Biographical history

Leonard R. Ashley came to McGiII at age 15. Originally from New York, Ashley earned his B.A. (English) in 1949 and his M.A. in 1950. There is very little additional biographical information available - at the time of the donation of these records (in the mid-1980s), Ashley was Professor of English at BrookJyn College New York City.

Custodial history

These records were deposited at the Archives by Ashley in the mid-1980s.

Scope and content

This fonds consists of Ashley's student notes for McGiII courses in English, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, and Spanish, radio scripts, theatre programs, clippings and photographs all reflecting Ashley's active participation in campus life. Of particular interest are Ashley's notes annotated with drawings and draft articles commenting on life at McGill.
