Harold Spence-Sales Fonds

  • CA CAC 97
  • Fonds
  • Approximately 1939 - 2005, 2009, 2012

The Harold Spence-Sales fonds at McGill’s Canadian Architecture Collection primarily contains project records related to Harold Spence-Sales' career as an architect and urban planner. The bulk of the records pertain to projects that Harold Spence-Sales worked on as well as corresponding financial, administrative and office records.

The fond heavily documents projects that Harold Spence-Sales worked on during the 1970s-1980s in British Columbia and in Quebec during the 1940s-1960s. Other projects that Harold Spence-Sales worked on across Canada and internationally appear intermittently throughout the fonds. The Oromocto community planning project that Harold Spence-Sales worked on from 1955-1958 in New Brunswick is particularly well documented. Harold Spence-Sales designed Oromocto to be a military town. Before He transformed Oromocto into a military town it was a defunct 19th century shipbuilding town. The Oromocto project is considered one of Harold Spence-Sales most important urban-town planning projects.

Apart from administrative, office and project records, the fonds also contains records that relate to Harold Spence-Sales professional activities outside of his work as an architect and urban planner. For example, awards and honors that he received and records related to his involvement in architectural and urban planning associations. Additional professional activities include: his involvement in creating exhibitions, curating architectural-themed magazines and periodicals as well as copies of publications that he worked on solo and in collaboration with John Bland.

The fonds also contains fourteen boxes of Harold Spence-Sales personal records. The personal records primarily cover Harold Spence-Sales interest in art, creative pursuits, family activities, family genealogy, personal finances, last will and testaments as well as his decline in health and his death. Within the fourteen boxes that have been cataloged as personal records, there are also materials related to Harold Spence-Sales professional activities. For example, awards that Harold Spence-Sales received and records related to exhibitions and artistic projects that he worked on.

Gordon Edwards Fonds

  • CA MUA MG 4246
  • Fonds
  • 1962-2004

The fonds chiefly reflects Gordon Edwards' professional practice, both in consortium with various firms and as an individual practitioner, and also reflects his teaching career at McGill University and the Université de Montreal, however there are some files of a personal nature. Correspondence, lighting design proposals, and their accompanying documentation (such as architectural plans) are included. A majority of the files representing his professional projects contain the same types of documents: architectural plans, lighting fixture schedules, illuminance grids, and manufacturer's literature and brochures. In addition, there are some miscellaneous photographs both of professional and personal nature, negatives, and fabric samples.

The correspondence is both personal and business-related; most of it deals with his practice and various projects and proposals, but there is also correspondence relating to legal and banking matters. There are letters from Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau and Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. There is also correspondence from noted architect Moshe Safdie and Canadian War Museum architect Raymond Moriyama.

Plans include lighting designs for the Supreme Court of Canada, the Outremont Library, and the McCord Museum expansion project.

John Schreiber Fonds

  • CA CAC 28
  • Fonds
  • 1950-2001; predominant 1950-1996

The fonds contains the majority of the drawings and papers of Montreal architect and landscape architect John Schreiber, who was a professor in the School of Architecture at McGill from 1953 to 1987. These documents constitute a rich treasure of original design work, expressed in draughtsmanship of great virtuosity. John Schreiber’s work is an outstanding example of the contribution to Canadian architecture and landscape architecture of a generation of “brilliant Europeans” who, leaving that war-shattered continent in the late forties and fifties, found an appreciative and fertile ground for their talents and ambitions in Canada. The two hundred and thirty four projects represented in the Schreiber fonds span half a century of work and are documented in more than four thousand plans and drawings, hundreds of photographs and close to six linear metres of textual files.
