Photographs and Microforms

The series F. Photographs and Microforms covers the years 1965 to 1995 and 1999 to 2005. The collection, which mostly depicts the university and campus events and individuals, is a compilation of photographic materials that were taken by staff and students at UTSC for a variety of purposes. There are two subseries in series F

External Sources of Information

The series E. External Sources of Information covers the years 1956 and 1960 to 2007. The series contains items that are relevant to UTSC’s history and operations but were not created at the university or by university bodies. The materials have been placed in subseries based on their institution of origin or a perceived similarity in use. There are nine subseries in series E.


Series D, Services, covers the years 1949 and 1952 through 2009. The university provides many services for faculty, staff, and students. The series is has been arranged base on the department providing services (i.e. the library); some smaller service providers are grouped together based on a common target audience (i.e. faculty and staff organizations). The series is divided into ten subseries.

Academic Departments

Series C, Academic Departments, covers the years 1964 through 1991 and 2005. The academic departments at UTSC have changed drastically over the course of the university’s history. This series utilizes the current (as of 2013) academic structure, with the addition of three early programs (General Program, Extension, and Physical Education), to provide a framework based on academic subjects for arranging departmental material. Divisions and departments that are now defunct or which have been amalgamated into conglomerate departments are represented under the new department heading; however, a comprehensive list of all programs, current or defunct, for which material exists in the collection has been provided in the file list to aid in discovery. This list has been replicated in the scope and content note for each subseries below. The series includes course descriptions, course evaluations, course guides, handbooks, reports, and other materials. The series is divided into eighteen subseries based on the current academic structure of the university.

Photographic Prints

Series C: Photographic Prints contains all of photograph prints that were housed in paper folders and filing cabinets in the office of Ken Jones. The folders were arranged by subject. For the most part, folders are labelled by subject but the folders and some photographs were out of order when the records were transferred to UTSC Library. In some cases, folders contain photos that do not reflect the subject of the original folder label.

Negative and Contact sheets

Series B: Negatives and Contact Sheets contains all of the negatives and contact sheets that were housed in binders in the office of Ken Jones. The binders were arranged by year and usually labelled with the year and the sequential number of each negative sheet and corresponding contact sheet, i.e. Binder 1968 (now file 2012-001B-2:2) contains negatives 181-225.

Legacy databases called “David’s database” and “Photomatica” document the subjects associated with each contact sheet. Contact the archivist to access an emulation of these databases and search through them. All subject keywords recorded on the photographs are also transcribed in each file’s “Media/Content Notes” field.

Covers of the original binders have been photocopied and stored in a file with the corresponding photographs.

Executive and Administrative Bodies

The series B. Executive and Administrative Bodies covers the years 1963 to 2006. The executive and administrative bodies of the university are responsible for governing, decision- making, and action implementation for a wide variety of university activities and endeavors, incorporating both academic and administrative functions. The series is divided into thirteen subseries based on the executive and administrative structure of the university:
Vice-Principal, Research

Office of Advancement / Development Office

In 1963, the Governing Council drafted A Provisional Plan for Two Off-Campus Colleges in the University of Toronto, which established Scarborough College (later UTSC) and also Erindale College (later the University of Toronto Mississauga, or UTM). The series includes correspondence and address lists for various council members, by-laws for the council, and council minutes from 1973 to 2002. Also included are documents relating to the opening of the College in 1964 for extension courses and the formal opening in 1966.
