Ernest Buckler

This series contains extensive documentation on Claude Bissell's research and relationship with Canadian poet Ernest Buckler including a typescript and related publication letters relating to his book Ernest Buckler Remembered (University of Toronto Press, 1989).


Professor Fuss has served as a consultant to government and industry for many years, but only two projects are documented in this series, his work as a member of the Price Measurement Advisory Committee at Statistics Canada and a study he did for United Communications Ltd. on long distance telephone service in Canada.

Letters of Recommendation and Evaluation

The records in this series from B2008-0023 document Prof. Rayside’s roles as both a mentor to students and colleagues, as well as his role as a peer reviewer. This series consists of letters of recommendation written for students applying to scholarships, graduate schools, and employment. The correspondence covers the period from 1974 to 1995 and is grouped alphabetically. A second set of files including electronic files contain mainly reviews and evaluations. They include: letters of support for grant applications, awards, tenure and promotion; reader’s reports for peer review journals such as the Canadian Journal of Political Science as well as reviews of monographs and articles for various publishers; evaluations for both teaching assistants and Ph.D. students; and comments and evaluation for proposed research projects by peers.

The records in this series from B2013-0015 contain material documenting his academic staffing and promotions recommendations, his grant reviews, letters of recommendation he has written for students, research assessments, and research reviews as well as person or publication-specific files.

Atomic bomb

In September, 1945 the British Chiefs of Staff were invited by their American counterparts to send a mission to Japan to study the effects of the atomic bomb. Omond Solandt was loaned to the Scientific Advisor to the Army Council in the War Office to go as his representative. He went as a specialist in damage to military installations but, there being none of significance in Hiroshima or Nagasaki, spent most of his time studying the casualties from a medical perspective.

This series includes Dr. Solandt

Articles and Papers

This series contains research notes and data, drafts and final versions of some of MacIntosh’s articles and papers. Not all of these papers were published – many were written to present at various talks, or to document various medical procedures which MacIntosh was working on. Some of the records in this series appear to be papers that MacIntosh started and never completed, or that led to different papers all together. The series also contains several papers that MacIntosh either co-wrote, or helped to edit.


This series documents Prof. Munro’s teaching activities as they relate to courses delivered to undergraduate and graduate students during his first teaching appointment at University of British Columbia (1964-1968) and at the University of Toronto (1968- 2013). The University of British Columbia courses include History 304, “Economic and social history of the Middle Ages”; Economics 320, “Economic development of Modern Europe”; and History 416, “France in the Middle Ages”. The UBC files include course outlines, essay topics, examinations and typescripts of lectures.

Files for University of Toronto courses are understandably more extensive and include course outlines, reading lists, examination questions, typescripts of lectures, and overheads (for two courses offered after 1995).

The overheads apply to ECO 301Y and 303Y. ECO 301Y, “The economic history of Late-Medieval and Early-Modern Europe, 1300-1750”, was offered from September, 2004. It was the same as ECO 201Y, but given at the third year with corresponding prerequisites (ECO 200Y/206Y and seven other courses). ECO 303Y, “The economic history of Modern Europe, 1750-1914”, was given from January, 1995 as a revised version of the former ECO 203Y, with corresponding pre-requisites (ECO 200Y/206Y plus seven other courses).


Series documents Prof. Hassanpour’s publishing activity, both as an author and editor. Material includes scholarly articles, encyclopedic entries, and reviews that cover the broad scope of Prof. Hassanpour’s research in social linguistics, media and communication theory, Kurdish culture, as well as peasant and nationalist movements. The series also includes documentation of Prof. Hassanpour’s work as an editor, in particular for the Gzing journal.

Laboratory notebooks

Includes four laboratory notebooks: two belonging to Williams and two belonging to individual students. They document how Williams organized his laboratory work and how he supervised his students' work.

