Name of creator
Candace Parker originally gave the material to Frances Wasserlein to use for her thesis with the understanding that the material would eventually be donated to an archives.
Scope and content
In 1970 Candace Parker was a member of the Vancouver Women's Caucus and a graduate student at the University of British Columbia. For a sociology class, Parker and Sibylle Klein wrote an essay, "Developing An Ideology: the Feminist Movement in North America," which drew upon Parker's experiences in Women's Caucus. Candace Parker was also interviewed by Frances Wasserlein and the transcript of that interview is contained in the Frances Wasserlein fonds, F-162.
The collection consists of research material collected by Candace Parker in the course of preparing her essay plus some additional feminist literature acquired afterwards. Includes notes and drafts, news clippings, reprints, broadsheets, position papers, briefs, newsletters, and newspapers.
Immediate source of acquisition
Acquired from Frances Wasserlein. Donated to the SFU Archives by Candace Parker in 2001.
The materials were arranged by the archivist. The original arrangement (2001) had no series; files were arranged alphabetically, items (newspapers) chronologically. In 2012, the archivist created separate series for the subject files (retained in alphabetical order) and for the newspapers, with a file created for each newspaper title.
