Sisters of St. Ann, St. Joseph's Province, Provincial Administration fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1858-1995

The fonds consists of seven sous-fonds of textual records, some photographs, and an album of the Provincial Administration of St. Joseph's Province. These sous-fonds belong to: the Provincial Superior, Provincial Bursar, Provincial Prefect of Studies, Prefect of Music, Mistress of Novices, Directress of Juniorate, and Provincial Archivist. All these officers maintained their own offices and records at St. Ann's Academy (Victoria) until its closure in 1973. Today, only the Provincial Superior, Provincial Bursar, and Provincial Archivist maintain active file systems. Recording activities, transactions, and persons has always been a policy with the Sisters of St. Ann and these are to be found in ledgers, registers, and forms throughout the fonds, particularly in the context of schools. There are files of correspondence relating to certain subjects or activities, reports and copies of reports made to counterparts in the General Administration and vice versa, minutes of meetings, chronicles (house journals), journals of official visitations, school records, records of sisters' studies, and a great deal of miscellaneous reference, "orphaned", or ephemeral material. The records span the years 1858 to 1995 with the bulk of it being generated between 1900 and 1990. The dates prior to the Province's formation in 1892 can be explained by predecessor bodies, most notably the Vicariate which performed a number of the Province's current functions and whose records were absorbed by the Provincial Administration.
