Biographical history

The collection of Albert H. Schwenger (d.1977) represents items collected over a period of years by Mr. Shwenger. He was an avid collector who gathered a wide variety of material including newspapers, photographs, artifacts and documents, dating from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and generally of the Niagara area. On many occasions, Mr. Schwenger shared his collection with the public through speaking engagements and museum loans.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The portion of Albert Schwenger's collection housed at Queen's University Archives is divided into two manuscript series. The first series consists of documents related to the Milne and MacKay families. The papers originate with Captain William Milne who settled in Ancaster where his daughter Anna Maria married into the MacKay family in the 1820's. His correspondence comments of trade conditions, relations in the native community after the Treaty of Greenville and European wars. Of particular note is a letter of introduction for Captain Milne written in Turkish from 1799. The second series consists of unrelated historical documents primarily from the Niagara area, but includes one British document.
