A collection of papers presented to the Thunder Bay Historical Society are now available on microfiche. These reports begin in 1908 and continue until 1928 and include a solitary report from 1967. Publication began again in 1973 and these volumes are available separately. (See Papers & Records). Papers presented in the earliest years of the historical society include topics that range from flooding in Fort William and Port Arthur to grain handling and transportation to personal reminiscences of local residents. Many of the papers are illustrated with photographs and are wonderful examples of early history in the Thunder Bay area. Includes an excellent index. The index, compiled by F. Brent Scollie, is also available separately in paper copy.
F. Brent Scollie has contributed to the Dictionary of Canadian Biography and has written
extensively on the history of Northwestern Ontario.
