The Georg Kaiser Collection at the University of Alberta
The Georg Kaiser Collection, housed at the University of Alberta Archives, was acquired by the Department of Germanic Languages and the University of Alberta Libraries under the guidance of Prof. Ernest Reinhold, University of Alberta, with the assistance of Prof. Armin Arnold, McGill University. In July 1962, the University of Alberta and the Akademie der Künste, Berlin, agreed to establish at the University of Alberta a repository of photocopies or microfilm reproductions of manuscripts and documentary materials currently held in the Georg-Kaiser-Archiv of the Akademie der Künste. A similar agreement with the heirs of the Swiss poet Caesar von Arx, Kaiser’s closest friend, provided for the transfer from Switzerland to the University of Alberta of photocopies and microfilms of manuscripts, letters, and other documents written by or about Georg Kaiser during his life in exile. The Georg Kaiser Collection at the University of Alberta is privileged to possess a uniquely complete collection of the Kaiser fond.
The Collection includes dramatic, epic, lyric, and theoretical works written by Georg Kaiser as well as his correspondence. It further includes documents relating to the life of Georg Kaiser, who is one of the most prolific expressionist playwrights and who remains one of the most frequently-played dramatists from this period. The Collection is enhanced by original photographs of scenes, programs, and posters relating to the various productions of his plays. The primary materials consist mainly of photocopies of manuscripts and correspondence, including several original letters and original radio and stage scripts, whereas the secondary materials include original newspaper clippings and photocopies of the same, posters, photographs, correspondence, organizational materials and sound recordings of the Georg Kaiser 1878-1978 Symposium (1978: Edmonton), in addition to photocopies of theater programs, reviews, research papers, journal articles, as well as photocopies of trial documents. Copies of cards from the card catalogue of the Kaiser archives in Berlin are also included. Part of the collection which consists primarily of materials acquired from Switzerland is on microfilm, however, most microfilmed documents are also available in paper format.
This bibliography is the result of a four month project initiated and directed by Prof. Marianne Henn and funded by the Research Initiatives Fund, Dean of Arts, Director of Libraries, Division of Germanic Languages, Department of Modern Languages and Comparative Studies at the University of Alberta, and private donors. The project was conducted in the Bruce Peel Special Collections Library with professional support provided by John Charles and Jeannine Green.
The goal of the project was to create an electronic database which will make the Georg Kaiser Collection accessible to scholars and researchers not only at the University of Alberta but also at other academic institutions in Canada and the United States. The target audience of the project includes faculty and students in the following disciplines: German literature, comparative literature, drama, and film studies. The material may also be of interest for interdisciplinary studies, studies of literary and theater criticism of a certain historical period, and studies of the influence of political history on literary production and on the reception of a writer and his works.
The Georg Kaiser Database was developed in Pro-Cite 3.2 for Windows. It includes 360 records describing the Georg Kaiser Collection.
The Georg Kaiser Bibliography with a keyword index is generated from the Database and enhanced into a pre-coordinated index in paper format to serve as a guide to the Collection. The Georg Kaiser Database (in Pro-Cite) will be networked and accessible through the LAN of the Faculty of Arts at the University of Alberta.
The records of the Georg Kaiser Collection were received by the Bruce Peel Special Collections Library in two accessions, 96-2 and 96-161 (the number 96 being the code of the Library’s manuscript collections). This Bibliography describes the records of the Kaiser fond in 360 citations, corresponding to the 360 files in the two accessions. It includes primary and secondary materials from 1896 to 1997. Published monographs from the holdings of the University of Alberta Libraries are not included.
The organization of the citations in the Bibliography follows entirely the organization of the accessions 96-2 (i.e. 96-2-1 to 96-2-317) and 96-161 (i.e. 96-161-1 to 96-161-43). This organization was chosen to facilitate physical retrieval of records from the Collection and to make the Keyword index usable in paper format.
The number of each citation in the Bibliography corresponds to the accession number of the described file in the Georg Kaiser Collection, i.e. the citation number is the same as the file number (the last part of each accession number). For example, in the file number 96-2-5, its first part, 96-2-, is the accession number of the manuscript collection, and its last part, 5, is the file number within the collection; 5 is also the number within the appropriate accession in the Bibliography which precedes the corresponding citation.
