History Biographical: 

Chapleau IRSThe St. John's Indian Residential School operated in Chapleau, Ontario from 1907-1948. The original residential school in Chapleau was operated by the Anglican Diocese of Moosonee from 1907 to 1920. In 1920 the school's administration was taken over by the Department of Indian Affairs. The school was built to accommodate 40 students, and in 1919 it was expanded to accommodate 45 students. The residential school was located on 153 acres on the east side of Chapleau near the Nebskwashi River. This original school building burned down on June 27, 1926. The original Residential School site in Chapleau was never developed and is now part of the forest.

In 1914 a new location of 1,184 acres was bought from the Ontario government for one dollar an acre. However, the new location was far from the town of Chapleau and did not have convenient road access. In 1920 a new 2,142 acre site, closer to town, was purchased.The new two-storey school building designed to accommodate 100 students was built at a cost of $89,000. The school operated at capacity until it closed on July 1, 1948. Many students were transferred to the Shingwauk Indian Residential School or the Moose Factory Indian Residential School. The school property was purchased by Nick Gionet for $7,000 in 1948 and eventually all of the school buildings were demolished, this site is now a small residential subdivision.

Collection comprises one photo album with images of activities and students at the St. John's Indian Residential School (Chapleau, Ont.).

History Biographical: 

Gordon IRS signThe Anglican Church of Canada established a day school on Gordon’s Reserve just north of Regina, in 1876. In 1888, it was expanded to provide housing to students attending the School. In 1929 the original School building was destroyed by fire. It was rebuilt, but problems with water supply and maintenance led to its being closed for much of the time between 1947 and 1953.

Apart from the local children from Gordon’s Reserve, students attended the School from a wide area in Saskatchewan, with Gordon's often acting as the overflow School from other Residential Schools. In 1969, the government took full control over the school from the Anglican church, and continued to operate as a residential school until its closure in 1996. The Gordon Residential School was the last school to be closed in Canada. The School building was subsequently torn down after its closure.

Scope Content: 

Collection comprises photographs and newsletters of students and activities at the Gordon Indian Residential School in Punnichy, Saskatchewan. The materials were collected by Pamela Handley (nee Weald) during her time working as a junior girls supervisor at Gordon's Residential School in the 1959-1960 school year.

History Biographical: 

Alanna Frances Rose Bondar, PhD (1968-2014) was a well known eco-feminist poet and tenured professor at Algoma University. She was recognized by her academic peers as a cutting edge researcher and scholar in the emerging genre of literary eco-criticism; which revisions our connections within biotic communities.  Bondar was the daughter of Aldona and Arthur Bondar. 

Bondar received her Ph.D. in English from Memorial University of Newfoundland (2003); and her MA in English and Creative Writing from the University of New Brunswick, where her advisor was the Governor-General’s Award and Griffin Poetry Prize winning poet and writer, Dr. Don McKay. Her undergraduate degree was from Western University. 

Bondar’s Ph. D. dissertation is entitled "Greening the green space: exploring the emergence of Canadian ecological literature through ecofeminist and ecocritical perspectives". Her areas of teaching included 20th century literature and critical theory; Canadian literature; American Literature; 20th Century Poetry; Magic(al) Realism; Gothic Literature and theory; Minority Writing; Women's Literature; Art and Text; Film and film theory; Creative Writing, and others. Each year Bondar’s students prepared the Algoma University’s only ongoing journal, Algoma Ink, from conception to finished product under her supervision. 

In 2012, Bondar launched her first full length prose poetry monograph, "There are many ways to die while travelling in Peru" (Your Scrivener Press, 2011), before a full house at the Art Gallery of Algoma in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.  She as a founding member of The Association for Literature, Environment, and Culture in Canada (ALECC).

For her friends and colleagues, she hosted annual “Pisces Mardi Gras” and “Love Your Libra” parties, which knit the university community together more tightly. 

Bondar always made extra efforts to welcome new colleagues to these gatherings and often invited newcomers to the north to her family’s cottage on Lake Huron. She has also performed with The Hinter Brane Project, an experimental jazz/spoken word group of faculty and former students. From this group, the current collaborative project, Threshold became possible and promises to be an intriguing walk through visual fields of art amongst sound-fields of spoken word, music, experimental music, and Lake Superior voices.  An accomplished quilter, sewer, potter and swimmer, Alanna was also an ardent gardener and knitter.  She was thrilled to be included in the Art Gallery’s garden tour in 2013. 

Alanna passed away peacefully on Friday, August 8, 2014, in the company of her loved ones.

Following her death, the Alanna Bondar Memorial Book Prize for the Environmental Humanities and Creative Writing was established by The Association for Literature, Environment, and Culture in Canada / L’Association pour la literature, l’environment et la culture au Canada (ALECC). In honour of Alanna, a cash prize of $500 is adjudicated by an ALECC committee and awarded every two years at the ALECC biennial conference. In 2016 Algoma Unviersity dedicated a portion of its campus as the Piazza Alanna in honour of Dr. Alanna Bondar.

Scope Content: 

Fonds is comprised of material documenting Dr. Alanna Bondar's work as an eco-feminist poet and tenured professor at Algoma University.

The Algoma Herbarium was founded in the late 1960’s by botany faculty at Algoma College, currently Algoma University (AU). The herbarium contains over 2,000 plant specimens and is housed at the university’s main campus in the Essar Convergence Centre labs, Sault Sainte Marie, Ontario.

The AU herbarium is operated and maintained by student interns and volunteers, and thus functions primarily as an educational tool, with many specimens being donated by the courses taught at the university. In addition to donations from AU students, the herbarium has also accepted specimens from faculty collections, such as the Antunes Lab. The AU herbarium contains over 80 years of data, with its oldest specimen dating to 1940. The majority of the collection represents species from the Algoma district in Northern Ontario.

This archive contains photos and written records of the specimens comprising the AU herbarium collection. These data have been made available for the purpose of completing research projects in fields such as conservation, invasive species management, and genome sequencing. Please direct any inquiries to Shannon Rowell-Garvon (Shannon.rowell-garvon@algomau.ca), who currently manages the herbarium and supervises all interns and volunteers.
