Writings and publication drafts

Series consists of W. E. Gallie’s writings, manuscripts and reports that eventually went to publication. The series consists of both typed and handwritten reports, drafts, some correspondence related to copying and publishing, and in some cases, medical photographs or images have been attached as figures. A bibliography of many of Gallie’s works is included. Some of the publications in this series are co-authored by Gallie and Dr.’s Robertson, LeMesurier, and Janes. The files in this series have been arranged in chronological order. The titles for the files in this series reflect the given title of each report, if one exists.

Talks, lectures and addresses

This series consists of numerous talks, lectures and addresses which W.E. Gallie presented to various conferences, graduating class receptions, and medical lectures. The file titles in this series represent the content of the lecture as well as the audience, if one has been provided. The files in this series have been arranged in chronological order.

Also includes B1990-0046: Text of toast by Dr. W.E. Gallie to the "Sister Universities" at the formal opening of the Banting Institute, with covering letter and a copy of the program, 1930.

Research

This series contains research notes and journals covering a range of W.E. Gallie’s medical work as well as a small collection of research papers written by other doctors and annotated by Gallie. Gallie’s journal documenting his experiments on animals – mainly dogs – is in this series. Some of the files contain correspondence regarding certain research projects. The files in this series are arranged chronologically.

Correspondence

This series contains a mixture of both personal and professional correspondence belonging to W.E. Gallie. Notable collections within this series include letters written to and from Colonel J.A. MacFarlane, Consulting Surgeon, Canadian Army Overseas, correspondence with Dr. W.G. Bigelow, and correspondence with well-known American Surgeon Dr. Rudolph Matas. The files in this series are arranged chronologically.

Graphic material and film

Files in this series contain photographs, and graphic materials relating to Gallie’s professional and personal life. Many of the photographs are miscellaneous figures and graphics that may have been used in papers, lectures, and talks. This series also includes a film of one of Gallie’s operations.

Correspondence

This series contains letters written to Professor Bay by members of his family and friends, as well as professional correspondence. The correspondence is largely personal in nature in early years but becomes mainly professional in later years. The material includes replies sent by Bay. Approximately a third to half of the material is written in Norwegian.

Boxes B2014-0010/006-/038 were arranged by Professor Bay. This arrangement consists of grouping correspondence by several months at the time and then arranging the correspondence in alphabetical order. The remaining correspondence boxes were then divided by professional or personal nature, and by language when possible, and arranged chronologically. In the correspondence with the notations “Parts I and II”, Professor Bay usually included lists of his correspondents. This system broke down in the last couple of years of his life.

Photographs

This series primarily consists of portraits and family photographs. Some photographs have inscriptions on the back. This series reflects Professor Bay’s personal life and also provides a few graphic records of his professional activities.

Employment (miscellaneous)

The records in this series document Dr. Safarian's employment outside the University of Saskatchewan where he taught from 1956 to 1966 and the University of Toronto where he as been since then.

From 1950 to 1955, Dr. Safarian was employed in the International Trade Division of the Dominion Bureau of Statistics in Ottawa. In the summer of 1956 he joined the research staff of the Royal [Gordon] Commission on Canada's Economic Prospects. He also served as a consultant to federal and provincial governments; documented here is his work during the summer of 1980 with the Department of Industry, Trade and Commerce in Ottawa on a comparative study of foreign investment studies.

Dr. Safarian's academic activities extended well beyond the Universities of Saskatchewan and Toronto. Between 1963 and 1980, he taught courses during ten sessions at the Banff School of Advanced Management. During sabbatical and research leave in 1976-1977 and 1981-1982 he was Visiting Research Professor in the Faculty of Law and Economics at the University of Nice.

Addresses

This series is a compilation of addresses, speeches and talks given by Dr. Safarian at public and academic functions over a period of nearly four decades. They document Dr. Safarian's chief concerns of foreign investments, national management policies and multinational corporations.

The files contain drafts of addresses, addresses, notes, research materials and press clippings. Arrangement is chronological. Some of the addresses were originally created as subject files by Dr. Safarian.

Correspondence and committees

Alphabetically arranged files contain correspondence with individuals and groups and give a good overview of Etkin’s professional activities and relationships. Included are files with colleagues at many Canadian and American universities as well as with representatives of the aviation industry including Boeing, DeHavilland and Royal Aircraft Establishment. This series also contains correspondence and related documents for various committees and professional associations such a committee of NATO called AGARD (Advisory Group for Aerospace Research), the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the Association of Professional Engineers and the Canadian Aeronautical Space Institute. There is documentation on Etkin’s time as chair of the Aeronautics Advisory Board of Transport Canada. Some files relate to professional trips or visits including Etkin’s trip to China in 1982 and the Chinese subsequent visit to IAS.

Also found in this series is correspondence with Ph.D. students and colleagues within the University of Toronto such as G.N. Patterson, Israel Glass, J.B. French, James Gotlieb and many more.

Research files

This series contains mainly correspondence, manuscripts, drafts and notes relating to some of the many research papers, reports and proposals that were published or presented by Etkin over a 40 year span. To list only a few, papers document his work in: wind engineering, flight dynamics, satellite stability, flight in turbulent winds, supersonic wing design, wind tunnel design and aerodynamic particle separator design.

