Fonds Conseil des écoles séparées catholiques romaines du district de Sudbury

  • CA ON00159 P115
  • Fonds
  • 1968-1998

Composé principalement de procès-verbaux et de documents afférents, de documentation et de photographies, le fonds d'archives contient des documents surtout pour les années 1969 à 1997. Toutefois, pour certains comités, il n'y a pas de documents pour chaque année.

On y retrouve des documents pour plusieurs des comités administratifs qui relèvent du Conseil administratif. Les procès-verbaux et documents afférents de ces comités nous informent sur plusieurs aspects du fonctionnement d'un conseil scolaire. Par exemple, la gestion financière et administrative d'un conseil ainsi que, l'entretien et les rénovations des propriétés scolaires sont bien documentés.

La participation des parents et des enseignants est illustrée par les documents des assemblées des citoyens et des parents et instituteurs.

L'amalgamation des conseils scolaires, suite à la Loi 104, a fait en sorte que le Conseil scolaire de la Rive Nord et le Conseil scolaire de Chapleau se sont joints au Conseil des écoles séparées catholiques romaines du district de Sudbury. On y retrouve donc des procès-verbaux de ces conseils scolaires dans ce fonds d'archives. L'administration des deux conseils est bien documentée par les procès-verbaux. Il en est de même pour la commission d'amélioration de l'éducation pour le Conseil scolaire de Chapleau.

Le fonds est divisé en 2 séries: Série I – Conseil administratif et Série II –Documentation.

  • ca. 1938-2000 (predominant 1951-1973)

The Margaret (Peg) and Dennis Roberts fonds attests to their involvement in the Northern Ontario community, and more specifically, in the areas of education and culture.

The files also include certificates of the many awards received by Peg Roberts in recognition of her dedicated service and accomplishments in the promotion of the arts throughout Northern Ontario.

Dennis Roberts’ files consist of his employment records, research papers, studies and documentation related to his professional life, more specifically dealing with his interventions with children. Some of the documentation, in the form of speeches document his role in training and assisting in education.

Jennifer Keck fonds

  • CA ON00159 P113
  • Fonds
  • 1976-2002

The Jennifer Keck fonds attests to her professional and public involvement in matters related to social justice. Her training and employment in social work and commitment to improving the lives of others is reflected in her scholarly works and records that show her community involvement. The documents illustrate her exploration of topics such as labour, welfare, Indigenous issues, community development and organizing, as well as poverty, employment, and issues related to women and families. These interests are reflected in the records created through projects that she undertook as an academic, such as the multifaceted Women at INCO project. The fonds indicates that she addressed these same issues in her community activism, through her involvement in Better Beginnings, Better Futures, Sudbury Women's Centre, Myths and Mirrors Community Arts, Circles of Strength: Sudbury Breast Cancer Support Group, and through frequent contributions to local media. Her work as a researcher for the Anti-Mercury Ojibwa Group and for her own publications on government job creation initiatives, labour and community issues is also represented in textual form.

These records, generated during Dr. Keck's professional career, also reveal her personal interests and goals. The speeches, presentations and workshops that are documented in the fonds reflect her struggle with cancer, her commitment to the underprivileged and her strong affiliation with feminist theory and practice.

The fonds comprises course and teaching materials, documentation, professional correspondence, administrative materials, and items that attest to Dr. Keck's scholarly output, such as presentations, publications and workshops. The fonds also contains photographs, physical objects and audio and videocassettes.

The majority of the documents contained in this fonds were created during Dr. Keck's time as a professor in the School of Social Work, Laurentian University. The fonds also comprises a comprehensive body of textual, audiovisual and photographic material on the Women at INCO project, documentation of her PhD thesis, taped interviews and transcripts with the working poor, and material related to her employment as a field research coordinator with the Anti-Mercury Ojibwa Group.

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.
