Scope and content

This series begins with and address by Professor Friedland on his writing of the history of the University of Toronto and his application for the position. Next are early notes, chronologies, chapter outlines and correspondence relating to getting the project under way. The series ends with more detailed outlines (arranged chronologically by the names of the University presidents) in which many of the issues raised are threshed out in memos with his research assistants: Kelly DeLuca, Charles Levi, Tim Meadowcroft, Michael McCulloch and Sam Robinson. These assistants, all law students with the exception of Levi (who was about to complete his doctorate in history) but with varying backgrounds in other fields (some had doctorates), worked with Professor Friedland over the summer of 1998. The law students returned to their studies in September but worked occasionally on special projects while Charles Levi stayed on as the principal researcher, to be joined in a year later by Patrick Okens whose specialty was athletics.

The files contain correspondence, notes, memoranda, lists, and an address.
