Fonds Roger St-Louis

  • CA ON00159 P041
  • Fonds
  • 1992-1997

Le fonds Roger St-Louis est composé surtout de documents témoignant de sa participation au sein du conseil admisitratif du Collège Boréal. Les procès-verbaux et documents afférents des différents conseils et comités, les quelques croquis pour des soumissions de construction, les rapports, et des transcriptions de discussions téléphoniques et autres types de conversations, nous renseignent plus particulièrement sur les débuts du Collège Boréal, collège francophone ayant des campus satellites dans le nord de l'Ontario. Les procès-verbaux du conseil d'administration, sont souvent annotés et les dossiers contiennent des données sur l'enseignement collégial en Ontario français. Une des particularités des documents de ce fonds d'archives est que, dû à la surdité de monsieur St-Louis, de nombreuses conversations et discussions ont été transcrites en mode simultanée afin de permettre une compréhension et une participation aux discussions.

Michael Gallagher fonds

  • CA ON00159 P222
  • Fonds
  • n.d.; 1967-2018 (predominant 1975-1985)

Fonds Michael Gallagher consists of graphic material, textual records, sound recordings, video recordings and books documenting Michael Gallagher’s professional career. The majority of the materials are derived from Gallagher’s work for CANO musique, predominantly between the years 1975 to 1985, and reflect the breadth of the organization’s objectives, as well as Gallagher’s many roles within it. The fonds also contains some materials related to Gallagher’s time spent as a member of the Coopérative des artistes du Nouvel-Ontario (C.A.N.O.) in the years prior to CANO musique, as well as several graphic design projects undertaken after CANO musique dissolved.

The graphic materials in the fonds represent a significant body of work created by Michael Gallagher, mostly as photographer and artistic director of CANO musique. Photographic materials include images for CANO album covers, publicity photos of the band, shots of CANO in concert, as well as individual members of the band. Not only do these images show the change in members over time, they also document some of the recording studios and concert venues CANO played throughout the years. The fonds also contains numerous mock-ups for CANO albums, promotional materials, and posters, as well as original artwork of logos, reflecting the various steps in Gallagher’s creative process. Posters promoting CANO albums and specific concerts are also included. Additional visual concepts and designs created by Michael Gallagher for other Sudbury organizations are included in the fonds as well, such as posters, promotional material, and mock-ups for La nuit sur l’étang, Northern Lights Festival Boréal, and Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario (among others).

In addition to graphic materials, the fonds also contains a number of textual records primarily related to CANO musique including correspondence to and from Michael Gallagher about the band, as well as records documenting the band’s history and lyrics, available in both English and French, showing the pride they took in reaching out to their fans in both official languages. Also included are a selection of Gallagher’s day planners, and administrative documents related to his role in CANO such as contracts and financial reports, through which a sense of CANO’s cooperative roots can be gleaned, as they outline stipulations such as equal sharing among members. Complementing these records is a thorough collection of newspaper and magazine clippings which provide a wealth of information about the band, as well as their reception throughout Canada and the United States.

The fonds also contains several other types of records, including 14 books, many of which are limited editions and contain personal inscriptions, four CANO 45 rpm singles, an English version of the album Au nord de notre vie, and a VHS tape of the National Film Board of Canada’s documentary CANO, Notes sur une expérience collective. These records further serve to position Michael Gallagher within the extremely active network of Franco-Ontarian authors and artists in Northern Ontario during the 1970s and 80s, as well as highlight CANO’s prominent place within that community.


John Doerr fonds

  • CA ON00159 P221
  • Fonds
  • 1973-2018

The John Doerr fonds documents Doerr’s professional life as a musician, composer, music producer, and administrator. The completeness of the files not only highlights Doerr's accomplishments and activities, but they also depict the path of the group CANO musique.

Composed of the files of the various administrators of CANO musique, namely John Doerr, André Paiement, and Gary McGroarty, the files cover the legal aspect of managing a music group and its financial administration. The files thus deal with promotion, production of concerts and LPs, and the creation of music and lyrics, and range from Doerr’s early involvement with the group CANO musique to the group’s dissolution and the subsequent founding of Majoma Music.

The John Doerr fonds not only attests to Doerr’s different roles, creations, and achievements within CANO musique but it also provides an overview of the different administrative and managerial aspects of a music group during the time period of 1975 to 1985. Moreover, the fonds documents the different processes, procedures, and interactions with records companies, as well as marketing and promotional strategies in those years.

John Doerr’s role as administrator of CANO’s financial records is well documented in the fonds. Doerr took over the responsibility of the accounts after André Paiement’s passing, at which time the records of 1975-1978 were transferred to him.

The financial records consist mostly of bank statements, budgets, expenditures, expenses and incomes, correspondence, and monthly royalty statements. The files provide insight into the operating cost for concerts and touring, as well as the cost associated with activities such as recording, rehearsals, buying instruments, and insurance payments. The files also attest to group’s organising and functioning as a cooperative. While the monthly statements for the royalties list each song and the amount received for each, it also indicates the popularity of their songs in a specific time frame. Some of the correspondence informs us on the contracts and agreements with recording companies, touring and festival organisations and on applications/bids to be part of festivals like the Ontario Bicentennial tour or representing Canada in Japan. It also attests to bids for different services they offered like staging, sound equipment, and music production.

