Fonds consists primarily of the personal and professional correspondence of Allan Cunningham and a collection of historical essays about SFU.

Cunningham, Allan B.


Series consists of the personal and professional correspondence of Cunningham as well as miscellaneous documents apparently kept by Cunningham for their historical value in depicting the early years at SFU. Documents relate to such topics as the opening of the University, administrative and teaching matters, student protests, and the Friends of SFU (a U.S.-based fund-raising organization).

SFU Historical Essays

Cunningham asked several early faculty and other members of the SFU community to write down their recollections of the early years of the University. He had hoped that the University would produce a collection of essays to mark its 20th Anniversary. On the advice of an anonymous referee, the University decided against publishing the work. Cunningham considered other ways of producing the volume, but died before he could complete the project.

Series includes rough drafts and final drafts of essays selected for the volume by Cunningham. Essays are listed by individual author. Series also includes correspondence about the project, essays not selected for the proposed volume (submissions by Cunningham, G. Bursill-Hall, T. Finlayson, M. Gibbons, E. Harden, A. Hean, D. Roberts, W. Vidauer, and L. Wilson), and a collection of historical essays by Archie MacKinnon.
