Scope and Content
Collection consists of two sets of oral history projects prepared by Ann McKerlie, a student under the supervision of Professor Patricia Skidmore as part of an oral history course at Brescia University College, a women's college located in London, Ontario. The projects pertain to oral history interviews with five female judges: Justice Lucy Glenn, Justice Katie McGowan, Justice Helen Rady, Justice Lynda Templeton, and Justice Mary Marshman. Included with each interview is a letter of introduction, a set of interview questions, full or partial transcripts of the interview, indexes, a release form, and a thank you letter. Each set of interviews includes an outline of the interviewer's comments, a time log, a bibliography, an essay, and audio cassettes containing recordings of the interviews. The second set of interviews also includes a research paper by Ann McKerlie entitled "Gender and the bench: women judges in the Ontario provincial and superior courts".
