"This fonds documents the activities of The Flat Earth Society of Canada (later The Flat Earth Society) from its birth in November 1970 until its demise in the mid-1980s. More specifically, it highlights Leo Ferrari's role as the society's spokesperson and long-serving president.

The fonds includes correspondence, notes, membership records, financial records, newspaper clippings, photographs, cartoons, audio cassette recording of Ferrari speaking about the FES, and VHS videotape of "In Search of the Edge." In addition, it contains copies of newsletters ("The Official Chronical" and "The Official Organ"), tractates, and drafts of speeches as well as draft and published copies of articles about the society and its members.

The fonds also includes an unpublished manuscript "The Earth is Flat! An Exposé on the Globularist Hoax" and a published copy of Ferrari's more scholarly article "Feminism and Education in a Flat Earth Perspective" (McGill Journal of Education). Artifacts include a smashed globe, maps of the world in various shapes, framed membership certificates, and a wooden gnome holding the sign "Repent! the Edge is Nigh."
