Scope and content

This series consists of biographical information about James Till, primarily in the form of press clippings, biographical sketches he penned, university diplomas for BA (1952) and MA (1954) from University of Saskatchewan, curriculum vitae, and two full length articles about him and his work. Records documenting honours and awards include the original certificates, correspondence, and photographs documenting recognition in his field of expertise, honorary degrees from University of Lethbridge, the University of Saskatchewan, as well as the University of Toronto (see also Series 3) as well as civic honours such as the Order of Canada and the Order of Ontario. Also included are files relating to the induction into the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame (2004), including a video, and the Albert Lasker Basic Medical Research Award (2005) both received jointly with Dr. Ernest McCulloch. Manuscripts of some speeches may be found in some files, as well as Series 8.
