Fonds consists of correspondence and reports generated by Professor John Wadland in his capacity as Director of the Frost Centre for Canadian Studies and Native Studies at Trent University. Files pertain to the International Program, Association for Canadian Studies, Contact (Canada Studies Foundation newsletter), and fundraising at the university.Wadland, John
These files contain newspaper and magazine articles, photocopies of articles from books and periodicals, and original booklets and publications, including some government publications. The materials were collected between the early 1970's and early 1990's, but some material dates back to the 1940s. The subjects of the files vary greatly and deal with various Canadiana topics such as media, publishing and related issues, northern studies, native studies, land settlement and land use, arts, etc. Perhaps the most useful part of the files will be the name files.
The files will be useful as a starting place for research on specific topics. They reflect the years they were collected and are by no means exhaustive, but offer another tool for researchers to use.Wadland, John
