Material compiled on people, groups, and events
The CLGA has thousands of vertical files. Half provide information on Canadian organizations, individuals and events; the rest hold material from outside Canada.
Unlike archival records, material in a vertical file was not originally gathered by the person or group named on the file. Instead, it is about that person or group — compiled by the CLGA over time from other sources.
The guides below list over 5,300 vertical files held at the CLGA pertaining to Canadian organizations, plus organizations/individuals in the United Kingdom. Guides are in alphabetical order, so it's easy for you to check whether we have a file on a given person, group, or event.
