  • 1990-2006

Consisting of 643 records, primarily correspondence related to the various editions of the institute’s “Directory of Spiritualist Organizations in Canada”, this fonds takes up 0.39 linear metres of shelf space and is fully textual. The items and folders were organized by the donor, by directory edtiion (year) and province. The records pertaining to each year of publication are divided into their various components, as seen by the donor, such as the final copy, questionnaires and records relating to distribution. The fonds consists of six publication years: 1991, 1992, 1994, 1996, 2000 and 2006. Records bound together by staples, archival clips or other means were done so by the transferring agent and thus are treated as a single record, even those which contain what could be considered more than one document.
