University of Toronto

This series consists of two subseries documenting Prof Paul's teaching and research activities in the Department of Physics.

Science for Peace

Science for Peace was founded by a group of University of Toronto scientists in 1980. It evolved out of a University of Toronto ad hoc committee, chaired by Eric Fawcett, Department of Physics, called "Directing Science for Peace". This committee was formed in 1980 to draw up a proposal on nuclear disarmament for presentation to the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The group changed its name to Science for Peace after the committee was disbanded. Its objectives are to encourage scientific activities directed toward peace and to urge publication and dissemination of the findings of peace research; to encourage educational activities directed toward peace; to interact with expert groups, such as Canadian Pugwash; and to make specific proposals and take positive action toward reducing the dangers of war. Prof. Derek Paul was one of the founding members, along with Ursula Franklin (metallurgist), John Polanyi (chemist), Jon Cohen (political economy) and others.

This series consists of records relating to publications of Science for Peace collected by Prof. Paul as a board member and as Publications Director from 1988-1990 and 1992-1993. Some publications resulted from papers presented at conferences sponsored by Science for Peace. Thus included in this series are conference papers and correspondence as well as draft manuscripts for the final publication. With one exception, "Integrity of the Earth and Life: the Third Point", [see Box /015 (07)] all titles were accepted for publication by the SFP Publications Committee.

Also included are Board of Directors minutes, correspondence, and records related to a workshop on Chemical Warfare.

Teaching files and lecture notes

The series begins with background files for teaching that Professor McLeod assembled over the years on multicultural education, race relations and racism, Philippe Rushton, and teachers’ education.

The files in this series contain course outlines for most of the courses taught in the two departments, which Professor McLeod headed, but the emphasis is on the courses that he himself taught. Most of his courses were offered at the Ontario School of Education/
Faculty of Education, with a few graduate ones at OISE. There are two files (in B1997-0018) on a graduate seminar in cross-cultural education that McLeod gave at the University of Manitoba in 1976-1977.

The principal course that McLeod taught were the history/development of Canadian education, cross-cultural education, multiculturalism in education (including summer courses), English as a second language, the process of becoming a teacher, and adult education, all at the Faculty of Education. Courses given by McLeod at OISE include problems in Canadian education and the sociology of minority groups. In the early 1990s, there is extensive material on the evolution of the primary/junior options program in elementary education, and from 1991 on the emphasis is on developing courses in the new Department of Policy and Foundation Studies. New programs in adult education, in particular, were developed. In 1989-1990, McLeod taught a night school course in multiculturalism to ESL students in the Region of Peel.

The files contain course registrations and lists of students, course outlines and bibliographies numerous notes, some lecture notes, some term papers, and exams.

Professional activities

The files in this series relate almost wholly to the journal, Multiculturalism, which Professor McLeod founded in 1977 and of which he was the editor until the autumn of 1993. From 1984, to make the journal more inclusive, the editorial in each issue was translated into French and information about some of the writers and précis of the articles were written in French.

The files, which begin with his initial proposals in 1976, contain correspondence and notes regarding the founding of the journal, some financial records, a readership survey, correspondence and notes relating to manuscripts submitted, along with a selection of the latter (most of which were rejected, with reasons given). Although few were signed, Professor McLeod wrote all the editorials for Multiculturalism except for a few written by the associate editor or members of the editorial board [for example, IV, 1 (1980) and XIV, 2/3 (1992)] and by guest editors [such as II, 4 (1979), III, 4 (1980), IV, 2 (1980)]. Many of these editorials are found in Series 6: Manuscripts and publications.

There is also a file on Professor McLeod’s editing of the 2nd issue of the Journal of Ethno-Development (1992) and another on assessments of book manuscripts.
