The Bert Weir and Family fonds, consisting of correspondence, reports, newspaper clippings, sketches and publications, depicts Bert Weir’s professional, artistic and personal life. The documents depict his activities and achievements as a painter, sculptor, environmental activist and teacher. Bert’s life as a teacher and youth mentor is outlined through handwritten notes, photos, e-mail messages and newspaper clippings. These items document the many summer studios that he directed at his home in McKellar, as well as art programs in Southern Ontario in which he was involved. The documents also illustrate his time teaching art to underprivileged students in Knoxville, Tennessee (SSSP Knoxville Team), as well as his time as the art teacher for W.D Lowe Vocational in Windsor, Ontario. Photos, maps and journal entries outline personal interests of Weir. Maps with outlined routes give insight into the canoe trips that Weir undertook in such places as Algonquin Park and Quetico. Included as well are Weir’s sketches, documents relating to his construction projects and social activism. Correspondence, legal documents, and account books detail the business side of Weir’s activities. Weir and his first wife opened and ran Loon Studio, where they offered art courses. The fonds also includes documents relating to Elena’s work, as she was an accomplished painter and sculptor in her own right. Original sketches, books, photos and thumbnails relating to personal matters reflect the everyday life of Bert Weir and his family. Insight into his family life is provided by Weir family creations. Though there are no original paintings included in the fonds, promotional work, such as fliers and posters for exhibitions, and books on his work, attest to his acclaimed stature as an artist, and illustrates the evolution of his art. Correspondence with former students, other artists and owners of art galleries provide an insight in Weir’s artistic world and his friendships.

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.

Sister Cathleen Flynn series
CA ON00279 F01-S146 · Series · 1947-2017

The series contains photographs, biographical material pertaining to her election to General Council, her MA in Sacred Theology from Regis College in 1983, her Doctor of Ministry degree from Toronto School of Theology in 1990, her employment at Regis College as Director of the MA in Ministry and Spirituality Program, various news-clippings, a hand painted Feast Day album, a hand painted card from the Precious Blood Sisters in 1979, and various Jubilee memorabilia. The series also contains different versions of Sister Cathleen’s curriculum vitae, a report by her about a pilgrimage she made to Europe and the Holy Land, and a paper written about Sister Cathleen by her grandson, Brandon Graham, in 2017.

Much of this series is made up of reports to the General Chapter from various Sisters in 1979. There is extensive material on the topic of catechetics, religious education and the future for Sisters in parish ministry. In a letter to the Secretary of State, Vatican Apostolic College, Mother Mary Brendan reported on the success of literacy programs provided to Portuguese immigrants in London. A report from the Archdiocese in Edmonton describes the need for a five-year National Religion Program consisting of teams of Sisters providing instruction in Catholic schools, and the involvement of lay people to provide instruction to adults.

A report on the activities of the St. Joseph’s School of Music 1975-1979 discusses the renovation of the Recital Hall, instruction in piano, singing, violin and music theory for 390 students annually, participation in the Royal Conservatory of Toronto and the Western Conservatory, a scholarship fund, professional development for the Sisters and the hosting of and participation in local music festivals. A report by one Sister in April, 1979 expresses uncertainty as to the future of the music school.

In early 1979, Mother Mary Brendan wrote to Sisters across the country seeking their views in response to the promulgation of Vatican II, the Pastoral Constitution of the Church in the Modern World. One Sister wrote with concern for the socio-economic interests of the Third World and rising tensions within the Christian communities about how to respond. In another report, Sister St. Patrick Joyce outlined what were novel recommendations for the treatment of alcohol addiction and the concept of detoxification centres. Sisters committed to the continuation of work of the Boulee Street mission which served the needs of a low income neighborhood in London and support for those in jail. In another report, a Sister wrote on the topic of evangelization and Christian renewal in a climate of diversity, pluralism and the attraction to Eastern spiritual disciplines. In another report, one Sister called for an increased commitment to youth and adults through solid religious instruction and the teaching of prayer. There is also a survey, report, and recommendations prepared for the Most Reverend J.N. MacNeil by the Ad Hoc Committee for Pastoral Assistants in the Archdiocese of Edmonton, February 1979 outlining the scope of work and hiring of pastoral assistants to aid priests in their work.

On the topic of the higher incidence of divorce and the Marriage Tribunal, Sisters recommended that more women study, teach and write about the Canon law conventions and procedures in jurisprudence. There are several reports outlining emergent changes within the healthcare system related to governance, administration, funding, personnel, medico-moral issues, medical treatments, and technology. Sisters confirm there was a common need for continued pastoral care at the hospitals in London, Sarnia, and Windsor. It was observed that there were increasing needs for retreats for Sisters and lay volunteers offered by the Medaille House in London and for societal formation, or a reorientation to religious life.

This series contains sixteen speeches written by Mother Mary Brendan and a paper she wrote for the Synod on the role of religious women in the community through teaching, hospital care, administration, and social work. Certificates of her educational achievements and professional memberships dating from 1947 to 2001 are included along with a certificate she received with a medal from Queen Elizabeth.

