Personal and biographical

Biographical information, will, address books, diaries, certificates, notebooks, and related material documenting the private activities of Frieda Fraser. The "five-year" diaries record a wide variety of her activities, the weather, bird sightings and gardening from about 1972 to 1983. The notebooks document her passion for gardening (1941-1978) and a trip she took in 1956. There is a substantial file on her mother's estate (1937-1970).

Correspondence

The letters in this series consists of letters received by Frieda from Bud, from her friends and family. Frieda and Bud were separated for long periods in the 1920s and the 1930s and did not live together until the end of the 1930s, following the death of Frieda's grandmother. The house they shared, on the Niagara escarpment near Burlington, had been purchased by Frieda's mother some years earlier. Built in 1834, it was sited on a large acreage with an orchard on the slope behind. When apart they wrote to each frequently, often every day and sometimes more than once a day.

Some of the correspondence in undated, but only a few letters pre-date 1925 and these are from Frieda's college friends. Most of the letters were written by Bud to Frieda, between about 1925 and 1942. They cover all aspects of their lives, including relationships with their families and friends and how same-sex love was perceived.

For the period up to 1950, the remainder of the correspondence is from friends whom Frieda retained in adulthood, along with a few letters from and about members of her family, including relatives in Germany. There are fewer than a half-dozen letters for the period between 1950 and the mid-1960s.

Nearly all the later correspondence dates from 1976 to 1979, the very trying years during which Bud struggled with the effects of her stroke. Letters and cards poured in from concerned colleagues, friends, and relatives. Those addressed to Frieda and Bud jointly are filed in this series; those addressed to Bud alone are filed in Series 2 in Sous-fonds 3. Only a representative sampling of the cards have been retained.

Teaching files and lecture notes

The series begins with background files for teaching that Professor McLeod assembled over the years on multicultural education, race relations and racism, Philippe Rushton, and teachers’ education.

The files in this series contain course outlines for most of the courses taught in the two departments, which Professor McLeod headed, but the emphasis is on the courses that he himself taught. Most of his courses were offered at the Ontario School of Education/
Faculty of Education, with a few graduate ones at OISE. There are two files (in B1997-0018) on a graduate seminar in cross-cultural education that McLeod gave at the University of Manitoba in 1976-1977.

The principal course that McLeod taught were the history/development of Canadian education, cross-cultural education, multiculturalism in education (including summer courses), English as a second language, the process of becoming a teacher, and adult education, all at the Faculty of Education. Courses given by McLeod at OISE include problems in Canadian education and the sociology of minority groups. In the early 1990s, there is extensive material on the evolution of the primary/junior options program in elementary education, and from 1991 on the emphasis is on developing courses in the new Department of Policy and Foundation Studies. New programs in adult education, in particular, were developed. In 1989-1990, McLeod taught a night school course in multiculturalism to ESL students in the Region of Peel.

The files contain course registrations and lists of students, course outlines and bibliographies numerous notes, some lecture notes, some term papers, and exams.

Professional activities

The files in this series relate almost wholly to the journal, Multiculturalism, which Professor McLeod founded in 1977 and of which he was the editor until the autumn of 1993. From 1984, to make the journal more inclusive, the editorial in each issue was translated into French and information about some of the writers and précis of the articles were written in French.

The files, which begin with his initial proposals in 1976, contain correspondence and notes regarding the founding of the journal, some financial records, a readership survey, correspondence and notes relating to manuscripts submitted, along with a selection of the latter (most of which were rejected, with reasons given). Although few were signed, Professor McLeod wrote all the editorials for Multiculturalism except for a few written by the associate editor or members of the editorial board [for example, IV, 1 (1980) and XIV, 2/3 (1992)] and by guest editors [such as II, 4 (1979), III, 4 (1980), IV, 2 (1980)]. Many of these editorials are found in Series 6: Manuscripts and publications.

There is also a file on Professor McLeod’s editing of the 2nd issue of the Journal of Ethno-Development (1992) and another on assessments of book manuscripts.

Organizations such as the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, the Canadian Orthopedic Association, and the Ontario Medical Association are well represented in this series.

Correspondence

The correspondence in this series is arranged largely as it was organized by Dr. Patterson.

The first file, of largely personal correspondence, covers the years 1946-1990. It originally also included the material in the next few files: his correspondence as a member of the board of Spar Aerospace in the 1970s, and his memoranda on the establishment and expansion of the Institute of Aerophysics (1949-1958) which were included with his 1989 correspondence on the celebration of the fortieth anniversary of the Institute for Aerospace Studies.

