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.

A very few post-games papers reflect on the Society and its eventual dissolution in 1970.

Not included here are records of the games themselves, i.e. the day-by-day chronicle and description of athletic performances. However, the motion pictures include two detailed commentaries on film of the Collection. Furthermore there is a valuable oral tape recording about the Games by Bob Picken.
