Head of House and Regional Meetings

Series consists of 68 audio cassettes made during the course of Head of House meetings or Regional meetings of L'Arche International. The Head of House provides support for the Community Leader by taking direct responsibility for the home. The Leader administrates the overall community, but the Heads of Houses take on the responsibilities of the home for the Leader. The Community Leader regularly meets with Heads of Houses to hear details, issues, listen to questions, to make community announcements, and create a supportive community around any situations that may need support.

Audio-visual materials

Series consists of photographs of members and staff of the New Catholic Times, including negatives and contact prints, and a sound recording of a talk given by Monika Hellwig, LL.B., Ph.D., on Catholic Education. Photographs depict members, staff, and guests of the New Catholic Times working or posing at their desk, in meetings, or attending events including conferences or presentations, a picnic, a party, and a peace demonstration. A list of items is available.

Research

This series begins with grant applications submitted by Professor Guillet between 1976 and 1996, followed by correspondence and reports on the research projects they funded. Next are notes on research projects at the University of Toronto (1969-1990), notebooks and, especially, his ‘Ideas’ files with voluminous notes taken between 1965 and about 1995. After these there come files on research projects, arranged alphabetically by the name of the project. The series ends with files on projects carried out by Professor Guillet’s students, arranged alphabetically by the name of the student.

The first grant application in the series is for a new drug delivery method for the controlled release of insulin Professor Guillet developed for the Canadian Diabetic Association in 1976-1977. The remainder is primarily to NSERC for research on various characteristics of and applications of polymers, including (after his appointment as Professor Emeritus) the relationship to solar energy, ultraviolet light and the remediation of chemical pollutants in ground water.

Professor Guillet’s notes, notebooks and ‘Ideas’ files cover a wide range of research issues and ideas gleaned from his own research, from notes taken at conferences and in discussions with his colleagues, students, and other scientists. Some of Professor Guillet’s ideas are further explored in the research projects described in this series and in Series 7 to 10.

Professor Guillet kept files on a number of research projects that contained notes and a variety of reports. One of the earliest of these at the University of Toronto was ebuillometry; Guillet’s research extended from the late 1960s to the mid-1990s. Other projects documented here include gamma-ray radiation, glassy polymers, inverse gas chromatography, photochemistry of fibre-forming polymers, photo-oxidation of polymers and silicone polishes, polymer flocculants, and solar energy.

The remaining files in this series consist of research reports, with covering correspondence, carried out by students and post-doctoral fellows, research associates and visiting professors. Included are research notes and notebooks of two individuals mentioned in the previous series: Valery Kuleznev and Guojun Liu.

Addresses

The files in this series consist of Professor Guillet’s surviving addresses (note the gaps) of a professional nature and nearly all relating to polymers. There are several files of notes and abstracts for these addresses, dated and undated, followed by addresses arranged chronologically. Few are accompanied by covering letters; for these and related correspondence, the researcher is directed primarily to Series 1. Some addresses can also be found in the conference files in Series 8. There are also a few lectures on cassette tapes. These date from about 1979 to 1996 and include Guillet’s Canadian Institute lecture in 1990 as well as lectures given at international conferences in Anaheim California, Dallas Texas, Prague, Stockholm, Seoul and Tokyo.

Professor Guillet was in great demand as a public speaker and thus had to turn down many invitations. But he still found time from his busy schedule to speak to groups other than professional ones, including students and community organizations. Such addresses are not represented in this series, but information about them can be gleaned from the correspondence in Series 1.

Alison Prentice fonds

  • UTA 1674
  • Fonds
  • 1951-2015

This fonds consists of 3 accessions which together give a fairly complete documentation of Prof. Prentice’s career as a scholar, mentor and teacher. Extensive correspondence, memos, e-mails, research notes and manuscripts found in various series document her scholarly contributions. Correspondence with students, letters of recommendation and her leadership on associations and projects document her wide influence among historians. Since she was a pioneer in the teaching of women’s history, her teaching files found in Series 9 are important resources in studying women’s history as an emerging discipline in higher education.

Perhaps most importantly however, this fonds documents the network of Canadian academics, most of which were women, in the area of women’s history, the history of education and women’s studies in general. Many of Prof. Prentice projects and publications were collaborative and therefore the fonds documents her relationship with this network of women historians. It is also evident that through these collaborations, Prof. Prentice was not only at the centre of women’s studies within her own generation but also influenced the next generation of scholars who have gone on to make their own contributions in history departments and women’s studies programs throughout Canadian universities.

