Series consists of documents created or received by Knowlton Nash in his capacity as founding Chairman of the Canadian Journalism Foundation, an organization created in 1990 to promote excellence in journalism through education, dissemination of information, and recognition. These records trace the origins of the Foundation at the Niagara Institute in 1989, as well as its development until Nash left the Board of Governors in 2002. The files contain minutes of the Executive and Awards committees and the Board of Governors, financial statements, correspondence and reports that pertain to all aspects of the Foundation's activities, including strategic planning, fund-raising, and the recognition of outstanding Canadian journalists. The series concludes with a file devoted to the presentation of the Foundation's Lifetime Achievement Award to Nash in 2006.
