All items were either received as gifts or purchased by Bruce P. Dancik between 1962-2015. The collection was donated to Bruce Peel Special Collections in 2015 alongside his collection of over 3,000 angling books.
Scope and content
The collection consists of fishing-related ephemeral material such as brochures, maps, photographs, two photo albums, magazine clippings, catalogues, typed speeches, menus, and anglers' ticket books. The majority of the items are from various locations in Canada or the United States of America. Non-North American items include four brochures from New Zealand, and several miscellaneous items from the United Kingdom. Most of the ephemera are from the mid-twentieth century, but the dates are as early as 1909 and as late as 2000. Many of the items in this collection also cover outdoor recreational activities popular at their time of creation.
Items range from good to excellent condition.
