- This illustrated, indexed reference guide describes the extensive archives, manuscripts, photographs, drawings, sound recordings, and letters held by the archives at York University. Each description includes a history of the creator, notes on the specific contents of the collections (including major subjects and groups involved), and the extent of material held by the archives. York’s rich collections include, among others, the archives of philosophers, writers, artists, filmmakers, dancers, playwrights, and the records of many community-based organizations. The archives of Canadian writer Margaret Laurence, the photographic morgue of the Toronto Telegram newspaper, the records of the Stop Spadina Save Our City Coordinating Committee, as well as the archives of York’s distinguished academic staff and of its pioneering academic programs are just a sample of the variety of materials in the archives. This is an important reference tool for public and academic library collections.
