Introductory material

This series begins with and address by Professor Friedland on his writing of the history of the University of Toronto and his application for the position. Next are early notes, chronologies, chapter outlines and correspondence relating to getting the project under way. The series ends with more detailed outlines (arranged chronologically by the names of the University presidents) in which many of the issues raised are threshed out in memos with his research assistants: Kelly DeLuca, Charles Levi, Tim Meadowcroft, Michael McCulloch and Sam Robinson. These assistants, all law students with the exception of Levi (who was about to complete his doctorate in history) but with varying backgrounds in other fields (some had doctorates), worked with Professor Friedland over the summer of 1998. The law students returned to their studies in September but worked occasionally on special projects while Charles Levi stayed on as the principal researcher, to be joined in a year later by Patrick Okens whose specialty was athletics.

The files contain correspondence, notes, memoranda, lists, and an address.


Note from Bliss: "These files consist of virtually all of my ingoing and outgoing correspondence, beginning in the summer of 1967 when we moved to Harvard to be Claude Bissell's Teaching Assistant during his tenure as Mackenzie King professor of Canadian Studies there. The normal organization is simply by date - but my filing system has never been meticulous and many letters may be out of order [users are welcome to straighten them out by date], or may have slipped into other files in the collection. Some correspondence with particular colleagues and/or friends has been filed separately for some years. Some important letters or exchanges have been given separate files. The correspondence is highly professionel - with a wide range of Canadian historians and covering everything of interest to young historians - and also personal, containing correspondence with family friends and students, political letters [I was extremely upset about the Vietnam War, and wrote to various political figures] and many others.

The files relating to my editorship of the Social History of Canada series bet ween 1971 and 1976 could have been put in Series 3, but are included in this series because so many of the letters contain material of more general interest. As well, quite a bit of Social History material found its way into the general files, so they also go together for user convenience."

Professional Correspondence

This series contains records from three accessions: B1994-0002, B2009-0021, and B2015-0007. The bulk of the files are from accession B1994-0002, and consists of general incoming and out-going correspondence mainly of a professional nature. It is arranged in two parts. The first part consists of files created by Helen Hogg containing correspondence and other accompanying material with individuals, institutions, clubs and associations regarding research, special projects, events, visits, excursions, travel, donations, lectures, awards and publications. For access, these have been arranged alphabetically by file title. Some of the more notable correspondence are with colleagues such as Amelia Whelau (University of Western Ontario), Steven Van Agt (Germany), Martha Liller (Harvard Observatory), Bart J. Bok (Harvard and Australia), Chu Yu-Hua (China), and there is also extensive correspondence with Harlow Shapley, director of the Harvard College Observatory and mentor to Prof. Hogg.

The second part of this series consists of miscellaneous correspondence arranged by decade. Far from being extraneous pieces, this correspondence is quite extensive and reveals much about her professional activities and on-going research. These files contain the largest volume of correspondence documenting both her and Frank Hogg's early career in the 1930s and 1940s. These files were created from loose correspondence within the records or from files, which were clearly miscellaneous.

Researchers should note that while this series does not represent the whole of the Hogg correspondence (much of which is specific to each series), it is a good representation of the scope of her interests and activities. Some of the correspondence relates directly to records in other series and researchers should bear this in mind when investigating a particular topic.
