  • F-18
  • Fonds
  • 1963 - 2011

Fonds consists of records created and received by LIDC and its predecessors in the course of their activities. Activities documented include the provision of media support for academic teaching and research, and creation of publications and media productions that promote the university and document campus happenings. Records include photographs in various formats (negatives, contact sheets, prints, slides), graphic design materials (drawings and cartoons), sound recordings and moving images.

The fonds has been arranged into three series based on media type and subject:

Koenraad Kuiper graduate student mailbox collection

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.

Campus community SFU history collection

  • F-326
  • Collection
  • 1964-2020

The University Archives regularly receives donations of material related to SFU history from members of the University community (e.g., alumni, former staff and faculty, members of the general public, etc.). These donations usually consist of a small number of files and/or items that either focus on a single subject or event, or form a more general collection of material accumulated through a donors' connection to SFU.

When the Archives first started acquiring these types of materials, individual collections were created and named after the donor(s) (e.g., Mr. and Mrs. X SFU history collection). Very quickly, the Archives had several small collections on SFU history spread across its holdings, which it made it difficult for researchers to search and identify such similar groups of records. As a way to make these collections more accessible, the Archives decided to group them together under the umbrella of this collection, with a series created for each donation to preserve the chain of custody.

A description of the activities and and topics documented in the collection can be found in the scope and content note at each series level.

The collection has been arranged into 8 series that consist of material received from separate donors:

  • Gene Waddell SFU architecture manuscript (series 1)
  • Carolyn Hegberg SFU history collection (series 2)
  • Kersti Krug SFU staff experience article (series 3)
  • Sally and John Pankratz SFU Athletics collection (series 4)
  • Breaks Bros. Construction Ltd. SFU construction collection (series 5)
  • Helena Turner SFU charter student colloquium collection (series 6)
  • Bob and Donelda Wilson SFU Sports Car Club collection (series 7)
  • Koenraad Kuiper graduate student mailbox collection (series 8)

Faculty of Education fonds

  • F-233
  • Fonds
  • 1963 - 2005

The fonds consists of records made and received by the Faculty of Education in the course of administering its programs and operations. Activities documented include policy and procedures development, budget planning, and relations with staff, faculty members, and students; the self-governance of the faculty through the faculty meeting and faculty committees; the evolution of the faculty's administrative structure and its re-organizations; the administration of faculty departments and centres (prior to 1972) and program area divisions (after 1972); the development of curriculum and delivery of courses; liaison with other SFU bodies and departments, other universities, government bodies and agencies, school boards, and professional associations relating to education; and special events held by the faculty, including conferences, colloquia, and public lecture series. Textual records include meeting agenda and minutes, reports, correspondence, publications, statistics, notes and working papers. Non-textual media include photographic material, architectural drawings, and audio and audio-visual recordings. For more detailed descriptions, see the series-level descriptions.

Note that there are a number of gaps in the coverage of the fonds. No records have been transferred from the Dean's office (series 1) for the period after 1984. 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).
