Custodial history

Scope and content

The bulk of the records consist of course materials: lecture notes, and supporting documents such as case studies and regulations for courses on air law, particularly hijacking, and on the legal relationship between ICAO and the UN Secretariat. There are also several articles and talks delivered by Fitzgerald at conferences at Potsdam (1970) and elsewhere. Included are several versions of a lecture on multiculturalism in Quebec, ca. 1970. A small amount of correspondence, mainly with the Law Faculty is included.
