W. D. Valgardson fonds

  • CA UWA 01.007
  • Fonds
  • 1961 - 1999

Fonds reflects Valgardson’s career as a writer of fiction and non-fiction and a teacher of writing, and the records primarily illustrate his process of revising a work for publication and adaptation from one genre to another – from a short story to a radio play, for example. Most of the records are drafts, hand- or type-written, used for review and to make editing notes, accompanied by ancillary research or correspondence with publishers, reviewers, or the public. A portion of the records relate to his involvement in lecture series, workshops, and writing associations such as the Canadian Authors Association; and some records are comprised of articles, taken from newspapers and serials, and pamphlets, brochures, and bulletins, related to his own career, activities, and interests. Included in the fonds is a number of serial publications in which Valgardson’s writing was published, in some cases a piece not published elsewhere and for which no other record appears in the fonds. The records are arranged broadly by publication – the drafts of each piece and its accompanying material are contiguous, and the titles that went into an anthology are grouped together – but do not, on the whole, follow any particular chronological or categorical sequence. The fonds is arranged into boxes that reflect only spatial division, and files that reflect both item- and small series-level divisions.

University Relations Communications Photographs

  • CA UWA 03.008, 04.008, 05.005
  • Fonds
  • 1894 - 2002

Fonds consists of images collected or produced by the Media Department and the University Relations Department (under its various appellations: please see Administrative History) that document the institutional life and history of the University of Winnipeg, United College, and Wesley College. This account includes the occupations and lifestyles of University faculty, staff, students, alumni, and guests, acting in formal and informal contexts; construction and external or internal architectural features of campus buildings; and the official and unofficial activities of various administrative and academic bodies within the University. The Media Department’s photographer Peter Tittenberger created many of the images during his employment, 1979-1995; outside photographers are credited as well. The images were used as documentation of these events and functions, as well as in various print and radio media publicizing and advertising the University to potential and current students, alumni, donors, and the public. The images encompass the years 1894-2002, the majority of which cover the latter half of the 20th century; the vast majority of the images were taken from the University of Winnipeg campus, with a small number from other locations in Winnipeg. They are organized broadly by the institutional function or body documented, or by the role of the people featured in the images: they form nine series, with a tenth comprised of images which could not be clearly enough identified to sort into other subjects. Approximately three quarters of the fonds are colour or black & white prints, with the other quarter as slides.
