Convocation files

Series consists of records relating to the convocation ceremonies held at SFU to award undergraduate, graduate, and honorary degrees. Records include Convocation booklet, programs, invitations, guest lists, books of words (order of proceedings), timetables, correspondence, notes, publications, press releases, news clippings, speeches, and other documents.

Note that files from 1990s onwards contain fewer document types, often only the Convocation booklet and book of words; and from 2006 only the Convocation booklet. The format of the booklet changed little from 1967 to 2005. Since ca. 2006, the booklet has been produced by Communication Services, a unit of Student Services (the Spring 2006 booklet is the first to credit Student Services).

John Howard Society of the Lower Mainland of British Columbia fonds

  • F-1
  • Fonds
  • 1922 - 2013

The records of the John Howard Society of the Lower Mainland of British Columbia consist of the Society's administrative records and client case files and cards used to document information about individual clients. They encompass work done as a provincial society and also as a working office in the Lower Mainland.

The administrative records of the Society document all aspects of the Society's work. They are broken down into three separate series, reflecting the particular manner in which the Society operated. First, a separate series of miscellaneous records which the Society appears to have kept apart from its established file system dates from 1932 to 1988. A second series of administrative records dating from 1932 to about 1968 reflects the Society's file classification plan in use at the time (see Appendix B1 - hard-copy finding aid only). A third group of administrative records reflects a new file classification plan which replaced the earlier file system (see Appendix B2 - hard-copy finding aid only). Administrative records that have accrued to the fonds have been added to this series.

Later records demonstrate the increased activity of the society in addressing the social problems of crime, including victim assistance programs and community assessments, as well as administration of halfway houses.

Individual case files and cards provide evidence of the Society's involvement with clients on probation including repeat or 'habitual' offenders, as well as prison visits, counseling sessions and other related actions undertaken by the Society on behalf of its clients.

Records comprising this fonds are records created at the Vancouver office of the Society, and do not include records created by the various regional offices.

Photographs

This sub-series consists of photographic black & white and color images depicting the Sons of Freedom’s various protest and gathering activities from 1927 until 1993. The protests and gatherings were results of various circumstances that the Sons of Freedom found unjustly and worthy of fighting against. Some of the protest were the response to the Canadian government treatment of the Sons, including detention of the children or prison sentences given for arson and public nudity. Other protests were prompted by discontent with leadership issues and divisions within the Doukhobor community as well as by eagerness to demonstrate the Sons’ beliefs. This sub-series includes images of protesters gathering, marching and/or being arrested; images of trek to Aggasiz and camp settlement; images of arson; images of nude protests and images of visits to New Denver School Dormitory where the Sons of Freedom children were detained
