  • Fonds

The final full daily entry is dated February 28, 1946. Following that, entries record major events, such as moving to Quebec in summer of 1949 or convocation, with acquaintances made and Tetley's descriptions and impressions of them, often with names and contact information. Other events noted include Provincial Congress at Quebec, September 1950; "Soirée à la Marine," February 10, 1950; summer in the navy in England, 1951; Boy Scout Campaign, February 1952. Final entries are undated, but the journal appears to end in 1952.

Maxwell Cohen Fonds

  • CA MUA MG1026
  • Fonds
  • 1923-1976

Fonds consists primarily of Cohen’s records of his professional and administrative work at McGill, with some materials on his own research and publishing interests. His university administrative files (1948-1975), while concerned largely with the business of Senate and its committees, also contains a full record of Cohen's work on the McGill brief to the Royal Commission on Bi-culturalism and Bilingualism (1963-1967). Also noteworthy are extensive files on the organization of the McGill conferences on world affairs, industry and government, and the future of competition in Canada (1958-1972), and on student unrest (1960-1970).

Faculty of Law administrative and teaching files (1953-1957) contain notes, memoranda, reports and correspondence concerning admissions, staff relations, curriculum, and study materials. Special emphasis is given to the files on the Institutes of Comparative and International Law, and Air and Space Law, and to Cohen's teaching records for his seminars on international law and government control of business (1966-1973).

Files of correspondence and reports document Cohen's involvement in various professional organizations, legal (e.g. bar associations, Canadian Association for Comparative Law, Canadian Foundation for Education in World Law), educational (e.g. associations of law teachers and law schools, CAUT, MAUT), and international (e.g. ILO). There are also files on conferences concerning legal teaching, international law and business law. The period covered is 1952-1975.

Subject files of notes, correspondence, and Cohen's essays and addresses illustrate his interest in diplomacy, international relations, trade unions and industrial arbitration, family law, and civil liberties. Also included are some of his earlier writings (1923-1945) on Canadian business in the pre-war and World War II era, on international relations during the War, as well as on famous criminal cases in Western Canada. Most of the papers documenting Maxwell Cohen's national and international career are held by the Public Archives of Canada.

In addition, there are approximately 25 books, journals and published articles related to Law and which belonged to, or were written by, Maxwell Cohen. The items contain dedications and/or have been annotated.

The three series of files are as follows:
I. Papers primarily relating to the administrative and governing bodies of McGill University, particularly the Senate.
II. Papers arising out of administrative and teaching duties in the Law Faculty, and
Ill. Papers documenting professional activities and interests, including associations and conferences. Included are files raised in connection with various writings (originally received with Accession 162).

Francis Reginald Scott Fonds

  • CA MUA MG 2004
  • Fonds
  • 1919-1985

Fonds consists of photocopies of speeches delivered at Scott's 70th birthday celebration dinner (1969) and of notes for his courses in Admiralty Law and Maritime Law and Carriers (ca 1940) can be found here. The microfilmed copies of Scott's papers are divided into two series. Series One, 1919-1958, contains only that material written or collected by Scott before 1958 and it is completely integrated in terms of his political, legal and literary activities. Series Two was created in 1959 when he moved to a new office in the Faculty of Law. This series contains material primarily originating from 1959 to 1978; however, some material has been brought forward from earlier files for use or review in relation to more recent activities. Also included are microfilmed copies of his scrapbooks, 1924-1974, documenting Scott's career since the 1920s. Two audio cassettes record Scott’s memorial service, which was held on February 18, 1985.
