Records include oral history interviews (audio cassettes and transcripts), research notes, clippings, a significant and extensive number of photograph and letter collections passed down through generations of Finnish Canadians, diaries, correspondence, publication drafts, academic and professorial notes, microfilm of Finnish language newspapers published in Canada and archival records, financial records of Finnish-Canadian organizations such as newspapers and post-World War II relief funding bodies, scrapbooks, photocopies of rare and unusual documents such as two volumes of a Soviet register of Finnish War Crimes, a list of persons found in the mass grave at Karhumaki, and Soviet lists of North American Finns who journeyed to Karelia to help build a socialist utopia there, academic and professorial files, publicity files, files pertaining to her work with the School of Women's Studies, and her own papers as a university student. The fonds also includes letters written by Lindstrom as a newly-arrived teenaged immigrant to Canada to her best friend in Finland; many of these letters were published in Finnish with English translation in 'Letters from an immigrant teenager' in 2012.

XV Olympic Winter Games, Marketing Group fonds

  • CA ccg ccg-2064
  • Fonds
  • 1976-1988, predominant 1982-1988

The records of the Marketing Group are "multiple media" in nature, although they are predominantly textual which includes 10 programmes, 9 postcards, 3 newsletters, 1 bulletin and 1 musical score. The oversize material includes 160 plans (venue plans and site plans), three charts, two posters and one map. The Marketing Group records, particularly in the licencing series, also includes cultural historic items (or artifacts) such as product samples, graphics samples and souvenir samples. Wherever possible, smaller items/samples have been placed into acid-free enclosures and kept within the originating file. However, the larger, more awkward items (buttons, pins, etc.) have been separated out into their own file folders directly following the originating file. As in the case of oversize items, notes have been added to indicate when an item has been removed from the originating file. In all cases, cultural historic items have been noted in the file lists in the printed inventory. See the conservation note below for more information on the care of these records. Some files from the licencing Program (Series II in the printed inventory) have been restricted because they contained personal and/or company credit information. These records may be viewed with the permission of Archives management. Other documents, such as reports and correspondence, were originally designated as "confidential," but have not been restricted since the confidential nature of the material had relevance only during the active life of the Marketing Group. The Marketing Group records consist of over 21 linear meters of material, which have been arranged and described into ten series, with some of these series further divided into sub series.
