Name of creator
The Drill Shed Committee's mandate was to oversee the use and physical maintenance of the City's Drill Shed. It was composed of four aldermen, from whom a chairperson was elected. The precise dates of creation and dissolution of this committee are not known.
The custodial history of these records, prior to their transfer to the Guelph Public Library archives, is not known or documented. These records were transferred by the City Clerk's office to the Guelph Public Library archives, probably in the 1980's.
Scope and content

Included in this series are committee recommendations for the repair and upkeep of the drill shed and requests to Council for money appropriations for the shed's maintenance.
