The series of committee records (series 3) includes no or very few files from several of the faculty's standing committees (Field Programs, Appointments, Tenure and Promotion, and Research Opportunities). The holdings of the early centres and departments of the faculty (series 4) are slight, with the exception of those for the Department of Behavioural Science Foundations. Of the program area divisions established after the 1972 reorganization (five as of 2008), only one (Professional Programs) has transferred its records to the Archives (series 5).

Institute of Fisheries Analysis fonds

  • F-240
  • Fonds
  • 1960 - 1998

The fonds consists of records made and received by the Institute of Fisheries Analysis in the course of administering its day-to-day operations.

Records in the fonds include correspondence, minutes, contracts, internal directories, reports, discussion papers, subject files (relating to fisheries research), press clippings, and IFA brochures.

Note that the records of the Institute of Fisheries Analysis contain university records from the Centre for Canadian Studies and the Department of Economics and Commerce. This anomaly likely occurred because of Parzival Copes’s involvement as director and instructor within each of these bodies. The records he used would have been maintained together in whichever office he occupied. For further information on these records see the descriptions and notes for Series F-240-5: Centre for Canadian Studies records and Series F-240-6: Department of Economics and Commerce records.
