This fonds encompasses two accessions of personal records of John Munro, professor of economics at the University of Toronto and an internationally renowned specialist in Late Medieval economic history. The records document Prof. Munro’s academic activities beginning with his university education at the University of British Columbia and Yale University from 1956 to 1965 until his retirement from the University of Toronto in 2003. This is an extensive body of records documenting the contributions of a recognized expert in European economic history from 1200 to 1600.
The accession is arranged in eight series reflecting for the most part the original order of the records as they were received by the University Archives. Among the larger series are Series 2 Correspondence which contains a fairly complete record of his ongoing communications with colleagues, editors, students and former students relating to academic activities as professor, author, advisor and mentor. Almost a third of this series contains letters of reference relating to student performance and professional evaluation required for employment by colleagues and former students. Series 4 is closely related to Series 2 in that it contains subject files relating to activities in associations, conferences and other organizations. Series 5 and 6 document his research activity in the form of grant applications and his teaching activities mainly at the University of Toronto, although there are some materials relating to courses taught at the University of British Columbia in the mid 1960’s. Lectures for many courses are in the form of essay length narratives, rather than point form notes and thus form a very complete record of the content of his courses as delivered to his students.
By far the largest volume of records is contained in Series 7 Reports and Papers and Series 8 Publications. These two series comprise nearly 50% of the accession’s extent, and provide a very complete record of Prof. Munro’s formal literary works from the earliest years of his academic career including various versions of manuscripts, page proofs, corrections and correspondence. In total, they comprise 79% of his scholarly publications and 48% of his papers as recorded on his curriculum vitae as described on the two appendices in the finding aid.
