Eric Aldwinckle Collection

  • UTA 1245
  • Fonds
  • 1920-[196-]

These black and white photographs depict the University of Toronto campus and its buildings. Included are unique images of houses along St George St. as well as several winter campus scenes, aerials and elevated views. They were collected by Eric Aldwinckle, who, although best know as a war artist, illustrated Morley Callaghan's book The Varsity Story, as well as several covers and inside drawings for the Varsity Graduate. The photographs in this collection may have been collected to support his work in this capacity.

Bernard Etkin fonds

  • UTA 1247
  • Fonds
  • 1938-2004

Fonds consists of 2 accessions.

Accession B1984-0008 is 1 box of speeches and writings, 1938-1979, which are described in Series 3.

The remainder of the fonds is in accession B2004-0017. These records document much of the research, consultant and teaching activities performed by Professor Etkin over his lengthy career from the mid 1940s to the present with the greatest emphasize being on the 1950s to 1980s time period. Series 1, (Correspondence and Committees) gives a good overview of his professional activities and relationships. 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.

Barry French fonds

  • UTA 1293
  • Fonds
  • 1955-1999

To varying degrees, records in this fonds document key components of Prof. French’s career both within UTIAS and as an outside consultant. His education in the newly developing field of aerospace science is documented in his course notes found in Series 10. These notes were kept specifically to document the early teaching of this subject since Prof. French took courses from Professors Ben Etkin and Irvine Glass whose papers are also held by the University Archives. General correspondence files in Series 1, talks and papers found in Series 2 and 3 as well as course lectures found in Series 7 document his broad role as a university professor including his publishing activities, his relationship with other professionals and his role as an academic advisor and teacher. His role as an administrator both at the University and on the boards of professional associations are only marginally documented in two small series of records: University of Toronto, Series 6 and Professional Associations Series 8.

While Series 5 Research is by far the largest series in this fonds, it is mainly confined to the latter part of his career relating to research supporting SCIEX. Except for a few files, early research files are absent from this accession and researchers interested in research in the 1960s leading to Prof. French’s participation in the Viking project will have to make due with records found in Series 2 and 3 and possibly some correspondence in Series 1. The strength of this fonds is how well it documents the research at SCIEX, one of Canada’s most successful companies to evolve from a university research facility. Most records in Series 5, as well administrative files in Series 6 SCIEX, give a good picture of SCIEX’s evolution including the research undertaken, the funding sources available at the time, the business strategies that let to its success and specifically the instrumental role Prof. French played in this commercial enterprise. These records will be of interest to anyone researching the commercialization and marketing of technology in the Canadian setting. SCIEX is also a successful example of cooperation between industry and a university with the support of government agencies.
