Biographical file

This series is one file containing a copy of his birth certificate, a C.V., a Fellowship Leave Application, a publication list, and a biography written around 1976. Documents give a good overview of his career and achievements.

Slides

This series includes slides most likely used to illustrate lectures, publications and possibly CBC programs in which he was involved. Most slides are undated but or identified as to their site location. There is also one box of slides of architectural student projects.

Negatives

These are mainly 35 mm strip negatives mostly likely relating to the photos in series above although a relationship is not easily established. There are two sets:

B2001-0044/003P
515 negatives: colour
Most are European photographs but the number system does not match those found in Series 8 (Europe 1964 photos). Most were probably taken for vault research and have been cut and resorted according to location and architectural characteristics. There are also photographs of proposed plans for Toronto City Hall and other buildings in the Toronto area.

B2001-0044/010P
Approx. 1500-2000 negatives: b&w
These are rolls of black and white negatives. Approximately half are photos and drawn figures for the Gothic Vault. Others are images of various buildings and architectural drawings and models. Unlike most of the images in other series, these are completely unidentified and may have served as a preservation set.

Essays, talks and scripts

This series contains draft manuscripts, outlines and related correspondence of talks given by Acland such as “The Medieval House” (1974), and Architecture and “The Arrogant Towers” (1967). Also there are scripts and related correspondence for CBC programs in which Acland was involved including Explorations, Man in a Landscape and A Sense of Place. Some files include slide lists and original drawings.

Publications

This series documents two books and one article. The first publication is Building by the Sea, limited edition photographic study of Maritimes architecture with foreword by E.R. Arthur and plates by J.H. Acland published by University of Toronto Press 1962. One large file contains the outline, notes and a photocopy of an early draft. Soon after the two authors published “The Maritimes” in the Journal of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, July 1963. A copy is found in this series. Photographs relating to these two publications can be found in Series 7.

The third publication is Medieval Structure: the Gothic Vault (1972). This work was a culmination of all his research on middle ages architecture. Included is the original publication agreement, some original drawings, and long narrow tabs with rough sketches of the illustration that were being considered for the book. These were most likely used to organize and select the illustrations. A copy of the book has been kept with the papers. For photographs related to this publication see Series 8, 9 and 12.

Box /001 (19) – (22) and /005 for illustrated markers.

Conservation work

To a limited degree, the two files making up this series document Acland’s involvement in the Canadian Inventory of Historic Buildings. Included are some inventory forms completed by students in the 1970s, and an article about the project written by Acland and published in Ontario History, Sept. 1971. Photographs most directly related to his conservation work in the Toronto area are found in Series 10.

Course materials and notebooks

This series contains one file of course materials such as outlines, reading lists, lecture schedules for courses Acland taught at various institutions. Courses for the University of Toronto School of Architecture include 2.23 The European Tradition of Framed Building, 2.24 Mediterranean Tradition, 2.26 The House, 2.27 Residential Patterns 222 and 322 History of Architecture.

Acland’s notebooks, which he most certainly used for lectures, document the subject matter of the courses and the way in which Acland organized his lectures. There are eight in total, illustrated with his original sketches.

Resource cards

This is a series of index cards that are colour coded and grouped by country. Most cards contain architectural drawings copied from books but some are hand drawn by Acland. There are also postcards showing buildings and some notes. These were most likely used to organize his research and supplement his lecture notes found in the notebooks.

Maritime photographs

These photographs of maritime architecture in Canada, include external and internal views of government buildings, historical sites, streetscapes, industrial buildings, churches and old homes. These were most likely taken around 1962 and were used for several publications including Building by the Sea and The Maritimes. Cities most widely represented in this series include Quebec City, St John N.B, St. Andrews N.B., Dorchester N.B., Fredericton N.B., Charlottetown P.E.I, Halifax N.S., Lunenburg N.S., St. Johns Nfld., Petty Harbour Nfld..

