Scope and content

This series contains a diverse set of records documenting many of the main research projects under taken by Prof. Prentice. Many resulted in publications of books and this series therefore relates to records found in Series 7 Publishing. Projects documented include:

1) the history of teachers, especially women in teaching – research was done for a book that was being prepared with Marta Kanylewycz on teachers in Quebec, before her untimely death in 1985

2) women in physics including some oral histories in the form of written notes

3) studies on the status of women in the historical profession – prepared for a session organized for a Canadian Historical Association conference in 1990

4) research on women historians including taped interviews and correspondence on her co-edited book Creating Historical Memory

5) research undertaken as part of the Women and Professional Education Network that resulted in the co-edited book Challenging Professions.

There are also several other smaller research interests documented including research on faculty wives, women on University of Toronto campus, the feminization of maps, as well as a file on the McQueen project undertaken with Margaret Conrad of the University of New Brunswick. Also included are oral histories transcripts and tapes for interviews with Elizabeth Allin, Charity Grant, Jean Burnet, and Bertha Houston. There are also several other interviews contained only on tape including Canadian women scholars Ursala Franklin, Margaret Prang, Debby Gorban as well as several of Prof. Prentice’ graduate students, Australian educational historians and former faculty wives.

Files contain extensive correspondence and e-mail mainly among the research partners who were among the first generation of historians to focus on women’s history. The correspondence gives a solid portrayal of the collaborative nature of this research. Also included are research notes and collected essays, drafts of papers and chapters, oral history tapes and transcripts, grant applications and at times correspondence relating to publishing.
