Internal reports

This subseries consists of generally unpublished Internal reports, written alone or with colleagues on various subjects such as asymmetric spectrometers, two-lens spectrometer, magnetic fields near magnetic lenses, and the precision positron comparator. The report entitled "A proposed superconducting-cavity electron accelerator for the University of Toronto" (Nov. 1974) was not funded and according to Prof. Paul "determined many a change in my subsequent career". For correspondence relating with other University of Toronto colleagues see Series I.

B2009-0041/001(04)–(05) consists of notes on the Nilsson Model; and "Atomic Collisions with Positrons", Part III of a report supporting the application of members of the University of Toronto Physics Department for a superconducting electron linear accelerator (Sep. 1974).

Photographs

Photographs in this sub-series document Farrar’s extended family in Cattaraugus and New York state from about the 1870s to the early 1900s. There is a large collection of nineteenth century Carte de Visites and Portrait Cards of his parents, T.J. Farrar and Marie Farrar, and their relatives. Some are identified while others are not. Also among these photographs are images of the various Farrar homes in Cattaraugus, views of group outings such as picnics and parties ca. 1890s, as well as general views of Cattaraugus. Also found among these older photographs are three photographs of skeletons or skulls. The photographer of these experimental type images is unknown but is most probably a member of the Farrar family or C.B. Farrar himself. These photographs are grouped and arranged according to subject as outlined above.

This sub-series also includes photographs of Dr. Farrar’s immediate family, mainly his children, Evelyn and Clarice, and his first wife, Evelyn, before 1940. There are also two photographs of Joan Farrar, his second wife. There are numerous professional portraits and extensive snapshots documenting his early life with Evelyn, his various domiciles and the girls’ childhood. Also included in this series are portraits of Farrar from his early childhood up to around the 1950s. Included are portraits by Milne Studio of Toronto, Frederick William Lyonde and Sons of Toronto, and a reproduction of a painting of Dr. Farrar by artist, Archie Barns. Formal portraits are filed by person at the beginning while snapshots are filed afterwards and are grouped by subject and roughly sorted by date.

For family portraits and snapshots – See Box /002P.
For oversize photographs relating to either – See Box /005P (01) and /006P (01)-(05) and /007P (01).

Historical photographs

Jones, in his capacity of as Engineering Archivist, collected numerous photographs documenting the history of the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering and its predecessor the School of Practical Science. Included in this collection are numerous portraits of faculty, images of staff, and of student groups such as graduating classes and clubs, as well as student activities. There are photos of the Ajax Campus as well as images of the Survey Camp at Gull Lake. Finally, there are few photographs of University buildings.

Contemporary photographs

Jones was an avid participant at many university activities and events especially those related specifically to the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering. Photographs in this series reflect his role as Engineering Archivist as well as his interest in amateur photography. Contained in this series are photographs both taken by Jones and collected by him to document events such as convocations, memorials, award ceremonies, dinners, graduation balls, dignitary visits, dedications, building openings, retirements and open houses. There are also images that specifically document Jones attending many of the numerous events as well as other professional activities.

The most well documented events include: the Engineering Centenary celebrations in 1973; the mounting of the lintel from the Old S.P.S. building and the installation of Becca's H in front of the Galbraith building; the fire, rebuilding and reopening of the Sir Sandford Fleming building 1977-82; the excavation of the site of the old Observatory, 1979; the installation of John Black Aird as Chancellor of the University; the design, construction and installation of the Sundial, 1993.

Later advisory work

Records relating to post 1992 work that Prof. Cameron did with the Ontario Government, providing advice on constitutional matters throughout the 1990s, and then with the Panel on the Future of Government in Ontario (2002-2004). Prof. Cameron (with Graham White and Celine Mulhern) produced Democracy in Ontario, a report for the Panel on the Future Role of Government in Ontario, in August 2003.

Phases

Ontario Government Records on Constitutional Renewal records relate to a variety of meetings and groups (including those in other subseries) that were kept by Prof. Cameron, typically in chronological order (ex. one file per month) or by project phases. These files include minutes, draft reports, briefing books, correspondence, and other records.

Multilateral Meeting on the Constitution

Records relating to the Multilateral Meetings on the Constitution include lists of delegates, meeting transcripts, legal decisions, meeting reports, records of meetings, status reports, drafts, and memos. Many of these records are mixed in with records for the Continuing Committee on the Constitution (see above).

Continuing Committee on the Constitutions

The series also contains significant documentation from the Continuing Committee on the Constitution (CCC), including reports, proposals, drafts, discussion papers, briefing notes, background documents, proposed clauses, responses from provincial governments, and agendas. Records include the opinions and reactions of many of the provinces with regards to proposed constitutional and senate reform. Records from the Multilateral Meetings on the Constitution (see next section) may also be filed in some of these folders.

Constitutional Advisory Group

Prof. Cameron also chaired the Constitutional Advisory Group (CAG) in his capacity at the Ministry of Intergovernmental Affairs. One of its goals was to promote the Ontario Government's proposal for the inclusion of a social charter in the Constitution. Records from this group include correspondence and memos, proposals, agendas and minutes, and notes. These records were typically filed chronologically; this arrangement has been maintained.

Constitutional Working Group

The series begins with the records of the Constitutional Working Group (CWG), whose purpose was to "advise the Attorney General and support the Deputy Ministers' Committee in the work which it is undertaking in the post-Meech environment."
