Name of creator
Accession donated by Mary Elizabeth Duff.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of materials created, received, and collected by Mary Elizabeth Duff during her involvement in advocating for women and lesbian rights in BC. The records consist of documents, reports, and pamphlets that relate to various women’s organizations and women’s rights activism. The fonds also includes a significant amount of ephemera and promotional materials for various women centered events and activities.
Immediate source of acquisition
Materials were donated as 2 boxes of mixed materials with no original order, so a structure was imposed by the archivist.
The donation also included a number of serials and published materials such as LesbiaNews, Tapestry, Images: West Kootenay Women’s Paper, Lavender Rhinoceros, and Lesbian Connection which were separated from the accession to be catalogued into the main library collection.
