Biographical history

Jacques Cambay worked to document the history of stained glass in Quebec churches, travelling across the province to photograph and otherwise document stained-glass windows and other works.

Custodial history

The Jacques Cambay Collection was purchased in 1986 by Concordia University for the Slide Library, later known as the Digital Image and Slide Collection, now known as the Visual Collections Repository (VCR). Dr. Laurier Lacroix was involved in the acquisition of the collection. The materials were transferred from the VCR to the Library's Special Collections May 23, 2018.

Scope and content

The Jacques Cambay Collection is the result of Jacques Cambay ‘s research into stained-glass in Quebec, and the contributions of artists working in stained-glass to the Province's artistic heritage. The collection documents stained-glass windows existing in Quebec churches during the 1970s and 1980s. It also includes information pertaining to select churches. In addition, the collection documents the works of a number of stained glass artists, including Guido Nincheri, Charles William Kelsey, and Flavien St. Pierre, and the stained-glass studio "Canadian Pittsburgh Industries Limited" (C.P.I.). Importantly, it contains oral history interviews conducted by Cambay with artists working in stained glass.

The Jacques Cambay collection is composed mostly of photographic materials in form of prints and slides, but also audio cassettes and textual records. As textual materials, the collection consists in pamphlets, newspaper clippings, correspondence, extracts from reference works, and handwritten notes. An index of Quebec churches with stained glass windows completes the collection.
