Scope and content

The fonds consists of a taped interview conducted by Mr. John Hardy (of the York University Archives) with John Conway together with transcriptions of the interview and some subsequent correspondence between the two (1975). In addition, there are copies of correspondence between Conway and the editor of the Globe and Mail concerning an article in the paper and a copy of a 'Report to the Board of Governors on the college system at York University,' (May 1970) by Conway. For the Ontario Advisory Committee on Confederation there are verbatim minutes of meetings (1965-1970), as well as background reading and reports, memoranda and resolutions prepared by and for the committee. The prepared papers discuss economic, cultural, and constitutional issues. The background material consists of published proceedings of federal-provincial conferences (Confederation for Tomorrow), material submitted to royal commissions (Bilingualism and Biculturalism), newspaper articles, articles published in academic journals, government reports and related material.
