McGill University Archives Collection

  • CA MUA MG 4319
  • Collection
  • 1800-2019

This collection is an artificial collection containing archival material related to McGill University. The material in this collection was created over time by McGill administration, staff, faculty, and students, between roughly 1800 and 2019. The subject of the material varies, but the collection generally documents the activities of the university and its staff, and the experiences of McGill students, both during their studies and after graduation.

The collection is arranged by form/genre into 7 series: 01 Documents, 02 Ephemera, 03 Scrapbooks and notebooks, 04 Graphic materials, 05 Audiovisual materials, 06 Textiles, 07 Artifacts. This arrangement was chosen because of the collection’s size, and because it was artificially created by the University’s archives by combining many smaller collections and fonds.

Information about the university bodies, student groups, or people represented in the collection is found in the statement of responsibility and scope and content fields at the file or item level.
