Publishing

This series contains mainly galleys of pasted text for what is presumed to be Kaleidoscopes: selected writings of H.S.M. Coxeter. It also includes approximately 150-200 geometrical drawings, some original, others printed, but presumably most drawn by Coxeter for his many publications. Finally one file contains a typescript entitled “Summary of the first six chapters of Coxeter’s Projective Geometry, 1964”.

Series also contains copies of Professor Coxeter's publications on mathematical problems that have been translated into other languages. This series does not contain any manuscripts to any of the 12 books Coxeter wrote. Series 2, Professional Correspondence, contains some correspondence with publishers regarding some of his books.

Doctoral research and thesis

This series documents Coxeter’s earliest writings and research while a student at Cambridge. It consists of research notes, a draft paper on Schlafli functions and the manuscript to his “old” thesis entitled Petri Polygons: a New Approach to the Study of Regular Polytopes and Skew Polyhedra. There also is a 1930 offprint from the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London and a manuscript of Part II of his post-doctoral thesis. Finally, although it predates his attendance at Cambridge in 1926, a 1924 mathematical notebook has been included in this series.

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.

Correspondence and biographical

Consists of correspondence with colleagues, publishers, and his wife. Also includes a framed letter from Duncan Campbell Scott, 2 annotated books, educational diplomas and certificates, memoirs, scrapbooks, graduation robes, and various medals.

Print material

Consists of off-prints and clippings from various journals of book reviews and critical articles by E.K. Brown.

Manuscripts, publications, and addresses

This series is a largely complete record of Professor Allemang's writings that, for the most part, resulted in publication. Her literary oeuvre was not a large one, but it contains a number of firsts. Her doctoral thesis was one of the earliest dissertations in clinical nursing and the first such study of Canadian institutions. Her research project in conjunction with Toronto Western Hospital, The experiences of eight cardiac patients during a period of hospitalization in a General Hospital (1960) was the first patient care study of its kind conducted in Canada.

History of nursing and nursing education materials

The manuscripts and publications in this series consist of addresses, manuscripts, reports and theses that were associated with the University of Toronto's nursing program, programs at other institutions, and the broader subject of nursing education generally. Professor Allemang was not the author of any of these documents but was asked to comment on some of them. The arrangement is by author and, where no author exists, by title.

The series begins with an address by Mr. Allway on nursing education at the University of Toronto (1980). It is followed by the first Elsie Stephenson Memorial Lecture delivered by Professor Helen Carpenter at the University of Edinburgh (1973); a draft of a paper by Barbara Craig on the development and managing of nursing archives (1993), other reports on nursing issues by Professors John Crispo of the School of Business (1963), Rosella Cunningham (1972) and Margaret Hume (1978), and Judy Young (1991?). There is also a draft of Dorothy Hill's doctoral thesis from the University of Waterloo (1966), a typescript, 'Report of a study of the psychiatric affiliation' (195-), that Professor Allemang considered significant, and a mimeograph of a health survey report by Marguerite Williams of the City of Toronto (1974). There is also a copy of Celebrate the centenary, 1898-1998, issued by the Toronto Western Hospital Nurses Alumnae Association.

There are two files from individuals seeking Professor Allemang's expertise, with her comments. In 1991 Dorothy Stinson of the University of Alberta sought her input into an introductory bibliography of a course at the University of Alberta, 'Nursing 684: History and politics of nursing'. In 1993 Barbara Sibbald asked her for advice on an article on the current threat to self regulation that she was penning for CAN Today.

United College, Winnipeg

Prof. McNaught was appointed Assistant Professor of history in 1947 at United College (now University of Winnipeg). a college funded by the United Church of Canada. The majority of files in this series document his role in the“Harry Crowe Case” of 1958. Prof. Harry Crowe was a member of the History Department at United College and shared Prof. McNaught’s social democratic views. In April, 1958 the principal of United College, Rev. Wilfrid C. Lockhart, was anonymously sent a letter written by Prof. Crowe to Professor W.A. Packer critical of the College’s administration and the role of the ministers in public administration. Between April and September of that year, the matter escalated culminating in the firing of Prof. Crowe by the Board of Regents in July, 1958. In the fall, three members of the faculty, including Prof. McNaught, threatened to resign over the firing of Prof. Crowe. As a result, the Board accepted their letters of protest as letters of resignation. This resignation from United College led to his eventual appointment at the University of Toronto. Included are correspondence, newspaper and magazine articles, and copies of public statements and one file relating to his research on J. S. Woodsworth for his doctoral dissertation.

Publications

Prof. McNaught began his scholarly publishing with articles and eventually a book based on his Ph.D. dissertation on J. S. Woodsworth entitled A prophet in politics (1959). During his career he published 6 books , numerous chapters in books, articles both for scholarly and popular periodicals (columns in the Toronto Star, Globe and Mail), and about 60 articles for Saturday Night as contributing editor from 1958-1968. He was on the editorial board for the Christian Outlook (1961-1966) and Canadian Forum (1968-1979) from which he resigned because of its denunciation of Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.

Research

Frederick Urban had a passionate interest in the art and architecture of Italy and much of his research, after his studies at the Whitney Museum of Modern Art, was focussed on that country. He received grants for two projects in Italy, “The Sacri Monti of Northern Italy” (1985-1989) and for his “House/Custoza” project (1985). The other principal grants funded his visiting professorship at Nanjing Institute of Technology/South East University in Nanjing, China in 1987 and 1988, the files for which are found in Series 4.

This series begins with general files on the Sacri Monti research project, including corres-pondence and grant applications, literature, maps, general research material, photographs, posters, and some tracings. There are also files for each year that Urban was in Italy, arranged chronologically. They document his itinerary and contain correspondence, a sampling of programs and brochures, programs for the Biennale of Venice (1985), and one journal (1986).

The series ends with files on exhibitions and performances of interest, along with a selection of slides, photoprints, postcards and posters. There is a folder of cards, notices and programs for a number of exhibitions and performances, primarily Canadian (1978-1992), followed by cards and catalogues for particular exhibits: Christo (1979-1982), Creative Time (including Butler’s lives of the saints), Garry Neil Kennedy, Miami University Art Museum, The New Yorker, and Andy Warhol/Jamie Wyeth. The slides are of ‘design elements’, raves in Toronto, the Toronto Sculpture Garden, and ‘Women study’. The photoprints are of streetscapes in Toronto, taken in the early 1980s. There are ‘Special postcards’ [design elements] collected by Urban, postcards of photographs taken by the British photographer, Frank Sutcliffe, ‘Die einrichtungen der Akaademie der Kűnste der DDR’ (1979), and ‘The theatre of architecture’ by Susan Speigel (Toronto, 1986).

Manuscripts and publications

Professor Urban’s writings focus on the relationship between art and architectural design. Six of his publications are present in this series. Some of those that appeared before 1986 and all published afterward are absent. His earliest writing are based on his involvement with Networks Limited in Halifax, then on collaboration with New York City artist Brian Boigon, and finally on his research in Italy in the 1980s.

Research and Writings

This series consists of unpublished and published manuscripts written by Helen Lenskyj over the course of her career. Includes: materials related to Lenskyj’s books, journal articles, reviews, reports, workshop presentations, conference addresses, and newspaper and magazine articles. Also included are manuals written by Lenskyj while she worked for the Ontario Ministry of Culture and Recreation.

The bulk of these manuscripts are subdivided into their respective subject areas, based on the four primary research interests (gender and sport, sexual education, education, and Olympic critiques) of Lenskyj during her career. This is the arrangement in which the manuscripts where donated and this order has been preserved.
