Naam van de archiefvormer
LOG was started in 1995 after Sue Smee put an advertisement in Capital Xtra, Ottawa’s gay and lesbian newspaper, inviting lesbians in the area to meet at her home. This first meeting consisted of 12 women and membership grew over the next 10 years to over 100 members. The organization was led by a Coordinating Committee with each individual taking on a specific role and each activity conducted by the group was assigned an activity leader. In 2005 Sue Smee stepped down from an organizing role, although the group continued with new leadership afterwards and is still in operation as of 2018.
Records were kept by the founder Sue Smee until donation of 2008-003 in 2008. She donated 2011-110 in 2011 which contains additional LOG records for 1996-1998.
Bereik en inhoud
Fonds consists of organizational records and planning documents for the Lesbian Outdoors Group from 1995-2007. Meeting minutes detail disagreements over funds allocations, discussions of group management techniques, reflections on equity within the group and how social dynamics contribute to equity and inequity. A majority of the materials consist of handwritten or printed notes recording and planning LOG activities and meetings. The fonds also contain LOG promotional materials and photos.
Physical condition is good especially for those materials printed from a USB drive. Some handwritten notes are difficult to decipher.
Directe bron van verwerving
The fonds was donated as a gift in two installments from the founder Sue Smee in 2008 and 2011.
Previously, this fonds was arranged into 2 series: Activities and Administration. In 2018 the fonds was rearranged to eliminate the series arrangement.
