Name of creator
he plans were retained by Dr. Rusted in his office at the Health Sciences Centre. They were kept outside of his main collection of materials (COLL-001) but were donated at the same time.
Scope and content
The plans provide a detailed look at the estimated and speculative development of Memorial University's new St. John's campus. They show proposed sites of buildings, parking lots, student residences, faculty living quarters, etc., all in relation to St. John's landmarks and locations. The Master Plan is at the back of the report: the text and drawings explain why the plan takes the form it does and shows how it may be transformed from a two-dimensional paper pattern to an actual place that once can inhabit and walk about. The sections examined in detail throughout the plans include: 1. The University and the City; 2. The Academic Brief; 3. The Topographical Study;4. The South Campus and the Junior Division; 5. The Building Pattern; 6. The Circulation System; 7. The Landscape Design; 8. The Schematic Master Plan; 9. The Main Block; 10. The Library; 11. Convocation Hall; 12. Physical Education; 13. University Theatre; 14. South Campus Link Block; 15. The Senior College; 16. Architectural Character.
Immediate source of acquisition
Plans were acquired from Dr. Ian Rusted in February 2000.
When the Memorial University Master Plans arrived at the Founders' Archives, there was some degree of order present. Materials were clearly labelled with original titles. This formed the framework for further arrangement and description of the collection. Maps were removed from the larger publications but have been retained in the same box.
