Canada Games history arrives at Brock

Members of the Canada Games Council were at Brock University Oct. 20 to drop off more than 66,000 photos, slides and images as part of a collaborative digitization project with the Sport and Oral History Archive (SOHA). Co-directors of SOHA Elizabeth Vlossak, Associate Professor of History, and Julie Stevens, Associate Professor of Sport Management and Special Advisor, Canada Games, are pictured receiving one of the 14 boxes from Canada Games Council representatives Kelly-Ann Paul and Amélie Proulx. History students Kat Rice and Michael Storms, with Anitta Martignago of SOHA, will begin the process of identifying and digitizing images, which will then be used by History students as part of their research on the history of sport. The goal is to eventually digitize between 500 and 1,000 images.
