This exhibition draws on the extensive and diverse holdings relating to the War effort in the University of Toronto Archives, the wider University library system, and elsewhere on campus. It focuses on how the University prepared for and carried out its duties during the war and on the impact of the war on the University’s faculty, staff, students, its physical plant, its academic and research programmes, and on student and other organizations. The material on display will include correspondence, diaries, official documents, photographs, posters, maps, and a wide range of publications and artifacts. This exhibition is curated by Harold Averill, Marnee Gamble and Loryl MacDonald of the University of Toronto Archives and Records Management Services.
