Scope and content

This sous-fonds comprises materials gathered by Tom McGauley during his research into Doukhobor affairs during the hearings of the Kootenay Committee on Intergroup Relations (1982-1986), as well as other Doukhobor related items.
A substantial bulk o f the collection is composed of the reports of the KCIR and photocopies of documents, translations, or other submissions made during the hearings. Also, included are original documentary photographs, Sons of Freedom circular letters and publications, correspondence with several members of the Doukhobor community, various notes and other observations made by McGauley, books, recordings, and a large number of relevant clippings and newspapers. A lot of material was collected in the Kootenays and considerable amount of the records in this sous-fonds is related to the Sons of Freedom.

This sous-fonds consists of seven main series: 1: Photographs; 2: Correspondence; 3: Publications, clippings; 4: Writings; 5: General records; 6: Posters; 7: Media

Immediate source of acquisition

Records have been acquired from Tom McGauley


Records in this sous-fonds have been arranged by the archivist.
In McGauley’s “rough” inventory from September 2012, he had several distinct entries for the newsletter ISTINA, some of which were specifically listed by content subjects. However, all were co-mingled and, barring those that were specifically mentioned by exact date, it was not possible to accurately determine his original groupings. The newsletters were therefore arranged chronologically and grouped that way.
