Ryerson’s Library and Archives collection

Kodak Roll film holder
Patent 22351 paper

Toronto. When you decide to do research on our rich photographic history, remember the resources we have in our university archives. A great example is the fabulous collection housed and inventoried by Ryerson.

Member George Dunbar sent an email recently to a number of us asking, “Is everyone aware of the excellent photography archive at Ryerson University?┬áIt’s here, at the University’s Archives and Special Collections site.”

Ryerson was the recipient of most of Kodak Canada’s records when it was seriously impacted by the digital wave that almost destroyed the still film industry from maker to consumer. The Kodak papers have been complimented by many other artifacts including donations by PHSC members Lorne Shields and Nick Graver. Well worth a look!
