Custodial history

Records of the Legion of Frontiersmen in Canada, compiled by BW Shandro from various sources, including museums, libraries, and archives across Canada, in effort to preserve the history of the Legion.

Scope and content

The archives consist of material compiled for Shandro's research purposes, including correspondence, other notes and textual material, various Legion publications dating back to the 1930s, photographs, artwork, and ephemera. Some items (Series 1, Folder 4; Folder 35; Series 2, Gazettes) contain French text. While some of the material relates to other commands, the bulk of the collection pertains to Canadian divisions of the Legion.
