John Greer Slater fonds

  • UTA 1780
  • Fonds
  • 1884-2011

This fonds contains records related to the researching and publishing activities of Professor John Greer Slater, philosopher and professor at the University of Toronto. The series documenting both his research on Bertrand Russell, and the publication of his book Minerva’s Aviary, are the two largest. There is also a relatively large amount of material documenting his administrative activities within the Department of Philosophy at the University of Toronto and his book collecting. Throughout this fonds there are a lot of press clippings, particularly in his personal and autobiographical records, though there are also many in the Bertrand Russell series and the Department of Philosophy Series.

The records include correspondence, notes, drafts, manuscripts, press clippings and photographs.

The bulk of the records are contained in accession B2014-0039. Also included are 2 boxes of correspondence, memoranda, reports, monographs and newspaper clippings accumulated by Professor Slater as a member of the Provost's Committee to Review the Relationships between the University of Toronto and OISE (accession B1985-0026) found in Series 3.

Notably absent from this fonds is any teaching material. In addition, the Addresses series contains mainly flyers about addresses that Professor Slater has either given or attended, but does not contain the text of any of his addresses.

Manuscripts and publications

Series contains manuscripts and publications that McKay either wrote or kept in his files. Although the majority of pieces address scientific matters, the series also includes a Junior Prize Essay (“Fathers Versus Sons”) that McKay wrote while still in high school. A number of pieces, including the aforementioned “Fathers Versus Sons,” are to be found in journals or magazines, which have been included in the fonds both so as to preserve context and because many of them are no longer in print. It is worth noting that four of the articles in the series were coauthored, rather than sole-authored, by McKay. These are: “The Decay of Nitrogen Afterglow,”
“”The Decay of the Populations of Metastable Atoms and Ions from the Same D-C. Discharge in Neon,” “Effect of Previous History on Switching Rate in Ferrites,” and “The Hall Effect and Resistivity in Tellurium.” The series also includes McKay’s PhD dissertation, The Measurement of the Dialectric Constant of Electrolytes, and the high school physics textbook he co-authored with D.G. Ivey and which his sister, Marjorie, illustrated.
