Institutionele geschiedenis

During World War I veterans of Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI) in Ottawa began to gather informally. The Patricia Club of Ottawa was formed 27 December 1917. Other Patricia Clubs were later formed in some of the larger Canadian cities. These clubs provided personal assistance to veterans and their families as well as other public services. Following the Second World War, on 18 May 1946, Hamilton Gault organized the first meeting of the PPCLI Association. On 13 September 1953, the PPCLI Association was incorporated and took over governance of the PPCLI Regimental Museum and Archives. In 1994 the assets and control of the Museum and Archives were returned to the Regiment. As of 2017, there were 10 Branches of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry Association across Canada, each with its own Executive overseen by the National Executive.

Geschiedenis beheer

The basis of the PPCLI's archival collection was an accumulation of memorabilia and photographs collected in the Commanding Officer's office since 1919. Since its incorporation in 1953 the PPCLI Association has encouraged veterans and serving members to contribute their personal records, photographs and artefacts. Inactive records and regimental memorabilia sporadically arrived from the Regimental Depot which became Regimental Headquarters in 1969. Archival material was also collected from the Department of National Defence, the National Archives, and affiliated regiments and organizations. The collection was arranged and described in accordance with a classification system by the volunteers of the PPCLI Association. In 1994 ownership of the collection was legally transferred to the Regiment, as part of the Regimental Museum and Archives, and it became the foundation of the Archives collection. The attempt to arrange the Regiment's entire archival collection in terms of a classification system was abandoned around 1998. In 2014 the Regimental Archives initiated a system of arrangement by consecutively-numbered archival fonds and collections. The PPCLI Association textual records collection was then designated Collection 1.

Bereik en inhoud

The collection is classified into 38 series representing broad subjects, periods of regimental history, and units within the regiment. Many of the series are further divided into sub-series. Files are generally described to the item level. Many of the files contain material both "about" and "created by" the subject. The collection consists of correspondence, nominal rolls, ledgers, scrapbooks, war diaries, Part I and Part II Orders, maps, blueprints, annual reports, meeting minutes, newsletters, magazines, newspapers, clippings, programmes, posters, postcards, souvenirs, and personnel documents documenting regimental activities and achievements during war and peace times, and the service of individual members of the Regiment. Also included is biographical information on the Colonels-in-Chief, Colonels of the Regiment and other Regimental personalities. Some series include pamphlets and other ephemera related to military history, regimental traditions, the Regimental Colours, training policies and procedures, uniforms and equipment, allied regiments, the airborne role, the Regimental Band, mascots, and sports. Also featured are records of the Regimental Executive Committee, the 75th anniversary celebrations of the Regiment, the PPCLI Cadets, and the biennial Exercise Ric-A-Dam-Doo conference. Significant personal papers and collections of regimental leaders and personalities include those of Princess Patricia (Lady Patricia Ramsay), Lady Patricia Brabourne (Countess Mountbatten of Burma), Hamilton Gault, Cameron Ware, G.G. Brown, and W.B.S. Sutherland. Individual collections contained within the collection include those of W.E. Bastedo (who corresponded with many Great War veterans in the 1960s), BAJ Franklin, K.F. Bunyan, E.K. Fitzgerald, Hub Gray, Eleanor M. Rieger, John Milburn, Leslie A. White, and Stephen Trache. Significant personal papers within the collection include those of Agar Adamson, Leslie W. Basham, K.C. Burness, George S. Currie, James A. de Lalanne, Walter Draycot, Dorothy Gault, Victor F. Gianelli, Stanley Jones, F.J. Kendall, N.J. McFarlane, Hugh M. McKenzie, Jenny Macgregor Morris, Donald Munro, Hugh W. Niven, D.F. Parrott, John Louis A. Robertson, and Peter Worthington. Generally, documentation of activities more recent than 1994 has been reassigned to other fonds and collections at the PPCLI archives, but some more recent records that document earlier activities continue to be added to the collection.
