History / Biographical
John Grube (1930-2008) was a writer, activist, and academic who taught English at the University of Windsor for a brief time and then creative writing at the Ontario College of Art and Design for over twenty years. According to friend James Dubro, Grube was perhaps best known within the Toronto queer scene as one of the members of gay art collective JAC — along with Alex Liros and Clarence Barnes — which documented gay events, demonstrations and early Pride marches in Toronto in the 1980s. In the wake of the 1981 bathhouse raids, Grube become outspoken as a gay activist, publishing (for example) the essay "No More Shit," which dealt with the troubled relationship between gay men and the police force. Grube wrote frequently on a range of issues from a left perspective, and published two books: the 1997 short fiction collection I'm Supposed to Be Crazy and Other Stories and the 2002 book of poetry God, Sex and Poetry. The Foolscap project, directed by John Grube, began in 1980. Grube and Lionel Collier, an undergraduate student at the time, both collected a great number of interviews with local gay men in Toronto. These interviews were intended to document the formation of gay social spaces in the city, in addition to the personal histories of the gay men interviewed. Most of these interviews were conducted within the 1980s, although an interview with Lionel Collier conducted in 1997 is included in the fonds.
Scope and Content
John Grube's tapes consist of 45 seperate interviews of gay men about their lives in pre-Stonewall Toronto, in addition to 33 transcripts of Foolscap interviews. These transcripts were produced by Grube in the 1980s as well. In general terms, Grube's interviews were designed to explore memories of early gay community in Toronto, before the era of gay liberation. Topics covered in the interviews include the contours of pre-Stonewall gay culture; initiation into the gay community and/or coming out; early sexual experiences and relationships; cruising; relations with psychiatry and psychology; bar culture and gay social spaces; interaction with police; bar raids; interpersonal relationships; first contact with gay liberationists/activists; membership in gay organizations; party scene amongst older gay men; struggles with depression and substance abuse; S/M and leather culture; drag; and employment. Because not all interview subjects grew up in Toronto, the interviews cover other locations as well, mostly in Ontario. Lionel Collier's interviews, collected mostly in the same time frame as Grube's, cover similar topics. Notably, Lionel's interest was moreso in the narration of personal histories rather than broader social trends. These interviews occassionaly touched on health and the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Lionel also had a particular interest in gay liberation and responses to the Bathhouse Raids in Toronto. Many of Lionel's interviews discuss early sexual relationships. An interview with Lionel Collier from 1997 is also included in the fonds, as well as an interview conducted by the LGBTQ Oral History Digital Collaboratory's Elspeth Brown and Zohar Freeman with Lionel Collier in 2018.

Conservation
Hard-copy cassette tapes from the 2016-034 accession were rehoused in acid-free boxes, removed from the wooden cases in which they were donated. The wooden cases (with plastic lids) have been discarded. Hardcopy transcripts and textual records also rehoused in acid-free boxes. All cassette tapes and textual materials have been digitized, and stored both on the LGBTQ Oral History Digital Collaboratory harddrive and on the NAS server.
