Faculty of Law activities

This series is divided into two sub-series, ‘Activities’ and ‘Correspondence with students’. The first sub-series contains correspondence, memoranda, notes, reports, and lecture material documenting Professor Friedland’s activities within the faculty and the faculty’s affairs generally. The ‘course’ files contain Professor Friedland’s outlines, notes, assignments and examinations for his course in criminal law. There are also files on the publications, Faculty of Law Review and Nexus. The remaining files in this sub-series relate primarily to Professor Friedland’s activities with the ‘Class of 5T8’s fortieth anniversary reunion in 1998 and to the Faculty’s fiftieth anniversary celebrations in 1999-2000. This sub-series ends with files on Professor Friedland’s 1997 report on the grading practices policy at the Faculty and on the Faculty’s marks scandal in 2001.

The records in this sub-series contain correspondence, memoranda and notes and reports; class outlines, assignments and other material; minutes of meetings for anniversary celebrations, along with programmes and publications (including drafts), sheet music and songs, and a video, notices, press releases and press clippings.

The second sub-series, ‘Correspondence with students’, contains correspondence, memoranda, curriculum vitae (but not student transcripts and marks, which have been removed), greeting cards, postcards and the occasional offprint relating primarily to references requested from Professor Friedland, and a file of memorabilia.

Most of the reference requests relate to applications for graduate school, academic appointments, and positions in legal firms and for clerkships in the Supreme Court of Canada and other courts. Others relate to academic honours – awards, prizes and scholarships. Some of the files also contain correspondence relating to courses taken and theses supervised, though most of this type of correspondence is located in ‘Series III.: Correspondence’ above. Some of the requests are more prosaic, such as asking Professor Friedland to sign passport applications and photos. Also included are memos from Professor Friedland to officials in the Faculty of Law, such as the summer student co-ordinator, about specific students. In their letters, these students and former students provide information about their current activities which sometimes have taken them far afield, examples being the Rwanda genocide case, the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, and legal work in Japan.

Of significance is the manuscript for his acclaimed The !Kung San: Men and Women and Work in a Foraging Society. For researchers interested in the history of anthropology as a profession both in Canada and the United States, there are several files on the American Anthropological Association (Series 5) and the activist group Anthropologists for Radical Political Action. Finally, his early teaching career at Harvard University, Rutgers University and the University of Toronto from 1972 to 1975 is documented in Series 6.

A further accession of records (B2012-0012), includes continuation material in the existing series.

Helen Sawyer Hogg fonds

  • UTA 1383
  • Fonds
  • [ca. 1890]-2004, predominant 1926-1993

This fonds contains the personal and professional papers of Dr. Helen Sawyer Hogg documenting her contribution to professional astronomy, her high regard as a popular educator as well as her responsibilities as a parent, daughter, wife and friend. The records have been arranged into series either by type of record or to reflect a certain type of activity. Records documenting various aspects of her career are filed first, followed by papers reflecting her personal life.

Included is both professional and personal correspondence; records relating to her activities on associations, boards and organizations; records such as draft manuscripts, correspondence and outlines and data relating to her publishing activities and research; papers relating to her education and her teaching responsibilities; as well as diaries and family papers series.

Because Dr. Hogg's career spanned nearly seven decades during a time astronomy as a discipline was still developing both nationally and internationally, these records are not only useful to those researching Dr. Hogg's achievements but will be insightful to those researchers studying the development of astronomy as a science and profession. Moreover, Dr. Hogg was a woman in a field of science, which is still dominated by men. Those studying women's history may find Dr. Hogg's personal records a useful case study in one woman's success in a largely male dominated profession.

Contained within the Helen S. Hogg personal records are three sous-fonds: Frank S. Hogg [1922-1952], her first husband and also an astronomer at the David Dunlap Observatory; Prof. Ruth Northcott [1932-1969], close personal friend and professional colleague of Helen Hogg, also on staff at the D.D.O.; Dr. C.A. Chant [193- - 194-], director emeritus of the D.D.O and head of the Department of Astronomy at the University of Toronto from 1904-1935. These sous-fonds are individually described and have been filed after the Helen Hogg personal records.
