Name of creator
In 1936 a Faculty Relations Committee was created by presidential appointment to act as liaison between the administration and the academic staff at the Calgary Branch of the University of Alberta. The appointment of the FRC came into effect in 1939 and annual staff meetings were iniated in 1940. A constitution was not in place until 1945 when it was agreed that the FRC would now act as the executive to the Association of Teaching Staff of the University of Alberta (ATSUA). The mandate, as laid out in the constitution, was to foster academic fraternity and to protect the independence and freedom of teaching, thought and research. Every full time member of the academic staff was a member. In 1949 the administrative procedures were reviewed and a new constitution was in place in 1950 by which the executive regularly elected by ATSUA was recognized as the liason agency and the FRC ceased to exist. The name was changed again twice: in 1959 to Association of Academic Staff of the University of Alberta (AASUA); in 1962 to Association of Academic Staff of the University of Alberta, Calgary (AASUAC).
The AASUAC material was removed from a larger body of material deposited by the U of C Students' Union. Removal probably took place in 1990 when the Student's Union accessions (68.002, 79.002, 79.003, 85.006) were consolidated into 90-026. The time of initial accession is not known.
