Examining Papers at Queen's University Archives, 2021

The facts as presented: A collection of private papers created between about 1930 and 1964 - a Fonds, located in the Archives of Queen's University, had been identified as a collection of interest.

The challenge: Could I visit the Archives to examine these papers, and obtain paper copies of all entries found in certain categories, within several date ranges between about 1950 and 1964?

The results: All of the relevant items found within the Fonds were examined in minute detail. All of the items in the Fonds were handwritten, using either a nib-pen and ink (earlier), or a ballpoint pen (later). Entries made in the various notebooks of interest were difficult to work through - year dates were not necessarily recorded, and manuscript entries were not necessarily in date sequence. Neverthless, 51 full colour copies on both 11" x 17" and 8 1/2" x 11" paper were obtained, and duly forwarded by postal mail.

The response: "Thank you for your research report received on Friday. And thank you for all your diligent documenation efforts."