This series consists of b&w proofs and larger b&w and colour prints. Proofs are arranged by their original number order and are identified by town and building. Larger prints have been grouped by their geographic location of province and town.

Photographs of European trip

These photographs were taken by Acland during a trip to Europe in 1964 and document the architecture and landscape of various cities. These images would have been used for research and to illustrate several published works including a series of articles entitled “Building and Land:…” in Canadian Architect starting in 1968. Interior photographs of cathedrals and churches would have also formed the basis for his research on vaults, some of which were reproduced in his 1972 book Medieval Structure : The Gothic Vault.

Countries documented in this series include: Central European countries such as Czechoslovakia, Poland, Hungary; England; France; Greece; the Islamic Middle East such as Turkey, Iran and Egypt; Italy, Portugal, Spain and Yugoslavia. There are also photographs of Nigeria taken by a photographer Grant Wanzel. These are included here because they were originally filed with the European photographs.

Vault photographs

These images are those selected mainly for printing in Acland’s book, Medieval Structure : the Gothic Vault. University of Toronto Press, 1972. Some may not have actually made it into the final printing. They show architectural features of various structures throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Originally these were probably taken around the same time as European photographs described in Series 8 – possibly during the same trip since many of the places are common to both series of prints.

This series contains the following arrangement:

/004P 247 photoprints: b&w ; 8x10 or smaller
4 photoprints: colour ; 8x10 or smaller
Mainly 8x10s these prints were identified as “European Arches”. Most are identified by location and have therefore been sorted alphabetically by place name. Except for a small number, Acland was the photographer. Some are numbered and mostly likely correspond to their use in the book but the correlation is unclear since the illustrations in the book are not numbered.

/004P 31 photoprints: b&w ; 8x10
These prints were originally arranged by chapter and this arrangement has been kept. Notations made by Acland on the back often note the page number.

/005P- 197 negatives: b&w ; 8x10

/007P These are enlarged negatives likely used for printing. Each is individually foldered since adhesive from the tape used to border their edges has made them tacky. Originally, all would have been sorted by chapter but this arrangement was lost. Whatever arrangement existed was maintained and where possible folders are annotated with the page number. The original folder has also been kept since it lists all images found in that chapter. Negatives not matched to their chapters are filed in Box /007. It is possible that some of these may not have been used in the book.

/001P 57 negatives : b&w ; 4x3.5 or smaller
29 negatives : colour ; 21/4’ x 21/4”
These are mostly original negatives of vaults many of which Acland identified. Some appear to copy negatives. There is no particular arrangement although original groupings were maintained.

Course unions

Series consists primarily of files compiled by individual course unions containing records of their events and activities. It also includes documentation of issues that arose within course unions and with ASSU, including about executive elections and funding. Records include event posters, newsletters, correspondence, meeting minutes and reports.

Course evaluations

Series consists primarily of course evaluations published by individual course unions, as well as records pertaining to their production. Also included are earlier renditions of course evaluations produced by the Students’ Administrative Council (SAC) and ASSU. Records include published course evaluation booklets, questionnaires, meeting minutes, numerical tabulations, and production and budgetary documents.

Advocacy and initiatives

Series consists of records documenting various issues or initiatives taken up or spearheaded by the ASSU. Especially prominent are the files pertaining to ASSU’s activity surrounding asbestos found in Sidney Smith Hall in the early 1990s and the multiple fee levy referendums conducted by ASSU since its inception in the 1970s. Also included are early renditions of the organization’s constitution, information pamphlets, and newsletters.

Relations with outside groups

Series consists of material related to ASSU’s relationship with other student groups, including those within the University of Toronto (Students’ Administrative Council, Graduate Students’ Union, Association of Part-Time Undergraduate Students, Campus Coalition, etc.) as well as outside (Ontario Federation of Students/Fédération des étudiants L’Ontario, Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance, and other universities). Records include correspondence and meeting minutes documenting ASSU’s collaboration with other student groups, as well as reports, position statements and other material issued independently by other student groups.