Of particular note are files relating to his research on the spin decay of the Alouette I Satellite and his subsequent design modifications for Alouette II. Etkin identified the deceleration of the early Alouette I satellite as one of the most interesting science and engineering problems that he was faced with throughout his career. Scientific papers presenting his findings can be found in this series while records relating to grants to design a modification for Alouette II are found in Series 5 – Grants.

A second file to note, documents the role he and his IAS colleagues played in the safe return of the Apollo 13 mission. Identified by Etkin as the most dramatic event in his career, the story is preserved here in correspondence, notes, clippings and a photo. Etkin’s discussion of the event can be found in a recent talk to the Engineering Alumni Association found in Series 2 - Lectures, Talks and Seminars (B2004-0017/005(42).

Finally Etkin’s comments on peer publications, referee reports and reviews for several journals can also be found in this series along with files relating to his time as one of the editors of Progress in Aerospace Science.

Grants

Files in this series document much of the same research areas documented in Series 3 but relate to those specific projects funded by granting bodies, mainly by the Canadian and American governments. Much of the early research conducted at the Institute of Aerospace Studies by Etkin and his colleagues was funded by Canada’s Defence Research Board, the U.S. Air Force’s Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), and National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and later by NASA and the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council .

Other government agencies supported research for specific purposes relating to their operation. For example, there are files on air curtain projects for Toronto City Hall, Ontario Hydro and the Ontario Science Centre, a file on noise research for the Toronto Transit Commission, and one file on the aerodynamic stability of helicopters for the Hydro-Electric Power Commission.

Files contain papers, reports, proposals, budgets, contracts and correspondence. They are arranged alphabetically by the name of the granting agency or the subject matter of the research undertaken.

Consulting

Records in this series again document Etkin’s research and the application of this research by industry. Files most often contain correspondence, reports, notes and invoices relating to research undertaken. Early in his career, he worked as a consultant for several Canadian aviation firms including DeHavilland, Avro, and Found Brothers Aviation of Malton Ont. . By the early 1960s, professors of the UTIAS founded AERCOL Aerospace Engineering Research Consultants and as a member of this group, Etkin continued consulting work for the aviation industry including companies such as DeHavilland SPAR, General Electric and Goodyear, all of which had aerospace divisions.

Many of the client files documented in this series represent clients such as architectural firms and industrial firms requesting wind tunnel tests on structures, consultation on wind loads and the design and testing of air curtains. Of particular note is the wind tunnel test done for Parkins and Associates on the “new” Toronto City Hall design in 1960. The original award winning design had to be modified after it failed the wind tunnel tests. The initial uproar that ensued at city hall and in the media drew attention to Etkin’s research in his state of the art wind tunnel. For Etkin’s recollection of this event, see his recent talk to the Engineering Alumni Association found in Series 2 - Lectures, Talks and Seminars (B2004-0017/005(42).

Infrasizer Ltd.

This series documents Etkin’s research activities relating to Infrasizer Ltd.. This company was founded in 1937 by University of Toronto mining professor H.E.T. Haultain as a means of building and distributing his Infrasizer, a particle separator that he invented for use in processing minerals. When Etkin became Dean of Engineering in 1973, he became the defacto president of Infrasizer Ltd. Files at the beginning of this series contain mainly correspondence and reports relating the administration of Infrasizer Ltd during Etkin’s period as Dean (1973-1979).

While in his capacity as director of the company, he set out to improve on the model. The result was the Infrasizer MK III a laboratory device and the Tervel Separator developed for commercial use. Most of the records in this series document the development of these two inventions. Includes information on patents and use of the MK III model for industry clients (filed alphabetically by client name) as well as the attempt to manufacture and market the Tervel Separator.

Finally, files relating to exhibits borrowed and mounted at the Faculty's gallery are arranged in chronological order.

This series contains photographs, negatives and slides documenting the mounting of exhibits in the Faculty of Architecture including the 1983 exhibit on Le Corbusier and the school's centenary exhibit "Restatement and Realizations: Built work of graduates of the School since 1893". All photographs, slides and negatives have been removed, placed in their own files and boxed separately. In such cases, a SEPARATION NOTICE has been inserted to indicate the existence of graphic materials.

Correspondence

This extensive series contains both personal and professional correspondence received by Prof Berger during his academic career. Some of Prof. Berger’s draft replies will be found in later files. The earliest letters document his doctoral education and his appointment to the Department of History at the University of Toronto. Correspondence from the 1970s through the 1990s document his flourishing career as prominent historian, author, teacher and advisor, etc. Later correspondence is dominated by requests from editors and other scholars relating to his publications, requests for review of other manuscripts, as well as his history of the Royal Society (1996)

Correspondents include, among others, prominent academics such as Prof. Ray MacLean, Dept. of History, St. Francis Xavier University (b 1927 d. 2004), Prof. Ramsay Cook, George (now Sir George) S. Bain, a former classmate at the University of Manitoba and member of Board of Bombardier Aerospace, as well as former students such as Doug Owram (professor, University of Alberta 1976-2006), and colleagues at Canadian and foreign universities. Subjects include personal information about family, friends and colleagues, academic correspondence with students and other academics about research progress, requests for letters of reference and support, comments on recent publications, and other academic activities. Two files at the end of this series contain letters to single correspondents: M. Brook Taylor (1986-2006) former student and faculty member in Department of History, Mount St.Vincent University and Sam Waller, amateur historian and founder of the Sam Waller Museum in The Pas, Manitoba.

