Title: Major Bennett IODE

Dates of Material: 1935, 1946-2004

Physical Description:
10 volumes, 2.75 m.
Bound scrapbooks, 1 m
Total 3.75 m

Scope and Contents:

Records, 1951 to 2002, of the Major Bennett Chapter IODE; Minute books and financial statements of the Catharine Parr Traill IODE, 1946-1965; and occasional records, 1961-1985, related to the provincial and national meetings of the IODE, together with information from other branches as received usually by the regent or the secretary. In addition to the many minute books, treasurer’s books and notes, the papers contain an extensive record of newspaper coverage, and many photographs of IODE events. Particularly impressive are the records related to the annual Valentine’s Ball, 1954 to 1980, which contain correspondence and materials related to organizing such a major annual event. Also noteworthy are the ten scrapbooks, most with specially designed covers, covering from 1950 to 1965. Newspaper clippings after that date are done in photo albums or are loose in files awaiting someone to make a fancy scrapbook. The Globe, 6 May 1935, had a special section for the silver jubilee of George V. The papers are arranged according to the following series:

Custodial History:

The files were donated to the Trent Valley Archives in 2003-2006, and were organized according to the nature of the records. Some of the files were not explicitly labelled and efforts had to be made to determine provenance of the particular files. Where that proved impossible to determine, the files were described by contents. It appears that the records were accumulated annually by the current office holders and then were passed on to the successors. There is not always uniform agreement on the required tasks. As well, we still need to do more consideration on determining the provenance of different parts of the fonds. It seemed reasonable to assume that certain continuities indicated likely provenance. While organizing papers not otherwise identifiable it was discovered that many completed the series that we identified with the successive regents or secretaries. Some remained unclear and because of content were arranged by subject with Social and Publicity. As most people kept the records with them while in office the papers lack the uniformity that would come had the organization had a fixed office. Considerable effort was made to keep files together as they had been created even though the files were placed next to those that seemed related. The contents of such files are clearly indicated in the finding aid in order to ensure maximum accessibility.
The papers were organized by Marianne Mackenzie, Alice Mackenzie and Elwood Jones.

Biographical Sketch/ Administrative History
The papers permit a significant study of the history of the IODE, worldwide as well as locally. The organization began in 1900, and local branches began as early as 1911.
