Scope and content

Item is a pamphlet published by the Queen's Printer that was "designed to assist those Canadians who live in major cities which might be target areas in the event of nuclear war." The pamphlet discusses the advantages and disadvantages of evacuation or shelter in order to help Canadians prepare a practical survival plan.

The pamphlet is accompanied by a form letter regarding the Calgary Target Area Survival Plan from B.O. Miller, Principal of Rosedale School in Calgary, sent on behalf of the Calgary School Board to "parents whose residence can be reached from the school within 20 minutes." The letter explains a decision by the Department of Education that in the event of nuclear war, all schools will be closed and pupils dispersed to their homes, and parents are asked to prepare for this possibility. This letter was sent on November 27, 1962 to the parents of Grant Paterson.
