Membership and Board of Directors' meetings

Sub-series consists of notification of meetings, agendas, minutes, reports from committees (including budgets and other financial statements), proposals, forms updating the officers and directors, and other materials prepared for meetings of the New Catholic Times membership, including the annual meeting of the Board of Directors.

From 1976 to 1989, members referred to themselves as "the collective" and meetings, held approximately bi-weekly, were called Collective meetings. The annual meeting of the Board of Directors usually occurred in January or February. Records for Collective meetings for the years 1978 and 1979 are absent, as indicated on post-it notes in the records for 1980 and 1977. From 1990 on, members referred themselves as "the membership" and Membership meetings were held twice a year, with the business conducted at the fall meeting. Records for membership meetings after 1999 do not exist, though see sub-series 2 for records pertaining to meetings of the Publishing Group.

Weekly calendars

Sub-series consists of Nouwen’s weekly appointment calendars from 1975 to 1996. Most contain ephemeral material (including personal notes, reminders, invitations and miscellaneous information) which has been removed and placed in separate envelopes.

Articles by Nouwen

  • CA ON00389 F4-9-1
  • Subseries
  • 1960 - 1996, predominant 1974, 1976 - 1996
  • Part of Henri Nouwen fonds

Sub-series consists of published articles written by Nouwen between 1960 and 1996. A majority of the articles are dated between 1975 and 1996 probably because in 1975 Nouwen began transferring the articles for storage at Yale. The articles are in various formats including entire periodicals, offprints, clippings, and photocopies as originally saved by Nouwen. Specific publications include Pastoral Psychology, Sojourners, Harvard Divinity Bulletin, Feu et Lumiere, The New Oxford Review, National Catholic Reporter, Weavings, and Zaken die God raken. Articles from church newsletters and other sources with limited publication are also included. In addition to featuring unique writings, the articles also represent published material that has been excerpted, condensed, adapted and reprinted from Nouwen's books, articles, and conference speeches. This sub-series contains only those articles written by Nouwen which he collected and does not contain all of his published articles as is evident by several incomplete article series.
The files are arranged chronologically. Each file features one unique published article although photocopies of newspapers as well as business cards and letters indicating the source of the articles are also included. Each file/article has been described at the item level.

Africa

The subseries includes menus from countries part of the African continent including Kenya, Morocco and South Africa. Delivery and take away options are a feature of many restaurants. Menus are from various cities include Pretoria, Marrakech and Nairobi. Menus feature Thai, French, Moroccan, Italian, Japanese, and Chinese cuisine.

The Sources of Increased Efficiency: A Study of DuPont Rayon Plants

The Sources of Increased Efficiency: A Study of DuPont Rayon Plants, originally Hollander’s Ph.D. thesis, was a microeconomic study of technological change. In his memoirs “It’s an Ill Wind…”, he remarks that he was advised by his supervisor Fritz Machlup “to undertake one of the forty-odd studies he had listed; and not being interested in any of them, I selected the first: Investment and Innovation. It proved to be an inspired choice.” In 1965, the thesis was published with few revisions by MIT press. Reviews of the
period reveal that Hollander’s propensity for detailed research and analytical thought, which would define many of his later projects, was evident in this, his earliest work.

Included in this series is the final typescript of the final thesis, detailed proposal for research, drafts of chapters, corrections and revisions, notebooks and loose research notes and a bibliographic card index. There is also correspondence relating to the gathering of research, mainly with officials of DuPont.

Ave Maria Press files

Sub-series consists of five files which deal with Nouwen's personal and professional dealings with Ave Maria Press, a publishing company located in Notre Dame, Indiana. Much of the correspondence is between Nouwen or his assistants and Eugene S. Geissler, Book Editor or Frank Cunningham, Editor for Ave Maria Press. Specific Nouwen publications mentioned in the files include In Memoriam, With Open Hands, Out of Solitude, Compassion, Love in a Fearful Land, and audio cassettes A Spirituality of Waiting, Aging and Ministry, Marriage and Ministry and Spirituality and the Family.

