Part of David Farr fonds
Series consists of newspaper clippings and reports relating to Carleton International. This material was created and accumulated by Dr. Farr as a participant in Carleton International and as Director of the Paterson Centre for International Affairs.
Established as an administrative unit of Graduate Studies and Research, Carleton International (named the Paterson Centre for International Programs until 1986), co-ordinated academic exchanges between Carleton and universities throughout the world and, identified and informed the university community of international academic opportunities. After the name change in 1986, Carleton International's activities as a "foreign office" expanded to include greeting visitors from the international community and negotiating contracts and grants from agencies dealing with international issues. As a specialist in Canadian external relations, Dr. Farr joined Carleton International to work towards these efforts. In 1979 Dr. Farr was appointed Director of the Paterson Centre for International Affairs.
