People Seeking Peace: Mennonite Bicentennial Audio visual presentation, 1985-1986

Classification scheme: 
Hist. Mss. 10.20

Date of creation: 1984

19 sleeves containing 339 35mm colour slides. This multi-media slide presentation was used by the MennoVan Voluntary Service workers, Reg Good and Kathy Shantz, who travelled as across Canada in celebration of the Mennonite Bicentennial in Canada in 1986. Multiple projectors were used, consequently there are several numerical sequences to the slide set and some pictures are only partial with portions of the picture obscured. The presentation was prepared by the Image Corporation.

Two copies of the accompanying cassette tape narration are with the slides. The sound quality of the tapes is poor. Narration by Tom Daly. Music by Carol Ann Weaver, Lyle Friesen and Michael Budding.

The slides were donated to the Archives by the Mennonite Bicentennial Commission in the late 1980s.
