Festschrift for Bishop's University Summer School for Teachers

Series pertains to a proposal to publish a Festschrift to celebrate the 50th anniversary in 1981 of the Summer School for Teachers organized by the Graduate School of Education. To this end, Professor Alan Jones solicited contributions from several distinguished administrators and scholars, on topics related to the education of English-speaking Quebeckers, with particular reference to "mainland" Quebec. He envisaged publication by the Wilfrid Laurier University Press, which had published his monograph on the work of Lord Stanley of Alderly in support of public education in England.

His health began to fail while the contributions were being written, and his heavy teaching load left him no time for the very considerable task of editing and preparing the final text for publication. When he died, his files on the project were passed on to Christopher Nicholl, in the hope that someone could be found to complete the list of contributors and undertake the publication. Although this did not transpire, these papers serve as evidences of his support for the outreach from the university to the community through the summer schools.

Series includes notes and correspondence, in addition to essays by James Angrave, George W. Bancroft, Gary Caldwell, Paul Garnet, Wayne Hall, G. Arnold McArthur, Laurence Stott, and the text of an address given by Dr. Jeffrey Jefferis on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Summer School for Teachers (1981).
