Canadian International Air Show fonds

  • ON00421 RG 9
  • Fonds
  • 1928-2004, predominant 1969-1993

The Canadian International Air Show fonds reflects the functions of the CIAS Executive Committee as promoters and organizers of entertaining and informative aerial displays in 20th century Toronto on a national and international level.

The records are arranged and described at the series level, and each series has an accompanying file list. The fonds consists of eight series: Correspondence (RG 9-0-1), Subject files (RG 9-0-2), Information kits (RG 9-0-3), Meeting minutes (RG 9-0-4), Corporate (RG 9-0-5), Executive Squadron (RG 9-0-6), Photographs and printed material (RG 9-0-7), and Sound and moving images (RG 9-0-8).

Textual records in the fonds consist of correspondence, reports, surveys, promotional material, flight schedules, meeting minutes, and policies related to the CIAS Executive Committee, aviation performers, air show guests and sponsors, and CNE visitors. Graphic and printed materials include photographs of aircraft and performers, photographs of CIAS functions, and informational pamphlets.

Few documents exist for the years 1928-1930, 1956, 1967, and 1968. No records exist for the years 1931-1955, and 1957-1966. When the CIAS became autonomous in 1996, they retained their administrative and operational records from 1994 and 1995. Those records, and any new records created after that date, are the property of the CIAS and are stored in the Air Show offices or in an off-site storage facility. As a result, no further accumulations of records are expected for RG9.

Note: CIAS programmes can be found in series 4 of C 31, Exhibition Place Printed Material Collection.

Sports Department fonds

  • ON00421 RG 7
  • Fonds
  • 1879-1981, predominant 1962-1980

The fonds consists of correspondence, memoranda, minutes of meetings, reports, proposals, telegrams, entry forms, programmes, and work orders concerning the annual production of the CNE sports programme and the year-round administration of the stadium and other CNE sports facilities. The materials also include lists and information regarding competitors, results of competitions, press releases sent out by the Sports Department during the CNE, news clippings, the research material and manuscript of the book "Fair Sport", maps of waterfront competition layouts, photographs, CNE ephemera, artifacts, primarily, crests, badges and ribbons awarded to competitors, and scrapbooks containing newspaper clippings of CNE sporting events.

The fonds is organized into eight series: Sports Managers Files - George N. Duthie, RG 7-0-1; Sports Managers Files - Gordon R. Walker, RG 7-0-2; Sports Managers Files - Douglas J. Gerrard, RG 7-0-3; Sports Managers Files - Patrick M. Martin, RG 7-0-4; Sports Coordinators Files, RG 7-0-5; Sport Administration Files - Bill Leveridge, RG 7-0-6; Waterfront Sports Maps, RG 7-0-7; Sports Scrapbooks, RG 7-0-8.

Series RG 7-0-2 is further arranged into sub-series, as is series RG 7-0-6. The original order in which the files were maintained has been preserved, except in the case of series RG 7-0-7 in which no discernible original order existed. In this case, a logical arrangement was imposed on the maps comprising the series.

George Duthie's records prior to 1962 are missing with the exception of the marathon or Pro-Swim records, which cover 1927 to 1963. His records from 1964 until his death in 1968 are also missing. The CNE has no accessions for Kenneth Twigg, but some of his records can be found in the Sports Coordinators files and the files of Gordon Walker, especially in the sub-series containing Walker's Stadium files.

Gordon Walker resigned in early 1977 and Doug Gerrard was not appointed until June 20, 1977. Gerrard appears to have used Walker's files for the brief period spanning his appointment to the end of the 1977 CNE. As a result, Walker's materials also contain some of Gerrard's records.

Office of the Corporate Secretary fonds

  • ON00421 RG 3
  • Fonds
  • 1919-1987

The records of the Office of the Corporate Secretary are arranged and described at the series and sub-series levels and consist of textual and photographic material . The majority of photographs are found in files that also contain textual material. File lists have been provided for each series and sub-series. A photograph list also exists.

No records exist for the Secretary's Office between the years 1879 to 1918. Records for the years 1919 to 1930 consist of only a few files. Therefore the majority of records are for the period 1930-1985. Because the functions and duties of the Secretary, Secretary-Treasurer, and Corporate Secretary were virtually identical, and the records demonstrate this continuity, they have been arranged and described as one fonds. Further, the current title of Corporate Secretary has been chosen to describe the fond as a whole.

Bone Family fonds

  • ON00421 MG 7

  • 1932-1993

The records comprising the Bone Family fonds, MG 7, are arranged and described at the series and sub-series levels and consist of 15 cm of material including prize ribbons, badges, printed material, correspondence, certificates, photographs, and a commemorative sign. The records document the involvement of Percy Bone and W. Arthur Bone in the Canadian National Exhibition Association and their ties with the Horticultural programme of the annual CNE.

Within the Percy Bone sous-fonds, there are four series: Prize Ribbons, MG 7-1-1; CNE Files, MG 7-1-2; Certificates, MG 7-1-3; Badges, MG 7-1-4. Comprising the W. Arthur Bone sous-fonds are three series: CNE Files, MG 7-2-1; CNE Committee Badges, MG 7-2-2; Tree Planting Sign, MG 7-2-3. A logical arrangement has been imposed on the material as it lacked any discernible original order.

Of special interest are the badges received by Percy Bone as a Director of the CNE and those acquired as a member of the CNE's Women's Committee. Also significant are the photographs and commemorative sign given to Arthur Bone as keepsakes of the 1973 tree planting ceremony in memory of Percy Bone.

Trade & Consumer Shows photograph collection

  • ON00421 C 32
  • Collection
  • 1971-1978

The collection consists of photographic negatives and transparencies documenting various trade shows held at Exhibition Place and associated events held at other locations, such as publicity photo shoots and galas. Included are images of the Boat Show, the Canadian National Business Show, the Flower Show, the National Home Show, the International Electric and Electronic Conference and Exposition, the Manufacturers’ Opportunity Show, the Canadian National Pool and Patio Show, and the Sportsmen Show. Photographs depict crowds walking through the shows; performances, ceremonies and competitions that were held at the shows; models and notable personalities; exhibitor booths; show signs displayed on the exterior of the buildings where the shows were held; and various displays of items and events relevant to each show. Also included are portraits of William Mallatratt (Chief General Manager of Exhibition Place from 1976-1981), his house and his retirement party (before he became Chief General Manager), which took place during the Home Show of 1976.

Photographs were arranged by the creator alphabetically by show name. This arrangement was maintained and, where necessary, some refiling was done. The files in this collection consist of negatives and transparencies that were kept together in labelled envelopes containing between 2 and 200 photographs. This file structure has been kept, although the negatives and transparencies have been rehoused in new envelopes. The titles written on the original envelopes have been transcribed and recorded in a note in each file’s description; however, descriptive titles have been supplied as the file titles if the original titles were not complete or correct. Many photographs are labelled with numbers used by the creator to maintain control over the negatives. These creator numbers, when they exist, have been recorded in the alpha-numeric designations note for each file.
