Remarkable research collection related to all aspects of Upper Stoney Lake. Photographs (both digital and prints), research materials and correspondence relating to the production of the history of Stoney Lake book entitled Upper Stoney Lake: Gem of the Kawarthas. The research materials include newspaper clippings and brief written comments by people on the lake. Berry had several of the Roy Studio negatives printed as proof prints; this cost over $400 and very few were used in the book. There is a 1927 flyer for a pageant and a few vintage photographs in the collection. This is an excellent research collection by people who loved their subject.
Access Points: Upper Stoney Lake, Crowe's Landing, McCracken's Landing, Andre Dorfman, Lesley Wooten

Fonds consists of correspondence, databases related to cemeteries and genealogy. In file 319, Betty Craw in 1982 made the following observations:
“Compiling a record of Memorial Stones in over 200 Cemeteries in the counties of Peterborough, Victoria, Northumberland and Durham began in 1966. These publications are simply a labour of love – a memorial to my father and sister. The research developed into a rather onerous task when I realized how much information was being eroded by neglect, indifference, weather and sheer vandalism.” She thanked Alice and Marianne MacKenzie for their help in recording cemeteries. She also thanked Eileen Gariepy and Andre Dorfman.”