Personal and biographical

This series contains material relating to Professor Spencer’s birth, childhood and later birthdays; childhood stories, plays, and poems; reunions and other post-graduate activities at McGill University and the University of Oxford; honours received; and files relating to the residences that he had owned. Also present are copies of his curriculum vitae, security documents regarding the Department of External Affairs, and material reflecting his long association with the Canadian military in the form of Remembrance Day ceremonies and VE-Day and other celebrations related to World War II.

Travel

This series documents Professor Spencer’s travels, both for pleasure and for academic and other professional purposes. The first of his trips documented here is to New York City in 1946; the last is to Europe in 2011.

The files contain an assortment of flight information, correspondence, itineraries, invitations, notes, postcards, diaries and reports (indicated below where they exist), programmes for a wide variety of events, menus, tickets, passenger lists, booklets, maps, photographs, press clippings, and other memorabilia. The arrangement is chronological by trip. Beginning in April, 1977 and continuing while he was director until his retirement in 1986, a lot of Professor Spencer’s travel was done as an extension of the work of the Centre for International Studies. For the first of these trips, he wrote a detailed report of his activities. The often extensive correspondence in these files ranges from that with Canadian government, consular, and military officials to military officials at NATO and elsewhere in Europe and England, to academic and government personnel in Western Europe. Included are files on Professor Spencer’s involvement with the Atlantic Council of Canada, the Committee on Atlantic Studies, and the Canadian Studies Association.

Some of the folders in this series contain correspondence, postcards, reports, and other items that are well outside the dates of the activities being described.

The photoprints, postcards, and artifacts (pin buttons) have been retained in the relevant files. Files containing receipts only (such as transportation, car rentals, luggage, and accommodation) were not kept and the retention of such material in other files is selective. Fax paper, where present, has been photocopied and the original faxes, most of which had deteriorated badly, have been destroyed.

Additional information about some of these trips can be found in Series 7: Correspondence.

Correspondence

The letters at the beginning of this series (in accession B2013-0005) consist of Spencer’s letters home while on military training and active duty (1941-1946), beginning with letters sent from Canada (June 1941 – March 1943) and then from overseas (June 1943 – July 1946). Spencer began numbering his letters home on 28 February 1943 when he was about to be stationed at Camp Debert, Nova Scotia. Between then and 23 March 1945 he wrote at least 312 letters home; then started, but did not maintain, a new numbering system.

These are followed by various family letters, including some sent by Spencer (1943-1947), letters to and from third parties, letters to and from his parents between 1946 and 1950, and letters (1946-1948) between Robert and Ruth Church whom he married on 22 June 1948. Bob’s letters to Ruth were always mailed to the Office of the High Commissioner at Canada House where she worked. The family correspondence, which included some from Robert’s parents (his father, Charles Allan, died on 2 August 1972), his brothers (Colin and Wilson), and later his and Ruth’s children (Charles, Valerie, and Katherine) continues until 2010. From the mid-1990s, there are no letters from Ruth.

The arrangement in this section of correspondence is grouped by correspondents but is largely chronological. Fax paper has been photocopied and the original faxes have been destroyed.

The correspondence in accession B2010-0024 relates mostly to professional, not family, matters. It includes Professor Spencer’s ongoing correspondence and dealings with various government departments, embassies, consulates, international, national and local organizations other than the COTC and Atlantik-Brücke.

Course notes for his Masters and Doctoral degrees are confined to three courses in history. Course papers include ones for History 128b with R.S. Lopez entitled “The commercial policy of Philip the Good, Duke of Burgundy, with England, 1419-1467 – ‘Wool, cloth and gold’” (1961). Course papers for History 151 in 1962 have comments by the professor, Mr. Krieger. Following are a prospectus for his doctoral thesis, drafts of some of its chapters, and a bound copy of his dissertation (1965).

Addresses, refereed reports and working papers

This series consists of papers prepared for presentation at conferences, workshops and other invited talks, reports prepared as a referee for scholarly journals, and working papers published on University of Toronto Department of Economics web site since 1998. The numbers attached to the working papers are from Professor Munro’s 2009 curriculum vitae [see B2014-0035/001(02)] and elsewhere. By the time of his death, he had completed 55 of them for the Departmental website.

Also by May 2009, Professor Munro had given papers at 81 scholarly conferences and invited lectures. He organized three of these conferences. Many of the conference and workshop papers are early versions of later published works (See Series 9). Refereed reports are for such scholarly journals as Journal of Economic History, Explorations in Economic History, Economic History Review (see also Series 5: Other activities), Medieval Studies, American Historical Review and university presses such as the University of Nebraska and Oxford University Press. Files may contain various versions of the typescript report or paper, the final version, along with associated correspondence.

