Series II.B. Managing Director Bradley Gundy Files, 1961-1965. 0.33 Linear feet in 5 folders

Biographical / Historical

Bradley Gundy is listed in the Department Head Lists as the Managing Director of Time International of Canada Ltd. under Time Life International in 1964 after serving as the Time Canada Advertising Manager. His files indicate he may have taken over this position from Lawrence Laybourne in 1963 and may have continued in it through 1965.

A 1969 note in a Davey Committee folder in the Managing Director General Files explains the roles of the Managing Director (who is the publisher) and the Editor of Time Canada. The Managing Director oversees advertising sales, circulation, promotion, production, distribution, industry and public affairs and all budgeting.

The Canadian government created the Royal Commission on Publications in 1960 to examine periodical publications in Canada as an attempt to protect Canadian publications from competition by foreign media. This commission was also known as the O'Leary Commission after the chair Grattan O'Leary.
