Admin History/Bio
By the 1960s, the Cultural and Educational Department of the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. was running a program known as the Y-Arts Council. The council promoted education through the arts, providing both adult and children's classes, many of which were free to ‘Y’ members. The council was comprised of schools of dance, art, music, drama, Jewish Studies and recreational activities.
Scope and Content
This sub-series consists of eight course registration ledger books for the classes offered through the northern branch's Y-Arts Council. Each ledger contains information relating to the types of courses offered, as well as the day and time they were given, the names of the teachers leading the courses, the registration fee, the names and addresses of the registrants and their payment status. Each book is designated for a specific year or semester. The course registration ledgers would have been kept by the administrative staff, under the supervision of the executive director.
The records have been arranged by year. In some cases, there is more than one book per year, as specific programs were often given their own ledger book, such as the Junior Summer Fun program.

Admin History/Bio
The Y-Time was the official news organ of the Toronto Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. The paper began in 1933 as the Y.M.H.A. Bulletin and was originally produced as an annual publication. The Executive Committee was originally in charge of most of the content that was submitted to the editor for printing. In later years, the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A.'s Publication Committee took over responsibility for producing the newspaper. It was mailed out, free of charge, to the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. membership until around 1978, when the paper ended.
Scope and Content
This sub-series consists of Y-Time newspapers produced by the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. The newspapers are organized by year, generally with six to ten issues per year. There are also some bound volumes of the periodicals.
There are several missing issues, particularly from the years between 1936 and 1951. There is also some duplication between the bound issues and the loose issues, both of which have been kept due to the uniqueness of the record.

Scope Note
Hyman's Books and Art was a popular locale for the literary crowd. Hebraists were known to spend time here, discussing the latest trends in the world of literature. The owner Ben Zimon Hyman was also a Hebrew teacher but had originally trained as an engineer both in Russia and at the University of Toronto.
History
The store was operated by Ben Zion Hyman and his wife Fanny. Their hours were 8:30 a.m. to 1pm daily (except for Saturday). There was a mimeograph machine, pop cooler, newspapers and a bar mitzvah registry. They carried Yiddish and Hebrew books, Judaica, tickets for the Standard Theatre, stationary, and school supplies. The store later moved to 412 Spadina Ave. (Donegan, Spadina Ave., p.138)