Course notes

These files contain the course and lab notes taken by Elizabeth Allin while she was taking post-doctoral studies at Cambridge University in 1933-1934.

Research files

These files were assembled by Professor Allin for the writing of her book, Physics of the University of Toronto, 1843-1980 (1981).

Photographs and negatives

Series consists mainly copy prints collected of historical photographs of the Physics department. Most were in an album and page numbers are indicated on the folders. Some originals are included.

Administrative and teaching files

This series begins with Professor Allemang's appointment files at the University of Toronto (1959-1960, 1965-2003) and at the University of Washington in Seattle (1964-1965), while she was a doctoral student. There is followed by a file on three theses she supervised and a list of names and addresses she compiled of the members of the Class of 1954 in Nursing at the University of Toronto. The remaining administrative files document a variety of activities in the School (later Faculty) of Nursing. The earliest are Muriel Uprichard's files on the degree course for graduate nurses (1951-1963) and staff seminars from 1952-1953. These are followed by a series of reports, including Irene Saarik's report on the School library (1956), the first Nettie Douglas Fidler Lecture (1963), the report of the Sunnybrook-University of Toronto Nursing Project (1981), and an address by Gail Donner to the Faculty of Nursing Alumni Association (1981).

The last part of the series consists of the surviving files of lecture notes prepared by Professor Allemang. They encompass three courses: 'History and philosophy of nursing', Nursing 401, 'History if ideas about nursing', and Nursing 1005, 'Trends in nursing (education and practice): late nineteenth century to mid-twentieth century'. Included withthis course is notes on a lecture delivered by Jill Conway on 7 February 1974 on the historical development of women's professions. The series ends with a lecture by Professor Allemang presented to Degree IV students in 1981.

The files contain, in addition to lecture notes, some memos, outlines and reading lists.

Professional organizations and conferences

This series documents the myriad of activities Professor Allemang was involved in during her long career of promoting nursing history and encouraging academics and researchers. The principal organizations represented here are the American Association for the History of Nursing (AAHN), the Canadian Association for the History of Nursing/Association Canadienne pour l'Histoire du Nursing (CAHN/ACHN), the Canadian Nurses Association, on the advisory board of which she sat from 1985-1992; and the Margaret Allemang Centre for the History of Nursing, which she co-founded. The AAHN sponsored an annual conference on the history of nursing, many of which Professor Allemang attended. She co-founded the CAHN with Barbara Keddie from Dalhousie University and organized its first two conferences. It also co-sponsored a periodic International History of Nursing Conference, for which there are files in this series, and organized a series of Hannah lectures funded by the Hannah Institute for the History of Medicine. The Canadian Nurses Association had a number of interest groups under its umbrella, including the Canadian Nursing Research Group, and Professor Allemang sat on its advisory council from 1985 to 1992.

This series also contains files on a number of other health and nursing related organizations in which Professor Allemang was active. One was the Ontario Council of Health where, in the late 1960s, she served on its sub-committee on research in nursing that was chaired by Harding le Riche. Another was the Ontario Society for the History of Nursing, where she was active in its nursing archives survey in the early 1990s. There are also files on a wide range of conferences other than those mentioned above, and on the Elderhostel program in Ontario and the Lambda Pi Chapter, at the University of Toronto, of the Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing.

The material in this series consists primarily of correspondence, legal documents, minutes, memoranda, flyers, conference programs and presentations, newsletters and reports. The arrangement is alphabetical by name of organization.

Research

This series contains research files for Professor Allemang's doctoral thesis from the University of Washington in Seattle and the oral history interviews she conducted or directed as a part of her project to record the memories of nursing sisters who had served in World War I and World War II.

