Edmund G. Berry fonds

  • CA UMASC MSS SC 137
  • Fonds
  • 1958-1959

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.

Emil and Lynette Hain Fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1899-1927

The Emil and Lynette Hain fonds consists of textual records, such as letters, handwritten lecture notes, a program advertising the Rev.

The fonds also contains negatives, and a collection of glass lantern slides and created by Rev.

Watson created the glass lantern slides from his original negatives and used them as the basis of his lecture tour titled "The Boers: Their Country, their Ways, their Neighbours, and their War."

Emil Hain donated two Brooke High School yearbooks from 1953 and 1954 (Rivers, Manitoba). The collection also contains one film reel and a program documenting the 1958 installation banquet for the Zeta Iota chapter of the Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity at the University of Manitoba, as well as a 1958 copy of the Fraternity magazine (Teke Life) which talks about the fraternity at the University of Manitoba.