Arrangement
There was no discernable order of the tapes when collected, in both the 2016-034 and 2017-059 accessions. The 2016-034 tapes were numbered as items, in chronological order based on date of interview, from first tape to last. The 2017-059 tapes were numbered as items, in alphabetical order based on last name of interview subject, from A to Z. All transcripts, from 2016-034 accession, were also numbered in alphabetical order based on last name of interview subject, from A to Z. This fonds contains three series: 1: Project Documentation, 2: Oral Histories and 3: Transcripts. In F0083-01 Project Documentation, one can find textual documentation from the project, including correspondence related to the Foolscap project and some of the release forms signed by Foolscap interview subjects. This series is divided into two files: F0083-01-001 Release Forms and F0083-01-002 Correspondence. All project documentation is available both digitally and in hard-copy. In F0083-02 Oral Histories, one can find all of the archived audio from the Foolscap Gay Oral History Project. In this series, there is a file for every interview conducted as part of the Foolscap Gay Oral History Project (spanning across both the 2016-034 and 2017-059 accessions). These files are ordered alphabetically based on last name of interview subject, from A to Z. In cases where an interview subject was interviewed on more than one date, these interviews are labelled and ordered as First, Second, Third, etc, and kept in seperate files in successive order. Each file contains all digital recordings from said interview, as well as hard-copy audio-cassette tapes where available. Each tape (and the audio recordings from both sides of said tape) is considered a single item within the file. In cases where a single interview spans more than one tape, the tape item’s title is suffixed with (tape # of #). Digital recordings of audio are lettered A, B, C, D based on which side of which tape they are from, ordered alphabetically based on the order in which they were originally recorded.. All tapes have been digitized, with both sides (where a recording was present) available digitally in both original audio and noise-reduced audio. The titles of noise-reduced digital audio files are suffixed with "NR". In F0083-03 Transcripts, one can find all transcripts of Foolscap interviews produced at the time of the project. The series is organized into files, arranged in alphabetical order based on the last name of interview subject. Each file contains both the hard-copy of the transcript and a digital scan of the transcript, available in both original and screen-readable format. The names of screen-readable scans are suffixed with “SR”. In addition to the transcripts donated as part of the 2016-034 accession, some transcripts of Foolscap interviews produced by Maureen Fitzgerald and her students in 2016 have been included. These are arranged as the final files in the series, under the 2019-003 accession. In F0083-04 Supplementary Audio, one can find audio recordings donated by Lionel Collier which were found to pertain to the Foolscap Gay Oral History Project, but are not oral history interviews. This series includes a recording of a speech by John Grube (co-organizer of the Foolscap project), a recording of a speech by Barry Adams (a Foolscap interview subject), and a recording of a board meeting for the Tri-Aid House (which was mentioned in the interviews with Doug Chin). All digital files created as part of archiving the Foolscap fonds are available on the NAS server, in “F0083 Foolscap Gay Oral History Project fonds”. The digital files in this folder are arranged to mirror the arrangement of the fonds. One can also locate digital files related to particular records in the Foolscap fonds by looking at the FilePath field at the File level for any file or item in the fonds. This contains a file pathway which will take you to a folder of digital files corresponding to the items contained in said file record. Every item in the Foolscap fonds has been digitized.

History / Biographical
Gays For Equality (GFE) was established in 1973 as a student group at the University of Manitoba to provide information and counseling to gay men and lesbians, and to engage in public education on homosexuality to reduce prejudice and fear. Founding members included William (Bill) Lewis. Long term active members included Chris Vogel and Richard North. Early activities included a phone counseling service and small lending library. Originally intended to serve students, GFE soon became a vital resource for the greater gay and lesbian community of Winnipeg, working collaboratively with other gay and lesbian organizations, sponsoring and supporting community projects and efforts, and finding ways to educate and engage the wider public on gay and lesbian topics. In 1983 the GFE office moved from the University of Manitoba campus to the Winnipeg Gay Community Centre, forming the nucleus of what would become known as the Gay Resource Centre, which provided meeting space for community members and special-interest groups. During this time GFE and the wider community engaged in important political work and activism, campaigning for inclusion of Sexual Diversity in the Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms. In July of 1988, due to the dissolution of the Winnipeg Gay Community Centre, attributed to changes within the lesbian and gay community, the Winnipeg Gay/Lesbian Resource Centre was officially established as an independent entity. The former GFE Counselling Unit was amalgamated into the Gay/Lesbian Info Line. The accumulated reference and research collection, together with the library founded by GFE and later managed by The Council on Homosexuality and Religion, were combined as the Resource Centre Library. In 1999 The Winnipeg Gay/Lesbian Resource Centre once again evolved, becoming the Rainbow Resource Centre with an expanded mission to serve Manitoba’s gay, lesbian, transgender, two-spirit and bisexual communities
