Michael Bullock fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1925 - 2006

The fonds consists of a variety of materials, but the focus is the creative writing of Michael Bullock, in many genres. Represented in collections are prose and poetry, both published and unpublished, along with hundreds of individual works, covering not only poetry and prose poems, but academic essays, autobiographical accounts, and plays, as well as a prodigious amount of notes. The fonds also contains material relating to Bullock's work as a translator, and includes a variety of genres translated into English from the original French, German, or Italian. The fonds also includes correspondence of both a professional and personal nature. Dating from 1935, the correspondence illustrates well the business life of a professional writer, yet also contains a wealth of personal correspondence that helps to solidify Bullock's stature as a writer both locally and internationally. Interesting figures such as Marcel Bealu, Max Frisch, and Joy Kogawa are intermingled with less well-known artists, friends, and family in the correspondence, and provide valuable commentary, over nearly 70 years, into the creative path chosen by Bullock. The fonds consists of 20 series and a single sub-series: Assorted Poems, Collected Poems, Prose (including Lotte Bullock Sub-Series), Plays, Essays and Criticism, Artwork, Works in Translation, Correspondence, Notes, Reviews, Melmoth Vancouver, Photographs, Audiotape Recordings, Diaries Series, Biographical Notes, Conferences, Lectures, and Readings, Promotional Material, Financial Records, Published Material, and Miscellaneous.

Division of Plant Science fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1954-1965

Fonds consists of 10 volumes of purchase requisitions from 1954 to 1958, and a central office correspondence series from 1955 to 1965. The correspondence is informally arranged within a classification system that was inconsistently applied and developed until 1964. Two reference sheets for the subject classification system remain for 1956 and 1963 and are included in the first file for each of those two years. Many of the headings reflect the categories used by the Department of Agronomy. Intermingled with the files of the division are some of the faculty papers of V.C. Brink, the chair of the division. In 1964, the entire system appears to have broken down. From 1964 to 1970 all the division correspondence files were stored in unlabelled file folders the vast majority of which exhibited no internal coherence. Because of the presence of Brink's faculty papers in the files, and because of the absence of the division's classification system, the records from 1964 to 1970 have been arranged and described with Brink's personal papers. For a complete understanding of the functions and activities of the division, these records must also be consulted.
