        Andrij Baziuk collection
        PR3625 · Collection · 1922-1951

        The collection consists of films used in an itinerant picture show that toured through rural Saskatchewan, particularly through Ukrainian communities around Regina, during the 1930s-50s. The films include episodes of popular series such as Tarzan of the Apes, Dick Tracy, Krazy Kat, and Hopalong Cassidy; full-length genre films including Westerns and melodramas; comedy shorts; compilations of trailers for Hollywood features; episodes of Canadian Movietone News for 1950-51; a documentary about Inuit life in the 1940s; and two feature-length Ukrainian films that were made in North America. Both of these films were produced by Ukrainian-Canadian Vasile Avramenko. The first is entitled Cossacks in Exile (Zaporozhets za dunaem) (Edgar L. Ulmer, 1938), while the second is entitled Marusia (Leo Bulgakov, 1938). These films are in the Ukrainian language with English subtitles, were specifically made for the expatriate Ukrainian community in North America, and are rare examples of Ukrainian commercial filmmaking in North America.

        Many of the films are fragments of larger works, but it is unclear if the complete films were ever shown as part of the travelling picture show.

        The collection also contains a poster for Cossacks in Exile and an original cardboard box used to house one of the film reels.

        The slides show portraits of patients with and without their carvings and sculptures, art collections and pieces, Dr. Pfeiffer at his desk and work, and several pictures of paintings.

        There are two copies of 17 of the slides, with a copy each in two different tints (red and blue). There are also two blue-tinted photos of the inside of a sculpture and of a third painting. The slides also have different details that are highlighted based on the tint.

        The first box, with blue-tinted slides, was labeled “C. Campsell [sic] Hosp. with Harold Pfeiffer on Sunday March 25/3/56, Palm Sun.” The blue slides are on Pix-A-Color slides. The second box that these slides were donated in, with red-tinted slides, was labeled as “C. Campsell [sic] Hospital Continued 1956.” These slides are on Ansco Color slides. The photos were taken using a Leica III Pentax camera.

        PR0003.003SF.0007 · Series · [1938]-1990
        Part of Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI), Lacombe Canada fonds

        The series consists of recordings created in Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories and beyond the geographical limits of the Oblate Vice-Province of Mackenzie. The recordings were created primarily at institutions the Oblates established or lived in: churches, missions, and First Nations communities. The recordings were created, collected or acquired by the Oblates of the Vice-Province in the course of their administrative and evangelization activities, and therefore the themes of the recordings are wide-ranging. The records include a number of religious themes and document the personal thoughts and viewpoints of a number of Oblates and highlight First Nations cultures and languages. A large number of the records were created by Oblate researchers, likely Robert Le Meur (1920-1985), and Maurice Métayer (1914-1974), who served in the Vicariate of Mackenzie.

        Le Meur and Métayer conducted their own research and collaborated on various projects. They both served in various missions in the north, Le Meur from the 1940s to the 1980s, and Métayer, from the 1940s to the 1970s.

        Specifically, the Le Meur and the Métayer recordings relate to research conducted by them in the north. The priests sought information on the culture, lives, history and religion of the Indigenous peoples, and they recorded the interviews, songs and stories of their research, providing insight into the lives of the people of northern Canada. There is a vast wealth of their written research in the Oblate fonds as well, related to genealogies, grammars and published stories and other writings.

        Specifically, the records in this sound series consist of educational and historical themed material, recordings of masses, religious and secular ceremonies, lectures, sermons and religious commentaries, as well as radio broadcasts of songs, and recordings of stories and interviews. The stories, interviews and songs are often in First Nations languages, and English and French. Records are both created by amateurs, and professionally produced.
