyébaut, Jeanne and Denise Rozerot, and Ely Halpérine-Kaminsky. Works discussed in these files include La
Débâcle, Le Docteur Pascal and Lourdes. The contents of the letters include both personal matters (his discussion
of his children and relationship with Jeanne Rozerot) and professional (both with the publication and
translation of his works and as the President of the Société des gens de lettres).

Files: 126-135

These files consist of photocopies and typed transcriptions of letters, postcards, cartes de visites and telegrams
sent by Émile Zola between January of 1894 and December of 1895. Recurring correspondents include Ernest
Vizetelly, Alfred Bruneau, Henry Céard, Georges Charpentier, Jacques van Santen Kolff, Gabriel Thyébaut,
Jeanne and Denise Rozerot, and Ely Halpérine-Kaminsky. Works discussed in these files include Le Docteur
Pascal and Lourdes. The contents of the letters include both personal and professional matters; his personal life
is quite prevalent in this period as seen in a letter to Jeanne Rozerot where he expresses his unhappiness with
his double life (dated July 13, 1894, in File #128). However, professional matters likewise influence his
writings, particularly as they relate to his work but also as his role with La Société des gens de lettres and the
criticism of Auguste Rodin’s Statue of Balzac, commissioned by Zola in 1891 as the President of the Society

Files: 163-172

These files consist of photocopies of handwritten correspondence and typed/handwritten transcriptions sent
by Émile Zola between July of 1901 and September of 1902. Recurring correspondents include Fernand
Labori, Denise Rozerot, Alfred Bruneau, Fernand Desmoulin, Ernest Vizetelly and Joseph Reinach. The
letters included in these files focus on Zola’s works (the development of Vérité, which would be published
posthumously, as well as various articles for journals). These files also include undated letters #1-165 retained
by the Zola Research Program (most of which were not included in the volumes). These letters are heavily
annotated and demonstrate the process of cross-referencing and researching that the Zola Research Program
staff undertook in their attempt to date the letters.

Files: 173-178

These files consist of undated letters sent by Émile Zola, most of which have not been published in the
volumes. The first half of the files contains the letters that have been arranged by the number given to them by
the Zola Research Program (#166 onwards). The second half of the files contains the same letters but
arranged alphabetically according to addressee. These undated letters are interesting because the annotations
document the process that the Zola Research Program underwent in attempting to date the letters (crossreferencing
with other letters that refer to a particular event, Zola’s location from which he wrote, tracking
references in the Letters by Contemporaries, etc).

Files: 193-205

These files consist of photocopies of correspondence written by Émile Zola between 1858 and 1902. These
files are photocopies of letters published in 2010 through the University of Montreal Press by Dorothy Speirs
and Owen Morgan. This publication was not within the scope of the original Zola Research Program project,
but it is titled as the eleventh book in the Émile Zola Correspondance series. For the most part, the
correspondence is composed of typed transcriptions of the letters, some of which are accompanied by
photocopies of the handwritten version. Some of the source information has likewise been documented, either
through annotation at the bottom of the transcription or by stapling a copy of the catalog to the transcription.
Each year is accompanied by a typed inventory – although this inventory does not correspond directly with the
letters in the file (sometimes there are letters listed in the inventory but not included in the file). Markings on
the transcriptions indicate that Speirs and Morgan were attempting to remove any letters that had already been
published in the Emile Zola Correspondance series (as seen on a letter that has been crossed out with the markings
"tome VIII, lettre 180"), implying that the letters in these files cannot be found anywhere else in this fonds.

Files: 255-260

These files consist of various correspondence sent to Émile Zola throughout January of 1892 to December of
1893, including photocopies of handwritten letters, postcards, cartes de visites as well as handwritten and
typed transcriptions of letters. Most of the letters discuss business deals (publications and translations) of La
Débâcle, Le Docteur Pascal and Lourdes. Recurring correspondents throughout these files include Ernest Vizetelly,
Antoine Guillemet, Gabriel Thyébaut, the family Charpentier (Georges, Paul and Georgette) and Eugène
Fasquelle. There are a number of letters from Ernest Vizetelly within these files that discuss various business
matters including arranging a dinner in 1893 between Zola and other English authors, translations of books
into English and a biography being written about Zola by R.H. Sherard

Files: 261-267

These files consist of photocopies of handwritten letters, postcards, cartes de visites, telegrams and
handwritten and typed transcriptions of letters sent to Zola between January and December of 1894.
Recurring correspondents include Ernest Vizetelly, Henry & Co. and Antoine Guillemet. File #264 contains a
Zola Research Program fonds
vast number of cartes de visites, most of which contain expressions of gratitude to Zola for the release of
Lourdes and his generosity in sending copies of the book to his friends, associates and acquaintances.

Files: 401-405

These files consist of photocopies of handwritten and typed letter, postcards, cartes de visites, telegrams and
some photocopies of newspaper clippings sent to Émile Zola between February 8 and March 31, 1898. This
period spans the trial of Zola as well as the interim period after his conviction, but before his exile. These files
were obtained from a distinct accession of Dreyfus Affair material from July and August of 1991.

Files: 448-472

These files consist of photocopies of letters written by and amongst Zola’s contemporaries with the surnames
M through to Alexandrine Zola’s letters to Doctor Larat. The files within have been arranged alphabetically by
author, with recurring correspondents possessing their own distinct files. Letters sent by Alexandrine Zola to
various correspondents dominate these files, with particular emphasis on letters to the Laborde family (Amélie,
Albert and Elina). The dates range from 1871 to 1922. File #460 contains nine original cartes de visites from
Alexandrine Zola to various correspondents, dated from 1903.

Files: 473-482

These files consist of photocopies of letters written by and amongst Zola’s family and friends, starting with
letters written by Alexandrine to Eugène Fasquelle through to Zola’s mother Émilie Zola and finishing with
letters written to and from Zola’s wife, mistress and children between 1903 and 1905. File #474 contains
letters sent to Alexandrine Zola by Eugène Fasquelle. The dates of letters in these files range from 1841 to

  1. The letters sent to and from Zola’s family are arranged chronologically.

Files: 483-496

These files consist of photocopies of letters written amongst Zola’s immediate family: Alexandrine Zola,
Jeanne Rozerot, Denise Émile-Zola (previously Rozerot), Jacques Émile-Zola (previously Rozerot) and
eventually Denise’s husband Maurice Le Blond and Jacques’ wife Marguerite Émile-Zola. The files within are
arranged chronologically, starting in 1906 and continuing through to 1924, including undated letters. There is
no clear indication as to why these letters have been compiled and preserved, as they could not have provided
context for the annotations in the published volumes (as they were all written after Zola’s death); however, it is
possible that these letters were collected to document the lives of Zola’s children, who would eventually have a
great impact on the development of the project because the children of Denise and Jacques provided the
primary and foremost source of letters.

Files: 510-537

These files consist of photocopies of handwritten manuscripts, published material and typed transcriptions of
manuscripts and other documents pertaining to Zola’s works written between 1866 and 1952. The files within
have been arranged alphabetically by title of works, starting with Angeline and finishing with Vérité. These files
document some of Zola’s thought process and brainstorming when writing his books and short stories.
Germinal and Une Page d’amour contain extensive (though not complete) photocopies of manuscripts written in
Zola’s hand.
