Scope and content

This small series encompasses three professional organizations with which Professor Barbour was involved. There is a slim folder of correspondence from when he was editor of the Canadian Mathematical Bulletin, and extensive files on the Gelfand Club of Ontario, a correspondence program founded in 1969 by Professor Israel Halperin of the University of Toronto “to provide resource material for able secondary school students interested in mathematics and to encourage them to correspond with mathematicians.” Professor Barbeau took over the program in January 1970 and ran it until October, 1978. The files contain notes, problem sets, and answers.

There are also three slim files on his involvement with the Mathematical Association of America, including its joint meeting in Toronto in 1976 and short courses Professor Barbeau offered for it in 1991 and 1993.
