The collection consists of material collected between the 1950s and mid-1970s by A.E. Williams, relating to the United Indian Bands of the Chippewas and Mississaugans. Most of the fonds was created by or collected on behalf of the United Bands of Ontario between 1903 and 1912 in the course of their efforts by Ontario First Nations to assert their rights on issues of land, hunting, fishing, and voting, and to secure payments promised under treaty commitments. Records pertaining to the United Bands of Ontario consist of correspondence, minutes, legal documents, accounting records, research notes, transcripts of records in the National Archives of Canada and the British Public Record Office. Also included are by-laws, claims for unceded territory, treaties, correspondence, band censuses and genealogies, petitions, speeches, memorials, and broadsides. A few documents contain totem signatures.
