Name of creator
Merritton (Ont.). Fire Dept.
Merritton, Ont. was incorporated as a village in 1874. The Merritton Fire Department was established 14 years later on August 17, 1888, with Mr. A.R. Thompson as President and Richard Clark as Captain. The fire department became a unit of the St. Catharines Fire Department in 1961, when Merritton amalgamated with St. Catharines, Grantham and Port Dalhousie.
Scope and content
Fonds consists mainly of minute books of the Merritton Fire Department, as well as other items pertaining to the fire department, including member account books, a roll book, a guest book, 62nd Annual Convention proceedings, and an attendance record and fire report book.
Immediate source of acquisition
Fonds was donated by Paul Hutchinson in 1999[?], who had received the records from a former Merritton fire chief.
