Item consists of an audio recording of three speeches given by Edgar Wardwell McInnis delivered in his capacity as university orator: one delivered to Dr. Murray Ross, upon his installation as President on January 24, 1961, the second a convocation speech from June 3, 1964 and finally a toast delivered to honourary graduates of York University delivered on June 1, 1966. It appears these were recited by McInnis in one sitting to record the speeches for posterity.
Item consists of a recording of a press conference with The Beatles in Toronto on 17 August (1966 or 1965).
