The collection consists of photographs, including albumen prints and cabinet cards, and albums; a minute book of the Kingston Racing Association (1882), and an illuminated parchment being a 'Resolution of Appreication' to J.B. Carruthers from the City of Kingston (1888); correspondence; and a scrapbook, all of which relate in large measure to either the Carruthers or Beeman families.
This collection consists of indices referencing Queen's University publications.The indices were originally on index cards (Faculty Index and Queen's Alumni Review index), and in print (Queen's Quarterly and Queen's Gazette).
The collection covers a scope of 40 years. There are posters from many clubs and groups on campus, many of which are no longer in existence. The material is arranged along very loose lines, sometimes classified by subject, sometimes by creating body. Looking under multiple headings is suggested.
