Beschrijving

Geschiedenis

MUNFLA was established by the Senate of Memorial University in 1968 to house materials that had been accumulating since 1962 when American folklorist Herbert Halpert joined the University faculty. Today about two-thirds of new collections are by students in the undergraduate and graduate Folklore programs at Memorial, the other third from professional researchers in Folklore and other fields, local broadcasters and other interested depositors.

Geografische en culturele context

Primarily Newfoundland and Labrador.

Records management and collecting policies

MUNFLA is the major repository for collected and recorded material in the fields of folklore, folklife, oral history and related aspects of culture from Newfoundland and Labrador. It accepts collections in all media, including manuscripts, microforms, records, tapes, photographs, films, videos and electronic media. MUNFLA is recognized as the leading sound archive in the province.

Notable collections include the field notebooks of Maud Karpeles (1929); the taped song collections of Kenneth S. Goldstein (1970s and 1980s) and MacEdward Leach (1950s); CBC Radio's Fisheries Broadcast; the Herbert Halpert and John Widdowson collections of folklore (1960s and 1970s) and the Lorne Russwurm international collection of recorded country music.
