It provides a pictorial record of hydro developments in northern Manitoba and of the growth and demise of northern towns and settlements. Major and cottage industries, wildlife, flora and fauna of Manitoba are included. Among the portraits are native peoples, early missionaries and settlers and contemporary civic minded individuals. The research materials are on miscellaneous topics paralleling those of the picture collection.

Gordon Ritchie Fonds

  • MSS 035 (A1980-011)
  • Fonds
  • 1968-1970

The Ritchie Collection consists entirely of the office files he generated as a Member of Parliament from 1968-1979. It does not contain any of his medical papers, files on his patients, or any other documents not directly related to his political career.

Unlike many other Members of Parliament collections, Ritchie’s has a very complete run of his speeches and parliamentary reports through the years which, more than any other records, provide a strong sense of his politics, views and philosophies. His constituency files provide the researcher with a fairly good prospective on the attitudes and concerns of western Manitobans throughout these years.

  • MSS 048
  • Fonds
  • 1836-1977
