Name of creator
The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) was opened in October 1963 as part of a nationwide expansion of technical institutes and vocational colleges. NAIT accommodated 10,000 students annually, attending day and night courses. Initially the programs offered at the institute were divided into four areas; the apprenticeship division; the technology division; the business education and vocational division; and the evening division.
Scope and content
The collection consists of records created or collected by various departments of the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology.
The textual records include reports prepared by students enrolled in the Architecture Department in conjunction with the English Department and created in 1969. Each report contains technical and historical information on a different building of architectural significance in Edmonton. There are 28 reports in total and include commercial, educational, religious, public and industrial buildings.
The photographs include the Edmonton Monarchs hockey teams [ca. 1960 and 1970].