Professional organizations

Dr. Biringer belonged to many professional and scientific organizations, of which two are represented here. He reviewed conference and transactions papers for the American Institute of Electrical Engineers; the file contains lists and notes for the period 1960-1964. His research made him a natural supporter of the Canadian Iron and Steel Research Association, which was formed in 1978, from which he retained early documents on the Association’s activities.

Laboratory Services Branch, Ministry of Health

This series documents Dr. Rhodes employment with the Ontario Ministry of Health as Associate Medical Director and later Medical Director of the Laboratory Services Branch, including appointment negotiations in 1969 to his retirement in 1977. Dr. Rhodes joined the Laboratory Services Branch following his resignation as Director of the School of Hygiene in 1970.
Files consistent of general correspondence and subject files relating to Autoclaving, Disinfectants in the TB Laboratory, Report of the Technical Advisory Committee on Laboratory Safety, Immunization and surveillance and Task force on care and transportation of communicable disease cases.


This series contains mainly galleys of pasted text for what is presumed to be Kaleidoscopes: selected writings of H.S.M. Coxeter. It also includes approximately 150-200 geometrical drawings, some original, others printed, but presumably most drawn by Coxeter for his many publications. Finally one file contains a typescript entitled “Summary of the first six chapters of Coxeter’s Projective Geometry, 1964”.

Series also contains copies of Professor Coxeter's publications on mathematical problems that have been translated into other languages. This series does not contain any manuscripts to any of the 12 books Coxeter wrote. Series 2, Professional Correspondence, contains some correspondence with publishers regarding some of his books.

Teaching files and lecture notes

Professor Falls kept detailed lecture notes throughout his career, along with supporting course outlines, memoranda, correspondence, notes, test and examination questions, and appraisals of his students work both in the classroom and in field work. For the latter, songagrams are often included in the files on bird songs and field notes are usually present; there are also a few detailed research reports by students. Selected student essays have also been retained.

The arrangement of the files in this series is chronological within each course number as laid out in the ‘Biology’ and ‘Zoology’ sections of the Faculty of Arts (later Arts and Science) calendars and the School of Graduate Studies calendars. The main exceptions are lecture notes that cover broad areas and thus more than one course and lectures delivered by individuals other than Falls himself. Most of the zoology courses relate to some aspect of ecology. The most thoroughly documented course is ZOO 223 (ecology) which became ZOO 323 (animal ecology) in 1974.

Alpha/numeric courses, ie. 1a to 3z, are general undergraduate courses and single and double digit courses, ie. 4 to 31, are honours courses. With the revamping of the curriculum in the late 1960s a new system of course numbers was introduced, BIO 100, ZOO 200, etc. followed often by letters such as F (fall term), S (spring term),Y (full year) and H (summer course).

Professional activities: Council of Ontario Universities

The Council of Ontario Universities (COU) was formed on December 3, 1962 as the “Committee of Presidents of Provincially Assisted Universities and Colleges of Ontario,” with its current name being adopted in 1971. The mandate of the COU is to “build awareness of the university sector’s contributions to the social, economic and cultural well-being of the province and the country, as well as the issues that impact the sector’s ability to maximize these contributions.” It works with Ontario’s publicly assisted universities and one associate member institution, the Royal Military College of Canada. This series documents the activities of a number of its committees and task forces, which are detailed below, approximately in order of activity.

Professor Lang was a member of the COU’s Committee on Enrolment Statistics and Projections from 1976 to 1990. In 1982-1983 he sat on its Special Committee on BILD Administrative Procedures and from 1987 to 1991 was a member of its Research Advisory Group. In 1991 he was invited to be part of a small task force to present proposals to the government for an income contingent repayment plan for Ontario students. Throughout much of the 1990s, he was involved with the COU’s Committee on University Accountability and the Performance Indicators for the Public Postsecondary System in Ontario project, better known as the Performance Indicators Project, the purpose of which was to assess the overall Ontario postsecondary sector.

