Biographical history

Born in 1925, in the Montreal suburb of Verdun, Quebec, Angus “Gus” MacFarlane attended McGill University, then went on to teach for several years. In 1957, he became the head coach for football and basketball at Mount Allison University. From 1960 to 1971 he was the Mount Allison University Athletics Director. During his years at Mount Allison University, he participated in many sports and community events and organizations, taught English and acted as a residence don.

In 1966, he was elected president of the Canadian Association of University Athletic Directors. From 1972 to 1974, Mr. MacFarlane was dean of men at MacMaster University, Hamilton, Ontario, and served as resource assistant at the National Administrative Center for Sports and Recreation in Ottawa. In July of 1974, he was elected as Member of Parliament for Hamilton Mountain, Ontario and in 1977, was assigned as the government whip. Later, Mr. MacFarlane moved to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, where he worked on the War Veterans Allowance Board and worked with several sports, government, and community organizations. Angus MacFarlane died in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, 22 February 1991.

Custodial history

In 1991, executors of his estate donated Angus MacFarlane’s sports and career memorabilia to Mount Allison University. Harvey Gilmour, Director of Development and Alumni, donated the contents of this fonds to the Mount Allison University Archives in August 1993. One photograph (accession # 9331/6/6/1) was left for the Mount Allison University Archives during the week of 21 September 1994, by an unknown person. It had probably been a part of the Angus MacFarlane fonds and become separated.

Scope and content

This fonds consists of textual records, including clippings, publications, correspondence, pamphlets and other written material, and photographs generated by Angus MacFarlane’s activities as a coach, athletic director, politician, and active member of several sports, community, and government organizations and events.

Several Mount Allison University publications were discarded if duplicates already existed in the repository. Photocopies were made of most newspaper articles, and the originals were discarded. Photographs were transferred from their original envelopes to acid free envelopes. Memos on the original photograph envelopes were not always correct, but they were taken into consideration when contents of prints and negatives were noted on their new envelopes.
