XV Olympic Winter Games, Communications Group fonds

  • CA ccg ccg-2080
  • Fonds
  • 1979-1988

The fonds consists of 23 series, each of which is introduced by an "Administrative History" section and a "Scope and Content" note. Lengthier narratives have been added at the series level, rather than in the "Administrative History" of the Communications Group above. In some cases, added "Notes" complete the Series Descriptions. Series I and II are the records of the Vice Presidents, Communications Group: Frances Jackson Dover and Jared Joynt. Series III to XI contain the records of the Public Relations Division. The records of the Media Division can be found in Series XII to XIV, with Culture Division records in Series XV to XXII. An artificial series of publications, cultural historic items and other ephemera concludes the Series Descriptions. The records of the Communications Group are "multiple media," but the vast majority of the material is textual. Photo prints have been enclosed in acid-free enclosures and remain with their original files; oversize material (blueprints and plans) have been removed from their original files and placed in appropriate oversize storage. Notes have been added to indicate where this has been done. Listings of all oversize material from each series have been placed at the end of the "File Listing" section for each Series. Videos, sound recordings, film and computer diskettes may also be found in some of the Series. No special conservation measures have been taken for these media at this time. The main conservation problem in these records was that of facsimile documents. All "faxed" documents have been photocopied for the purposes of preservation. Where possible, newspaper clippings have also been photocopied for preservation purposes.

XV Olympic Winter Games, Finance Group fonds

  • CA ccg ccg-2063
  • Fonds
  • 1983-1988

The City of Calgary Archives originally received about 21 linear meters of Finance Group records. These included textual and graphic records as well as magnetic computer tapes. As noted in the "Administrative History," the records received were generally not actual financial records. The Archives received no records documenting financial transactions, only records which were originally maintained by the Administration and Treasury Divisions.

The records of the OCO'88 Governing Boards and Executive Group extend to over 21 linear meters and are multiple media in nature. The majority of the material is textual. Fonds consist of agenda and minutes of the Board of Directors and numerous committees, correspondence, reports, agreements, and assorted published and reference material. Besides those records mentioned in the "Extent" field, the records of the Executive Group include four oversize blueprints, two oversize plans and a musical score. The records of the Executive Group have been arranged into 14 series which are described in the printed inventory.

XV Olympic Winter Games, Marketing Group fonds

  • CA ccg ccg-2064
  • Fonds
  • 1976-1988, predominant 1982-1988

The records of the Marketing Group are "multiple media" in nature, although they are predominantly textual which includes 10 programmes, 9 postcards, 3 newsletters, 1 bulletin and 1 musical score. The oversize material includes 160 plans (venue plans and site plans), three charts, two posters and one map. The Marketing Group records, particularly in the licencing series, also includes cultural historic items (or artifacts) such as product samples, graphics samples and souvenir samples. Wherever possible, smaller items/samples have been placed into acid-free enclosures and kept within the originating file. However, the larger, more awkward items (buttons, pins, etc.) have been separated out into their own file folders directly following the originating file. As in the case of oversize items, notes have been added to indicate when an item has been removed from the originating file. In all cases, cultural historic items have been noted in the file lists in the printed inventory. See the conservation note below for more information on the care of these records. Some files from the licencing Program (Series II in the printed inventory) have been restricted because they contained personal and/or company credit information. These records may be viewed with the permission of Archives management. Other documents, such as reports and correspondence, were originally designated as "confidential," but have not been restricted since the confidential nature of the material had relevance only during the active life of the Marketing Group. The Marketing Group records consist of over 21 linear meters of material, which have been arranged and described into ten series, with some of these series further divided into sub series.

XV Olympic Winter Games, Olympic Photograph Collection fonds

  • CA ccg ccg-2081
  • Collection
  • 1977-1988, predominant 1981-1988

The fonds consists of approximately 40,000 photo images (prints, transparencies and negatives) created or commissioned by the Communications Group, one of the six Groups which made up OCO. Most of them are from the Information Services Division. Some, mostly duplicates of those from Information Services, are from Products and Advertising and from Community Relations. All of this material is in English. Most of the images are in colour, the transparencies are 35mm and enclosed in slide cases, and photo prints are 8 x 10" or smaller. Some of what are referred to as negatives are in fact internegatives made from transparencies. This material is in very good physical condition. These photo images were commissioned and created for the purposes of publicizing the 1988 Olympic Winter Games before they occurred, of educating people about the Games, and of documenting preparation for the Games and the Games themselves. OCO'88 used them as research material and as a record of its activities.

XV Olympic Winter Games, Olympic Plans and Miscellaneous Oversize Records fonds

  • CA ccg ccg-2082
  • Fonds
  • 1977-1988, predominant 1981-1988

The fonds consists of 3,448 plans, 37 posters, five pieces of art (drawings and sketches), three maps, three oversize aerial photo negatives, and a number of miscellaneous oversize items. Because there is no administrative structure to follow for the organization of these records, they have been grouped into two artificial series, the first consisting of the oversize plans and maps, and the second made up of the posters, aerial photo negatives and other miscellaneous items which did not fit into the first series. The majority of plans have been placed into oversize map folders and map cabinets. A few plans have been placed into one oversize box and some miscellaneous oversize items have been placed onto shelves. Each series has a number of sub series. There are 15 sub series in Series I, arranged by venue. Sub series xiv is made up of plans which were originally bound or grouped together because of the nature of the facility or operation described in the plans rather than by the venue where the construction was taking place.

XV Olympic Winter Games, Sports Group fonds

  • CA ccg ccg-2066
  • Fonds
  • 1977-1988, predominant 1981-1988

The records of the Sports Group are predominantly textual (nearly 17 meters) but are also made up of a number of photographic images and oversize documents within the series. Photographic images have either been placed in acid-free enclosures or, in the case of slides, placed into appropriate "sleeves" and then into a binder for storage. The oversize material consists of a number of maps, plans and schedules as well as material used for presentations. These have been removed from original file folders and placed either into oversize Hollinger storage boxes or into map folders and then into a map cabinet. Graphics, sound cassettes and some computer diskettes are also part of the records of this Group. As in many of the series in the OCO'88 records, a number of documents in telefax form were found in the Sports Group. Because of the rapid deterioration of these records, they have been photocopied for preservation. In the most severe cases--where the fading of the document was so extreme as to make photocopying impossible--the "faxed" documents have been transcribed. A number of boxes of OCO records intended for the City of Calgary Archives were mistakenly set to Kestrel Data Inc., the company responsible for the storage of OCO's financial records. This material was transferred to the Archives in 1991 August. All of the accrued material from the Sports Group was from the records of Brian Murphy, the first Vice President of the Sports Group (Series V). The records of the Sports Group consists of six series (listed below) and descriptions at the series level in the published inventories are sometimes quite detailed. Three of the series (II, IV and V) are the result of the work of more than one records creator. The records in Series IV came from the offices of Brian Murphy and Bruce Wasylik, and those in Series V are clearly identified as being the result of the work of several Sports Coordinators; however, the origin of the materials in Series II is less certain.
