Admissions publications

Sub-series consists of records relating to the admission of students to SFU. Records include admission brochures and documents describing admission requirements.

Interviews for Peter Poole's master's thesis

Poole conducted a large group of interviews in the Lower Mainland. His subjects included labour representatives from Operation Solidarity (the trade union component of the movement), representatives from the Solidarity Coalition (the community component) and Leo McGrady, who headed the law firm that defended the unions before the Labour Relations Board and the courts.

Interviews of Terrace/Kitimat trade unionists

Peter Poole lived in Terrace for a number of years in the late seventies and early eighties and was especially active in the Terrace/Kitimat Labour Council). His interview subects comprised a cross-section of people from different unions and different occupations: for example, a teacher (BCTF), academic faculty from Northwest College (CUPE), a federal fisheries officer (PSAC), a library clerk (BCGEU), pulp mill workers and aluminum smelter workers (CAIMAW and CASAW), and a labourer (Rock & Tunnel Union). Records include one file listing the interviewees and the sound recordings of the interviews.

Interviews for a previous solidarity movement essay

During 1984, while Poole was a student at SFU, he wrote an essay on the solidarity movement, Progressive Activism and the Solidarity Movement: Towards a Radical Perspective. Interviewees were chosen from a number of left-wing activists who had been directly involved with the solidarity struggle or who had followed it closely. Sub-series includes 1 file listing interviewees and the sound recordings of the interviews.

Sound and moving images collection

Sub-series consists of sound and moving image material created by or relating to the Faculty of Education; includes Brent Reid's "SFU's Professional Development Program" (1981; U-matic and VHS) and a discussion with John Ellis, Selma Wasserman, and Glenn Kirchner from 1998.

Bee Masters Program

Sub-series comprises material relating to the Bee Masters program. Bee Masters is an intensive course in advanced beekeeping sponsored by the British Columbia ministry responsible for agriculture. The first course was held in 1955. Since around 1986, it has been held at Simon Fraser University and offered jointly by the BC government and SFU's Department of Biological Sciences. Early courses were lengthier to include a field trip to a beekeeping location, while later courses dropped the field trip component and thus shortened to five days in length. Documents include the first written examinations from 1955 and 1958, course outlines, lectures, articles, participant and speakers lists, evaluations, forms, correspondence, pamphlets, and other course material.

Academic calendars

Sub-series consists of academic calendars published in print form by the university for each academic year. The sub-series represents a complete run of all print editions, from SFU's first academic year (1965-66) to the final year for which a print edition was produced (2009-10).

From 1965-66 until 1981-82, SFU produced separate calendars for undergraduate and graduate studies. The format changed in 1982-83, with a single calendar covering both undergraduate and graduate programs. The calendar continued in this format until 2010, when the university discontinued the print edition. Since that time, SFU maintains the calendar as a web-based product only. At the present time of writing (October 2017), the digital records for the calendar from 2010 onwards remain in the custody and control of Registrar's Office / Student Services.

In 2015, the Archives digitized a complete set of the calendars. This sub-series includes both the print editions and digitized copies.

Brochures, booklets and posters

Sub-series consists of graphic materials and booklets relating to the productions and programs of the School and its predecessors. Records include brochures, season catalogues (a series of booklets describing public programming events, 1965-1974), posters and prints. Among the records are an autographed poster signed by five members of the visiting Royal Shakespeare Companey (item 1) and 19 prints collected from the 1960s San Francisco - Berkeley, California area, including posters for performances by the Grateful Dead, Country Joe and the Fish, Captain Beefheart, and various theatre productions at the University of California Berkeley campus (file 3).
