Name of creator
Alison (Campbell) Hermon was the niece of Lillian May Hamilton (wife of Dr. T.G. Hamilton), who became internationally recognized for his psychical research experiments into séance-room phenomena in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She was a University of Manitoba Home Economics graduate, class of 1945.
The fonds was donated to the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by Alison (Campbell) Hermon in two accessions, in 2007 and 2009, with a third and final accrual transferred by the Survival Research Institute of Canada in 2010.
Scope and content
The fonds contains textual, photographic and digital records. The textual records include handwritten and typewritten correspondence relating to séances and spirit communication between family members. The photographs are black and white and color images of members of the Campbell and Hamilton families. The digital records consist of one compact disc of scanned images of family members and another compact disc with scanned copies of minutes relating to the Sylvia Barber séances (A.10-82). There are 32 physical photographs and 277 digital photographs comprising the photograph collection.
