Custodial history

A 1998 edition of "Municipal elections in Edmonton" was donated to the City of Edmonton Archives. In the early 2000s it was removed from the Library and became a working copy that was annotated and added to over the years.

The binder of photos was created by the Archives, then was accessioned in 2008 as Found in Collection.

Scope and content

This series contains resources that were created by the City of Edmonton Archives as a means of responding to frequent reference requests. It includes the following two documents:

  • A binder of photos of Mayors, Aldermen, and Councillors (324.9 PHO). It contains copies of photographs from our collection and the collection of other archives, ranging from 1892 to the early 2000s.
  • An annotated document called "Municipal elections in Edmonton, 1892-1998 : summary of results with short mayoral and aldermanic biographies" originally created by Joseph Rek (324.9 REK 1998).
