China Tour series

In 1978 James Thornton participated in an adult educators’ visit to the People’s Republic of China. Organized by UBC’s Adult Education Department and the Centre for Continuing Studies, the objective of the tour was to examine how the newly-formed Chinese Government after the fall of the “Gang of Four” would use forms of formal and informal adult education programs and professional training initiatives to repair China’s social fabric and revitalize economic structures devastated by the “cultural revolution”. Shortly after the UBC group arrived in Shanghai in the summer of 1978, they were joined by a group from the University of Alberta and then continued on a three-week tour of China.

This series includes 746 slides taken during the trip, a group photograph and a short description of the tour from Thornton’s autobiography. The slides have been removed from their original boxes and transferred into slide sleeves and put into file folders. The original descriptions from the slide boxes have been transferred to the file descriptions.

Photographic Material series

The Photographic Material series contains a large number of prints and negatives in both black and white and colour, as well as, a small amount of colour slides. These images document the structural development of the Civil and Mechanical Engineering Building as well as, presenting images of their original facilities on campus. Also finding photographic representation in this series are various student exhibits, events and research projects; departmental projects; faculty, staff and student composites and portraits; technological installations; student awards and competitions; social and intercollegiate events; class notes and visual aids; and press shots. As well, the photographic material presents different perspectives of student involvement both within the Department itself, and as part of the University as a whole. Finally, the images, along with the few accompanying pen and ink layout sketches, depict the process of photography itself within the Department.
The majority of photographs were found in a chronologically and numerically organized state located either within the envelopes of their corresponding negatives or else in sticky back photo albums. Those not housed in such a way were found loosely contained among the textual material within metal filing cabinets or cardboard boxes. The first 644 sets of photographic prints were found to have numerical identifiers (written in ink or pencil and located either on the print itself, the original envelope in which it was found or beneath or above its placement within sticky back albums). These numerical identifiers correspond directly to available negatives. The slides were found labeled in a topically organized state within plastic sleeves housed within ring binders.
Original numerical identifiers of both photographs and negatives span sequentially from #41 to #730.

Financial series

The UBC Press is financed in two ways: the operating overhead costs of the Press are supported by an annual budget from the university, which is granted to the Press in its capacity as a University Department. This financial relationship, which has continued since 1971, forms the most significant continuing portion of the university's support for the Press. The second portion of Press financing is a fund of Trust and other monies used for the production costs of the books published by the Press. In addition to a small, accumulated surplus, these funds come to the Press annually from earnings from permanent Trust funds, grants from the Canada Council, the University and private donors, and returns from the sales of Press books. In the past, it has been the university's policy that budgeting of the journals and yearbooks produced by the Press be financed separately with a self-balancing budget. Series consists of annual reports, interdepartmental memoranda, sales analyses, invoice overviews, year-end balance sheets, correspondence, minutes of meetings, journal vouchers, income statements and summaries of annual expenses.
