University of Toronto: Students, Post-doctoral fellows and visiting professors

Professor Guillet was highly respected and sought after by students and senior scientists alike, both in Canada and abroad. Over the years he supervised 28 PhD theses, 26 masters degrees and 50 post-doctoral fellows and research associates. Some arrived as part of exchange student programs with Dutch, German and Russian institutions. Some of the exchange programs were also for professors, especially those from the Soviet Union/Russia. Guillet’s students or post-doctoral fellows now hold academic positions in Canadian, American, British, Japanese, Polish and Singaporean universities and positions in industry in many countries. The emphasis in this series is on their activities at the University of Toronto, but there is also correspondence and associated material in files, especially at the post-doctoral level, of their earlier and subsequent academic and research work.

The series begins with a file contain student registers and lists of students (1963-1993), followed by correspondence from students wishing to study under Professor Guillet and relating to fourth-year undergraduate students and summer research assistants. There is also correspondence with students regarding their theses reports (1973-1996), applications from students in China (1983-1990), and letters of reference for students and administrative and academic colleagues (1985-2002).

The remaining files are grouped into the following categories: ‘undergraduates’, ‘exchange students’, ‘Masters students’, ‘PhD students’ and ‘post-doctoral fellows, research associates and visiting (including exchange) professors’. There is a also a final category of ‘demonstrators’, ‘research assistants’ and ‘research associates’. There are some files of general correspondence and files on individuals within each section are arranged alphabetically. Where students took both masters and doctoral degrees, the files are with the higher degree. Many of the students and fellows left their lab books with Professor Guillet. Those of only one student, Guojun Liu (now a senior professor at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario), as a doctoral candidate have been retained as a sampling (his masters notebooks were not kept). A few lab books relating to specific projects have also been retained; these are filed in Series 5 and 7. Files on individuals are arranged alphabetically within each section.

The undergraduate files consist mostly of the final project reports, with some notes, progress reports and covering correspondence. The earliest exchange proposals were with Russia in the late 1960s; there is a file of correspondence, primarily with notes on research projects at the University of Toronto (1969-1990), notebooks, and then files on research projects of the Moscow Institute of Fine Chemical Technology. There are individual files for the Dutch exchange students and some for the German, along with a file of covering correspondence for the latter. The masters student files may contain correspondence, research notes and progress reports. Many of the doctoral student files also contain programs for oral examinations and thesis defence, and appraisals of theses. A few also contain drafts of papers co-authored with Professor Guillet.

The correspondence in the graduate and post-doctoral files address a wide variety of issues, including those relating to of bringing students and post-doctoral fellows to the University of Toronto, research generally, and the specific problems associated with individual research projects. There are also some letters of reference. In addition to correspondence, the files on post-doctoral fellows contain research notes and reports. Some have research proposals, drafts of papers co-authored with Professor Guillet, and evaluations of the programs under which they came to the University of Toronto (for example, the special program for Chinese scholars). In addition to the usual material, the research notebook of one of Professor Guillet’s first post-doctoral fellows, Mitsura Koike from Japan (1964-1966), has been retained.

University of Toronto: administration

Most of Professor Morton’s files relating to his time as principal of Erindale College remain with the administrative records of the College. The files in this series contain additional material relating to his activities at Erindale, and to his activities elsewhere at the University of Toronto, particularly committee work. Records relating to his teaching activities are found in Series 5.

The arrangement of the files in this series moves from the general to the specific, beginning with Dr. Morton’s appointment files (1969-1993), to wider University matters and its committees, then to issues specific to Erindale College, to the Department of History and Dr. Morton’s work with his students. Of the numerous University committees of which Dr. Morton was a member, three are documented here: the Academic Affairs Committee of the Governing Council (1981-1983), the Presidential Advisory Committee on Instructional Media, which he chaired (1980-1982), and the Presidential Advisory Committee on Institutional Strategies (1982-1983). There are references to some of his other committee work in the general correspondence file on the University (1979-1992). There are also files of his letters-to-the-editor, newspaper articles on the University of Toronto and education, and on the curriculum at Erindale College.

The bulk of this series, however, consists of correspondence with students and former students (often relating to letters of reference), and there is a file of student exam results covering Dr. Morton’s teaching career at the University (1968-1974). There are also files on graduate students, particularly whose theses he supervised. These files provide insights into the problems faced by graduate students in the researching and writing of their research papers and theses, and into the role played by Dr. Morton in guiding them and ensuring that they completed their work.

An orientation address by Dr. Morton to new faculty members, accompanied by a large number of slides, has been removed from box 008, file 05 to Box 001P, file 01.

Vault photographs

These images are those selected mainly for printing in Acland’s book, Medieval Structure : the Gothic Vault. University of Toronto Press, 1972. Some may not have actually made it into the final printing. They show architectural features of various structures throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Originally these were probably taken around the same time as European photographs described in Series 8 – possibly during the same trip since many of the places are common to both series of prints.

