Name of creator
The Order of AHEPA (Anglo-Hellenic Educational Progressive Association) is a fraternal organization, originally founded in Atlanta, Georgia in 1922. The Aurora Borealis Chapter 10 C.J. was established in Edmonton in 1932 as part of the Royal Canadian District no. 24. Its objectives are to promote an understanding of the Hellenic people, support selflessness, champion education, and resist the union of church and state.
Jean Pierre Van Eck, Christina Andrews, and Nicholas Spillios came into possession of the materials by either being direct members of the Aurora Borealis Branch, or had family members who were members. It is unclear how the Edmonton Public Library acquired the records.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of records relating to the activities of the Aurora Borealis Chapter 10 C.J. Order of AHEPA and includes correspondence, programmes, minutes, news clippings relating to special events and the Canadian Greek community, photographs, genealogical resources, and research materials gathered by Jean Pierre Van Eck, a member and Supreme Vice President of AHEPA Canada. Also included in the fonds are items relating to the membership of James Anton in the order. The photographs include portraits of groups and individuals that were members of AHEPA, as well as images taken during AHEPA events. Also included in the photographs are images of members of the wider Edmonton Greek community that might not have been members of AHEPA.
Immediate source of acquisition
This fonds was donated to the City of Edmonton Archives by Jean Pierre Van Eck in 1976, Christina Andrews and Nicholas Spillios in 2010, Christina Andrews in 2019 and 2020, and transferred from the Edmonton Public Library in 1991.
The material has been arranged by the archivist roughly according to documentary form.
