Arrangement

Explanation of arrangement and numbering system used in the Zahava Hanan fonds:

Zahava Hanan originally donated the papers in this collection to Carleton University so that students in Dr. Carman Bickerton's 1995-1996 History 500: Public History graduate seminar could study first hand her dispute with Esso Resources Canada Ltd. over pollution on her Rumsey Ranch resulting from activities at their Quirk Creek sour gas plant. The following summer, a group of students known as the Carleton University History Collaborative prepared the papers for scanning by assigning numbers reflecting the box, file or binder and document position of every item in the collection in the order received from Ms. Hanan. They produced an annotated listing of the documents that were scanned and also an overview essay called "Remembering Rumsey Ranch: The Pollution of a Cattle Ranch in the Alberta Foothills, 1974-1995" that was presented to a Canadian studies confernece in London, England in the fall of 1996. The listing and essay were saved onto a CD-ROM along with some 3000 scanned documents from the collection with the intention that researchers would be able to search the documents using Adobe Reader. After problems were identified with the search process, Dr. Bickerton's 2000-2001 History 500: Public History graduate seminar worked closely with Gayle Rooke to make the documents more searchable and produced a second, more successful CD-ROM (see M-9243-111).

In 2007, Zahava Hanan decided to transfer the collection to the Glenbow Archives in the belief that the papers would be more accessbile in a public archives facility. In spite of the somewhat random order of the collection as received, the decision was made to retain the order and numbering system devised by the History Collaborative in 1996 because of the existence of the CD-ROM of scanned documents with its very useful annotated listing. The listing has been printed (see M-9243-111), as has the student essay (see M-9243-112), but please consult an archivist for access to the documents that were scanned.