Scope and Content

History / Biographical
Stewart Hamilton was born in Regina, Saskatchewan to Florence Hamilton (née Stuart; 1893-1983) and James Shire Hamilton (1897-1954). His mother was from North Dakota and worked as a nurse (she later remarried under the surname Twiss), and his father, James Shire Hamilton, was from Galt, Ontario, and worked as a corporate lawyer. They had five children: Peter, Dorothy, Douglas, Stewart and Patricia (Patsy). Stewart went to Davin Public Elementary School and attended and graduated high school at Regina Collegiate which later renamed Central Collegiate Institute. His first musical training was in the Lakeview Boys Choir in Regina, under the direction of Kay Hayworth. In 1943, his parents agreed to send him to piano lessons with Martha Somerville Allan. In 1946, when Hamilton's parents moved to Saskatoon, he decided to stay in Regina to continue his lessons, moving into an apartment with Mrs. Annie Hailstone, a dress-maker. Hamilton moved to Toronto in 1947 to join his sister Dorothy Marshall (née Hamilton), who was pursuing her own singing career. He began his piano performance studies at The Royal Conservatory of Music with the Chilean-Canadian composer, pianist, and teacher Alberto Guerrero. In 1948, to help support his studies, he worked as a uniformed usher at Eaton Auditorium, Canada's premier concert stage. This job allowed him to see many performances of The Eaton Auditorium concert series. He also coached singers on the side for twenty-five cents an hour. In 1950 he earned certification as an Associate of The Royal Conservatory of Music (ARCT). Hamilton spent much of his time in the 1950s involved in the Toronto classical music scene. These seminal years laid much of the ground for his future career in Canadian music. He started frequenting performances and social events of The Royal Conservatory Opera (later known as the Canadian Opera Company) with Herman Geiger-Torel, Nicholas Goldschmidt, and Arnold Walter. Hamilton accepted an offer from soprano June Kowalchuck, founder of Opera Hamilton, to become the chorus director, rehearsal pianist, and occasional conductor for the Royal Conservatory Opera School, which he held for five years. He accepted his first position as a voice teacher at the local Music Conservatory in Hamilton and spent the rest of his time in Toronto, coaching Elizabeth Benson Guy, Maureen Forrester, and Lois Marshall, as well as accompanying Greta Kraus's lieder classes. In 1967, he took up a significant technical and musical challenge by accepting the role of pianist and singer in a production of Beyond the Fringe. The show was performed in Buffalo, New York for six weeks, in Toronto for six months, and he later toured across Eastern Canada. During afternoons and off days, Hamilton practiced for his New York City Town Hall piano recital. After a second New York recital in 1968, and a third one in London's Wigmore Hall in 1971, Hamilton decided not to further pursue a concert career and concentrated his efforts on the Toronto classical music scene. In 1974, Hamilton initiated the annual Opera in Concert series at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts in Toronto, acting as artistic director, producer, and accompanist. Hamilton was the first Music Director of the Canadian Opera Company Ensemble and in 1981 he relinquished the position, to act as Lois Marshall's accompanist on her farewell recital tour. During the 1980s and 1990s, Hamilton was in regular demand as an adjudicator for competitions such as the CBC Young Performers' Competition, Opera America Auditions, the Sullivan Foundation Awards, the Oralia Dominquez Competition (in Mexico), and the George London Foundation Awards In 1984 he was made a member of the Order of Canada and in 1989 he won the Toronto Arts Award in the Performing Arts Category. In recognition of his significant contributions to performing arts in Canada, he received the Governor General’s Commemorative Medal for the 125th Anniversary of the Confederation of Canada in 1992. In 1981, he became the host of the opera quiz on the CBC's Saturday Afternoon at the Opera April–December broadcasts. From 1982-2007 Hamilton worked as the Quiz Master on CBC's weekly Saturday Afternoon at the Opera, as well as appearing regularly as a panelist, and occasionally guest quiz master, on the Metropolitan Opera radio broadcasts in New York City. Hamilton's last Opera Quiz for Saturday Afternoon at the Opera was in the fall of 2007. In 2000, Opera Canada Magazine awarded him the first Ruby award and in 2004, he was awarded the Beckmesser Award from the Los Angeles Opera League. He received an honorary doctorate (honoris causa) in 2008 from Dalhousie University. Hamilton continued to teach opera repertoire and diction at the University of Toronto and maintained a full coaching schedule and devoted time to master classes across Canada. His autobiography Opening Windows was published by Dundurn Press in the fall of 2012 and the same year he was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. Stewart died on January 1, 2017 after a battle with prostate cancer.