Professional activities

This series contains primarily correspondence files relating to various topics or events. Among the files are his appointment file for the University of Toronto containing personal information relating to salary and promotion (initially as Lecturer in 1964), as well as a copy of his curriculum vitae. Other files document awards and honours, external activities relating participation in conferences and associations, as well as administrative duties with the University of Toronto. In addition to correspondence, files may contain project proposals, reports, manuscripts of papers and some photographs.

Personal and biographical

This series contains copies of Professor Flynn’s curriculum vitae and some correspondence, both personal and professional and including letters of reference, and examination questions for his undergraduate work in Arts at the University of Toronto in the early 1940s. Included are three photographs and a satirical drawing of his receiving his doctorate from the Sorbonne.

Research

Professor Flinn’s academic research centred on bourgeoise literature in the Middle Ages, particularly in France, and the iconography of the Roman de Renart, Renard the fox, and related works in medieval Europe. It led to one book, Le Roman de Renart dans la littérature française et dans les literatures étrangères au Moyen Age and a number of articles and addresses. His research continued into retirement and over the years he corresponded with a number of fellow enthusiasts, especially Tobias Hagtingius in the Netherlands and Kenneth Varty at the University of Glasgow.

The files contain notes, original material sent by colleagues, correspondence relating to Professor Flinn’s research interests and partial drafts of some writing projects. Some relate to his book, others to the iconography of the Roman de Renart, and still others to a ‘Reynard the Fox in Europe’ project proposed by Erwin Verzandvoort of the Netherlands in the late 1980s, which apparently came to naught. It is not possible, for the most part, to relate these files directly to a single publication, except for a few files relating to Professor Flinn’s book; these can be found in the next series.

The arrangement of the files follows Professor Flinn’s quite closely, with the description of each file (except for the “Renart’ prefix to each, done by the arranger) being, very largely, what he provided.

Included are photoprints, film strips, photonegatives, slides and postcards from sources in Europe and Britain; these are often referred to in the correspondence or in Professor Flinn’s notes. The images in B2009-0038/002P have been left in the envelopes provided by Professor Flinn, with his notations thereon; the descriptions of the other photos are taken from his notations. For an accompanying file of notes, see B2009-0038/005(18). The arrangement has been left in the order he created.

External professional activities

For most of his active career, Dr. Baker was involved with organizations related to his specialty in paediatrics and later native health. This series contains files documenting his involvement with the Canadian Paediatric Society including his chairmanship of the Indian and Inuit Health Committee. These files include minutes of meetings, drafts of papers, notes and correspondence. Also included are files on the Council of Faculties of Medicine of Ontario and the Northern Ontario Committee which he chaired from 1992 to 1997. There is also one file of the Canadian Psychiatric Association relating to a meeting in September 1989.

Student activities

Personal correspondence with friends and University officials, brochures, flyers, pamphlets, and reports relating to courses in Caribbean studies created and collected during Mr. Pieters undergraduate years (B.A. Political Science, 1993) at New College. Also included is a file on New College Alumni Association containing copies of reports, etc relating to the provostial review of the college, 1996. This series also includes photos documenting his activities as a student including social events, meetings, dinners and his graduation.

Future Teachers Club

The Future Teachers Club is an initiative of the Faculty of Education to encourage African/Canadian students in elementary and secondary schools to consider teaching as a career. The objective is to increase the number of African/Canadian teachers in the classrooms to a level which is reasonably representative of African/Canadians in relation to European/Canadians, Asian/Canadians and Aboriginal/Canadians in the provincial population.

This series consists of correspondence, reports, minutes of meetings, survey forms and results, brochures, and flyers collected by Mr Pieters as an active participant in this club while a student at the Faculty of Education. Also included are records relating to "Promoting equity for the teachers of tomorrow" (PETT), a program "undertaken to encourage students from African Canadian and Portuguese communities to consider teaching as a career. There is also a photo album showing Pieters practice teaching at a local school.

Graphic

Photographs and negatives document Putnam, his family, the Department of Geography field trips and research field trips. Many photographs were taken by Putnam and later, his son Bob Putnam, for possible use in books.

There are photographs of Putnam and Lyman Chapman working in the field during the 1930s, Geography field trips with student through the 1940s and 1950s and of Canadian landscapes and geographical highlights photographed during various trips. There is also one group shot of the Geography Department taken in either the late 1950s or early 1960s.

Finally, there is one box of unidentified early negatives. These have yet to be processed but seem to be a mix of early family images 1910s and 20s and some documenting Putnam’s early field trips.
