Professional associations and conferences

This series consists of files on organizations, conferences, symposia and workshops, arranged alphabetically. The most thoroughly documented ones are those in which Professor McLeod was involved in an organizational or executive capacity. The earliest files document his involvement in multicultural issues in Saskatchewan, specifically problems associated with language instruction in French. They contain correspondence, notes, briefs submitted to the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism and to the Saskatchewan Committee on Instruction in Languages other than English, associated
reports, and a seminar on bilingual education (1964-1966). Later, in Ontario, his overlapping duties as chair of the Ontario Multicultural Education Conference Committee (1980-1983) and president of the Canadian Council for Multicultural and Intercultural Education (1981-1985), for example, enabled him to play a central role in organizing the early national conferences on multicultural education. He organized and chaired two colloquiums on “Multiculturalism – Teaching and Learning”, sponsored by FEUT (1990, 1991), and was a co-organizer of the International Colloquium on Ethnicity, Conflict and Cooperation held in Moscow in 1992. McLeod also attended a number of international conferences as a Canadian representative. These include four (1977-1987) world congresses of the Comparative and International Education Association, and the Circumpolar Conference of Indigenous People in Iceland (1993).

McLeod was involved in an executive capacity in many organizations, the files for which contain the correspondence, notes and memoranda, minutes and reports that reveal the extent of his involvement. The principal bodies, for which there is extensive documentation, are the Canadian Association for Second Language Teachers (CASALT), Canadian Ethnic Studies Association (CESA), Canadian Council for Multicultural and Intercultural Education (CCMIE), Canadian History of Education Association (CHEA), Multicultural Health Coalition (MHC), the Multiculturalism and Aging Seniors Coordinating Committee (MASCC), and the Ontario Multicultural Association (OMAMO). He was also frequently asked to advise governments on policy. He gave, for example, evidence to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Multiculturalism and served on the Ontario Advisory Committee on Multiculturalism.

University of Toronto. Administrative files

The records in this series document Professor McLeod’s activities in the Faculty of Education between 1975 and 1996, his other administrative duties throughout the University, and his visiting professorship at the Université de Montréal (1990). The first files relate to his involvement in University affairs outside the Faculty of Education, especially the Centre for Health Promotion and the Salary, Tenure and Personnel Committee. His curriculum vitae and his “professional data files”, document annually his professional activities from 1975 to 1994. His activities are also revealed in his appointment books (1989-1995) and planning calendars (1990-1995), which are to be found in B1996-0030 except for the last year where the reader should consult Series 1 of B1999-0013.

The administrative records themselves begin with a series of files (1975-1996) containing general correspondence, minutes, and memoranda, relating primarily to issues in the Faculty of Education. The earliest of the files dealing with specific activities and issues is a major review of the Faculty in 1975. This sets the tone for the remaining files that address primarily issues relating to the changing nature of the curriculum and periodic administrative reorganizations. There are proposals for a staff exchange program with and a Faculty of Education/PACE Initiative in the West Indies, and a Black Canadian teacher education fellowship program. Other files cover such experiments as the voluntary induction project in the Secondary Integrated Program and a two-year pilot project for the Masters/Teachers certification program. The challenges posed by the changing nature of Canadian society are reflected in files that include the Multicultural and Education Research and Development Group, a multicultural early childhood project, a multicultural family studies project, anti-racism workshops, the seniors class, and a student group, Teachers Interested in Education for Diversity (TIED).

Two major administrative/program reorganizations are documented in this series. From 1991 to 1994 Professor McLeod chaired the BEd/OTC (Ontario Teachers College) Restructuring Committee, which recommended changes to the teachers’ education program, including the introduction of a Masters of Education in Teaching and Learning program. The other development was the merger of the Faculty of Education and OISE, following an agreement signed in November 1994 between the University and OISE. An Academic Integration Task Force began meeting in March 1995 and McLeod played an active role in its deliberations. A report, “An academic plan for OISE/UT”, was submitted the following January. There is also a report by Vendra Masemann, ‘Dealing with diversity: needs assessment of the Faculty of Education, University of Toronto,’ completed in May 1995. Additional files document McLeod’s three-year term on the Academic Board of the Governing Council, to which he was elected in 1993.

The records contain correspondence, memoranda, minutes and reports. The arrangement generally is chronological within each type of activity. The files on general correspondence, BEd/OTC Restructuring Committee, FEUT/OISE merger, and the Academic Board are grouped separately and in the order described above.

Professor McLeod’s planning calendars have been filed in B1996-0030/030(02).

Manuscripts and publications

Over the years Professor McLeod initiated a number of book proposals (mostly edited), a few of which were realized. Some that were not are also documented here. He also wrote a number of articles and compiled bibliographies and chronologies. This series also contains many of his editorials from Multiculturalism, and his book reviews, but letters asking him to review books are mostly filed in Series 1, with a few in Series 4.

Most of the titles in this series are in manuscript form, often with accompanying correspondence and notes. There are more manuscripts for articles than for books. The manuscripts are arranged, within each accession, in chronological order of publication date and by the date written, if not published. The articles document his principal interests – multicultural education and health – though his wider interests are also reflected, as in “Josiah Wedgwood and the potter’s art.” There is also a file on the second issue of the Journal of Ethno-Development, which McLeod co-edited. There are whole or partial drafts of several books, two of which are untitled, but including Aboriginal Languages and Education (1988) and Health and Culture: exploring the relationships (1993). There is also a file on the production of his video, ‘Putting it all together’ (1991), and drafts of ‘The multicultural experience at FEUT’ (1995-1996) (both in B1997-0013/002 and 003). The series concludes with a typescript of Guiseppe Masi’s autobiographical Like a Dream: as short story of my life.
