Scope and content
Consists of transcripts and tapes of interviews with individuals working at the University of Toronto Press. The interviews were arranged by Prof. Victor Hoar of the University of Western Ontario, who had a grant to carry out an "oral history" project concerning academic publishing in Canada. Dr. Hoar later changed his surname to Howard. The tapes and transcripts were transferred to the Archives in 1979, with the intention of adding them to the Archives' own oral history collection.
Box 1 contains transcripts of interviews with Harold Bohne, Miss Cragg (now Mrs. D. Sutherland), ___ Fanning, Allan Fleming, J.G. Garden, Roy Gurney, and Eleanor Harmon.
Box 2 contains transcripts of interviews with D. Hayne, Marshall Jeanneret, Hillary Marshall, Ian Montagnes, and B. Plewman.
