Name of creator
Dr. M. Kaye Kerr received her B.A. in Zoology and her M.A. and Ph.D. in Child Development, all from the University of Minnesota. Her teaching career also began there as an Instructor, 1964-1967. Afterwards she worked as a psychologist in a variety of international institutions until coming to the University of Winnipeg as a Lecturer in Psychology in 1969. In 1970 she was appointed Coordinator of the Developmental Studies program, a position she remained in until 1989. She was later made Director of that program from 1992-1998. In that position, she initiated the University's Child Studies Centre in 1971 and its Child Care Training Program starting in 1983. Dr. Kerr retired from the University of Winnipeg in 2001.
The records in this fonds were kept privately by Dr. Kerr and transferred to the University of Winnipeg Archives in 2017.
Scope and content
Fonds reflects two key facets of Dr. Kerr’s career with the University of Winnipeg, and is divided into two corresponding series. First is her role in the Faculty Association’s Committee on the Status of Women, a body that examined gendered discrimination, particularly in terms of salary, among the University’s faculty and staff. The second is her involvement in the fields of childhood psychology and child care: both her administrative and scholarly activities through the University of Winnipeg’s Developmental Studies program, as well as her participation on government committees such as the Child Care Education Program Approval Committee. Fonds is divided into two series that correspond to these two facets.
The first series is comprised primarily of records from the surveys conducted by the Committee on the Status of Women, including data and the compilations and reports generated therewith. It also includes some research materials related to the status of women. The second series is comprised of correspondence, records of meetings, and reports, primarily generated by the University of Winnipeg Department of Psychology and Senate and the Manitoba Department of Education. Also includes some research materials related to child psychology and child care.
