Department of Political Science, Sociology and Anthropology collection (SFU Archives collector)

  • F-150
  • Collection
  • 1967 - 2002

The Political Science, Sociology and Anthropology (PSA) Department was established in 1965 as one of the original departments at SFU. It marked a significant academic innovation in that it united three separate disciplines under one head—the distinguished Marxist scholar Tom Bottomore. By the late 1960s, Bottomore had returned to England, and the department entered a period of scholarly and administrative turmoil. The crisis culminated in the Department being placed under trusteeship by the University administration and eight faculty members going on strike.

The collection consists of various files collected over the years by the staff of the University Archives to assist history students and other researchers. Includes press releases, reports, publications and other documents.

Women's Bookstore collection

  • F-111
  • Collection
  • 1937 - 2018, predominant 1937-1997

The Women's Bookstore collection consists of materials relating to the operation of several Vancouver women's organizations and reflects the issues that dominated the women's movement throughout the 1970s. Consistent with the community based nature of women's movements during this period, the scope and content of the collection reflects the diversity common to a phenomenon rather than the administrative and subject coherence found in records generated by a single organization. As such, the collection as whole gains its coherence due primarily to the interdependence rather than independence of the individual items to one another. This also applies to the records generated by autonomous organizations in the collection. While the different organizations should be regarded as distinct, a good deal of the records concern the communication between various organizations and women's groups across the country or identify issues of concern to a broad range of organizations. Thus, the collection as whole should be regarded as a record of a dynamic process in which a common ideology served to unify the aims of distinctive organizations, persons, and subjects.

The collection is comprised of the records of the Women's Bookstore, Women's Caucus, A Woman's Place, Transition House, the British Columbia Federation of Women and the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery. Includes constitutions, minutes, reports, correspondence, position papers, and sound recordings. Also includes newsletters from women's centres across British Columbia and Canada, subject files, and an assortment of feminist publications.

Kenneth Strand interview collection (Gordon Hardy collector)

  • F-138
  • Collection
  • 1977

Collection consists of an interview (audio recording and transcript) of Dr. Kenneth Strand by Gordon Hardy.

Strand was Acting President of Simon Fraser University from August 1968 to September 1969, and was President of the University from September 8, 1969 to September 1974. Gordon Hardy is a former student of Simon Fraser University. Mr. Hardy first interviewed Dr. Strand for the "The Peak" when Dr. Strand was named Acting President in 1968. The present interview was conducted in 1977 for the SFU Alumni Magazine, "Afterthoughts."

The interview is on Side A of the cassette tape. It is approximately 45 minutes long. Unfortunately the interview ends rather abruptly in mid-sentence, because the tape ended. Side B of the tape contains a short (about 10 minutes) interview of Gordon Hardy by the Library Assistant for Archives. This interview provides some background on Mr. Hardy's interview with Dr. Strand. Both interviews were conducted in offices, and consequently the background noise and interruptions detract from the interview.

The transcript of the interview is available.

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. Activities and topics documented include the establishment, organization, and operation of the Institute (including its physical space); budget and funding; projects, programs, and agreements; IFA publications and publicity; and student, staff, and IFA member relations. 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.
