In the Gordon Shrum collection (F-31) at the SFU Archives, series F-31-3: Shrum and SFU interviews contains unedited and edited transcripts and audio recordings of an interview of Dr. Shrum. University Archivist and Librarian Liisa Fagerlund conducted the interview as part of an oral history project undertaken by the archives in 1974.
Part confessional and part narrative, the Shrum interview contains historical recollections from his perspective. Throughout, Fagerlund’s thought-provoking interview questions provide a foil for Shrum’s outspoken personality.
As of today, you can stream the audio recordings of the Shrum and SFU interviews directly from SFU AtoM, and take a trip down memory lane into the mind of SFU’s first Chancellor.
