Scope and content

The series contains records related to Leonard Cullen's self-memorializing activities, including his writing of memoirs and involvement in two projects of the Baptist Convention of Ontario and Quebec (BCOQ): a Baptist Leadership Education Centre (BLEC) and a Christian Heritage Park. In 1981, Leonard Cullen began fundraising for a BLEC in Whitby. Cullen also donated land for the project via Cullen Gardens Inc.; the BLEC was completed in 1984. In the same period, Cullen developed the concept of a Christian Heritage Park, sometimes called an Ontario Heritage Theme Park, which was to be located on Taunton Road West in Whitby. This park was not built.

Records in the series are arranged in subject files. Documentary forms include Cullen's self-published, softcover monographs and his autobiographical essay; BCOQ newsletters, correspondence, event invitations, agendas, pledge forms, and agreements with the Town of Whitby; and BLEC proposals, informative pamphlets, floor plans, technical drawings, project management agreements, and a Canada Works funding application.
