Custodial history

Scope and content

The Algonquian Conference is an annual conference that has now been held for more than 30 years. It is scheduled for the last weekend of October and attracts a large audience, since both academics and non-academics interested in the subject can contribute papers. Organizers usually put out a call for papers in April or early May. The program committee has the right to decline unsuitable papers.

The fonds consists of organizational, fiscal, and editorial records, the cumulative index, orders, and type-settings (camera-ready artwork) for papers of the Algonquian Conference.
