The Eva von Gencsy fonds includes the following series: alumni questionnaire (1991); newspaper articles (1950-2013); biographical information (1948-); records of the Hope and Wellness Centre; photographs (1948-1953); and obituaries (2013).
Fonds reflects Paul Moist’s career as a Canadian labour activist and longtime member and President of both CUPE Local 500 and CUPE National. The majority of the fonds is comprised of his speeches and presentation notes, and also includes personal and professional correspondence, administrative and organizational documents from CUPE, and personal research on the 1919 General Strike. The records are primarily textual but also include audio-visual material and ephemera such as buttons.
Fonds is arranged in 6 series: speeches and presentations; personal files; CUPE Convention files; CUPE internal files; audio/video and day planners; and 1919 General Strike research. The speeches and presentation series include the speeches and speaking notes Paul Moist used at conferences and meetings around Canada. There is also a box of day planners and calendars that Paul Moist used during his time in CUPE Local 500 and as CUPE National President. The box of CUPE internal files cover various CUPE internal documents and meeting notes. The personal files cover letters, correspondence, and news clippings from Paul Moist’s time with CUPE 500 and CUPE National. The 1919 General Strike series are all the files related to the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike that Paul Moist collected over the last 30 years.
Records primarily consist of meeting minutes, correspondence, project files, industry research, and copies of newsletters and periodicals related to the work of Manitoban architects. Fonds includes information about Winnipeg’s Metropolitan amalgamation, Winnipeg Art Gallery Competition, Canadian Museum for Human Rights, and the MAA’s connections to the University of Manitoba School of Architecture, and other projects. Some records identified as being created by the Manitoba Architects’ Wives Association.
Fonds contains newspaper clippings, project information, photographs and sketches related to Donahue’s professional work; also contains many personal images, largely as negatives. Digital copies of records are available.
This fonds contains master copies of approximately 80 oral history recordings, copied to compact disc, made by Louis Bird, an Omushkego (Swampy Cree) storyteller, as part of the Omushkego Oral History Project at the Centre for Rupert’s Land Studies (CRLS) (1999-2005). These CDs contain a subset of the stories that Bird first began to record in 1965 in an effort to preserve and maintain the history, language, and traditional knowledge of the Omushkego. They include a wide range of oral traditions and stories as told to him by Omushkego elders from his home community of Winisk, Ontario. They were recorded, digitized, and disseminated online to the public through the Our Voices website in collaboration with the CRLS in Winnipeg, assisted by a Canadian Heritage grant from the Canadian Culture On-line Program (CCOP) in 2003. These CDs are the University of Winnipeg Library’s backup copies to help maintain the Our Voices website. The fonds also contains two paper copies of the CD file list.
The fonds consists of an album comprised of photographs depicting B. Harold Stinson's time as a student at Wesley College, including athletic activities such as curling, soccer, track and field and hockey, and photographs of his personal life outside the University such as trips and home activities. The souvenirs within the album relate to the student activities in which Stinson participated including ticket stubs and programs.
The papers are divided into two series, including the manuscript for A History of Wesley College written by Cummings, and miscellaneous papers. The first series contains the handwritten manuscript--often written on the backs of meeting minutes and class lists--for Cummings history of Wesley College published in 1938. His manuscript details the history of the college from the 1880s until the 1930s. The second series consists of miscellaneous papers, including the draft of the table of contents for his book, and lists of award recipients.
