Alexander Stephen fonds

  • RBSC-ARC-1532
  • Fonds
  • [1892-1963]

The fonds consists of records pertaining to Stephen's literary work and his social concerns, including the Canadian depression of the 1930s and the world rise of fascism. The fonds also includes two scrapbooks containing letters, clippings, photographs (including Norman Bethune) and related materials. Another scrapbook (1928-1963) was completed by Stephen's wife after his death.

Stephen, A.M. (Alexander Maitland)

Manuscripts

Typescripts were fastened together into folders. Although they have been unfastened, the original order has been kept. Any item that is not a manuscript will be described in the order in which it was fastened. All manuscripts are typescripts with the exception of the item in box 1, folder 7. Plays in dramatic form have been listed as poetry.

Fortunes of War

A handwritten short story placed in a scrapbook by his wife. Also, the scrapbook contains a critique of A .M . Stephen by his wife and clippings taken from the San Francisco Chronicle relating to drug addiction and world affairs, February, 1967.

Western Canada Tour Scrapbook

This scrapbook was initially included with the A.M. Pound papers. It was felt that since the scrapbook was about A.M. Stephen (compiled by him, and after his death, by his wife, Irene Stephen) it should be included with the Stephen papers. The scrapbook covers the time from 1928, when Stephen made his much publicized tours of Western Canada, to 1963, when Stephen's last edition of poems (compiled by his wife) was published. The scrapbook includes newspaper articles, book reviews, letters (mainly to Mrs. Stephen), and other assorted memorabilia. (Note written by Robert Gore.)

Printed Material

Printed material has been glued into both scrapbooks. The pages have been numbered and general notes in each item's record refer to page numbers in the scrapbooks. The brochures located in folder 02-02 were advertisements for Stephen's publications.
