Name of creator
Koenraad Kuiper attended SFU as a graduate student from 1969-1972, earning a PhD in Linguistics. He has published numerous books and articles on topics such as formulaic speech and language acquisition, and is a Professor Emeritus at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand.
The records were in the custody and control of the creator prior to their transfer to Archives in 2022.
Scope and content
The series consists of one file made up of materials that were deposited in Koenraad Kuiper's graduate student mailbox in 1969. Taken as a whole, it provides a sense of the types of materials that were circulating on campus during a tumultuous period in SFU's history.
Records include reports, articles, newsletters, and correspondence related to the PSA affair; memorandums and correspondence about the trial of the 114 students who were arrested for occupying the Academic Services building; a report from the Presidential Search Committee; copies of articles from The Peak; a copy of Focos magazine; two issues of SFU Komix; a copy of the first issue of SFU Comment; and miscellaneous materials related to Kuiper's role as a graduate student.
