One year later she earned a Master's Degree from the same university. Dr. Zaborszky received her Ph.D. from the University of London in the United Kingdom. After teaching at Concordia University and the University of Toronto, she began teaching at Laurentian University in 1970. Throughout her professional career, the focus of her interest was Women's Literature of the Victorian and Romantic periods. Dr. Zaborszky was a founding member of the Feminist Party of Canada (FPC). Her work for FPC included presenting speeches and writing articles regarding feminist organizations. She passed away on March 5, 1991. A Memorial Scholarship in her name was founded by Laurentian University in the same year.

    This fonds consists of correspondence, notes, speeches, articles, printed material and newspaper clippings. The correspondence is mainly with members of the Feminist Party of Canada (FPC).