He was also a member of four task forces: Audit Guidelines (1998-2000), Secondary School Issues (1998-2005), Student Financial Assistance (2006-), and Quality Assurance (2008-2010).
The Task Force on Secondary School Issues was established to assess the evaluation of students in the new secondary school program of studies and to make recommendations regarding the monitoring of grading practices and standards.

The COU’s Quality and Productivity Task Force work was to outline “all the quality and productivity initiatives” undertaken to “showcase results for the government’s increased investment in universities.” Its report, presented in March 2006, was followed by the COU Task Force on Quality Measurements, chaired by David Naylor of the University of Toronto. It was charged with addressing the “broad issues related to quality measurement, developing the long-term strategies for COU’s work with the government and the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO).” [1]

Files in B2018-0001 include correspondence with U of T and COU colleagues, as well as further records related to his role on the COU’s Committee on University Accountability. Also included are further records about the COU's Task Force on Quality Assurance (2008-2010), including its subsequent transition and implementation phase.

The files in this series contain correspondence, memoranda, notes, minutes of meetings, drafts of reports, and assorted background reports and other documentation.

Publications and manuscripts

This series reflects Professor Bay’s research interests that were published in academic journals, as well as sources for public consumption such as magazines and newsletters. The material in this series includes tributes, letters to the editor, commentaries, and publications (books, book chapters, and articles). Related material is arranged with the corresponding manuscript which may include documents such as correspondence, drafts, publication releases, and royalty statements. Additional correspondence related to publications and manuscripts may be located in the correspondence series.

National Selective Service Advisory Board

The series consists of the records related to Gilbert Jackson’s involvement in the National Selective Service Advisory Board from the 1942-1945. A commission that was empowered in 1942, the National Selective Service Advisory Board oversaw the mobilization of civilian human resources and military during the Second World War . Ruled under the direction of Deputy Minister of Labour Arthur MacNamara, the commission’s mobilization efforts emphasized conciliation, compromise and de-centralization as they focused on issues regarding the recruitment of Native Canadians for home defence, the essential control of the coal labour force in Nova Scotia, the deferment policies affecting university students and the control of women within the primary textile industry. A government body that had weak administrative control and strong social opposition to required mobilization measures, the National Selective Service Advisory Board was short lived.

The files have been separated into two distinct functions: the minutes belonging to the National Selective Service Advisory Board Subcommittee on Industrial Relations (29 Jul. 1942-31 Aug. 1942) and National Selective Service Advisory Board (6 May 1942-21 Nov. 1945); and subject files, which include the orders-in-council (1942-1945), the Subcommittee on Industrial Relations’ general memoranda on industrial relations and draft resolutions (1942), the National Selective Service Advisory Board’s memoranda on general information (1942-1943) and a submission to the Royal Commission on Coal on a survey that was completed on data workers in the coal mines of Nova Scotia (17 Mar. 1945).

For additional reports written by Gilbert Jackson to other federal government boards, commissions and special committees, see Series 4 (Canadian Tariff Board), Series 5 (National War Labour Board), Series 7 (Other Federal Government research and reports), and Series 9 (Gilbert Jackson & Associates).

University of Toronto. Department of Astronomy

This series documents Dr. Hogg's role as a member of the Department of Astronomy, especially her responsibilities as a teacher. Included are attendance lists and grades, laboratory exercises, term papers (1963-64), tests and examinations, and lecture notes. There is also reports and related correspondence showing Hogg's participation on Ph.D. Oral examining boards as well as a file of correspondence relating to the evaluation and recommendation of students and graduates of the Department.

Apart from records that relate directly to Dr. Hogg's teaching function there are also some records related to general administrative issues. Among these are files containing progress and work reports, requests for grants to the National Research Council, correspondence on Dr. Hoggs' salary and tenure status as well as general issues at the David Dunlap Observatory.

Arrangement is by type of record, following as described above.


