The fonds documents the activities of Father Devine, particularly in relation to his publications and his activities within the Society of Jesus. The fonds primarily reflects Father Devine’s interest and work concerning the history of Jesuit interactions with Indigenous communities, including the interactions Saint-Marie-among-the-Hurons and research about the Jesuit Martyrs of Canada.. This includes his correspondence related to the Martyrs’ Shrine, as well as publications such as The Jesuit Martyrs of Canada and material about Kahnawà:ke and Kateri Tekakwitha. Father Devine’s lectures, articles, typescripts, brochures, and other historical writing related to these subjects (some of which were intended for a proposed menology) are well represented in the fonds.
