Name of creator
George Brockwell King (1879-1956) was a professor at United College in Winnipeg from 1928 until his retirement in 1947, and served as Dean of the theology department from 1938 to 1945.
The University of Winnipeg Archives acquired the papers in 1982.
Scope and content
The papers consist of correspondence related to King’s work as Dean of theology at United College and are arranged into 5 series. The first series consists of general administrative correspondence from 1938 to 1944, and includes outgoing correspondence arranged chronologically, and incoming correspondence arranged alphabetically. The content of the correspondence varies, but includes scholarship information, discussion on course requirements, organizing summer school, committee works, information about missionary work from the United Church of Canada, the Student Christian Movement, and correspondence from other colleges, universities and seminaries. The majority of correspondence was received from the United Church and is related to education and missionary work. The second series consists of incoming correspondence related to students from 1938-1944 and is arranged alphabetically. The correspondence was predominately sent to King from the United Church and colleges and universities across North America. It predominately concerns the welfare and degree requirements of students and prospective students. The third series includes outgoing correspondence concerning students from 1937 to 1944 and is arranged chronologically. Often the correspondence was sent directly to students, and discussed admittance, scholarships, grades and the Second World War. The fourth series contains a myriad of incoming and outgoing correspondence roughly arranged into faculty, business and personal from 1939 to 1944. The correspondence largely relates to King’s work as Dean of theology and the administration of the department. The fifth series contains miscellaneous correspondence and also relates directly to King’s administrative and academic work as Dean.