This series consists of course files containing lectures, course outlines and reading lists for courses taught by Prof. at Lee at Harvard, Rutgers, the University of Toronto, the Marxist Institute, and others.

Excerpts, talks and alumni events

Over the course of writing the history of the University, Professor Friedland worked closely with the alumni and publicity offices to ensure that the 175th anniversary celebrations received as wide a press as possible. As a result excerpts from his book-in-progress, articles, interviews and news items appeared regularly in University publications, particularly the University of Toronto Bulletin and University of Toronto Magazine, and occasionally in local and national newspapers. He also acted as an advisor to two alumni calendars that appeared in 2001 and 2002.

As the anniversary date approached, the frequency of these appearances increased, and Professor Friedland was the guest on a number of television programs. He also travelled across Canada, and even to Berlin, Germany, to address alumni groups.
In May of 2002, he presented a paper on the writing of the history of the University to the 71st Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities in Toronto (see box /034(02) and appendix 2).

This series “contains files on…excerpts from the book, newspaper articles, TV and radio interviews, alumni events, and many other matters connected with the 175th anniversary of the University and the publication of the book” It also contains reviews of the book and some comments thereon.

The files in this series are broadly grouped into three categories and arranged chronologically within each: university publications, alumni publications and groups, and “other” addresses.

Government-commissioned and other research

The principal elements in this series consist of the files Dr. Friedland assembled while a consultant to the Ontario Justice Review Committee and as a general consultant to the Office of the Attorney General for Ontario. The series ends with a small number of files on other activities, ranging from contract work for the government of the North West Territories to providing advice on the Hepatitis C class action lawsuit in Ontario.

As Dr. Friedland notes in his introduction, he was asked in 1998 to “help organize and draft the report for a committee [the Criminal Justice Review Committee] that was looking at the working of the criminal justice system in Ontario.” Its report was published in 1999. Most of the files relating to the Committee’s work, as might be expected, remain with the government of Ontario but there are still a substantial number in this series. Dr. Friedland’s correspondence and the briefs, memoranda and reports, often heavily annotated by him, along with his notes and the drafts of the Committee’s report, clearly demonstrate the role that he played in the process.

The consulting contracts Dr. Friedland signed with the Office of the Attorney General, beginning in 1996, enabled him to participate in the review of a “range of policy issues that were being debated in the department. These included issues relating to a possible court services agency and questions concerning devolution of a number of criminal justice matters to other bodies, including devolution of responsibility for the Provincial Offences Act to municipalities.” In addition, Dr. Friedland’s involvement in departmental roundtable discussions and the Crown Policy Manual Review Committee, provides insights into the high-profile legal cases of Guy Paul Morin and Paul Bernardo, and issues arising therefrom, including “jail-house confessions and the forensic laboratories”. Again, extensive notes and annotation complement the correspondence, memoranda, background and briefing notes, and reports found in the files.

Studio work, exhibitions and performances

This series begins with Frederick Urban’s formative years as an artist when he created a large number of exhibits and participated in some performance pieces, primarily in Halifax and New York City. For some of these, he drew on his personal experiences. Two examples are An Acadian genealogy (April 1977), inspired by his family roots in the Acadian region of Brunswick, and Monk (July 1977) by his training as a novice in 1961-1962.

The files cover his years at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (1976-1977), continue through his post-graduate studies at the Whitney Museum of American Art, his interest in the art and architecture of Italy (spurred on by his meeting Giuseppe Panza di Biumo), and several installations connected to Canadian architecture and architectural history. The last exhibition, ‘The place of work’, accompanied the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada’s annual conference in Winnipeg in 1989. The arrangement is primarily chronological.

The series ends with several files on performance pieces, the most significant being Anne Wilson and her Butler’s lives of the saints, which was performed both in Halifax and New York City, and an oversized folder of posters for exhibitions and performance pieces collected by Urban.