Le fonds d’archives du Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario (TNO) témoigne des différentes activités et réalisations de la compagnie de théâtre depuis ses tout débuts, tout en nous renseignant sur les transformations et l’évolution de cette compagnie théâtrale. De plus, les documents reflètent l’essence même propre au TNO, ainsi que sa culture organisationnelle.

À ce titre, on y retrouve des dossiers témoignant du mouvement ayant mené à la création de la troupe de théâtre. Ainsi, il y a des dossiers sur les pièces de théâtre crées et jouées à l’université Laurentienne, les journaux étudiants, tout comme des dossiers sur les diverses personnes ayant un rôle direct ou indirect dans la naissance du TNO. Le fonds d’archives témoigne aussi des gens qui ont oeuvré au sein de la compagnie de théâtre, et de l’implication du TNO auprès de la communauté franco-ontarienne, de son rayonnement et de son impact plus spécifiquement à Sudbury.

En effet, le fonds d’archives contient les dossiers des différentes sphères d’activités inhérentes à une compagnie de théâtre. Ainsi, les procès-verbaux des différents comités administratifs, la correspondance, les demandes de subventions, l’embauche du personnel, et les démarches pour assurer la promotion des programmes saisonniers tout comme les différents rapports d’activités documentent la gestion des ressources financières, mais aussi l’évolution de la compagnie de théâtre. On y retrouve également les documents traitant des changements de sa structure, ainsi que des projets en collaborations avec d’autres organismes du milieu artistique et culturel. Le fonds d’archives comprends aussi les bilans financiers pour chacun des spectacles.

Les différents dossiers de production et création artistiques contiennent des renseignements sur la production et diffusion des différents spectacles du TNO, spectacles de poésie, pièces de théâtre, soit pour toutes les pièces jouées au TNO ainsi que celles produites par le TNO, et ce tant par la troupe professionnelle que communautaire. On retrouve d’ailleurs les dossiers de presse pour les pièces de théâtre présentées ou encore sur les auteurs des pièces. Le fonds d’archives contient également les ententes contractées pour les tournées, mais aussi sur la scénographie, et l’adaptation de certains textes et les éléments de la mise en scène. Il en est de même pour les aspects techniques tel que l’éclairage et les décors. Ainsi, parmi ces dossiers il y a les croquis pour la marionnette Médéric Boileau, dans la pièce La vie et les temps de Médéric Boileau, les esquisses de décor ou encore d’affiches publicitaires. Les différentes tournées tant en Europe qu’au Canada-français, et les tournées des pièces pour enfants, dans les écoles du nord de l’Ontario français sont également bien documentées. Les dossiers de promotion des pièces pour enfants, la correspondance avec les intervenants scolaires et les dessins d’appréciation des enfants permettent une vue d’ensemble de ce type de production théâtrale du TNO.

On y retrouve également des créations littéraires. Parmi celles-ci, il y a des textes d’André Paiement pour lesquels on y retrouve les versions, les notes et commentaires de différents intervenants ayant participé à la création collective de certains de ces textes de pièces de théâtre. Mentionnons aussi les écrits des artistes invités en ‘résidence’ pour lesquels il y a plusieurs des créations littéraires lors de leur séjour au TNO. Le fonds d’archives contient aussi des poèmes inédits de Jean-Marc Dalpé, mais aussi des notes, commentaires, synopsis de différents intervenants impliqués directement ou indirectement dans des productions du TNO. À ce titre, des notes d’appréciation ou encore d’explication de Pierre Gravel, Michel Ouellette, ou encore des commentaires ou présentations de Brigitte Haentjens en tant que directrice artistique ou metteur en scène, ou des notes, de la correspondance ou journal de voyage d’acteurs ou d’actrices en tournée ou des gens de l’équipe, sont aussi compris dans le fonds d’archives et témoignent non seulement d’une culture artistique mais aussi d’un vécu d’individus impliqués dans le milieu culturel franco-ontarien.

Le fond d’archives contient également de nombreux témoignages de l’interaction entre le TNO et d’autres organismes à caractère culturel tel que: Les Éditions Prise de Parole, ou encore la Galerie du Nouvel Ontario, mais aussi de compagnies de théâtre franco-ontariennes ou du Canada-français et même d’outre-mer. À ce titre, on retrouve aussi les documents d’incorporation de la Coopérative des artisans du Nouvel Ontario (CANO) ainsi que la correspondance, et la publication de celle-ci, Journal de Bord qui était publiée par Yvan Rancourt. Il en est de même pour l’association du TNO avec La Slague, plusieurs dossiers documentent cette période de la compagnie de théâtre. Des croquis, des documents d’architecture d’études de marché témoignent des différents projets de regroupement d’organismes culturels et documentent les démarches pour l’obtention de la salle actuelle du TNO.

On retrouve aussi des dossiers de documentation qui attestent de la participation active du TNO dans la communauté francophone de Sudbury, lors de festivals ou d’évènements communautaires, mais aussi du soutien de la communauté envers le TNO.
