Course descriptions

This subseries consists of records relating to course descriptions of courses that Prof MacDowell taught at U of T, York, and McMaster. These records consist of syllabi, course descriptions, and reading lists.

Subject files

This subseries consists of files relating to activities of particular interest to Prof. McNaught during his tenure as professor in the Department of History (1965-1984), and his continuing interest in the faculty’s professional association after his retirement. Included among this small group are files relating to the Faculty Committee on Vietnam (1967-1969), University League for Social Reform (1964-1966), applications for an unfilled one year appointment in American History (1969-1972), and two files on the University of Toronto Faculty Association (1995-1997).

Letters of recommendation

This series consists of chronologically arranged letters of recommendation for graduate students and for other students with whom he was involved indirectly. These files are followed by individual files containing correspondence such as letters of recommendation prepared during their years at University of Toronto and after graduation.

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."

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.
