Innis 2010 accession

Academic Robe is black with three dark blue velvet bands on the sleeves and velvet facing running down the front of the gown in the style of American academic gowns for doctoral degrees in philosophy. Monogram “H.A.I.” inside back collar. Black cloth academic cap with tassel size 7, with hand written label “Innis, H.A.” on inside.

Prof. Innis received his Doctorate in Philosophy (Ph.D) from the University of Chicago in 1920.

Travel

This series documents Professor Spencer’s travels, both for pleasure and for academic and other professional purposes. The first of his trips documented here is to New York City in 1946; the last is to Europe in 2011.

The files contain an assortment of flight information, correspondence, itineraries, invitations, notes, postcards, diaries and reports (indicated below where they exist), programmes for a wide variety of events, menus, tickets, passenger lists, booklets, maps, photographs, press clippings, and other memorabilia. 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. The often extensive correspondence in these files ranges from that with Canadian government, consular, and military officials to military officials at NATO and elsewhere in Europe and England, to academic and government personnel in Western Europe. Included are files on Professor Spencer’s involvement with the Atlantic Council of Canada, the Committee on Atlantic Studies, and the Canadian Studies Association.

Some of the folders in this series contain correspondence, postcards, reports, and other items that are well outside the dates of the activities being described.

The photoprints, postcards, and artifacts (pin buttons) have been retained in the relevant files. Files containing receipts only (such as transportation, car rentals, luggage, and accommodation) were not kept and the retention of such material in other files is selective. Fax paper, where present, has been photocopied and the original faxes, most of which had deteriorated badly, have been destroyed.

Additional information about some of these trips can be found in Series 7: Correspondence.

Personal Artifacts

Series consists of one black and white photograph of a gravestone that reads Sloane. Verso is annotated to read “Fathers Birthdate Mothers Birthdate” Series also includes a Christian bible published in 1952 and annotated to read: “John Sloane Christmas 1959 from Ruby;” and a metal cross typical of those installed in a home.

Research and Writings

This series documents Dr. Moldofsky’s research activities and writings, except for the Microgravity, Sleep and Immune Functions in Humans (SWIF) project which is documented in Series 3. Includes draft research papers, lecture slides, conference presentations, and reports. Topics covered include sleep disorders, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue. Also included are digital files (originally on a CD) related to his more recent research on Disordered Sleep Physiology, Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain, Fatigue and Psychological Disturbances in Canadian Military Personnel with and without PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress disorder).

Finally, the series includes the first working model of a sleep apnea machine (ca. 1983), which was put together by Moldofsky and staff in his Sleep Lab, based on the ideas and research of Dr. Colin Sullivan of Australia, who had previously been Dr. Moldofsky’s student as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Medicine at the University of Toronto.

Microgravity, Sleep and Immune Functions in Humans (SWIF)

This series documents Dr. Moldofsky’s research activities, in particular, his two major research projects on Microgravity, Sleep and Immune Functions in Humans (SWIF) with the Canadian Space Agency and NASA, funded through the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

The first project (1995-1999) studied the influence of gravity change on sleep and the immune system in astronauts. The aim of this research was to further advance the studies of disordered sleep and altered immune functions observed in distressing circumstances, and in patients with psychiatric (major depression) and medical conditions (i.e. fibromyalgia, post febrile chronic fatigue syndrome). This experiment was conducted during the Mir 23/NASA 4 and Mir 24 missions in 1997-1998.

The second project of the same title (2000-2003) involved experiments carried out in space but then subsequently lost during the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster. This second phase aimed to understand bone loss in astronauts in space as well as osteoporosis on Earth, believing that chemical changes in the human immune system – possibly triggered by sleep deprivation – could instead be a major cause of bone loss in space and on the ground (as opposed to just microgravity).

Included in this series: grant applications; correspondence; files related to visits to the Russian Space Agency in Star City and the Johnson Space Center in Houston (including photographs); baseline data collection (BDC) data sets; and final reports. Also included are EEG electrode caps used by American and Russian astronauts aboard the MIR space station.

Personal and Biographical

Series consists of files documenting the life of Harvey Moldofsky, including his curriculum vitae, some personal and professional correspondence, certificates and awards, various press clippings about him, photographs, and artifacts. Photographs include a young Moldofsky in Medical School with classmates in the anatomy lab; son David and wife Zelda; group photographs from conferences attended; and of staff and the laboratory at the Centre for Sleep Chronobiology.

Davidson Black kept a diary throughout much of his adult life. There are 28 volumes in this series. The earliest is for 1902, the year he entered medicine at the University of Toronto; it includes a tally of monthly expenses. The last diary is for 1934, the final entry being for 9 March, six days before his death. For each of the years 1922 and 1925, there are two volumes of diaries. There are no diaries present for the years 1907, 1908, 1909, 1911, and 1912. The diary Davidson kept while on active service during World War I is filed with his service records in Series 4. Most of the entries are brief as the diaries, except for 1902, are small. Some of the loose entries with the diaries are longer.

A number of items document his personal activities. The earliest is a small well-thumbed copy of 'The Book of Common Prayer', presented to him by his mother on his 9th birthday in 1893. A notebook, a journal, and permits document his early interest in ornithology. Finally, there are files of memorabilia, poems and sketches, and on honours bestowed on him later in life, along with twelve diplomas and certificates.

Employment

Except for photographs, this series contains little documentation on Davidson Black’s employment before 1917 when he enlisted with the Canadian Army Medical Corps and went overseas. The bulk of this series relates to his work in China at the Peking Union Medical College, his anthropological research including his discovery of "Peking man", and his travels within China and to Mongolia, India, Siam, and elsewhere.

The files contain correspondence, photographs, addresses, and publications (including some drafts), and memorabilia. Most of the photographs were taken by Dr. Black himself, though some were taken by Adena and others (especially presentation copies) by friends and colleagues. Dr. Black carefully annotated many of the photos he took, often in considerable detail even to the time of day and the shutter speed used. Included are a few glass-plate negatives and about 50 lantern slides. The negatives are usually dated and were kept except if they were in good condition. On his travels, Dr. Black collected autographed photographs of many of the scientists and academics he met; these are included in this series.
