Histoire administrative

In 1973, five Saskatoon women applied for and received an Opportunities For Youth grant. With little background in either research or women's history, they produced and published Herstory: The Canadian Women's Calendar, a calendar documenting the history and achievements of Canadian women. Since then, 50 women have at some time been members of the Saskatoon Women's Calendar Collective; the calendar's 20th edition was published in 1995. When the Collective started, the field of women's history was relatively new: Herstory quickly became, and has remained, a Canadian best-seller, despite a two year hiatus (1983-1984) when one publisher's failure demanded a lengthy search for a new publisher. Each calendar contains profiles of individual women or women's groups, essays on issues, or highlights the work of an author or artist.

Historique de la conservation

The majority of the records were stored as a unit in the home of one of the Collective's members. However, individual members have not always transferred their working files to the Collective's archives; much of the material can be assumed to be with past Collective members.

Portée et contenu

This fonds contains material documenting both the administrative history of the Saskatoon Women's Calendar Collective (SWCC), and the Collective's research work in Canadian women's history. The administrative records include minutes, financial records, and correspondence; the research data includes newspaper clippings, articles, notes on interviews, and correspondence. Additionally, this fonds contains a substantial number of photographs, including portraits of individual women and documentary images.
