Administrative history

The Basilian Fathers of Saskatoon, Roman Catholic priests of the Congregation of St. Basil of Toronto came to Saskatoon in 1936 at the request of Bishop Gerald Murray CSsR and President Walter Murray of the University of Saskatchewan to found a Catholic college in federation with the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon. For the first thirty years, the local Basilian council also served as the governing council of the college, but in 1966 two separate councils, a Basilian council and a college council, were formed. Because of the overlapping of the Basilian religious community and the faculty of St. Thomas More College, the history of the two was at times inseparable. Much of the history of the college, therefore, can be found in the Basilian records and similarly, records of the college provide information about the history of the Basilian Fathers of Saskatoon.

Custodial history

In the mid and late 1970s Alphonse de Valk, CSB began to gather the records that had been saved over the years and to organize them into an archives along with the records of the college. Since that time, the Basilian Fathers of Saskatoon have deposited records and papers from time to time in the St. Thomas More College archives, which is now part of the Anglin Collection of Canadian Catholic Church History.

Scope and content

This fonds includes minutes, committee reports, conference proceedings and correspondence, as well as the personal papers of three Basilian fathers: Father Henry Carr, CSB; Father Paul Mallon, CSB; and Father Eugene Cullinane, CSB.
