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.

The arrangement is chronological by trip. Beginning in April, 1977 and continuing while he was director until his retirement in 1986, a lot of Professor Spencer’s travel was done as an extension of the work of the Centre for International Studies. For the first of these trips, he wrote a detailed report of his activities.

Spencer began numbering his letters home on 28 February 1943 when he was about to be stationed at Camp Debert, Nova Scotia. Between then and 23 March 1945 he wrote at least 312 letters home; then started, but did not maintain, a new numbering system.

These are followed by various family letters, including some sent by Spencer (1943-1947), letters to and from third parties, letters to and from his parents between 1946 and 1950, and letters (1946-1948) between Robert and Ruth Church whom he married on 22 June 1948.

University of Toronto. Chair of Ukrainian Studies

This series provides a comprehensive overview of the issues surrounding the controversy that raged between 1978 and 1980 over the filling of the newly created Chair of Ukrainian Studies at the University of Toronto. As the controversy heated up, Professor Luckyj resigned from the Search Committee in November, 1979 and opposed the appointment of the chosen candidate, Paul Magocsi. In addition to University officials and departments, most Ukrainian organizations in Canada became directly involved in or had opinions on the events as they unfolded. Amongst the latter were the the Ukrainian Students Clubs at the University of Toronto and the University of Alberta, the Ukrainian Studies Foundation, the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, and the Canadian National Youth Federation of Canada.

The records here form the complete file that was compiled by Professor Luckyj. The controversy is documented through the use of correspondence, minutes, memoranda, notes, interviews, letters to the editor, and articles in the press. Professor Luckyj has assembled a complete account of the events as portrayed in the faculty/staff and student press at the University of Toronto, the local press, and Ukrainian language papers in Canada.
