Biographical history

Born in Benito, Manitoba on September 13, 1950, James Michael Pitsula grew up in Saskatchewan and graduated from Campbell Collegiate in Regina in 1968. He obtained a B.A.(Hons.) in history from the University of Saskatchewan in 1972, then studied at York University in Toronto, earning his M.A. in 1973 and Ph.D. in 1979. He lectured in history at the University of Winnipeg, 1977-1978, and at the University of Regina, 1978-1979. Dr. Pitsula was appointed Assistant professor of History at the University of Regina in 1979 and was promoted to full professor in 1994. He has published several articles and reviews in Canadian social history and is the author of three books including 'An Act of Faith: The Early Years of Regina College' (Regina: Canadian Plains Research Centre, 1988).

Custodial history

Scope and content

Fonds consists of questionnaires, correspondence, notes, photographs, and research files generated by James M. Pitsula pertaining to his book, 'An Act of Faith: The Early Years of Regina College', 1984-1986. Of particular interest are questionnaires completed by former Regina College students recording their memories of the institution, as well as correspondence with some alumni. The research files contain notes, copies of articles, newspaper clippings, and photocopies of archival documents housed at the University of Regina Archives, the Saskatchewan Archives Board, and elsewhere. Although the research occurred in 1984-1986, the time-span under study was 1911-1939, and the copied documents and photographs originate from that period. The photos are copy negatives of originals in the collection of the University of Regina Archives. Most, but not all, were used in the book
