The records in the fonds were created, received or used by the School of Journalism staff and administrators in the course of their work. The School transferred most of the records arranged and described in this project to the Archives in 2010, at the time Kelly Toughill became Director in 2010.The primary activity of the School of Journalism is to provide education to aspiring and seasoned journalists. By training students in the art, craft and profession of informing the public about matters of public interest, the program equips its students with the abilities to work as reporters and editors in the Canadian news media (from paper to broadcast to online), and provides excellent training for careers where being able to write and speak well, interview people, research topics and puzzle things out are assets.

Henry Drake Petersen fonds
Fonds · 1935 - 2012
Henry Drake Petersen was born in Amityville, Long Island, New York, on August 31, 1946. He died in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on October 17, 2012. He never married or had children. Petersen was educated in the Amityville public school system, graduating from Amityville Memorial High School in 1964. He then enrolled in Long Island University's Richard L. Conolly College in Brooklyn, Long Island, New York, earning his B.A. with honours in history in October 1968. While at Long Island University, Petersen was on the Dean's List and a member of Phi Alpha Theta national history honour society. He had a tuition scholarship and a New York State Regents scholarship. He worked as a residence hall counselor and university tutor. His extracurricular activities included All-University Chorus, which sang at the New York World's Fair in-fall 1964; L.I.U. Theatre, where he was stage manager and costume designer; Student Orientation Committee; Forum Linguae; International Student Association; Inter-Faith Council; and the Fellowship of St. Alban and St. Sergius. In 1969, at the height of the Vietnam War, Petersen, age 23, left the United States and went to Nova Scotia, Canada, where he had family connections through his mother, whose sister, Alida Wicks, had moved from New York to Cape Breton with her husband in 1964. Not long after coming to Halifax, a friend invited him to dinner at King's College, which so impressed Petersen that he applied for a donship. From September 1970 to September 1971, he was Don of Middle Bay at the University of King's College, and from September 1971 to June 1972, he was Don of North Pole Bay. While serving as Don, he participated in student groups, including the Quintilian Debating Society, the Haliburton Literary Society, and the King's Dramatic and Choral Society. HDP
Fonds · 1902-2002
The records in the fonds were created, received, or used by the Alexandra Society. These records were stored in various spaces across the King’s College campus and at society member’s homes before being donated to or acquired by the University of King’s College Archives. The oldest records (before the turn of the century) were found in storage in the Arts and Administration building by Assistant Librarian Patricia Chalmers and Dr. Henry Roper. Most other records slowly accumulated as the various Alexandra Society branches folded. The primary activities of the Alexandra Society were to raise money for scholarships (for women and Anglican students) and the general well-being of King’s College. The records cover the Alexandra Society’s finances, meeting minutes, and general comraderie. There are many photographs that document fundraising efforts. These records reflect the society’s Anglican origins. CaNSHK UKC.ALEX
