Charles Ernest L'Ami fonds

  • CA UMASC MSS 25
  • Fonds
  • 1930-1980

The fonds consists of correspondence dealing with Charles L'Ami's literary work, career development and political views, literary manuscripts, short stories, dramas and poems, articles, radio scripts, letters to editors, and various resource materials such as reviews, scrapbooks and news clippings.

The Charles Ernest L'Ami collection consists of the following: correspondence dealing mainly with his literary work, career development, and personal opinions and political views; literary manuscripts to his published and unpublished novels, short stories, dramas, and poems; articles; radio scripts; letters to editors; and various resource materials such as reviews, scrapbooks, news clippings, etc.

The collection is fairly complete and representative of L'Ami the writer. Several strictly personal letters were withdrawn from the collection while being processed and returned to the surviving son, Charles A. L'Ami. Nothing was returned or destroyed that reflected L'Ami's philosophy, interpretations, or literary endeavors.

As a local writer of only modest fame, L'Ami never established a national reputation. He was, at heart, a journalist and freelance writer, an interesting blend of the old world and the Canadian prairie with pronounced conservative and traditional leanings and viewpoints. His one major success, The Green Madonna, is not well-known today and little remembered. It may well be that the collection of unpublished works and translations possess future promise for students of Canadian literature.

L'Ami, C. E. (Charles Ernest)

John Zubek fonds

  • CA UMASC MSS 85 (A1992-022, A1995-023)
  • Fonds
  • 1952-1974

The Zubek Collection arrived at the Department of Archives and Special Collections in sixteen boxes. Roughly half of the material consisted of raw data results from various psychological tests Profesor Zubek administered to candidates in the sensory deprivation program. While significant to Dr. Zubek and his colleagues during their tests, this material held little archival significance. Of far more permanent value are his notes, rough copies and correspondence with many editors of learned journals in which he published. There is considerable correspondence between Zubek and the many funding bodies that he approached for capital. The collection is also rich in correspondence and related materials from other scholars, associations, and organizations like NATO that funded his research. Press clippings, both laudatory and highly critical of Zubek's research, have been maintained as have his books and correspondence commenting on papers that he presented at international conferences. While in short supply, there are photographs documenting sensory deprivation experiments.