The creation aspect is documented by the music scores, lyrics and correspondence which inform us more specifically on John Doerr as a musician, composer and producer. Indeed, music scores of many of the CANO songs – some with notations – provide insights on the process of collective creation of the music and lyrics and also on the translation of the lyrics. While some music scores are specifically for the parts of bass guitar, some are film scores. Doerr and Aymar composed music and produced the scores for films, as well as theme songs for programs like Légalement parlant or Great Movies (CityTV). A rough draft of video shooting images with notes to synchronize the music depicts part of the process for this type of composition. Also included are some texts of introductions of members of the group used during concerts, with notations on music to be played, the mood, and even the staging of the musicians. The fonds also contains some of Doerr’s diaries with notes on the rehearsals, tours and daily activities.

Many files document projects undertaken by the group after their dissolution. While not all projects were carried out, the fonds contains extensive documentation and correspondence on certain projects, such as agreements for the production of the CANO album The Millennium Collection: The Best of/Les Meilleurs Succès CANO, and the different agreements with all the partners in the realization of the project. Transcriptions of interviews with some of the members of CANO who talk of their time with the group and different events can also be found in the files on “CANO project,” as well as correspondence from fans, and pictures taken by fans during CANO concerts.

The fonds also contains Gary McGroarty’s files, who was the manager of the group. He turned these files over to John Doerr when he left the group. These files consist mostly of contracts with recording companies, the legal documents on the ownership of copyright for CANO songs and also for the different concerts. Membership, registration, payments made to different associations and unions as well as correspondence with these organizations are also found within those files. Some scheduling for rehearsals and traveling are also included. Marketing and promotional materials consisting of correspondence, opinions sent to specialized magazines, newspapers, press kits and also promotional materials such as cards, posters, letterhead with the official CANO logo illustrate some of the different marketing strategies used by the group.


Institute of Northern Ontario Research and Development fonds

  • CA ON00159 P213
  • Fonds
  • 1940-2015 (predominant 1986-2014)

The Institute of Northern Ontario Research and Development (INORD) fonds attests to the role it played in promoting interdisciplinary research, facilitating the diffusion of the results, as well as partnering with communities in Northern Ontario.

Consisting of minutes, annual reports, evaluations of projects submitted for grants, and correspondence with partners, communities and organizations, the records provide an insight on the range of the Institute’s administrative activities. The annual reports submitted to Senate inform us of recently completed as well as ongoing projects, while the correspondence documents the networking with not only communities of Northern Ontario but also with researchers and organizations involved and/or interested in different issues in the region.

Many files are specific to projects led by INORD and inform us of the management of the project(s) but also contain original records created throughout the course of the project, and which document the various steps and phases. For example, the files of the project on land use in Temagami consist of documentation, notes, publicity to promote the public hearings, recordings of many of the presentations, reports, and administrative management of the project.

The Elliot Lake Tracking Study is also well documented. Indeed the files document the different aspects of the research, from the hiring of personnel, payments, management of the grants, conducting interviews, and presentations to the community, to the different reports and the final report.

One important role and objective of the Institute was to promote the diffusion of the research results. Files attesting to conferences and symposia, as well as the various publications are well documented. Many electronic files are of the manuscripts of books published by researchers involved with INORD or who were funded by the Institute. For some of the manuscripts there are original photographs and different versions of the text with annotations. Files attesting to the promotion of interdisciplinary research are also included in the fonds. Leaflets, posters, and press releases promoting the launch of books like Boom Town Blues or conferences such as “Changing Lives: Women and the Northern Ontario Experience" can be found in the fonds, as well as publications of the proceedings of the conferences.

While there are some gaps, especially for the last years INORD was active, correspondence and reports for the latter years attest to the different activities of INORD, its changes in terms of activity area, and also its way of communicating and connecting with the communities of Northern Ontario. The collection and input of data and statistics of interest to the region into a database, newsletters, and the development of a website are among the activities and realizations of INORD that are well documented.


William G. (Reindeer) Walton fonds

  • CA ON00159 P205
  • Fonds
  • [ca. 1892-2015] (originals 1892-1947)

The William G. (Reindeer) Walton fonds consists mostly of his personal correspondence, reports, photographs, and of books he helped translate into Cree and Inuktitut. The documents attest to Walton’s missionary work and his relentless dedication and hard work to get the governments and the population in general interested in the conditions of life of the population of the James Bay and Hudson Bay area.

There is an extensive series of correspondence with Walton’s wife Daisy (née Spencer) and his children. In the letters to his fiancée there are some ‘courtship letters’ but he also reports of his daily activities at the mission or when travelling in the diocese. Later letters describe the life of the people and the missions of Kuujjuarapik and Whapmagoostui* (previously known as Great Whale River) and Fort George as well as his different meetings and activities while in England. The correspondence with his children is more on their activities at the school they are attending in Ontario or in England.

While the correspondence with family and friends is more personal, the correspondence with HBC managers reports on the different posts, hunting, incidents and life at the post. Some of the correspondence with the Bishop of Moosonee and or with different missionaries and the Treasurer of the diocese, concerns the missionary work at different missions.

Reports, briefs, correspondence with the government and with different organizations address the life and conditions of the communities of the James Bay area and the many challenges the Indigenous Peoples were facing. The need for care, food and his project of introducing reindeers into the region is well represented and documented. Correspondence with American groups and researchers on the integration of reindeer in Alaska, or with different government agents attest to all his research and efforts on this matter.

The lantern slides and images depict the culture, way of life, and landscapes of the area, as well as some of the starvation of the early 1900’s in Indigenous communities of the James Bay and Hudson Bay area.

*Kuujjuarapik is the Inuk name for Great Whale River and Whapmagoostui is the Cree name for Great Whale River.