The Bibliography is divided into two parts corresponding with the two accessions, 96-2 and 96-161. Each part includes two sections, Section 1: Primary materials and Section 2: Secondary materials. In Section 1, the citations are organized alphabetically by document type; within each document type, they are arranged alphabetically by title or by subject of the item or file. In Section 2, the citations are organized in sub-sections by format and document type; within each sub-section, they follow in alphabetical order by the subject of the file.
Since the Bibliography focuses on primary materials, the citations included in Section 1 describe the records on item level. The only exceptions to this rule are the Correspondence and the Poetry sub-sections, where the citations describe the material on the file level. The latter level of description also applies to the secondary materials in Section 2.
The citations do not follow a particular citation style because they describe unpublished manuscripts. The citations for secondary materials, although they include published materials (newspaper clippings, journal articles, parts of books, etc.), provide a file level description.
The format of the citations was developed by the compiler of the Bibliography and represents a combination of cataloguing rules (AACR2r) and principles of archival description. In cases where single issues of periodicals or theater programs are described within particular citations, the description follows the reference list citation type provided in Turabian's Manual for Writers (1987). Each citation includes the following fields: Number, Title, Date, a Note with detailed description, and the Accession number of the file.
The main source of information for the data provided in each citation was the particular item or file that has been described. For the verification of titles, names, and dates, or in cases when the information was incomplete or missing from the main source, the following sources were used: Georg Kaiser Werke (Huder 1971); Georg Kaiser Briefe (Valk 1980); "Bibliographie" in Georg Kaiser (Pausch and Reinhold 1980); Georg Kaiser, Stücke, Erzählungen, Aufsätze, Gedichte (Huder 1966); Georg Kaiser Symposium (Pausch and Reinhold 1980). Any information in the citation that was not taken from the main source of information is enclosed in square brackets.

The Human Rights Institute of Canada fonds contains the records of the Human Rights Institute of Canada and its founder and president, Marguerite Ritchie. The Human Rights Institute of Canada is an independent, not for profit, non-partisan research group which conducts and promotes research into issues that impede equality for Canadians, as per the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights, with a specific focus on women’s equality. This Institute was founded by Ottawa based lawyer, Marguerite Ritchie, a former lawyer for the Department of Justice and Vice-Chair of the Anti-Dumping Tribunal. The fundamental premise of the Institute was to provide expert legal research to the Canadian people in the same way that the Department of Justice gives legal advice to the Government of Canada. As founder and President, Marguerite Ritchie set the tone for the Institute and this fonds also contains her papers from before she founded the Human Rights Institute of Canada.
The materials in this fonds date from 1934 to 2013. Materials from the Human Rights Institute of Canada are from 1973 to 2013, while legal research materials date back to the 1700s. The fonds pertains predominately to Canada, with some research on the United States of America (USA), Europe, the Soviet Union (USSR), the Middle East, and Africa. With the exception of United Nations conferences and research on Israel, most of the research on other nations and regions is for a point of comparison for rights, equality, and politics.
The fonds contains three types of materials: those of Marguerite Ritchie from her personal life and career before she founded the Human Rights Institute of Canada, those relating to the functioning of the institute, such as administrative records, and those relating to the work of the Institute produced mainly by President Marguerite Ritchie. Documents from the work of the Human Rights Institute of Canada is the largest portion of the fonds. Materials produced by the Institute were generated mostly by the projects it was involved with, including tracking issues over the course of years and its efforts to publicise its research in the media and the government. This fonds does not contain working papers of volunteers. Function based Institute records document the Human Rights Institute of Canada’s founding, its procedures, funding, support, and organisation. Materials of founder Marguerite Ritchie contain research from her work at the Department of Justice and the Anti-Dumping Tribunal, Anti-Dumping Tribunal procedures, her personal experiences facing sexism and gender discrimination while working for the federal government. It also includes her personal research on women’s issues which she began while working for the Department of Justice and which became a life-long passion.
