Addiction Research Foundation fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1910-1998, predominant 1951-1996

Fonds consists of records obtained or created by ARF between 1951 and 1998 regarding the administration and operations of the Foundation as well as the pursuit of ARF goals in terms of research, treatment and rehabilitation services, prevention programs and services, and public awareness and knowledge. [ARF goals per "The Addiction Research Foundation at work" -- Toronto : ARF, 1971]. Although original order was maintained as much as possible, the Archives physically consolidated distinct groupings such as annual reports, research reports, and leases. Since original order often dictates meaning, it was decided to keep the physical order and in some cases to impose an intellectual order by assigning the records to subseries and narrower groupings which best seemed to represent the different creators’ intents. Fonds consists of the following series: Series 01, subseries 01 to 11 : ARF Executive Office Series Series 02, subseries 12 : Time Capsule Series Series 03, subseries 13 to 20 : H. David Archibald Series Series 04, subseries 21 to 22 : ARF People and Programs Photographic Series
