Anderson Family fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1877-1999

Fonds consists principally of records relating to the Anderson family's many athletic, philanthropic and community development activities and is of particular interest to those seeking information on the development of social-service organizations and institutions in St. Thomas, Ontario, and to historians and researchers generally concerned with museum administration, community development fundraising, and the organisation of golf and curling as amateur sports in Ontario. Fonds also includes correspondence of Robert Marshall Anderson and Donald Hume Anderson with various soldiers from the St. Thomas area who served during the Boer War/South African War (1899-1902), the First World War (1914-1918), and the Second World War (1939-1945). These records will interest military historians and researchers concerned with how the experiences of war are described and remembered. The correspondence embodies the distinct perspectives on military service of the regular infantry soldier and the military physician. Fonds is arranged in the following series: 1. Community Service 2. Curling 3. Golf 4. Photographs 5. War Correspondence