The Human Rights Institute of Canada addresses issues of women’s equality, human rights, the United Nations and international law, Canadian laws and equality, the functioning of government, equality in the justice system, the relationship between the federal governments and the provinces, and funding and support for the Institute. Major projects the Institute worked on to address these issues include Persons Case II, Senate reform, the Meech Lake Accord and Charlottetown Accord, status equality for aboriginal women, the Expropriation of Nanoose Bay, the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples and the high arctic relocations, the Royal Commission on the Status of Women and following the development of the status of women, Quebec separatism, and the Official Languages Act and bilingualism. The most common document types are newspaper clippings, memorandum, correspondence, press releases, reports, legislation, House of Commons and Senate debates, committee minutes and proceedings from Parliament, promotional materials, and government publications. Newspaper clippings are mostly annotated with citations and marginalia. The fonds also contains a significant number of Dialogue magazines; Marguerite Ritchie was a long time contributor to this magazine, which publishes reader contributed articles on political and social issues from a variety of perspectives.

The Peter Meekison fonds document the professional career of an important teacher, researcher, and administrator who had a distinguished career with both the University of Alberta and the Provincial Government of Alberta for a period spanning nearly thirty years. His records contain material relating to both his teaching and administrative career at the University of Alberta, his work related to constitutional affairs for the Province of Alberta, and his role as a Commissioner on the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples. The records, largely textual, have been arranged according to four fairly broad series. The first series contains records related to Professor Meekison’s academic pursuits, and include some of his student notes while in the Ph.D program at Duke University and his teaching and administrative files from the University of Alberta. Included with the UofA files are teaching and research files, Vice-President (Academic) administrative files, and files related to special projects, programs, and committees Dr. Meekison was committed to while at the University. The second series contains material related more generally to Peter Meekison’s professional career, which is relevant to both his research interests at the University, and his work with the Provincial Government. There are correspondence files, sorted into the Department of Federal and Intergovernmental Affairs chronological files, general correspondence files, and ‘people’ correspondence files. As well, this series contains records related to Meekison’s involvement with various professional associations and committees, his speaking engagements and attendance at conferences and workshops, and his writing and publication activities. Subject reference files maintained by Professor Meekison are included in this series, as well as his personal appointment books. Series three consists of Peter Meekison’s Constitutional material and is arranged according to an original color-coded file scheme applied when the files were current. The color-coded files include reports, briefing books, transcripts, and issues files related to various First Minister meetings, and committee meetings surrounding the constitutional reform discussions. Many of these files were created while Peter Meekison was Minister of Alberta Federal and Inter-Governmental Affairs and relate to the amending of the Constitution Act in 1982. A set of coded files is included in this series which addresses non-Constitutional issues his Ministry was dealing with. In his capacity as constitutional adviser to the provincial government post 1984, there is material related to the Senate Reform Task Force meetings, and the constitutional committee work leading to the Meech Lake Accord discussions and the 1992 Charlottetown Accord. Included in this series are numerous constitutional background material files which provide further insight into the constitutional process and debate. The final series consists of very complete records retained by Peter Meekison in his capacity as a Commissioner on the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples (RCAP). The Commission was struck in 1992, and Meekison appointed to it in 1993. Included in the records are meeting minutes and documents, Intervener Participatory Program (IPP) submissions to the Commission, reports prepared for and by the Commission; policy team records, and background and reference files. The records are in excellent physical shape and because of their completeness and the broad span of years represented, provide valuable insight into issues facing Alberta and Canada in the 1980’s and 1990’s, as well as documenting University activities during this period and earlier.
The J. Peter Meekison fonds consists of records related to Professor Meekison's academic pursuits and his career at the University of Albera; his professional activities encompassing his research and writing files; constitutional material including Senate Reform Task Force records and Meech Lake Accord; and records of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples.

Fonds consist of records detailing the academic career of John Overton Orrell, with the bulk of the records concentrating on his academic research related to the Globe Theatre rebuilding project. Dr. Orrell became involved with the project in 1979, and was an active member with the Globe Rebuilding Committee through years of research, site digs, theory constructions, and the eventual rebuilding and opening of the replica Globe Theatre on the banks of the Thames River in London, England. His Globe project files are very detailed, and include annual project files, meeting minutes, correspondence with the Globe architect, Theo Crosby, and other members of the Globe â€˜teamâ€™, as well as detailed architectural plans, drawings, and photographs. There are also files concerning the function of the theatre once built, including opening festivities, publicity, fund-raising, and theatre season brochures.
