Paul D. Fleck Archives

Searching the Archives

The Archives were established in 1990, with the archival mandate to serve as the institutional memory of the Banff Centre. Additionally, the archives collect the personal papers of artists and individuals associated with the Centre.

The Archives Catalogue and the Archives Photographs Catalogue can be searched below. Please note that these databases do not contain the complete holdings of the Archives. Please contact the Archives directly for information regarding other collections. 

Some of our Finding Aids and some digitized archival materials are available for browsing on the Archives Society of Alberta’s Alberta on Record website.

Donating to the Archives 

The Archives welcomes donations of personal papers from individuals and organizations associated with the Banff Centre (e.g., alumni, faculty, etc.) We also collect records which support the research interests of our students, faculty, and guests, such as those from individuals and organizations involved in the fields of contemporary arts and culture (music, performing arts, visual arts, etc), mountain culture, or leadership, with a particular emphasis on Canadian content and culture. 

The archives accept donations in any format (paper, audio-visual, born digital, etc.) and we are happy to discuss donations to the archives. Please contact the Archivist at or by phone at 403-762-6440.
