Arthur M. Zimmerman fonds

  • UTA 1989
  • Fonds
  • 1956–1997

The records that make up the Arthur M. Zimmerman fonds document his professional activities and research endeavours from the 1960s to the present. They are rich in correspondence and manuscript drafts of articles and seminars that document the collaborative research efforts among Zimmerman and his colleagues. The correspondence files are especially insightful on Zimmerman’s relationship with his students both while they were under his supervision and later in their careers. Series of professional correspondence, recommendations, reviews and editorial positions give evidence to Zimmerman’s role as an expert whose knowledge and opinions were sought by his peers. Finally, records that reflect his teachings of courses within in the Department of Zoology are contained more or less in one series, Teaching Files.

Finally as one might expect in personal records, there is very little evidence of his role in University administrative positions. Neither is there any significant amount of records documenting his personal life. The Personal Correspondence series, for example, contains mainly correspondence regarding professional appointments and remuneration.

These records will be of general interest to researchers studying the history of science and particularly of cellular biology, the history of the teaching of science, and the history of any of the associations to which Dr. Zimmerman was active. It may also be useful to those researching the role of scientists in society in general, especially with respect to the their influence on issues surrounding drug abuse.

Sir Daniel Wilson Family Photographic Collection

  • UTA 1965
  • Collection
  • [1855?]-1930

This collection consists of 430 stereographs. They were assembled primarily by Sir Daniel Wilson and likely his daughter Sybil after his death.

Also included here are images of Toronto, the University of Toronto, the Toronto Magnetic and Meteorological Observatory, and two of the American Civil War.

Note on Sir Daniel Wilson

Sir Daniel Wilson was an accomplished amateur artist and much interested in the new medium of photography. He collected photographs, primarily in the stereographic medium, wherever he travelled and asked his friends to send images to him. He travelled widely following his arrival in Canada in 1853. In his first decade “he went as far south as Virginia and Kentucky, as far east as Prout’s Neck, Maine, as far west as the St. Louis River, and as far north as Lake Nipigon” [1]. He travelled many times along the St. Lawrence River and the Saguenay in that decade and later, made two trips to the upper Great Lakes (1855 and 1866), was introduced to the Green Mountains in New Hampshire and the Adirondacks and historic sites in New York, and in 1862 visited Washington and Civil War battle sites in Virginia. In 1863 he returned to Britain and Europe for the first time (he would go to again in 1878, 1880, 1885 and 1891). In the 1870s, his travels to him along the Muskoka and Severn Rivers (1870), and to Native sites in Kentucky and Ohio (1874).

After Wilson became President of University College in 1880, he sought escape from the heat of Toronto summers in New Hampshire and the eastern seaboard of the United States. In August of 1881 he first visited the White Mountains in New Hampshire where he was inspired to take up painting again, and to which he returned in 1882, 1883, 1886, and from 1887 to 1890. There, with his wife Margaret until her death in 1885, and his daughter Sybil, he sought out sites “with indelibly North American names, in which he clearly revelled” – Black Mountain, Cascade Brook, Mount Osceola, Mount Tecumseth, the Mad River, and Scar Ridge [2]. In 1883 he vacationed along the Atlantic coast of Maine and in 1884 he went to the Adirondacks around Lake Placid.

Joseph Stanley Will fonds

  • UTA 1954
  • Fonds
  • 1900-1959

The records in this fonds consist of a single accession and appear to be all that have survived documenting the academic life of Prof. Joseph Stanley Will. Originally received by the Rare Book Department (MS Collection No. 33) of the University of Toronto Library after Prof. Will’s death in 1964, they were transferred to the University Archives in 2004. They appear to have been part of a larger purchase of Prof. Will’s collection of 16th century books mainly on France. The papers consist of some correspondence and a few manuscripts and other personal papers. By far the bulk of the Fonds consist of card files compiled during the many years he researched Protestantism in France in particular and French literature in general. Unfortunately, the original arrangement of these card files was disturbed and some cards are not in any apparent order. Apart from the manuscript for what appears to be the first four chapters of the unpublished Volume I, no other manuscripts for Prof. Will’s other works are contained within this accession.
