Biographical history

Robert Delledonne was a local historian whose research culminated in the work, “From Nelson to Lakefield” published in 1999. This collection is rich in social and cultural history of the village of Lakefield in the 19th century.

Custodial history

Collection donated by Robert Delledonne. The final manuscript of the book, complete with illustrations, was donated to the Lakefield Historical Society, which was the driving force of the book that resulted from Delledonne’s collecting. An additional accrual, .3 meters, was received from the Lakefield Historical Society, October 2015. Most of this accrual was placed in Series L. These materials included research notes by Delledonne as well as stages of the publishing process, over which Georgia Elston presided.
