June Callwood - Her Legacy at Library and Archives Canada

OTTAWA, April 26, 2007 - Library and Archives Canada mourned the passing of June Callwood last April 14, 2007. Author of 30 books, founder of Casey House and dozens of other social organizations, Callwood's passion and activism enriched Canadian society and public life. Librarian and Archivist Ian E. Wilson said, "June Callwood championed the disadvantaged and disenfranchised both in the media and in the trenches of social work, giving voice to victims and those on the margins of Canadian society."

However, she also left a rich archival legacy for Canadians. Library and Archives Canada is the proud home of her personal archive, which ranges from manuscripts of her books and correspondence with political decision-makers, to records of women prisoners, prostitutes, and abused women and children. "She did not shy away from controversy so her records reflect the hot-button issues of the past four decades," Wilson remarked. "The women's movement, child poverty, prisoner's rights, censorship, teenage pregnancy, prostitution, AIDS, homosexuality, digital copyright, and freedom of speech—all are documented in her collection at Library and Archives Canada."

Including manuscripts, photographs, art, video and sound recordings, and digital records, the June Callwood collection is essential for understanding the Canadian response to these contested issues.
