Name of creator
In 1945, the Canadian Institute of International Affairs (CIIA), which has local and regional branches, created the Sherbrooke\Lennoxville Branch. Its goals were to stimulate the interest of local communities in international issues and more specifically in the role and interests of Canada on the international scene. Members were elected to postions as Branch officers annually, and the Branch President sat at the CIIA's National Council. Jointly with the CIIA, the Branch furthered the organization's goals by organizing information and discussion forums on various international issues. Speakers from all over the world came to present their points of view. In 1988, however, the Sherbrooke\Lennoxville Branch disbanded because members were so few.
The documents of the fonds were preserved by various people over the years. In 1992, Vincent Cuddihy, the Branch's last president, and Graham Moodie, its last secretary-treasurer donated the documents to the Archives.
Scope and content
The fonds contains source material on the activities of the Sherbrooke\Lennoxville Branch of the Canadian Institute of International Affairs from 1945 to 1988, and thus indirectly provides information on the interests of Sherbrooke-area residents in international affairs. It is comprised of the following series: By-laws (1965-1981), Norms and Procedures (1963-1982), Minutes and Agendas (1965-1987), Accounting and Financial Documents (1945-1988), Members (1945-1988), Speakers (1945-1988), Correspondence (1945-1988) and Miscellaneous Documents (1947-1978).
