Name of creator
The Department of History was established on April 28th 1976. Prior to its establishment, history courses and professors were active under the jurisdiction of the Department of Sociology, as well as various other departments such as Applied Geography and Liberal Arts. While the department existed, it did not have the ability to confer stand-alone degrees in its discipline until 2012, the first year a dedicated degree program was established for the Department of History. Prior to being able to grant their own degrees, the Department of History was an option under Arts and Contemporary Studies (circa. 2006).
Scope and content
This fonds contains documents produced by the Department of History commencing in 1967. Grouped into 4 distinct series (Administrative and Internal Records, Lecture Series and Guest Seminars, Posters and Graphic Material, and Photographs), the fonds contains a wide array of textual records, posters and a small collection of photographs. Documents regarding internal memorandums and correspondence, guest lectures, speeches, job postings, posters for lecture series, and photographs of some of the department faculty can be found within this fonds.
The overall physical condition of the fonds is very good, with no major issues affecting the documents.
