Name of creator
The records contained within this fonds were obtained from several sources over the course of ten years. All of the records were collected by Dr. William Fong, biographer of J.W. McConnell and Mr. Nicolas McConnell, great-grandson of McConnell. Records were sought and taken from McConnell family members as well as from the holdings of the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation and records stored at the McConnell home on Pine Avenue. All of the records in the Fonds were directly deposited into the McGill University Archives by Dr. Fong and Mr. McConnell. The business records in the Business and Professional Commitments series are scattered and not complete in terms of McConnell’s full activities. This is because McConnell periodically destroyed or had destroyed his various business records.
Please note that many pieces of correspondence, journals, scrapbooks and address books contain notes in pen or pencil not original to that item. These notes were written by Dr. Fong while the records were in his possession prior to 2004. The notes do not necessarily reflect the complete contextual information of the item.
