Scope and content

At the time of his appointment as full professor in 1968, Prof. Russell was also appointed as Acting Principal of Innis College. He was appointed principal in 1971 for a period of 5 years. He was also Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Political Science from 1987-1993.

Records from accession B2005-0001 in this series document these appointments. In addition to these official administrative duties, this series also documents his involvement in other campus committees such as the December Study Group, an informal association of faculty members which met to discuss ‘matters of common interest’ among which was the development of academic programs in the Faculty of Arts and Science. Its first meeting was held in December, 1965. The establishment of this group coincided with the expected growth of enrolment at the University of Toronto during next few years. Included in this file is their response to the MacPherson Committee (the Presidential Advisory Committee on Undergraduate Instruction in the Faculty of Arts and Science) in 1967. Other files include the Library Users Committee (1965), the U of T Residence Plan (1959-1961).

Records from B2017-0006 and B2019-0008 in this series further document Prof. Russell’s involvement in various UofT committees, such as the Manuscript Advisory Committee for the University of Toronto Press, the Group on Indigenous Government, the Project Planning Committee for the Seniors Centre, and the Faculty Club.
