Biographical history

Maria Green joined the University of Saskatchewan as an instructor in French in 1963. She became an Assistant Professor in 1963, Associate Professor in 1971, and Professor in 1979. When she retired in 1990 she was named Professor Emeritus. Her scholarly focus has been on Max Jacob, the French poet, painter and theorist. She has published three volumes of a Jacob bibliography and several volumes of his letters. As a result, she has compiled a comprehensive set of copies of documents relating to Max Jacob (previously dispersed through numerous collections), which has been made accessible to scholars around the world. In 2000, Prof. Green was decorated by the French government with the Palmes académique, an order that rewards service to the educational system in France and which is “only occasionally” awarded to non-French citizens.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The fonds primarily consists of material about Max Jacob compiled and organized by Maria Green, based on research in libraries and archives in North America and Europe. This includes correspondence, writings by and about Jacob, drawings by Jacob, works with references to Jacob, and Green’s index cards including an extensive set of subject-based cards. There is also some material relating to Green’s work (edited collections, articles, awards, etc.).
Where possible, the order established by Green has been maintained, based on available file lists and numbering on file folders. The fonds is organized as follows:
