Biographical history

Charlotte Caron earned a BA from the University of Winnipeg in 1970; her MDiv from the Vancouver School of Theology (1978) and her PhD from the Union Instititute (1991). Between 1972 and 1981 she served in the ministry of the United and Anglican churches in British Columbia, at East Kootney, Windermere Valley, and Shuswap Lake parishes. She became an Adjunct Faculty member at St. Stephen's College, Edmonton, in 1981 and at Newman Theological College the following year; in 1983, she was named a sessional lecturer at the College of Emmanuel and St. Chad in Saskatoon. A specific fund was established to create a special appointment for Caron, to integrate women's studies into the curriculum of St. Andrew's College. She joined their faculty in 1985 as professor of pastoral theology, eventually serving as co-president (1993-1998). She was named to the Lydia Gruchy Chair in 1998, and in 2001 was appointed Academic Dean.

Custodial history

Scope and content

This fonds is a useful source for theology; issues of doctrine; and particularly as documentation of a woman in both theological and academic life, at a time when to both were relatively rare. It contains records relating to women's issues and experiences, as well as feminist interpretations of biblical texts.
