Archival home wanted for material on 1918 Spanish Influenza Epidemic in Canada


Recently Library and Archives Canada received the following e-mail regarding archival material that is available about the 1918 Spanish Influenza Epidemic in Canada. Library and Archives Canada is unable to acquire this material because it is outside of our current acquisition criteria. Your cooperation in finding a home for this material would be greatly appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Larry McNally

My mother, Eileen Pettigrew wrote The Silent Enemy: Canada and the
Deadly Flu of 1918, published in 1983. Sadly she passed away in August
and I am looking for a home for her research. I have a filing cabinet
of her notes, photos and interviews with people, many of whom are
deceased and so can’t be replicated. Please let me know if this is the
kind of archival information your organization would want to maintain.
If not, any ideas about who to contact would be greatly appreciated.

Yours truly,

Anne Pettigrew