Some of the exhibitions and performance pieces contain correspondence, drawings and sketches, photographs and/or slides. A number are represented by a combination of photographs and slides or slides alone, with no textual accompaniment. There are also several oversized folders of sketches and drawings for of posters for exhibitions and performance pieces with which Urban was involved and one of posters for events which he may have attended but to which he did not contribute.

Research and Writings

This series consists of unpublished and published manuscripts written by Helen Lenskyj over the course of her career. Includes: materials related to Lenskyj’s books, journal articles, reviews, reports, workshop presentations, conference addresses, and newspaper and magazine articles. Also included are manuals written by Lenskyj while she worked for the Ontario Ministry of Culture and Recreation.

The bulk of these manuscripts are subdivided into their respective subject areas, based on the four primary research interests (gender and sport, sexual education, education, and Olympic critiques) of Lenskyj during her career. This is the arrangement in which the manuscripts where donated and this order has been preserved.

Manuscripts and publications

Dr. Evans’ formal publication list is modest and contains only a small sampling of his prodigious output of ideas, most of which are contained in his correspondence, internal memoranda and reports on whatever organization he was working for at a particular time, and in his addresses. The most significant of the last were revised for publication and are included in this series.


Dr. Fowler published seven books during his career relating to his specialty in child development. This series documents six of these books in varying degrees of completeness. For example, there is only one file on his 1978 books, Day Care and its effects on early development: a study of group and home care in multiethnic, working class families and its companion work, Guides to early day care and teaching: supplement to Day Care and its effects on early development. Early reviews of the manuscript in 1976 initially written with Nasim Khan, found it unacceptable for publication in its current form. It was ultimately published by OISE in 1978 and in 1979 an agreement was reached for it to be published in Italian.

The files documenting Infant and child care, published in 1980 along with its companion Curriculum and Assessment Guide contain correspondence with the publisher and reviews during the production of the book in 1979-1980 as well as later correspondence with those requesting permission to reproduce sections from both works. Also included are working drafts and documentation on the infant adaptation scales developed with James Sutherland (1971-1979).

Dr. Fowler’s third major work was the two volume work, Potentials of Childhood, published in 1983 while on the staff at Tufts University. Fowler authored the first volume entirely. In it he provides “a historical survey and critical analysis of perspectives and research on early education and early experience.” Volume 2 “is a series of studies on early developmental learning following a strategy developed over the course of these and other studies.” [1] Fowler wrote the first three chapters of this volume, while other authors, Amy Swenson, Karen Ogston, Gloria Roberts and Douglas A. Steane wrote chapters 4 to 7. His co-authors were his students at OISE. Reviews of Volume 1 show that it was well received; Volume 2 was described by one reviewer as ‘disappointing’ and was especially critical of the chapters written by Fowler’s students, describing them as “detailed presentations of data better suited to professional journals”, and “poorly proofread” with “many missing or incorrect references”. [2] Volume 1 was reprinted in 1984.

Records relating to this book consist of administrative correspondence, financial notes, the contract with Lexington Books, publicity and review files, and drafts and working notes relating to chapters Fowler wrote for both volumes. There is no complete manuscript for either volume.

Early experience and the development of competence was a monograph edited by Fowler for the New Directions for child development series. Fowler’s contribution to this publication, in addition to his role as editor, was Chapter 5 “Early experiences of great men and women mathematicians”. Included in the records for this book are files for each chapter as well as his “Editor’s Notes” at the beginning of the book. Files include correspondence, notes and manuscripts. Finally, there are two files relating to his last (and yet unpublished?) book entitled Teaching your preschool child to read completed in 2000. The manuscript is remains in the hands of his family, and these files contain early drafts and some correspondence ca 1986- 1989.

Also contained in this series are files relating to what is believed to have been a proposed book Pathways to competence in the 1980s. Included are mainly drafts and notes for proposed chapters.
For records relating to his book and video entitled Talking from infancy. How to nurture & cultivate early language development. Cambridge, MA: Center for Early Learning and Child Care, 1990, 1995. (originally published by Brookline Books) see Series 10.

