Nom du producteur
Edmund G. Berry was born in Aberdeenshire in 1915. He received his earliest education in Scotland before immigrating to Canada with his parents. Berry attended Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, where he received a B.A. Honours degree in Classics in 1936 and an M.A. in 1937. In 1940 he completed his Ph.D. in the Department of Greek at the University of Chicago and accepted an appointment to the Classics department at the University of Manitoba. He became department head in 1956, a position he held for 17 years, and retired in 1980. After retirement Berry was appointed Professor Emeritus of the University of Manitoba. Professor Berry published Emerson's Plutarch in 1961 and numerous articles over the course of his academic career.
Historique de la conservation
The textual records were donated by Edmund G. Berry to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections on September 3, 1993. This fonds was originally titled "Harry S. Crowe," but was changed to its present title in March 2002 due to its provenance. The photograph collection was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections in 1980.
Portée et contenu
Like many academics in 1958, Edmund G. Berry became interested in what became known as the Crowe case and its testing of the boundaries of academic freedom in Canadian universities and colleges. In March of 1958 United College (now a part of the University of Winnipeg) Principal Wilfred C. Lockhart anonymously received an opened letter written by tenured History Professor Harry S. Crowe, then on academic leave at Queens University, that was intended for United College German professor William (Viljo) Packer. In the letter, the content of which was never made public, Crowe apparently made disparaging remarks about the academic environment of United College. Lockhart was offended by the letter and sent correspondence to Crowe that if he in fact viewed the college in such a negative way, he should seek employment elsewhere and would be given a year to seek employment. Crowe refused to resign and thus began a process of acrimonious negotiation between Crowe and the administration. Universities across the country closely followed the Crowe case. Eventually Crowe was allowed to stay at United College, but opted to move to a new job as research director for the Canadian Brotherhood of Railway, Transport and General Workers. He returned to academia at York University in 1966.
