Bereik en inhoud

The fonds consists of papers, sketches, drawings, and photographs associated with William Bruce and his son William Blair Bruce. Series one is William Bruce and series two is William Blair Bruce.


Materiële staat

Many of the letters and sketches are fragile and torn around the edges.

Directe bron van verwerving

Some of the fonds were donated to Hamilton Public Library, Local History and Archives in 1948 by Mrs. John Walkden. A portion of the fonds including papers and sketches by William Blair Bruce were donated by an anonymous donor in 1967.


The initial accession for the Bruce Family fonds was #00045 which included materials related to William Bruce and his son William Blair Bruce. At a later date (1967), an anonymous donor donated letters, sketches and drawings from William Blair Bruce. At an undetermined date, accession #00045 was divided up and accessions #00276 (William Bruce) and #00507 (William Blair Bruce) were created and accession #00045 was removed. The current accession (#00507) has been rearranged to better reflect materials initially in accession #00045 for the Bruce Family fonds.
