  • 1974 - 2019

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.

Schneider/Snyder Family sous-fonds

The Schneider/Snyder Family sous-fonds consists mainly of handwritten and typed correspondence between Fritz and Thilde Schneider from 1925 to 1942. The subject matter of the early letters focuses on everyday happenings while the pair were living and studying in different areas of Germany. Later correspondence took place while Thilde was residing on the Society Farm in Little Britain, Manitoba and Fritz was in Germany on business. Finally, letters from 1939-1942 discuss Fritz's internment at the Kananaskis Internment Camp in Alberta and the hearings for his eventual release. Also included in the sous-fonds are various other documents: correspondence from Thilde's father to herself and her family, and from Fritz Schneider to businesses and government organizations as part of his work on the Society Farm; photos of and brochures for farm equipment; and original school records and diplomas for Thilde from 1915 to 1920 and for Fritz Schneider from 1919.
