Architectural Records Collection

  • CA ON00335 F1029
  • Collection
  • 1857 - 2008

Architectural records are plans, drawings, blueprints, or other graphic or visual documents used in the
design and construction of buildings, landscapes, or other manmade objects. Architectural records are the
result of a lengthy process of gathering and refining data in order to prepare a design and produce final
construction drawings and plans. Using surveys of the construction site, the architect produces rough
sketches and diagrams of the proposed building. Preliminary drawings are then prepared and revised. The
final construction drawings include minute details about size, scale, structural systems, electrical wiring,
plumbing, heating, and air conditioning systems, as well as interior and exterior finishes. The final plans,
prepared by a photochemical process, might be reproduced several times, and might be revised as
construction progresses.
The architectural records in this finding aid are listed chronologically, by series number, name of project,
name of architect/architectural firm, and number of items. They have been arranged chronologically,
according to date of building project. Each project constitutes a records subseries. Each subseries has
been described according to name of building project, name of architect/architectural firm, and date span.
Within each subseries, the records divide themselves into files according to type of drawing, such as
sketches, mechanical plans, or detailed drawings. The architect's original organization and system of
numbering has been maintained. When this information has been unavailable, the records have been
organized by date and subject.

It also documents his teaching and mentoring of graduate students who often went on to other University or agencies. Series 8 (Teaching) also documents Etkin’s role as a teacher but is limited to lecture notes on his various courses.

Series 2 through 6 document the breadth of Etkin's research and publishing activities. Often there is a cross over among these series where files for a specific topic can be found in several places. This reflects the tangential nature of his research. A research topic, for example, may have begun as a consultant project but ultimately led to further study resulting in a professional paper being presented at a symposium or published in a journal. Etkin often continued to research into areas of interest even after the grant funded research was complete. So while Series 2 (Lectures, Talks and Seminars) and Series 4 (Research Files) represent the bulk of the research he did on his own, most often there are related topics found in either Series 6 (Grants) or Series 7 (Consulting Files). As a general rule, research conducted for a government agency was usually done as part of a granting structure and is documented in Series 6, while research undertaken for industry was done on a consultancy basis and is documented in Series 7. Series 4 (Book Files) only contains documents related to his books on Flight Dynamics. Records relating to research that Etkin undertook toward the improvement and development of a new particle separator have been placed at the end of the fonds in Series 10 (Infrasizer Ltd.).

While Professor Etkin held several minor and two significant administrative posts at the University of Toronto, only a small amount of records exist in this fonds that document these roles. They can be found in Series 8 (University of Toronto).

This fonds will be of great interest to researchers interested in the early development of the Canadian aerospace industry, especially in the early years of the Cold War. The University of Toronto Institute of Aerospace Studies received much of its outside funding from U.S and Canadian government agencies during this period. Work being done by Etkin and other IAS colleagues documents the link between industry and government in the field of aerospace research. Naturally, this fonds would also be of interest to anyone wishing to study the history of IAS and the early teaching and research of aerodynamic engineering in Canada.

Archibald Byron Macallum fonds

  • UTA 1496
  • Fonds
  • ca 1879-1969

Fonds consists of 3 accessions

B1966-0005: Correspondence, notebooks, and illuminated addresses presented to Prof. Macallum in 1906 by undergraduates in the Faculty of medicine on the occasion of his election to the Royal Society of Canada documenting his contributions to the study of biochemistry. Includes correspondence with William Osler and Ramsay Wright. Photoprints include several images of Professor Macallum and one of Taddle Creek and McCaul's Pond, c. 1879. (Described in all 4 series)

B1969-0001: Updated documentary scrapbook on Dr. A.B. MacAllum, professor of biochemistry prepared by Dr. A. D. MacAllum. Consists of copies of articles, biographies, writings, photoprints relating to the life of Prof. A.B. MacAllum pasted into a scrapbook. (described in Series 2)

B2003-0022: Correspondence to A.B. Macallum who was professor of Physiology starting in 1901 and later professor of Biochemistry from 1908-1917. Some of the correspondence relates to his role in helping to organize the Meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science at the University of Toronto in 1897. (described in Series 1)

James M. Ham fonds

  • UTA 1341
  • Fonds
  • 1921-2006

Records in these eight accessions document mainly Ham’s work as a student, a teacher and his professional activities as an engineer. There is also correspondence and memorabilia that document his personal relationships with family members. Although some series do touch upon his administrative posts at the University of Toronto and his advisory roles on government bodies, most of Ham’s activities in this regard can be found in the official archives of that body or office.
