St. Ann's Academy (Victoria, B.C.) fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1858-1975

The fonds consists of textual records of the St. Ann's Academy local house, including four sous-fonds. The first two belong to the Superior and the Bursar; the third was generated by the Commercial Department of the school; and the fourth belongs to the Treasurer who kept the accounts of the St. Ann's Secondary School next door to the Academy in the 1960s and 1970s. Each of these officers maintained records in the course of their respective duties until the Academy and secondary school were finally closed and all activities ceased by 1975. Given that the primary function of this local house was education, the fonds consists mainly of school records as well as some house accounts, and other records. The school records and even general house records tend to follow the pattern of the school year from August/September to June/July. Records divide into series and sometimes subseries of files. They include account books known by their French name comptes-rendus, student registers, receipts and expenses, boarders' accounts, commercial accounts, day scholar accounts, payroll ledgers, council minutes, names and addresses of students, alumni records, and other miscellaneous material.

Charles S. Brant fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1948-[200-?], predominant 1948-1950

Fonds documents Brant’s pre-doctoral research in Burma. As a Fulbright scholar working with the United States Educational Foundation, Brant submitted quarterly reports to the foundation detailing his arrival and adjustment to life in Burma, as well as his sociological research in the community of Tadagale and other areas of the country. Brant also provided the U.S. Foreign Service with his observations of life in the Shan States, where Brant and his wife first lived when they arrived in Burma in 1949. After returning to the United States in 1950, Brant published articles on the research he completed while in Burma. Records in this series include academic and government reports; articles; Brant’s curriculum vitae; a digitized slide show and 8 mm movie; a grant application; notes; and photographic negatives and prints. It is likely that most of the photographs were taken by Jane Brant, but these are not identified.
