Name of creator
Manfred Mackauer was a professor of biology at Simon Fraser University. He retired from his teaching duties in 1997.
Scope and content
From 1969 to 1970, Mackauer served as vice-president of the Simon Fraser University Faculty Assocation (SFUFA), and from 1970 to 1971 he served as SFUFA's president. During his time on the SFUFA executive, the university underwent a period of unrest culminating in the strike of eight faculty members in the Political Science, Sociology, and Anthropology (PSA) Department. After the Board of Governors fired three of the suspended professors and cancelled part of the university's document protecting faculty rights, the SFUFA executive called for a vote of non-confidence in the Board and SFU President Kenneth Strand. When faculty members rejected the executive's recommendation, Mackauer and three other members of the executive resigned.
Collection consists primarily of the SFUFA president's correspondence during the PSA crisis. In addition, there is some correspondence concerning other matters of interest to faculty members such as salary negotiations, pensions, and sabbatical leave. Records include correspondence, clippings, notes, minutes, legal statements, reports and other documents.
