Custodial history

The files of the Association had been gathered from various executive members, past and present, and sorted and arranged alphabetically in a filing cabinet by Bernadette Buckley under the supervision of Miss M. Garland through means of a grant in late 1984, and were installed in a newly acquired office in Southcott Hall.

Scope and content

The material consists of textual records of the functions and activities of the Association, including a collection of papers, articles, speeches, periodicals, brochures and reports relating to the various topics dealt with by the Association in its conferences and seminars, or forums attended by its executive members. A small number of photographs of senior citizen housing in Prince Edward Island is in the file relating to housing [9.02]. The alphabetical list of files as processed in 1984 is preserved in Appendix 1, but some material in the cabinet had not been included in that process. The material has been rearranged according to form and function, with weeding of duplicates. Some published material has been retained within the fonds as it relates directly to themes or topics of conferences or projects. Other material has been listed in appendices, and periodical material has been removed to the library of the Newfoundland Historical Society.

The bulk of the records come from the activities of Dr. Stella Burry, president 1975-79 and active executive member, Joyce Nevitt, president 1980-1, 1984-85, active executive member, chair of the education committee, and newsletter editor, and from Norman Pinhorn, treasurer 1980-82. The working file of Joyce Nevitt as president, and a binder compiled by two successive secretaries, Rev. J.F. Ayris and Ada Spencer, 1977-78, have been retained as samples of how the association operated. The material has been arranged in the following series: Series 1.00, Constitution; Series 2.00, Minutes; Series 3.00, Financial records; Series 4.00, Correspondence; Series 5.00, Working files of executive members; Series 6.00, Newsletters; Series 7.00, Conferences, workshops, seminars; Series 8.00, Reports, surveys, projects; Series 9.00, Topics; Series 10.00, Newspaper clippings. Appendices include file lists, non-NLAA conference papers, programmes; non-NLAA articles, papers; non-NLAA reports; non-NLAA speeches; Health & Welfare Canada. New Horizons; Health & Welfare Canada. Press releases etc. list of periodical holdings.
