Scope and content
The series consists of agendas, reports, articles from journals, newspapers and magazines, press releases, incoming correspondence, copies of outgoing correspondence, invitations, programmes, certificates, photographs and a draft copy of a book. The series covers the years Shoyama spent in Ottawa (1964-1980) and his initial work with the Economic Council of Canada and the Department of Finance, as well as his subsequent positions as Deputy Minister of Energy, Mines, and Resources; Deputy Minister of Finance; Special Advisor on Constitutional Matters; and Chairman of Atomic Energy of Canada Limited. These papers document Shoyama's career as a senior bureaucrat and his personal interests. Much of the earlier correspondence in the series is of a personal nature, including letters from his brother Kazuo and sisters Mitsu and Fumi, and from friends such as Muriel Kitagawa and Kasey Oyama. There are also letters from Shoyama's wife and daughter. Letters of congratulations on awards and promotions are also numerous. Correspondents include Allan Blakeney, Joe Clark, Tommy Douglas, Eugene Forsey, Pierre Trudeau, John Turner, W.S. Lloyd and James Arnold; most of these letters are brief. Generally more detailed are copies of Shoyama's outgoing correspondence relating to matters arising from his work. Also included are miscellaneous files relating to a variety of topics such as The New Canadian and the N.D.P.
