Benjamin B. Janz (1877-1964) fonds

  • CA CMBS CMBS Personal Papers
  • Fonds
  • 1921-1965

The Benjamin B. Janz fonds was created as a result of his interest and active participation in the emigration of the Mennonites from Russia to Canada in 1923 and 1924, alternative service, church and conference work and committees, and the Mennonite Central Committee. It consists of photocopied materials, original correspondence, copies of letters, conference or committee minutes, and other records. Some of the people who wrote, or to whom Janz wrote, are A.A. Friesen (Mennonite Land Settlement Board), David Toews( Canadian Mennonite Board of Colonization), C.F. Klassen (All-Russian Mennonite Agricultural Society), B.H. Unruh (Study Commission), A.J. Fast (working with B.H. Unruh), Jacob Janz (All-Russian Mennonite Congress), Alvin J. Miller (Mennonite Central Committee), and Orie O. Miller (Mennonite Central Committee). The number of documents and their organization is amazing, when we remember that Janz was a prairie farmer and pastor in the first half of the twentieth century, likely without the aid of a secretary and good office equipment. Most of the letters are typed and bound in duotang binders.
