Photographs series

Series consists mainly of photographs of John Norris, Barbara Norris, and other family members. Several photos relate to images used by Norris during lectures or in scholarly articles. Photographs are arranged in chronological order.

Political Career series

Series consists of notes, speeches, scripts, newspaper clippings, and other documentation related to John Norris’ candidacy for the Provincial Election in 1963.

Research Materials and Publications series

Series consists of notes taken supporting various publications, such as those on the British economy during the 1800s, cholera, and the plague. Series also consists of copies of several Norris publications.

Many of the research notes are without dates; however, it can likely be inferred that the messages regarding cholera were made in support of his unpublished work on cholera that remained unfinished at the time of his death in 2010.

Also, some notes that might have influenced his publications have been included in the Teaching series as they were described as lectures and conferences.

Teaching series

Series consists of notes for lectures and seminars given in various classes, continuing education, and conferences; course materials, papers from colleagues and students; and documentation related to Norris’ role on multiple committees and boards within UBC and as the Director of the Department of the History of Medicine and Science.
