The item is a photocopy of a diary which relates to the working and personal life of William Hendry Ranson. The diary appears to have be put to paper in 1903, but is perhaps based on, or a compilation of, other notebooks and diaries, as the detail of the material (such as specific dates and times) appears to be too precise for mere recollection. The diary has no entries for dates between 1899 and 1914. The subject matter of the diary covers Ranson's military service, his work with the Brockville and Ottawa Rail, and the distillery as well as events such as his children's birthdays, deaths of friends and family, and other holidays. Entries for Christmas day, New Year's day, and his wedding annivesary tend to include more personal information.
The fonds consists of correspondence, sermons, speeches, broadcasts, printed material and some obituary notices.
