General note

Title based on contents of fonds. Records in Series F 1432-2, F 1432-3, and F 1432-4 appear to have been left undisturbed from the time of Dewan's retirement in 1943 until they arrived at the Archives of Ontario in 1989. Files in Series F 1432-1 and F 1432-5 appear to have had items added and removed throughout the period prior to their transfer to the Archives of Ontario.