The Orrell fonds span his academic career, including early doctoral research files which evolved into early teaching files, with detailed notes on readings, cited references, and copies of various articles, imprint, and scholarly papers related to his fields of research interest. There is a blending between what might have been research files, and what became teaching files, but the end result if a fonds that represents his many professional activities, research interests and directions. There are University of Alberta administrative files, reflecting Orrellâ€™s position as a long-serving faculty member and the accompanying duties this entailed. Dr. Orrellâ€™s professional activities are also reflected in files concerning conferences and seminars attended, speeches given, and correspondence maintained with fellow academics and colleagues.
One series is devoted to his script writing activities, which includes a number of files related to a study of British television programs and scripts, undertaken during an early sabbatical year abroad. Dr. Orrell was the author of several scripts written for Canadian radio and television productions, and copies of the annotated scripts are included in this series of records.
A fairly extensive series relates to John Orrellâ€™s research, writing and publishing activities, and again there is a blurring of lines as much of his research and writing activity is tied closely to his work with the Globe Theatre project. This series is organized into several sub-series to better facilitate access to its many components.
Only a few files concern Professor Orrellâ€™s personal life, and these are described in a small series. A final series describes the extensive photograph holdings, although a more detailed description to the photographs will be prepared at a later date.

The Lewis H. Thomas fonds span a period of over forty years, and provide a valuable record of the research, teaching, and life experiences of a significant scholar and long-serving member of the University of Alberta's faculty. In his career as an archivist; professor; and researcher and writer of scholarly history, Dr. Thomas' papers encompass a wide range of topics related to the historical development of Western Canada. The source material and research files in this fonds include a wealth of archival documents, bibliographies, imprint items, and research notes on subjects related to the exploration, settlement, and growth of Western Canada, particularly the Prairie region. Dr. Thomas published extensively in this area, and his research files and lecture note material provide insight into the many subjects he lectured and wrote about. They provide insight also into the research methodologies and strategies that he applied in his own work. There is information related to his teaching career at both the Universities of Saskatchewan (Regina) and Alberta, and documents related to the Department of History at the University of Alberta, and Professor Thomas' position as chairman of this department. Among his papers are files of professional correspondence that contain letters written to colleagues, including many well-known Canadian historians, across the country. There is correspondence with graduate students whose work Dr. Thomas supervised, and letters of recommendation prepared by Thomas for these same students as they applied for grants or employment opportunities. Shortly before he died, L.H. Thomas wrote to a young writer that "the aspect of my work which has given me the greatest satisfaction is teaching, and associations with students." (See Accession #87-130-4) He supervised the work of six doctoral students, several masters' students, and sat as a member of many thesis supervising committees. As the long-serving Alberta representative on the National Historic Sites and Monuments Board, L.H. Thomas' papers contain a great deal of information about the workings of the board with particular reference to the naming of historic sites in Alberta and Northern Canada. L.H. Thomas' varied committee experience and affiliation with other national organizations and associations is well documented in the papers. As well, L.H. Thomas' experience as an archivist, and his life-long interest in promoting and encouraging the use of archival documents in historical research, is a subject touched upon frequently in his papers. He corresponds with archivists, writes about archival practice, and fills his source material files with items gleaned from archival holdings. Finally, researchers interested in the topic of Canadian socialism may find these records relevant. L.H. Thomas was himself a life-long supporter of socialist doctrine, and published articles on the CCF and Socialist movements. His last major work before his death was a transcription of a series of taped interviews with Tommy Douglas, and records related to this subject are included in the papers. The records are in excellent physical condition and have been arranged into four series: Early Records; University of Alberta Records; Research and Publication Records; and Associations, Committees and Boards Records. Within these broad series designations are sub-series that further organize the records. Where possible, the file titles provided by L.H. Thomas are retained. A brief description of each series is provided, followed by a detailed file listing. A subject and name index is found at the end of the inventory to assist in locating specific files.
