Massey Family fonds

  • UTA 1528
  • Fonds
  • ca. 1880-1969; predominant 1920-1959

The Massey Family records consist primarily of official and personal documents created by Vincent Massey. They reflect his distinguished diplomatic career, including his terms as Canadian ambassador to the United States during the 1920s and as High Commissioner to London during the 1930s and 1940s, along with his lengthy affiliation with the Liberal Party of Canada. Also represented are his years as Governor-General of Canada and as the leader of the Royal Commission on National Development in the Arts, Sciences and Letters. The moral and financial support given by Vincent and Alice Massey to cultural development in Canada, both individually and through the Massey Foundation, is evident in a wealth of documents relating to the fields of education, music, drama and fine arts (including such institutions and organizations as the National Council of Education, Hart House Quartet, Hart House Theatre, the Dominion Drama Festival, and the National Art Gallery). Their support of the University of Toronto is also well documented. In addition to the records of Vincent Massey, some papers of Alice Massey and correspondence of many members of the Grant, Massey and Parkin families are present.

The bulk of the records are found in B1987-0082. There are two other related accessions:

  • B1998-0008: Correspondence between Vincent Massey and Sir Henry Newbolt, including a copy of memo on the Constitutional Crisis in 1926.
  • B1998-0032: Files of the Board of Syndics (G.F. McFarland, Honorary Treasurer) relating to Hart House Theatre (1929-1945), and Hart House String Quartet (1931-1942); one file on Hart House 50th anniversary (1968-1969).

Scotiabank Nuit Blanche : Songs of the Night

Produced by SNATS UofTFeaturing students from Voice Studies and Collaborative Piano Studies"Experience an enriched contemporary interaction of poetic and musical language in the classical art song genre featuring songs of the night. Frugal and fortress-like, the lobby of the Faculty of Music is the antithesis of the modern recital hall. Grand pianos centred in the vast space coupled with free-flowing musicians create intimate moments and live portraits of the song recital. Roving audience members have an opportunity to experience the performance through a contemporary perspective thus creating a sense of community engagement that is not offered during a traditional 19th Century song recital."

THE HERMAN GEIGER-TOREL LECTURE : "Applause, Applause - An Hommage to the symbiotic Artist-Audience-Relationship."

Johannes Debus, lecturer.Herman Berthold Gustav Geiger-Torel was born in Frankfort-am-Main on July 17, 1907. At the age of 23 he found himself in charge of the stagings at the Salzburg Festival. He joined the opera company in Troppau Czechoslovakia where Torel befriended Nicholas Goldschmidt, the associate conductor and chorus master. Because Torel was a Jew, future work in Germany was cancelled and he spent the war years in South America. It was after his first visit to Toronto in 1948 that Torel realized the possibility of building a major national opera company in Canada. Nicholas Goldschmidt became the first music director and Herman Geiger-Torel the first stage director. Together they organized the conception of what we know as the Canadian Opera Company. Because of his vision and his vast knowledge of all aspects of the opera business, Torel led the company for over 25 years through thick and thin, never compromising his artistic vision. - John Leberg In the fall of 2007, the Friends of Herman Geiger-Torel and the University of Toronto presented a concert to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Mr. Geiger-Torel and raise funds to establish the Geiger-Torel Lectures at the Faculty of Music. To contribute to this fund and support this ongoing series of lectures please contact Bruce Blandford, Director of Advancement at 416-946-3145 or bruce.blandford@utoronto.ca.
