Gordon Sparling fonds

  • CA ON00349 1993.001
  • Fonds
  • 1919 - 1992

Fonds illustrates several facets of Gordon Sparling’s long and productive life. The bulk of the material was collected and organized by Sparling as he sought to research and document the development of the Canadian film industry (ca. 1915 – 1992). This material includes press clippings, book excerpts, photographs, negatives, audio reels, cinefilm reels, interview notes and correspondence with prominent figures such as F.R. ‘Budge’ Crawley, Roy Tash, Gratien Gelinas and Dick Bird. Sparling’s professional activities with the Ontario Motion Picture Bureau, Canadian Government Motion Picture Bureau, Paramount Studios, Associated Screen News and National Film Board are well represented here through press clippings, promotional materials, notes, scripts, and other production documents [ca 1924 – 1966]. His service with the Canadian Army Film and Photo Unit is reflected through correspondence, photographs, negatives, newsletters and press clippings (ca. 1943 – 1989), as is his involvement with such organizations as the Canadian Film Institute, Cinematheque Canadienne, Cinematheque Quebecoise, Society of Filmmakers and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences (ca 1950 – 1992).
Sparling’s family life is documented through correspondence, photographs, negatives, and audio reels (ca. 1950 – 1992), and his student activities at Trinity College (1919 – 1923) are illustrated through notes, correspondence, photographs, press clippings and prompt books.
The materials were originally arranged in files by Sparling, and this order has been largely maintained.

The first series, Textual Material, includes personal papers, scripts, correspondence, administrative papers, transcripts, budget breakdowns and research material for Maclear’s productions.

The second series, Photographic Material, consists of prints, slides and negatives. Many of these were created during Maclear’s time as a foreign correspondent, and the rest were produced during the creation of Maclear’s television programs. Many of the photographs were obtained from archives around the world, and are consequently of considerable historical interest.
The third series, Video Materials, consists of nearly 4000 videotapes (finished productions, field tapes, archival and stock footage) representing the many series, mini-series and individual programs with which Maclear has been involved. Approximately half of these pertain to the program Flightpath.
