The collection held by Concordia Records Management and Archives provides information on an important collection of ethnographical and archeological objects, mainly from the Cooper Inuits of Coronation Gulf, that Captain Joseph F. Bernard had gathered between 1916 and 1920. The assemblage was known as the Bernard Arctic Collection, but also as Bernard Eskimo Collection, Bernard Collection, or Bernard Inuit Collection. In 1921, Captain Bernard loaned his collection to Loyola College. He donated it in 1924 for a proposed College museum. The museum never materialized, and in 1947 Loyola College donated part of the collection to the Arctic Institute of North America in Montreal (the Institute moved to Calgary in 1976) and part to Cambridge University’s Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. Other parts of the Bernard Arctic Collection were donated in 1991 to the Canadian Museum of Civilization (now the Canadian Museum of History) and in 1993 to Loyola High School.
The material includes a photograph of Captain Joseph Bernard and photocopies of the following documents:
The Loyola College file on the Bernard Arctic Collection, 1921–1947 (12 documents totalling 15 pp.),
Joseph F. Bernard’s correspondence to Father Edward Devine, S. J. and Father William H. Hingston, S. J, 1924–1959 (15 documents totalling 32 pp.),
“Bernard Eskimo Collection,” a copy of a history attributed to Father William H. Hingston, S. J., ca. 1940 (9 pp.),
Report on the Bernard Arctic Collection by Susan Moogk [for the Cambridge University Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology] (16 pp.) 1984.
The purpose of the Oral History-Montreal Studies program is to document the history of the Montreal metropolitan area. Sponsored by Shell Canada, the program funds projects which make accessible the oral history of Greater Montreal, through systematic interviewing of leaders and witnesses of the labour, industrial, cultural, social, religious, and ethnic scene since World War II. The project is administered by the Concordia University Library.
The collection provides information on the history of Greater Montreal. It consists of recorded interviews of individuals as well as some transcripts and application forms for some of the projects. The projects are:
