Alcuin Society fonds

  • CA UBCSP RBSC-ARC-1001
  • Fonds
  • 1965 - 2009

The Alcuin Society Fonds reflects the activities of the society since its creation in 1965. The series consists predominantly of textual records, including administrative records, financial records, reports, correspondence, newsletters and promotional material. Also included are photographs, published material, brochures, and memorabilia. Correspondence is predominant throughout the fonds and in each series it is interfiled with related records.

The fonds consists of 8 series and 6 sub-series spanning the years 1965-2009 and measures 5.07 m in its entirety. The records were received by the Rare Books and Special Collections Department in 3 accessions. The first accession was received, arranged and described in 1981.

The second and third accruals were received July 2008 and June 2009 and processed June-August 2009. The original finding aid (1981), which described the first accession, was revised to incorporate the material in the second and third accruals.

For the second and third accrual, original order has been maintained in the physical arrangement. The intellectual arrangement, as reflected in the file list, has been imposed. Many items belonging to the same series are physically stored separately because the initial accession was processed prior to the receipt of the second and third accruals.
