This series contains some administrative files relating to Spencer’s tenure as a Professor of History and director of the Centre for International Studies. Included are materials on the School of Graduate Studies reviews of the Centre in 1980-81 and 1985-86, the attempt to close the Centre in 1986, and lectures sponsored by the Centre. The series is divided into three subseries: University of Toronto; Department of History; Centre of International Studies; and the Canadian Institute of International Affairs.
The files contain a range of material, including correspondence, minutes of meetings, memoranda, notes, flyers, reports, addresses, conference programmes, and press clippings. The arrangement is generally chronological within each area of activity.
