Name of creator
The Canadian Liberation Movement was active between 1969 and 1976. A left-wing organization dedicated to the overthrow of capitalism and American imperialism, it had its headquarters in Toronto and branches in many Canadian cities. Its publishing arm, NC Press, was responsible for New Canada, the organization's official newspapers, as well as for a number of books. The Canadian poet, Milton Acorn, was associated with the Movement.
Scope and content
The fonds contains C.L.M. circulars, C.L.M. administrative files, NC Press and New Canada files, C.L.M. audio cassettes, material received, subject files, and publications received, realia (flags), typescripts, notes, posters, news clippings and other printed materials. The fonds contains a considerable amount of trade union materials.
Immediate source of acquisition
The fonds was acquired from three different sources. In the summer of 1983 a large number of files were obtained from Larry Michailuc. They were augmented, in the summer of 1986, by a substantial donation from Caroline Perly (Walker). The Michailuc/Perly material was interfiled to form one accrual. Late in 1985 a small amount of material was donated by Terry Barker and forms the second accrual.
There have been three accruals. The first and third accruals have been combined and arranged into the following series: C.L.M. Circulars; C.L.M. Administrative Files; NC Press and New Canada files; C.L.M. Audio Cassettes; Material Received, Subject Files, and Publications Received; Realia (flags). The second accrual consists of typescripts, notes, posters, news clippings and other printed materials. The fonds contains a considerable amount of trade union materials.