Bibliographic index

This series contains bibliographies compiled by Harris in the course of his research on the University of Toronto history and the history of higher education generally. Parts of these bibliographies were more than likely used in the publication of academic papers and bibliographies such as A Bibliography of Higher Education in Canada, 1960 (supplements 1971 and 1981), An Annotated List of the Legislative Acts Bearing on Higher Education in Ontario, A History of Higher Education in Canada, 1663-1960.

Walter Gordon

This series documents some of Walter Gordon’s activities from 1965 to 1969. It begins with a number of his addresses, an article and a few press clippings. These files are followed by an annotated copy of the Foreign Ownership and the Structure of Canadian Industry, the report of the Task Force on the Structure of Canadian Industry that he chaired, and press releases relating to it.

The remaining files relate to the attempt by Gordon to write his autobiography, Pursuit of an Ideal – Canadian Independence. 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).

Manuscripts and publications

This series contains covering correspondence and research material for and drafts and/or offprints of articles, chapters of books, and books written by Professor Safarian between 1957 and 1992 that are not included, or are only partially represented, in Accessions B89-0032 and B94-0019. The arrangement of the files is chronological and by title.

The first substantial new addition is the files relating to his 1980 study for the Department of Industry, Trade and Commerce, "National policies towards multinational enterprises: a comparison between the developed market countries."

Except for a single file on Governments and Multinationals (1983) [for drafts of this book see B94-0019, boxes 030 and 031] and several articles published between 1990 and 1992, the remainder of the series documents the research that Professor Safarian undertook for his book, Multinational Enterprise and Public Policy: A study of the industrial countries (1993). The files contain notes about and correspondence with the publisher and with interviewees. There are also notes for tables, data for dependent and independent variables, and summaries, and notes on secondary organization and research, chapter outlines, and on chapters 10 - 12. The research files for and drafts of this book are in B94-0019, boxes 032-040.

Grant applications

This series contains files documenting Prof. Eddie’s applications for financial assistance to conduct research for books, articles and other research activities from both external funding bodies as well as University of Toronto Research grants. It includes both successful and unsuccessful grant applications and includes correspondence, financial statements and applications. External grant applications include Canadian sources such as Connaught and the Social Sciences and Research Council of Canada (SSHRCC) among which is the application for assistance for the First conference on German cliometrics (1998). International grant files include, among others, the Guggenheim Fellowship, 1975, American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS), and IREX Exchange Fellowships. B2008-0027 contains files on a research proposal relating to the Austro-Hungarian Trade, 1878-1913 and correspondence with research assistant Mateusz Brozowski.

Applications were also made for General Research grants from the University of Toronto as well as the Centre for Russian and East European Studies (CREES), Joint Initiative in German and European Studies, and self-funded research grant leaves (1993-2001).


This series includes many of the talks and lectures that Prof. Prentice gave throughout her career. The talks reflect the evolution of Prof. Prentice’s research interest from her early interest in the history of education to her contributions to women’s history especially in relation to teaching and higher education. Files are arranged chronologically.


This series contains two reports belonging to Dr. Baker relating to First Nations native health care: “First Nations child health care study. Final Report” produced by staff at McMaster University in 1992 and “Sioux Lookout First Nations Health Authority. Final Report I: Health Needs Assessment” by T. Kue Young (1995).

Co-operative Housing Case Study: background materials & research

In addition to the attendance at meetings of CHAT and ASC board, staff and member meetings, and interviews and surveys of users and non-users, the researchers also collected background material on the Ashworth Square Housing Co-operative, and the United Church of Canada Board of Evangelism and Social Service National Housing Committee as one of its main funding bodies.