General financial files

Sub-series consists of Nouwen's general financial files kept by his staff between 1980 and 1997. Includes material regarding bank accounts, credit cards, expenses, financial statements, frequent flyer programs, income from donations, honorariums, royalties and stipend, income tax, car, health and travel insurance and RRSP/retirement funds. Includes applications, correspondence, forms, informational pamphlets and booklets, invoices, newsletters, receipts, reports, and statements. Photographs accompany some correspondence (none of which are of Nouwen).
The files have been grouped chronologically according to the Nouwen staff member(s) responsible for the creation of the majority of the file. There are four groupings: files 1270-1281 consist of material from 1980 to 1986 created predominantly by Carol Plantinga and Peter Weiskel; files 1282-1303 consist material from 1986 to 1995 predominantly created by Connie Ellis; files 1304-1311 consist of material from 1984 to 1993 predominantly created by Lydia Banducci; and files 1312-1404 consist of material from 1985 to 1997 predominantly created by Margaret Sutton. Within each chronological grouping the material is arranged alphabetically by file title. There is also one file containing financial invoices, receipts, and financial statements from the period of 1956 - 1967.

General

Records include correspondence, grant records, notebooks, articles by Brieger and others, and other research materials. The last file in the series consists of samples of the cards that were created for the project, which include photographs of illustrations. These cards have been retained only as a sample, in order to demonstrate the project’s methodology. The remainder of the cards are still with Dr. Paul. One oversized folder contains a large chart, that indexes features of each Bible edition.

Subject files

This subseries consists of files relating to activities of particular interest to Prof. McNaught during his tenure as professor in the Department of History (1965-1984), and his continuing interest in the faculty’s professional association after his retirement. Included among this small group are files relating to the Faculty Committee on Vietnam (1967-1969), University League for Social Reform (1964-1966), applications for an unfilled one year appointment in American History (1969-1972), and two files on the University of Toronto Faculty Association (1995-1997).

Law School: Student, Professor, and Dean

The four boxes in this sub-series contain documents relating to my experience as a student, my four years at Osgoode Hall Law School, and my time as a law teacher and dean at the University of Toronto Law School.

There are very few documents relating to my student days at law school (files 2 and 3), apart from my moot factum (file 2) and notes and a small paper prepared for Abe Weston’s jurisprudence course and a set of notes taken in Bob McKay’s criminal law course (files 4 and 5). I have included several marked-up texts used as a student, including my international law casebook, the subject that was to be the subject of my graduate studies (file 7). (For a description of why I chose criminal law for my graduate work, see my speech to the Cambridge Boat-Race dinner in box 04, file 42). As I apparently tossed out most of my notes when we went to England in 1960, there is also very little from my articling year and the bar admission course. What has survived is one incorporation I did and a number of cases I argued for the firm of Kimber and Dubin and some legal aid criminal cases that I took on my own (files 8-10). Some of these cases were sensational enough to be covered in the yellow journals of the day, in Hush, Justice Weekly, and Tab.

Similarly, there are very few documents relating to my four years teaching at Osgoode Hall Law School from 1961-1965 (file 11). Research notes and documents relating to the Osgoode years can, however, be found in a number of other boxes, such as those relating to Detention before Trial, Securities Regulation, and Double Jeopardy.

I was appointed to the University of Toronto Faculty of Law commencing on July 1, 1965 (file 12). From that period on there is more material. The files, for example, contain some material on the Law School’s Research Committee and its Long Range Planning Committee, as well as various other memos (files 13-15).

In 1972 I was appointed as the dean and returned from my year as a Law Reform of Canada Commissioner in Ottawa (files 16-20). The files contain a fair amount of correspondence while still in Ottawa relating to the deanship (file 21). There are also various law school plans and speeches made while dean (file 22).

The many files connected with my seven years as dean between 1972 and 1979 will be found in the normal law school files. I did not go through the files to keep any law school records when my term of office was over. There is, however, a fairly lengthy interview done for the student Advocate (file 23). There are also a number of files dealing with student mooting while I was dean which were not part of the law school records but were given to me by some students a number of years later (possibly in the early 1980s) because they didn’t know what to do with them (files 41-44).

In 1975 I started making brief notes of my plans for the coming year (file 24) and kept this up until the present. I usually did these around Labour Day. From about 1980 on I also prepared, as we were required to do, annual reports to the dean on my moonlighting and other activities for the past year (file 27).

