Barry Broadfoot fonds

  • CA UMASC MSS 102, PC 104
  • Fonds
  • 1973-1989

The Broadfoot collection is organized primarily according to his nine published histories: Ten Lost Years (1973); Six War Years (1974); The Pioneer Years (1976); Years of Sorrow, Years of Shame (1977); My Own Years (1983); The Veterans' Years (1985); The Immigrant Years (1986); Next-Year Country (1988) and Ordinary Russians (1989). Contained within these collections are contracts, manuscripts (edited and unedited), rejected stories and photographs relating to the books that were finally produced. Signed copies of the books are provided for all but Six War Years. Newspaper and magazine reviews have been included for most of the books. There are also two unpublished manuscripts and a number of essays on such topics as the writing of oral history and the publishing industry in Canada. Broadfoot carefully organized his papers and included descriptions and explanations of most of his papers.

An important aspect of the collection is the correspondence that Broadfoot received when he solicited the assistance of Canadians in the writing of two of his books: The Veterans' Years (1985) and The Immigrant Years (1986). The files of correspondence (seven for The Veterans' Years and three for The Immigrant Years) include, respectively, stories from men and women detailing their personal experiences in the Second World War and their return to Canada; and stories of families and individuals who immigrated to Canada in the post-war era and their adjustment to Canadian life.

A conspicuous absence in Broadfoot's collection is his taped interviews. Broadfoot did not save his tapes and, thus, the actual reminiscences are not available to the researcher. As well, Broadfoot corresponded for twelve years with Canadian author, Margaret Laurence. According to Broadfoot, Laurence kept all of his letters. However, Broadfoot destroyed all of Laurence's letters to him.

Simma Holt fonds

  • CA UMASC MSS 103-A1990-020, A1990-038, A1990-048
  • Accession
  • 1941-1989
  • Part of Simma Holt fonds

Simma Holt's collection is arranged under the main series of personal, publications, and politics. Under the series heading of publications, the papers are organized according to her four books: Terror in the Name of God , Sex and the Teen Age Revolution , The Devil's Butler , and The Other Mrs. Diefenbaker . In addition, there are sub-series for Holt's work as a journalist for the Sun and her work as a lecturer and free-lance columnist.

One of the most important holdings under the sub-series of journalism is a bound volume containing the complete series of The Vancouver Express , the newspaper that began with the lockout of Pacific Press employees on February 21, 1970 and ended when they returned to their jobs on May 15, 1970.

Of the four books published by Holt, Terror in the Name of God is the richest source of documents and photographs. The collection contains letters and records by early Freedomite leaders dating back to the 1920s. Holt went to Ottawa to research Freedomite origins; while there the police gave her access to secret files. Of the photographs, Holt wrote: "So fantastic and bizarre have been the antics of the Sons of Freedom Doukhobors in Canada that photographers have come from across the country and around the world to capture on film the fragments of their strange way of life." The photograph collection contains an album of over five-hundred pictures pertaining to the history of the Doukhobors. In addition, there are approximately 1,000 photos in this collection. These photos were acquired from the RCMP in Nelson B.C., the Vancouver Sun's photographer George Diack, former Nelson freelancer for CBC and the Sun Alice Jane Sloan, and former Nelson News photographer Bob Blackmore. The manuscript collection contains records of Doukhobor trials regarding bombings and burnings in B.C. in 1953, 1958, and 1962.

Holt's tape collection includes many interviews that pertain to The Other Mrs. Diefenbaker . Holt interviewed Edna's relatives as well as many of Diefenbaker's colleagues in parliament such as T.C. Douglas, Paul Martin, and Senator David Walker. She also interviewed Judge Roy Hall about the Atherton case which Diefenbaker successfully defended. Also in the tape collection are telephone conversations of the Satan's Angels motorcycle gang, taped by the police and interviews with Donna, the main character in The Devil's Butler .

In addition to material pertaining to her four books, Holt's collection includes an unpublished manuscript called "Divorce Lawyer," a biography of Neil Fleischman. In the tape collection are eighteen interviews with Hugh Pickett, Canada's best known impresario who became the owner and head of Famous Artists in Vancouver. Holt and Pickett had plans to publish a book using the taped interviews.

Both Terror in the Name of God and The Other Mrs. Diefenbaker evolved through many drafts and revisions. These edited drafts are also in Holt's collection.

During Holt's five year stint in politics, she maintained a voluminous correspondence. Unedited copies of letters written as a member of parliament between July 1974 and June 1979 are also in the collection.
