L.E. Jones fonds

  • UTA 1432
  • Fonds
  • [189-]-1998

This accession contains both personal and professional records created and collected by Dr. L.E. Jones, professor of engineering. Although a small percentage of this fonds documents his personal life, the vast majority of material was created after his retirement in 1972, which he created in his capacity as Faculty Archivist and Professor Emeritus. The paucity of information from the earlier years can be attributed to the loss of many of his records during the Sir Sandford Fleming building fire in 1977.

The records have been arranged into series to reflect either the type of record or the activity involved. Records documenting Jones’ personal life are filed first, followed by papers documenting both the personal, professional and academic projects and activities that he worked on during his life. There are also special series dedicated to the archival information and records that he collected as Engineering Archivist. Photographs have been placed at the end in Series XI.

Some of the records that are included in this fonds include Professor Jones personal documents such as: his student workbooks and thesis, his letters to the editor, correspondence, and activities with his church and the Hart House Glee Club. Most of the records pertain to his professional activities and consist of documents such as: correspondence, publications, lectures and student marks. There are also a significant number of files that document his involvement in Faculty activities such as the Iron Ring Ceremony, the Hall of Distinction and the Centennial and Sesquicentennial celebrations. The work that he undertook for the Faculty providing calligraphy for the inscriptions on the awards and medals that were granted by the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering are also documented in many of the files. Finally, two series are dedicated to the articles that he collected documenting the history of the Faculty as well as the archival items that he acquired as Engineering Archivist.

Despite the fact that most of the records in this fonds document Professor Jones’ personal and professional activities after his retirement, they provide an interesting glimpse into his life while assuming the role of Engineering Archivist and Professor Emeritus. As the Engineering Archivist, Jones collected a variety of rich and interesting documents pertaining to some of the early pioneers within the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering. In addition to collecting material, Jones also documented the Faculty by photographing notable individuals and events. This fonds would therefore be useful to those individuals interested in examining the life of Professor Jones, as well as researchers who wish to delve into the history of the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering.

Sound and moving images

This series consists of video and audio recordings featuring Professor Moldofsky and his research. Included are formal talks, workshops and conferences relating to fibromyalgia, sleep disorders and related research. There are also many popular media appearances by Moldofsky on television and on radio where he is interviewed about his research on sleep and particularly his sleep research lab and the experiment he conducted upon the MIR space station.

Research and Writings

This series documents Dr. Moldofsky’s research activities and writings, except for the Microgravity, Sleep and Immune Functions in Humans (SWIF) project which is documented in Series 3. Includes draft research papers, lecture slides, conference presentations, and reports. Topics covered include sleep disorders, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue. Also included are digital files (originally on a CD) related to his more recent research on Disordered Sleep Physiology, Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain, Fatigue and Psychological Disturbances in Canadian Military Personnel with and without PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress disorder).

Finally, the series includes the first working model of a sleep apnea machine (ca. 1983), which was put together by Moldofsky and staff in his Sleep Lab, based on the ideas and research of Dr. Colin Sullivan of Australia, who had previously been Dr. Moldofsky’s student as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Medicine at the University of Toronto.

Microgravity, Sleep and Immune Functions in Humans (SWIF)

This series documents Dr. Moldofsky’s research activities, in particular, his two major research projects on Microgravity, Sleep and Immune Functions in Humans (SWIF) with the Canadian Space Agency and NASA, funded through the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The first project (1995-1999) studied the influence of gravity change on sleep and the immune system in astronauts. The aim of this research was to further advance the studies of disordered sleep and altered immune functions observed in distressing circumstances, and in patients with psychiatric (major depression) and medical conditions (i.e. fibromyalgia, post febrile chronic fatigue syndrome). This experiment was conducted during the Mir 23/NASA 4 and Mir 24 missions in 1997-1998.

The second project of the same title (2000-2003) involved experiments carried out in space but then subsequently lost during the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster. This second phase aimed to understand bone loss in astronauts in space as well as osteoporosis on Earth, believing that chemical changes in the human immune system – possibly triggered by sleep deprivation – could instead be a major cause of bone loss in space and on the ground (as opposed to just microgravity).

Included in this series: grant applications; correspondence; files related to visits to the Russian Space Agency in Star City and the Johnson Space Center in Houston (including photographs); baseline data collection (BDC) data sets; and final reports. Also included are EEG electrode caps used by American and Russian astronauts aboard the MIR space station.

Personal and Biographical

Series consists of files documenting the life of Harvey Moldofsky, including his curriculum vitae, some personal and professional correspondence, certificates and awards, various press clippings about him, photographs, and artifacts. Photographs include a young Moldofsky in Medical School with classmates in the anatomy lab; son David and wife Zelda; group photographs from conferences attended; and of staff and the laboratory at the Centre for Sleep Chronobiology.

Harvey Moldofsky fonds

  • UTA 1588
  • Fonds
  • 1952-2016

Personal records of Harvey Moldofsky, Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychiatry, former Director of the Centre for Sleep and Chronobiology at Toronto Western Hospital, and a world renowned specialist in sleep disorders. The records consist of correspondence, notes, raw data, addresses, publications, photographs, slides, posters, floppy disks, CDs, videos and artifacts documenting his research and other activities. Most of the files relate to his research work on sleep problems over many years, in particular those associated with the astronauts and cosmonauts on the NASA shuttle/Mir space station in the 1990’s, as part of the Microgravity, Sleep and Immune Functions in Humans (SWIF) project. Also included is the first working model of a sleep apnea machine (ca. 1983).
