Scope and content
Although more than forty members of the Lighthall and allied families are represented in the collection, only those with significant bodies of papers are mentioned here.
The papers of Cybel Wilkes Lighthall include correspondence from family members, and student work from her training as kindergarten teacher (1888-1890). Of particular note are the cut and folded paper designs. [Also, the occupational therapy materials after World War I are of interest.]
The papers of Alice M.S. Lighthall contain correspondence and papers relating to the Montreal branch of the Canadian Authors' Association and the Canadian Guild of Handicrafts. Her wartime letters are to be found in the papers of her parents (W.D.L. and C.W.L.) of her aunt (Katherine Lighthall) and of her grandfather (W.F.L.).
The papers of Anne Dean Lighthall contain some correspondence and two [unpublished] manuscripts: "Histoire de ma conversion" (ca. 1935) and "Oublier? – Jamais! La guerre telle que je l'ai vue en France" (1946).
The papers of W.F. Lighthall and Katherine Lighthall, although not extensive, contain letters from the Reverend Charles Chiniquy as do the papers of Margaret Wright Lighthall. Katherine's papers also include a series of illustrated letters and stories written to her nieces and nephew.
The papers of the Reverend Dr. Henry Wilkes include manuscripts of some of his sermons. The papers of Peter Rutherford include legal and financial records.
Others represented in the collection are William S. Lighthall, George R. Lighthall, Christine Lighthall Henderson, Edward Ellice, D.K. Lighthall, Timothy Hoyle and Cornelia Schuyler Nye. There is, as well, genealogical information and there are many family photographs.