University of Toronto. Chair of Ukrainian Studies

This series provides a comprehensive overview of the issues surrounding the controversy that raged between 1978 and 1980 over the filling of the newly created Chair of Ukrainian Studies at the University of Toronto. As the controversy heated up, Professor Luckyj resigned from the Search Committee in November, 1979 and opposed the appointment of the chosen candidate, Paul Magocsi. In addition to University officials and departments, most Ukrainian organizations in Canada became directly involved in or had opinions on the events as they unfolded. Amongst the latter were the the Ukrainian Students Clubs at the University of Toronto and the University of Alberta, the Ukrainian Studies Foundation, the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, and the Canadian National Youth Federation of Canada.

The records here form the complete file that was compiled by Professor Luckyj. The controversy is documented through the use of correspondence, minutes, memoranda, notes, interviews, letters to the editor, and articles in the press. Professor Luckyj has assembled a complete account of the events as portrayed in the faculty/staff and student press at the University of Toronto, the local press, and Ukrainian language papers in Canada.

In a postscript written in January, 1995 Professor Luckyj concludes that his original reservations have been borne out by subsequent events.

Complete issues of English and Ukrainian language papers that commented on the issue are stored flat in box 003.

Forster on Canadian trade relations in the 1930's. Other materials include statistics relating to Australian and Soviet trade and typescripts of papers by Steven Cobrin and David Mole.

Includes a file of research notes about South Africa (B1983-0027/005(01)).

Calendar files

Series consists of files containing correspondence and other material related to Nouwen's day to day engagements. Nouwen received dozens of invitations each month to give lectures or talks, lead retreats, preside at religious occasions, and provide spiritual direction. Requests came from a wide range of institutions, organisations and individuals, the majority having some sort of religious affiliation. Invitations from institutions included university divinity schools, seminaries, hospital pastoral departments, churches, and Christian retreat centres. Invitations from organisations included the National Catholic AIDS Network, the Ministry of Money, and the Archdiocese of Toronto. Invitations from individuals included requests for Nouwen to preside over masses, weddings, funerals, baptisms and ordinations, and those interested in personal spiritual direction. Such requests often came from priests, ministers, pastors, and chaplains. The majority of Nouwen's engagements took place in the Northeastern United States, Southern Ontario, and Holland. However, he also attended events in Illinois, Texas, California, British Columbia, Quebec, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, and the Ukraine. After Nouwen's move to L'Arche Daybreak in 1986, files were created to plan and document special events associated with his role as pastor. There are files regarding community meetings, community weekends, assistant workshops, visits to other L'Arche communities and meetings of the International Federation of L'Arche.
Generally, when an invitation was accepted a file was created and arranged chronologically according to the date of the event. In some cases the file contains material regarding events scheduled in the same city and in the case of 1985 material regarding an entire months schedule. However, typically the files are organised by event/engagement. In addition to the date of the event the title of the file would often include the name of a person or organisation and/or the event and/or the location of the event. A typical file consists of the initial letter of invitation describing the nature of the request, follow-up correspondence to confirm dates and other arrangements, details regarding Nouwen's role at the event, drafts of promotional material, reference material on the organization(s) involved, the event, the issue and the location, and travel documents. In some cases, the file will also contain handwritten or typed notes, copies of outgoing letters, schedules, programs, bulletins, evaluations completed by attendees, thank you letters and cards from the organiser of the events and others, newspaper clippings of the events and/or the published version of his speech or lecture. Outgoing letters only begin to be seen after 1986 and after that they are not consistent. Much of the correspondence after 1986 is further enriched by the annotations of Nouwen and his assistants Connie Ellis (1986-1992) and Kathy Christie (1992-1996) at L'Arche Daybreak. Other members of the community, including Sue Mosteller, Joe Vorstermans, Nathan Ball and Elizabeth Buckley, also contributed to the files.
The files were created between 1980 and 1996, however, the file titles themselves extend to 1998 because events were often scheduled two or more years in advance. There are no files for January 1982 to April 1985. The files from 1985 contain invitations only from March to August grouped by month. There are no files for June 1987 to May 1990. Approximately 74% of the files in the series are for June 1990 to August 1995. Their are only a small number of files for September 1995 to October 1998, this is likely because Nouwen was on sabbatical from September 1995 to September 1996. The files contain gaps and inconsistencies due to Nouwen's frequent movement between 1982 and 1986 as well as changes in Nouwen's support staff and their differing recordkeeping techniques.
This series provides an excellent overview of Nouwen's schedule of events and specific information regarding his participation at those events. Noteworthy are the handwritten and typed notes used for speaking engagements (some are unpublished) as well as copies of outgoing letters written by Nouwen.
