Fonds consists of personal and professional papers created by Terrence Heath, a Saskatchewan freelance writer, cultural consultant, and curator. While the arrangement of series differs somewhat between accessions, as a whole the fonds contains corresspondence, financial records, personal files, publications, drafts and photographs, the bulk of which relate to Heath's writing and to his consulting activities. Of particular note is his vast correspondence with cultural organizations and galleries, government agencies, professional organizations, publishers and book dealers, universities, media outlets, writers, poets, artists, friends, family and others, which provide a wealth of information about the literary and cultural scene in Canada. The extensive series of Heath's writings and publications including articles, essays, reviews, books, exhibition catalogues, poetry, consultant's reports, manuscripts, plays, radio scripts and commentaries, filmscripts, short stories, student papers, and talks, provide insight into his development as a writer and his wide-ranging expertise in the cultural arena. Along with the writings and publications by other authors contained in the fonds, these records serve as a rich source for the study of Canada's cultural history chiefly during the 1970s, 1980s, and early 1990s. Small quantities of personal documents and financial records are also included.
