Archival History The fonds was transferred to the Catriona Jeffries Gallery by Kiyooka's daughters. The gallery inventoried the material and pulled those items that were considered formal artworks. The remainder of the material was then transferred to the Archives of the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery in 2002. A further accrual of publications and photographic materials was transferred to the Belkin from the Catriona Jeffries Gallery in 2003.
Scope & Content Fonds consists of material created and accumulated by Roy Kiyooka over his artistic career, and includes photographs, prints, publications, artworks given to him by friends, cards and posters. The photographic material shot by Kiyooka covers a span of over three decades and is predominantly source material and personal photographs. None of the material in the fonds was used or should be considered as finished artworks, although similar images were incorporated into Kiyooka's artwork. The photographic materials are in a wide variety of photographic media and dimensions, including colour and black and white prints of various sizes, 35mm negative strips, contact sheets, slides, transparencies and other formats. The fonds also includes a small number of prints (possibly lithographs, and 1 etching) and photographs that appear to be gifts from friends and acquaintances. Also included are catalogues and other publications that are by or about Kiyooka, and exhibition catalogues relating to Vancouver and BC artists. The fonds is divided into the following categories: photographic material shot by Kiyooka, other work by Kiyooka, publications by or about Kiyooka, other catalogues, artworks - other artists, and posters/prints.
Associated Material The Simon Fraser University Library, Special Collections division holds Kiyooka's literary papers. The SFU material includes manuscripts, typescripts, publications, chapbooks, correspondence, notebooks and other archival material. An inventory of the SFU material is available in the Kiyooka case file (Archivist's files).
