Scope and content

Series consists of records generated from Coupey’s work as an Instructor of English Literature, Canadian Literature, Composition and Creative Writing at Capilano College. Records include and are not limited to the following: correspondence, departmental records, VHS teaching materials, Art Advisory Committee records, greeting cards, ephemera, newspaper clippings, dispute information regarding Capilano University’s cuts to the Fine Arts program, contact information for the Capilano College Art Institute, memos regarding reading engagements, memoranda, applications, project proposals, list of expenses, Coupey’s CVs and correspondence for Paid Educational Leaves. Also included are correspondence, maps, memoranda, travel plans, Aichi Gakusen College information, photographs, travel and tourist guides, handwritten research notes, and itinerary for Coupey’s visit to Japan.

In 2003 just prior to Coupey's retirement, Coupey received a one month faculty exchange at Capilano College's sister school Aichi Gakusen College, Okazaki, Japan in the Aichi Prefecture. Aichi Gakusen, like Capilano College, is a coed liberal arts college situated in Aichi, Japan. One of the College's goals is to offer a faculty exchange to Capilano instructors to pursue their professional development projects as they relate to Japan. As part of the Faculty exchange, Capilano College faculty are to provide lectures, have office hours available to students and assist with orientation of Aichi Gakusen students, who may eventually attend Capilano College. While at Aichi, Coupey researched calligraphy from the Kamakura period, 14th to 16th C. During his stay, Coupey was fortunate to attend three major exhibitions of Kamakura period work in Kyoto, which provided in-depth research for his Faculty Exchange.

Restrictions on access

The original arranging archivist expressed concerns over files that still contain personal information, although in some instances the age of the records call into question the validity of such concerns. Records will need to be reviewed and possibly redacted by the Archivist before access is granted to researchers.
