The collection is comprised of correspondence, articles, telegrams and official military documentation collected and received by Martha and George Lockyer from their son, Chris Railton Lockyer who died on active service (17 August 1917) in the Battle for Hill 70, near Vimy. The collection also includes a number of letters from Alec Lockyer to his parents and siblings. This material was organized by Don Lockyer into two named volumes "Far from Home" and "Somewhere in Europe". The volumes intersperse non-contemporaneous articles and materials framing and contextualizing this material within a larger narrative. Also included are some supplemental letters, photographs and a memorial marker for C.R. Lockyer.
The collection consists of sound recordings produced by or at Queen's University, previously collected by the Library or otherwise lacking provenance. Includes recordings of convocations, lectures and addresses, installations of Principals, and oral history interviews.
Collection consists of the personal diary of MacMartin describing his trip to Northern Ontario to conclude negotiations of Treaty No. 9 - The James Bay Treaty with Ojibway (Anishinaabe), Cree (including the Omushkegowuk) and other Indigenous Nations (Algonquin); plus various transcriptions and ancillary material.