This series contains the following arrangement:

/004P 247 photoprints: b&w ; 8x10 or smaller
4 photoprints: colour ; 8x10 or smaller
Mainly 8x10s these prints were identified as “European Arches”. Most are identified by location and have therefore been sorted alphabetically by place name. Except for a small number, Acland was the photographer. Some are numbered and mostly likely correspond to their use in the book but the correlation is unclear since the illustrations in the book are not numbered.

/004P 31 photoprints: b&w ; 8x10
These prints were originally arranged by chapter and this arrangement has been kept. Notations made by Acland on the back often note the page number.

/005P- 197 negatives: b&w ; 8x10

/007P These are enlarged negatives likely used for printing. Each is individually foldered since adhesive from the tape used to border their edges has made them tacky. Originally, all would have been sorted by chapter but this arrangement was lost. Whatever arrangement existed was maintained and where possible folders are annotated with the page number. The original folder has also been kept since it lists all images found in that chapter. Negatives not matched to their chapters are filed in Box /007. It is possible that some of these may not have been used in the book.

/001P 57 negatives : b&w ; 4x3.5 or smaller
29 negatives : colour ; 21/4’ x 21/4”
These are mostly original negatives of vaults many of which Acland identified. Some appear to copy negatives. There is no particular arrangement although original groupings were maintained.

Video recordings of Nouwen

Series consists of video recordings of Nouwen as lecturer, retreat leader, conference leader and television program guest. Many of these videocassettes were given to Nouwen by the organizers's of events in which he participated.

In February, 1969, after having written a portion of the manuscript, he approached his former executive assistant for advice on its potential for publication and for commentary and assistance with the manuscript. Over the next six months Land compiled extensive notes for revisions, but the project was eventually abandoned.

The files in this portion of the series contain photocopies of the typescript produced up to April, 1969 by Gordon and which were annotated by Land; a revised typescript (May, 1969); revisions made early in June by Brian Land; an appendix (26 June); later notes for and drafts made by Land of chapters 16-21, and inserts for various chapters (June-August).

The files include her official record of service, correspondence, base librarian reports, newsletters, memorabilia, copies of period newspapers that she annotated, and post-war correspondence, newsletters, and news items relating to the Wren Association of Toronto. The arrangement is largely chronological.

West African Rice Development Association (WARDA)

The initial aim of WARDA was to have an entirely native West African organization that would apply the latest in rice technology to the problems peculiar to their area, but political interference meant that WARDA never functioned effectively. By the end of 1986, with CGIAR having resolved to continue its support of the organization, Omond Solandt was asked to coach those involved in it on how to operate within a CG style of centre. In 1987 he made three trips to Africa and, while there and in subsequent meetings, worked to ensure that an effective structure and Board were put in place. His official involvement with WARDA ended about August, 1987.

The correspondence, minutes, background papers, reports, photographs and publications provide detailed information about the problems WARDA faced and the problems Solandt and others encountered in resolving them.

West Indian Students' Association

The West Indian Students' Association (WISA) at the University of Toronto was established in the "early eighties". The purpose of the organization is to acquaint the general student body with the social, cultural and economic aspects of the Caribbean region. This goal is realized through a diverse program of social,cultural and educational activities.

This series consists of correspondence, brochures, flyers, clippings relating to Mr. Pieters' involvement as cooordinator, Caribbean Rising, one of the social activities of the WISA, during 1994 at New College.

Wilderness Research Foundation

During the late 1980s the future of the Quetico-Superior Wilderness Research Center at Mukluk Bay, Minnesota was very much in question. The Wilderness Research Foundation, which sponsored it, was assessing its future at a time when its founder was withdrawing from active participation prior to his death in December, 1988. Dr. Solandt was initially a member of the Advisory Committee to the Board of the Foundation and later a member of the Board. He pressed for the continuation of wilderness research at Mukluk Bay and left the Board in 1991 only when he felt that this would be achieved.

The correspondence, minutes, memoranda and reports written by Dr. Solandt and others, along with articles and institutional reports, clearly document the relationship between the Foundation and the Center, the work done by the latter, the problems it faced, and the policies that were developed in an attempt to save it.

Series is arranged chronologically. A list of files is available.

Works of Art

Frieda Fraser was a amateur artist who sketched most of her life. While she drew only for herself and her friends, the items in this series, and scattered through her correspondence and notebooks elsewhere, demonstrate more than a little talent. Dr. Fraser had a good eye for form (human, animal, or nature) and the small events in life that amused her. Her letters to Bud are a particularly revealing source of her artistic humour.

The earliest sketch here is one she made as a child on 30 September, 1906 and the latest date from 1964. Included are two fine watercolours, untitled but probably of the Go Home Bay area where she often vacationed. Dr. Fraser also experimented with block printing and there are several examples in this series.

Works of art

This series consists of two signed water colours, samples of a larger collection still in the position of his family. Both pictures are scenes near his cottage on Garden Island in the St. Lawrence River between Wolfe Island and the City of Kingston. The watercolour of the sailboat “The Curlew” was painted in a harbour near the cottage of his former student , friend and colleague, Donald Swainson, professor of history at Queen’s University in 1984. The snow scene is a view of his son walking from the cottage in the winter of 1990. This was the one and only occasion that Prof. McNaught agreed to visit the cottage in the winter.
