Biographical history

Florence Philpott was a caseworker, community organizer, educator, and a leader in the field of Canadian social work. She was born in 1909 in Halton County, Ontario and earned a teacher's diploma from Northwestern University, Chicago in 1930, as well as a diploma in social work from the University of Toronto's School of Social Work in 1932. During her career, Philpott worked for various social service agencies in Hamilton, Ottawa, Winnipeg and Toronto. She was the Executive Director of the Toronto Social Service Council (1948-1963), and possessed a national profile in her field, contributing to special projects and to local and national committees and boards. She belonged to a network of women who were instrumental in formulating social welfare policies and creating leadership roles in the field of social work for Canadian women. Florence Philpott passed away in Toronto, Ontario in 1992.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of correspondence, curriculum vitae, ephemera, memoranda, newsletters, selected newspaper clippings, a photograph, and a scrapbook that Philpott selected and retained as mementos. She also collected her peers’ correspondence concerning their nomination of Philpott for the Order of Canada. Fonds also contains biographical information about Philpott included by Professor Ken Moffatt of York University. The fonds is arranged chronologically, an order imposed on the fonds by a graduate student working for Professor Moffatt.
