Name of creator
No much is known about the creator of the fond other than the fact that Hilda Reesor was the granddaughter of Daniel Fowler, an early Canadian painter, who farmed and lived on Amherst Island, Ontario.
This material was transferred from the Agnes Etherington Art Centre which had received the material in conjunction with the deposit of an album of sketches by Daniel Fowler. The material was of no use to them and fell outside their collecting mandate and so offered the material to the Archives which accepted the transfer.
Scope and content
Fonds consists of numerous photographs: albumen, carte de visite, and portraits of various Reesor or Fowler family members, though predominantly the subject matter of the photographs is Hilda Reesor. The photographs reflect a range of photographers, from Toronto to Kingston. Also contains a small amount of correspondence and numerous Christmas cards to Hilda Reesor.
Immediate source of acquisition
Gift of estate of Hilda Reesor (via Dorothy Farr).
