Custodial history

Ce fonds fut acquis par les Archives de l'Université de l'Alberta (UAA) de la part des Archives Saint-Jean, anciennement situé au Campus Saint-Jean de l'Université de l'Alberta. Le but principal des Archives Saint-Jean était de préserver le matériel archivistique qui avait déjà été acquis au fil des ans par l'ancien IRFOC (Institut de recherche francophone de l’ouest canadien) et ensuite par l’ancien IPFOC (Institut pour le patrimoine de la francophonie de l’ouest canadien).

This fonds was acquired by the University of Alberta Archives in 2019 from the Archives Saint-Jean that was previously housed at the University of Alberta’s Campus Saint-Jean. The Archives Saint-Jean’s main goal was to preserve archival materials that had already been acquired by the IRFOC (Institut de recherche francophone de l’ouest canadien) and subsequently by IPFOC (Institut pour le patrimoine de la francophonie de l’ouest canadien).

Scope and content

Le fonds contient la documentation recueillie pour l'article et par la suite de celui-ci (entre 1979 et 1986). Il comprend quelques originaux de lettres envoyées au professeur Smith, des coupures de presse de textes inédits et tirées de divers journaux et, surtout, des photocopies d'articles de périodiques et de journaux relatifs à la francophonie albertaine.

The fonds contains documentation collected for the purpose of the article and more (between 1979 and 1986).