Correspondence from 1980 on not found in other boxes is contained in files 28-36. The files also contain material on other aspects of law school life, such as my chairmanship of the Directed Research Committee (files 37 and 38), my involvement as faculty advisor to the Faculty of Law Review (file 40), my membership in the graduate committee (file 48), and my involvement in seeking special salary increases for the faculty (file 39). None of these files is very complete, however. There are also files on my involvement in the law school annual squash tournament, various alumni events, and various talks I gave at the law school (files 45,47, and 51). Other files deal with various sabbatical plans, various media appearances, and ways in which I coped with the changing technology, including the use of the computer (files 46, 49, and 53). A number of law school pictures are contained in file 50.

Double Jeopardy

During articling in 1959-60, I applied to do graduate work in England and the United States. Although accepted (with funding) at Harvard and Yale (file 4), I accepted the Carswell/ Sweet and Maxwell Scholarship for study at Cambridge University that was being offered for the first time that year (file 2). I also obtained a substantial scholarship that was offered by Osgoode Hall Law School if I promised to teach there for one year after I returned (file 3). My wife and I were therefore comparatively wealthy--she worked at a mental hospital just outside Cambridge-- and we bought a red Sunbeam Alpine that we brought back to Canada with us (file 39).

I was to spend one year getting a Diploma in Comparative Legal Studies. My topic was double jeopardy, although I had at first naively thought that I would cover in that one year several ‘bars to prosecution’. Glanville Williams was my supervisor. The circumstances of choosing my college and my supervisor are set out in an after-dinner talk that I gave several years ago at the annual Cambridge dinner (file 40).

We returned to Canada in the summer of 1961 and I started teaching at Osgoode Hall Law School. I taught there during 1961-62 and then applied for a leave of absence to be able to return to Cambridge to convert my work into a doctorate (files 8 and 9). This time, funding came from the Canada Council (file 5), with some travel funds from the Law Society. I had applied for a Viscount Bennett Scholarship from the Canadian Bar Association, which, as in 1959-60, I did not get. The file includes all the letters of reference relating to the 1959-60 application which the CBA mistakenly returned to me (file 6)!

There is extensive correspondence throughout the 1960s with my supervisor, Glanville Williams, and with Cambridge University (files 8-10). I required dispensation with respect to shortening the number of terms that I had to spend in Cambridge and various extensions that I required. During this same period, I was researching and writing Detention Before Trial (published in 1965) and was involved in the Legal Aid study and the Kimber Committee on Securities Regulation, all of which made it difficult to complete my thesis.

I had thrown out all my research notes many years ago. They were kept in spiral binders and I recall having well over 50 of them. The only hand-written documents that survived are various versions of the preface (files 18 and 20). Four of the chapters of the manuscript were published as articles before the book was published and in some cases before the thesis was completed (files 16 and 17). The thesis was approved in early 1966. I did not have to go back to England to defend it. Sir Rupert Cross was the external examiner. Gooderson and Odgers were the internal examiners (file 19).

The thesis (Box 2) was published by Oxford University Press, having first been turned down by Sweet and Maxwell, whose scholarship had started my association with Cambridge (file 21). There are the usual files connected with publication (files 22-27).

The book came out at the beginning of 1969. It was widely reviewed in legal journals (file 29) and has been frequently cited by various courts (files 33-36). There are files on the citation of the book by the Supreme Court of Canada, the Supreme Court of the United States, and the House of Lords. I have also included a sampling of citation by other courts.

Reviews and reports

Files contain correspondence, referee reports, comments and criticisms, recommendations regarding publication and drafts of articles by 3rd parties with Hollanders notations. Hollander worked on various editorial boards including the History of Political Economy or HOPE (Duke University), Canadian Journal of Economics, Utilitas (University College, London), Journal of the History Economic Thought, American Economic Review, Research in Political Economy, The Oxford Economic Papers, the Journal of Historical Ideas, the Journal of Political Economy, Routledge Publishing and Research in the History of Economic Thought and Methodology. There is also one file in B1998-0027 relating to his comments as a reader or reviewer for publishers.

Course descriptions

This subseries consists of records relating to course descriptions of courses that Prof MacDowell taught at U of T, York, and McMaster. These records consist of syllabi, course descriptions, and reading lists.
