This Time It's Personal: Staff Favourites from the Archives

On now, until November 8, 2019
Archives Reading Room

Have you ever wondered who takes care of historical documents? As archives staff we strive not to let personal biases interfere with decisions about collecting or providing access. This means we usually talk more about our collections than about ourselves. Still, as human beings we have personal responses to the records we care for.

In this exhibit, we introduce ourselves to you by sharing some of our favourite items from our collections. We hope our reflections show how archives connect people across time.

Perkins Bull Highlights

Archives Reading Room

William Perkins Bull had a remarkable life, and did invaluable research about Peel and its people. In preparation for his series of books, Bull hired over 100 staff to help him scour the County for facts, memories, and artifacts.

We celebrate this remarkable group of documents, with a selection of our favourites. They show the remarkable variety in his interests, including art, business, agriculture, and recreation.
