Name of creator
In 1964, the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies (CRRS) was established by the Board of Regents to be: a research institute dedicated to the Renaissance and Reformation while having the Andrew James Bell Erasmus collection at its core, and; to develop a broader collection of reference works, texts, and bibliographical material for the period of ca. 1500-1700. The CRRS was co-publisher of the journal Renaissance and Reformation, it later began publishing the journals Early Theatre and Confraternitas, as well as five lines of books.
In 2020 the CRRS slightly altered their name to the Centre for Renaissance and Reformation Studies.
The records in series 4 were received by the CRRS from the Canadian Society for Renaissance Studies (CSRS), who then transferred them to the archivist at a later date.