The background materials on the Ashworth Square Housing Co-operative itself include architectural drawings of the suite plans, a copy of the original proposal for its development, a copy of the occupancy agreement and by-laws, as well as general publicity for the co-op and information regarding the initial election of members to the Board of Directors. There are also seven b/w photographs of co-op members and children. The background materials on the United Church of Canada Board of Evangelism and Social Service National Housing Committee includes minutes of meetings of both the housing committee and the Technical Subcommittee, correspondence, reports, a brief on housing to Hon Paul Hellyer (Minister of Transport).

Professors Breslauer and Andrews also conducted research into housing issues, and co-op housing alternatives across Canada, the US and abroad. These files include information on the Co-op Housing Foundation, and the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation papers on co-op housing and in particular, on the Ashworth Square Housing Co-op. They also include information on co-op housing conferences, other housing co-operatives and organizations, and general housing issues and research published during this time period. Included in this series is a CBC radio special on housing cooperatives which includes a piece on the ASC.

Research notes

Research notes on various topics are arranged alphabetically. While Prof Nelson, kept copious amounts of detailed notes on the sources that he consulted, preserved here are only the notes that document some analysis of content. Sometimes analysis is in the form of drafts that either served as draft lectures or, in the case of materials on Anglo Russian Relations, drafts of his early writing for his book Land and Power. Other times, it is in the form of outlines, essays or summaries.

By far, the most extensive notes are those on Anglo Russian Relations and these directly relate to his book Land and Power. They have been filed at the front of the series and alphabetically arranged by their sub-topic (ie. Central Asia, Eastern question, Economics...) Filed after the Anglo Russian files are general themes on European history including such topics as Bismarck, Crimean War, French Revolution, International Relations, Peacemaking, Russian Trade and the World Wars.


This series contains of sampling of notes taken by Putnam on various of occasions. Some, for example relate directly to the research of his books while other files contain notes take during visiting lecturers, student seminars and professional conferences.

External committees and advisory boards

Records including correspondence, reports, memoranda, survey results and minutes documenting Hawkin's role in various government committees and voluntary agencies including: Social Planning Council of Metropolitan Toronto (1964-1966); International Institute of Metropolitan Toronto (ca. 1965); Toronto Provisional Immigration Committee (ca. 1967); Advisory Board on Manpower and Immigration Research (1970); Task Force on Services and Programs for Immigrants, Migrants and Refugees, Dept. of Secretary of State (1971-1972); Ugandan-Asian Refugee Movement in Canada (1972).

Most of this series is comprised of the Advisory Board on the Adjustment of Immigrants records (Canada Manpower and Immigration Commission), of which Hawkin's was a member. Included are a full set of minutes from 1969-1977 as well as correspondence, agendas, submissions and reports.

Manuscripts and publications

Professor Goudge's addresses and writings were noted for their lucidity, and he was frequently approached to write book reviews, which often appeared as review articles, and articles for scholarly journals. Some of his writings also appeared as chapters in books, and he wrote two books, The Thought of C. S. Peirce (1950), which was reissued in paperback 1969, and The Ascent of Life: a philosophical study of the theory of evolution (1961) which won him the 1961 Governor-General's Literary Award for non-fiction. In 1966, it appeared in Dutch as De wijsgerige aspecten van de evolutie.

The files in this series contain notes and covering correspondence relating to and drafts of articles and chapters of his books. Drafts of his books, except for a proof copy of The Thought of C. S. Peirce, are not to be found here, though there is correspondence relating to their publications, reviews, and files on royalties paid.

Publications and writings

This series partially documents Allan Irving’s writing and publishing activities generally relating to social work in Canada from 1978 to 1999. This includes articles, chapter of books, books and/or book reviews published. It also partially documents his work being cited in others’ publications.

The series consists of 28 files including draft (some handwritten) of published and unpublished papers, correspondence and press clippings. It also includes a sound recording of Irving lecturing the paper he prepared for a job interview at the FSW (B2000-0022/004S).
