Call Number: Tc 43

Title: Richard E. Bennett fonds.

Dates: 1980-1989.

Extent: 5 audio-cassettes.

Biographical sketch: Richard E. Bennett was the archivist at the University of Manitoba from 1978 to 1997. From time to time he recorded interviews with notable people in order to preserve their knowledge and history.

Custodial history: The cassettes that comprise this fonds were originally arranged as separate fonds titled "Prof. J. D. Mundie Oral History" (TC 43) and "Anne Marriott" (TC 77). They were amalgamated to form TC 43, the Richard E. Bennett fonds, based on their shared provenance; however, they can still be found in their original locations.

Scope and content: The fonds consists of five audio cassettes of interviews conducted by University of Manitoba archivist Richard E. Bennett. Interviewees include: C.E. L'Ami (January 31, 1980); Margaret Hamilton Bach who speaks about the psychical research of Thomas Glendenning Hamilton (November 26, 1980); John D. Mundie, professor of business administration, and dean of the Asper School of Business who speaks about the Faculty of Management at the University of Manitoba (November 25, 1986); and poet Anne Marriott (1913-1997) who is interviewed at her home in North Vancouver, B.C., (February 14, 1989).
