Part of MSVU Family Life Institute fonds
Series consists of correspondence between members of the Family Life Institute, as well as correspondence between the Institute and other corporate bodies. The series includes letters regarding employment, such as curriculum vitae records, as well as payment for offering services at the Family Life Institute. There are also letters between Sister Mary Olga McKenna and those who would present a topic of significance to the institute, such as ‘Living Together’ or Adolescent Behavior.’ The letters also occasionally only thank the participant for attending. Rather than offering payment. Some letters in this series were created in response to earlier conversations, such as the interview potential of future employees at the Institute. The series also contains correspondence between Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada and Sister Mary Olga McKenna regarding the availability of educational booklets. Other letters discuss speeches by Margaret Mead, reflections on participation in the Family Life Institute of summer 1973, and receipts indicating membership in receiving copies of the Transaction magazine. There are also several incomplete letters addressed to various corporate and government bodies, such as the Department of Public Health and Ortho Pharmaceutical (Canada) Ltd. The series also includes letters that confirm the receipt of demonstration kits from the ‘Growing Up’ series of lectures.