Prof Prentice is a pioneer in both teaching and researching women’s history. As a result, these records will be of interest to anyone researching the evolution of women’s history as a discipline, the teaching of the history of education and women’s history as well the role of women in higher education.

James Nairn Patterson Hume fonds

  • UTA 1403
  • Fonds
  • 1941-1997

Records in this fonds document to varying degrees the dual aspects of Prof. Hume’s career – as a computer scientist and as a teacher of physics. This fonds does not, in any substantial way, document his many administrative roles within the University of Toronto or within professional associations.

For a good overview of his career, researchers should consult Series 1 Biographical for summary information on his achievements and career highlights. Series 3 Professional Correspondence also gives a good overview of what Prof. Hume was working on at a given period of time because it is varied in content and is arranged chronologically. Additional correspondence documenting these activities specifically can be found in Series 4 Publishing, Series 6 Professional Activities and Series 7 Broadcasting and Film. His research in computer science and the many ways he disseminated that knowledge through articles, talks, published works and teaching is documented in Series 4 Publishing, Series 5 Talks and Addresses and Series 6 Teaching. Researchers should note however that manuscripts do not exist for any of the computer science textbooks for which he was so well known nor are there extensive notes, memos or correspondence that discuss writing projects except some correspondence with publishers. There is, however, a good representation of his talks and lectures as well a manuscript and typescript of his textbook Physics in Two Volumes, co-authored with Donald Ivey.

His work in educational television and film is very well documented and is contained in Series 7 Broadcasting and Film. Records in this series will be of interest to researchers studying early Canadian broadcasting, educational television, and the teaching of science – in particular physics for general consumption. Several reports found in this series discuss the themes and goals of many of the programmes.

Finally, a lighter side of Prof. Hume can be found in Series 8 Arts and Letters Club, as it relates to his involvement in the Spring Review. Records in this series would be of interest to anyone researching amateur musical theatre and arts clubs generally.

Family and personal

This series contains material relating to the le Riche family generally, to specific members of it – Harding le Riche’s, mother, siblings, wife, children, and grandchildren, personal information about le Riche himself, and his scrapbooks. The files on Professor le Riche contain biographical information, curriculum vitae, and press coverage of his activities, along with files on honours bestowed, memorabilia, a riding accident, and his trip to South Africa in 1964. B2006-0004/004 contains several certificates of awards both loose and in a large album. This series also includes family documents from 1888-1930s. (B2006-0004/001)

The largest single component of this series is the scrapbooks. They contain press clipping of items of family, academic, and political interest, programmes for and invitations to social and professional events, some photographs, the occasional letter, a large number of first day covers, and memorabilia relating to Professor le Riche’s travels and other activities. The first scrapbook (1945-1946) is filed in B2003-0012/001; the later scrapbooks (1964-1966, 1967-1973, 1973-1978, and 1978-1986) are filed in B2003-0012/002 to /005. Scrapbook for 1966-1968 is filed in B2006-0004/004. Loose items associated with scrapbooks dating from 1967 to 1986 are filed in folders in B2003-0012/ 001, /004 and /005, as appropriate.

The series concludes with an album of 9 records, titled “Beyond Antiquity: A series of lectures on the origins of man by Professor Raymond Dart, Professor Emeritus, University of the Witswatersrand, Johnannesburg, South Africa”, with an accompanying printed outline of the lectures. The series was produced by the South African Broadcasting Corporation in 1966, and le Riche was a contributor to it. Raymond Dart had been a professor of anatomy at Wits when le Riche was a student there, and was just beginning his career as an anthropologist. Le Riche was already interested in the subject and some of his friends visited the Sterkfontein caves in August 1936 with Robert Broom, the country’s leading paleontologist, who, a few days later, discovered the first Australopithecus at the site. Dart became famous for his description of the Taung skull, Australopithecus africannus.

Sound recordings

This series includes 2 interviews with le Riche. One relates to South Africa and discusses his childhood, his early education, his family life as well as his opinions on various aspects of South African history, events and people. A second is an interview with Betty Kennedy done in 1967 discussing the problem of obesity and diet. Finally, the third tape is of a Methodist choir of the Basuto people taped by le Riche during a visit to his homeland. The choir is introduced by le Riche at the beginning of the tape.
