Scope and content

The series consists of documents produced in the day-to-day managing of the Society. These records were created by various bodies within the Zoological Society including most prominently, the Executive Committee, the Project Committee and the president. They reflect the mandate and creation of the Society through by-laws and letters patent incorporating, and the operations of the Society including meeting minutes and notices, correspondence, reports, financial records, member information, event and project planning documents, and donations. Newspaper advertisements and published articles on the Society or its activities have also been gathered and documented. Correspondence records are primarily with the Society president, but also contain member and guest speaker correspondence with the Executive Committee. The Project Committee administrative records deal largely with field trip planning and associated communications to members. The series also contains the administrative records of the Zoological Society of Canada (1969-2011), which contain the same types of documents.
Notably, this series contains correspondence with Prime Minister’s Jean Chrétien and Brian Mulroney (MSG1164.c2.f2 and MSG1164.c4.f11).
