Al Betts fonds

  • Fonds
  • [196-?] – [ca. 1982?]

Records consist of photographs created by Streetsville resident Al Betts during his time as a professional photographer. Betts worked professionally as a photographer from ca. 1965 to ca. 1983.

Included are wedding portraits, passport portraits, photographs of various industrial and commercial properties, confirmation (first communion) photographs, and photographs taken for the Streetsville Review newspaper. The geographic coverage of the material is not limited to Streetsville or Toronto Township; Betts travelled throughout Ontario while working for clients, and as a result photographs of other locales are present (including Burlington, Etobicoke, and Toronto). One of Betts’ major commercial clients was the Toronto-based foundry and engineering company John T. Hepburn Ltd. and they sent him to document their projects throughout Ontario.

Fonds consists of records created or collected by two families related by marriage, the Clarks and Curries of Chinguacousy Township. Fonds includes correspondence, legal and land records, accounting ledgers, petitions to township councils, ephemera, copying and penmanship exercises, and photographs.

Because the records can readily be associated with one or another of the two branches, the fonds has been arranged into two series as follows:

Series 1: Curry family records

George W. Gordon family fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1877 - 2009

Fonds consists of records created or collected by members of the prominent Gordon family of Port Credit during the course of their personal and professional lives.

While the records span three generations of the Gordon family, the fonds centres on the personal and professional records of George W. Gordon. His records, as well as smaller bodies of records created by four of his children, Lillian, Rhena, Francis (Frank), and Douglas Wilden, came into the care of his granddaughter, Sandra (Gordon) Moore who partially organized them and conducted related family research. Moore’s own records and those of her ancestors have therefore been treated as an organic whole and no attempt has been made to split the body of records into separate fonds; however, series are described in terms of the family member to whom records pertain (see below for series listing).

George W. Gordon’s records include a substantial number of letters dating from the late nineteenth and early twentieth century from members of the Wingfield, Beamish, and Gordon family members and acquaintances, relating to daily life in small Ontario settler and farming communities such as Utterson, Allensville, Port Credit, Springfield-on-the-Credit (now Erindale) as well as larger centres such as Hamilton and Toronto. Some letters came from further afield in the North West Territories, England, and the US. Domestic and personal records collected or created by Gordon also include administrative records related to fraternal organizations (Masonic and Orange Lodges), household receipts, farming expense accounts and diaries, land and financial records, and various ephemera.

The fonds also contains a significant body of records emanating from George W. Gordon’s role as justice of the peace and magistrate for Port Credit, including marriage licence applications, administrative records related to the Toronto Hamilton Highway Commission, and police court records. The latter include completed forms such as summons, warrants, and complaints, correspondence and signed statements made in court relating to criminal charges and civil infractions.

Records created by Gordon’s children, Lillian, Rhena, Frank, and Douglas Wilden include correspondence, photographs, ephemera, family research, and professional records related to teaching. Lillian Gordon’s records include a significant amount of mid-twentieth-century correspondence with suitors located in Ontario, the US and Germany.

Sandra Moore’s records contain a substantial amount of family research, including correspondence with relatives and records offices in North American and the United Kingdom. Her records include extensive documentation of the Beamish family of which one branch settled in Springfield-on-the-Credit.

Fonds comprises the following series:

Series 1: Wingfield correspondence
Series 2: Beamish correspondence
Series 3: Gordon family correspondence
Series 4: George W. Gordon domestic and personal records
Series 5: Lillian Gordon records
Series 6: Rhena, Frank, and Douglas Wilden Gordon records
Series 7: Sandra Moore (nee Gordon) records
