Administrative history

McGill University began offering a full-time studies in Urban Planning in 1947 as part of an interdisciplinary Master's program in 1947. An autonomous program was established in 1972, leading eventually to the establishment of the School of Urban Planning. It is currently housed within McGill's Faculty of Engineering, along with the School of Architecture.

Custodial history

The collection was accumulated over the years beginning in the late 1950s by the McGill University School of Urban Planning to provide pedagogical material and to serve as a historic record of the shaping of urban and rural landscapes across Canada, as well as some cities in the United States (notably New York and Boston). The collection was given to the Blackader-Lauterman Library of Architecture and Art in 2001.

Scope and content

The collection consists of reports and plans for urban and rural areas from all provinces of Canada and some international cities, including Boston, New York, Chicago, France, and London, dating from the late 1950s to the 1990s. Most of the material consists of plans and reports for future land-uses that are revised, usually every decade. It also includes regulations for these areas, such as zoning. Some reports deal with sectorial policies such as housing, transportation, conservation, or environmental protection.
