OCO'88

XV Olympic Winter Games, Sports Group fonds

  • CA ccg ccg-2066
  • Fonds
  • 1977-1988, predominant 1981-1988

The records of the Sports Group are predominantly textual (nearly 17 meters) but are also made up of a number of photographic images and oversize documents within the series. Photographic images have either been placed in acid-free enclosures or, in the case of slides, placed into appropriate "sleeves" and then into a binder for storage. The oversize material consists of a number of maps, plans and schedules as well as material used for presentations. These have been removed from original file folders and placed either into oversize Hollinger storage boxes or into map folders and then into a map cabinet. Graphics, sound cassettes and some computer diskettes are also part of the records of this Group. As in many of the series in the OCO'88 records, a number of documents in telefax form were found in the Sports Group. Because of the rapid deterioration of these records, they have been photocopied for preservation. In the most severe cases--where the fading of the document was so extreme as to make photocopying impossible--the "faxed" documents have been transcribed. A number of boxes of OCO records intended for the City of Calgary Archives were mistakenly set to Kestrel Data Inc., the company responsible for the storage of OCO's financial records. This material was transferred to the Archives in 1991 August. All of the accrued material from the Sports Group was from the records of Brian Murphy, the first Vice President of the Sports Group (Series V). The records of the Sports Group consists of six series (listed below) and descriptions at the series level in the published inventories are sometimes quite detailed. Three of the series (II, IV and V) are the result of the work of more than one records creator. The records in Series IV came from the offices of Brian Murphy and Bruce Wasylik, and those in Series V are clearly identified as being the result of the work of several Sports Coordinators; however, the origin of the materials in Series II is less certain.

OCO'88

XV Olympic Winter Games, Team'88 Services Group fonds

  • CA ccg ccg-2083
  • Fonds
  • 1977-1988, predominant 1981-1988

The fonds consists of 15 series, each of which is introduced by an "Archival Description" section and a "Scope and Content" note. Lengthier narratives have been added at the series level, rather than in the "Administrative History" section of the Team'88 Services Group above. With the ever-changing structure of OCO'88, the relative late creation of the Team'88 Services Group and numerous staff changes in a relatively short time, more detailed descriptions at the series level should make for easier use of the records by researchers.

XV Olympic Winter Games, Communications Group fonds

  • CA ccg ccg-2080
  • Fonds
  • 1979-1988

The fonds consists of 23 series, each of which is introduced by an "Administrative History" section and a "Scope and Content" note. Lengthier narratives have been added at the series level, rather than in the "Administrative History" of the Communications Group above. In some cases, added "Notes" complete the Series Descriptions. Series I and II are the records of the Vice Presidents, Communications Group: Frances Jackson Dover and Jared Joynt. Series III to XI contain the records of the Public Relations Division. The records of the Media Division can be found in Series XII to XIV, with Culture Division records in Series XV to XXII. An artificial series of publications, cultural historic items and other ephemera concludes the Series Descriptions. The records of the Communications Group are "multiple media," but the vast majority of the material is textual. Photo prints have been enclosed in acid-free enclosures and remain with their original files; oversize material (blueprints and plans) have been removed from their original files and placed in appropriate oversize storage. Notes have been added to indicate where this has been done. Listings of all oversize material from each series have been placed at the end of the "File Listing" section for each Series. Videos, sound recordings, film and computer diskettes may also be found in some of the Series. No special conservation measures have been taken for these media at this time. The main conservation problem in these records was that of facsimile documents. All "faxed" documents have been photocopied for the purposes of preservation. Where possible, newspaper clippings have also been photocopied for preservation purposes.
