Bone Family fonds

  • ON00421 MG 7
  • Fonds
  • 1932-1993

The records comprising the Bone Family fonds, MG 7, are arranged and described at the series and sub-series levels and consist of 15 cm of material including prize ribbons, badges, printed material, correspondence, certificates, photographs, and a commemorative sign. The records document the involvement of Percy Bone and W. Arthur Bone in the Canadian National Exhibition Association and their ties with the Horticultural programme of the annual CNE. The fonds consists of two sous-fonds reflecting the fact that two individuals were responsible for the creation of the fonds as a whole: the late Percy Bone, and his son W. Arthur Bone.

Within the Percy Bone sous-fonds, there are four series: Prize Ribbons, MG 7-1-1; CNE Files, MG 7-1-2; Certificates, MG 7-1-3; Badges, MG 7-1-4. Comprising the W. Arthur Bone sous-fonds are three series: CNE Files, MG 7-2-1; CNE Committee Badges, MG 7-2-2; Tree Planting Sign, MG 7-2-3. A logical arrangement has been imposed on the material as it lacked any discernible original order.

Of special interest are the badges received by Percy Bone as a Director of the CNE and those acquired as a member of the CNE's Women's Committee. Also significant are the photographs and commemorative sign given to Arthur Bone as keepsakes of the 1973 tree planting ceremony in memory of Percy Bone.

Curry Clark family fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1775-[before 1980] predominant [before 1900]

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:
