Prairie Ephemera

The Peel library's collection of Prairie Ephemera is an eclectic mix of materials that provide insight into the region's political, economic, social, and cultural development. Covering both the public and private spheres, it includes materials that range from personal and business correspondence to photographs and memoirs; from printed advertisements and booklets promoting local businesses and cultural events to programs and catalogs related to local associations and unions; from reports, pamphlets, and advertisements about government programs and elections to documents pertaining to education and religion. Although some of these materials are from recent decades, most date from 1953 or earlier. More detailed information about this collection can be found in the finding aid here.
