History

The records in this series relate to the functions of the Microfilm and Records Branch. This branch, under Director Tom Rannie, provided all City departments with services ranging from folding, inserting and metering of mail plus special deliveries and regular daily pickups and deliveries of mail, as well as providing microfilming services. The City of Edmonton established their first 16 mm microfilm program in 1952 in conjunction with Civil Defense for the security of essential documents. During the late 1960s this program was expanded to combine both 16 mm and 35 mm microfilm systems which gave complete flexibility and had the added advantage of making use of equipment in the Computer Operations Centre.