The series begins with files of correspondence relating to the researching and writing of her thesis, including the proposal accepted by her supervising committee in 1968 and the report of the thesis reading committee in 1974. She compiled two proposals for the thesis. The first, 'Nursing model based on existentialism', was rejected by her thesis committee while the second, on the history of nursing education in the United States and Canada, was accepted in 1968. The details of both proposals are present, along with the notes associated with her first proposal. These files are followed (in boxes 011 and 012) by the research notes she compiled, primarily on her second proposal, beginning with a number of general files containing notebooks, some of which are titled and which contain, amongst other information, notes on specific chapters of the thesis. These have been left in the order in which they were received.

Beginning with box 013, the research notes have titles (supplied by Professor Allemang herself) on a wide range of topics relating to the history of nursing. The arrangement is alphabetical. Included are notes taken from specific journals such as the American Journal of Nursing and the Canadian Nurse, while many of the files are directly on the pioneering leaders of nursing in the United States and Canada - especially Adelaide M. Nutting - and, of course, Florence Nightingale. Amongst other areas covered are specific Canadian hospitals, broad and specific aspects of medicine, nursing education, the philosophy of history and public health nursing.

There are 17 interviews with the nursing sisters from World Wars I and II, done by Professor Allemang and others. There is more than one draft for some and most are heavily annotated. The arrangement is by war and then alphabetically by name of interviewee. The interviews are not in final format and not all the interviewees are included. (Some of the transcribed interviews were bound and distributed.)

Manuscripts, publications, and addresses

This series is a largely complete record of Professor Allemang's writings that, for the most part, resulted in publication. Her literary oeuvre was not a large one, but it contains a number of firsts. Her doctoral thesis was one of the earliest dissertations in clinical nursing and the first such study of Canadian institutions. Her research project in conjunction with Toronto Western Hospital, The experiences of eight cardiac patients during a period of hospitalization in a General Hospital (1960) was the first patient care study of its kind conducted in Canada.

History of nursing and nursing education materials

The manuscripts and publications in this series consist of addresses, manuscripts, reports and theses that were associated with the University of Toronto's nursing program, programs at other institutions, and the broader subject of nursing education generally. Professor Allemang was not the author of any of these documents but was asked to comment on some of them. The arrangement is by author and, where no author exists, by title.

The series begins with an address by Mr. Allway on nursing education at the University of Toronto (1980). It is followed by the first Elsie Stephenson Memorial Lecture delivered by Professor Helen Carpenter at the University of Edinburgh (1973); a draft of a paper by Barbara Craig on the development and managing of nursing archives (1993), other reports on nursing issues by Professors John Crispo of the School of Business (1963), Rosella Cunningham (1972) and Margaret Hume (1978), and Judy Young (1991?). There is also a draft of Dorothy Hill's doctoral thesis from the University of Waterloo (1966), a typescript, 'Report of a study of the psychiatric affiliation' (195-), that Professor Allemang considered significant, and a mimeograph of a health survey report by Marguerite Williams of the City of Toronto (1974). There is also a copy of Celebrate the centenary, 1898-1998, issued by the Toronto Western Hospital Nurses Alumnae Association.

There are two files from individuals seeking Professor Allemang's expertise, with her comments. In 1991 Dorothy Stinson of the University of Alberta sought her input into an introductory bibliography of a course at the University of Alberta, 'Nursing 684: History and politics of nursing'. In 1993 Barbara Sibbald asked her for advice on an article on the current threat to self regulation that she was penning for CAN Today.

Academic activity files

This series contains documents pulled together by Prof. Armatage for her tenure review as well as for subsequent yearly reviews. Files contain mainly professional correspondence, descriptive reports on research and teaching activities, yearly activity reports and clippings about her work. There is information on promotions, awards, research leaves and grants. Clippings in this series also give evidence to Prof. Armatage’s work outside mainstream academia including her role as a documentary filmmaker and curator for the Toronto International Film Festival.

Teaching

This series consists of course files that can contain lectures, course outlines, assignments, and reading lists. It documents Prof. Armatage’s approach to the teaching of both Women’s Studies and Cinema Studies in the early years as they were emerging into disciplines of study and research.
