Mennonite Archives Audio-Visual: "It's News To Me!"

  • CA CMBS NS25-01
  • Collection
  • 1986

This is a collection of 132 slides used in a 17-minute audio-visual presentation commissioned by the Mennonite Historical Society of Canada to showcase the three major Mennonite archives in Canada. At the time, these were: Mennonite Archives of Ontario (housed in the Conrad Grebel University College complex, Waterloo), Mennonite Heritage Centre (housed at the Canadian Mennonite Bible College complex, Winnipeg), and Centre for Mennonite Brethren Studies (housed in the Mennonite Brethren Bible College complex on Henderson Highway, Winnipeg).

The presentation is called "It's News To Me!" and was designed to promote and educate Canadian Mennonite churches about the work of the archival centres.

An audio script accompanied the slides and the presentation was made available to churches for a rental fee to cover shipping and handling costs (see news release in Mennonite Historian 12/2 [June 1986]: 4). The 11-page transcription of the audio tape is located in the NS25-01 folder; and a digitization of the original cassette audio is located in the Audio-Visual Collection (MCD-33-01) at CMBS.

It's News To Me! produced and directed by Gareth Neufeld

  • CA CMBS NS12-01
  • Collection
  • 1986

This is a audio-visual presentation commissioned the three major Mennonite archives in Ontario -- Mennonite Archives of Ontario, Centre for Mennonite Brethren Studies and Mennonite Heritage Centre. The 17-minute presentation consisted of slides and a cassette recording, designed to both promote the archival institutions and to educate the public about the work of an archives. It starred a snoopy reporter who stumbles upon the Mennonite Heritage Centre, and realizing a good story when he sees one, seeks out the other two major archives in the Canadian Mennonite world.
Using shots from all three archives and featuring the real-life staff of the three archives as well as their researchers, writers/photographers Gareth Neufeld and Allan Siebert developed an entertaining and informative look at the world of an archives. (See Mennonite Historian, June 1986, p. 4.)
