Name of creator
Ed Kleiman graduated from the University of Manitoba in 1953. Six years later he received an M.A. from the University of Toronto with Northrop Frye as his thesis supervisor. In 1961, he returned to Winnipeg and started as a lecturer with the English Department of the University of Manitoba. He was an Associate Professor at the time of his retirement in 1996. Beyond his academic career, Kleiman found time to write three books of short stories and numerous articles. His first book, The Immortals, published by Newest Press in 1980, delves into the lives of families living in Winnipeg's ethnic and culturally diverse North End. A New-Found Ecstasy was published eight years later by Newest Press and, in 1998, The World Beaters was published by Thistledown Press.
The fonds was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by Ed Kleiman in 2000.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of personal correspondence, including letters from friends Adele Wiseman, James Reaney, and Fredelle Maynard. Also included in the fonds are various drafts of Kleiman's manuscripts and articles and his teaching notes accrued over his thirty-seven year career.
