Research

Series consist of material gathered or created by Weller in his research for scholarly work, government contracts, and community service involvement.

Modern Political Theory

Subseries primarily consists of lecture notes and other material from the course “Modern Political Theory” taught by Weller at Lakehead University from 1975-1977. The material also includes published lecture notes from a similar course taught at another institution and other items which appear to be Weller’s background research for the course.

Health Policy in Canada and Other Countries

Subseries primarily consists of articles by other authors, some with related correspondence between Weller and the author. A large amount of the material is related to health policy specifically in Canada; however, the records also range to health policy in the United States and other countries. The subseries also includes the text of speeches by government officials, publications created by government bodies, newspaper clippings, and other material collected over the course of Weller’s research on health policy. The series contains drafts by Weller with titles which correspond to early papers and chapters of his dissertation: "The Public Interest in Professional Politics: The Case of the Canadian Medical Association,” "Chapter 4: Health Care and Medicare Policy in Ontario," "Health Policy in Ontario," and "The Executive, the Legislature and the Health Policy Process: The Case of Ontario." The first 243 files are primarily scholarly works and government documents individually filed by Weller and generally arranged alphabetically by author. The other 72 files contain notes, correspondence, newspaper clippings, and other material in files created by Weller in broader files by topic. The bulk of the material was gather around the dates 1975 to 1980, though some files contain items from dates in the mid-1980s and four files with dates into the 1990s suggesting the material was also involved in later research (see subseries 10).

Appointments and Reviews

Subseries consists of material involved in Weller’s activity applying for, obtaining, and fulfilling the responsibilities of academic appointments (professorships, tenure, and university administrative positions), including correspondence, application materials, and annual reviews.
