Biographical sketch / Administrative history:
Anne Louise Heideman was born in Peterborough, Ontario, on April 4, 1908, to Robert Heideman and Emily McGraw. Anne Heideman was a staunch proponent of preserving Peterborough’s historical artifacts and documents, and became the second president of the Peterborough Historical Society after its rejuvenation in the 1950s. She worked in an insurance office during the early part of her career, and was elected first curator of the Peterborough Centennial Museum in 1968. She was instrumental in extending the museum’s mandate (and, consequently, its name) to include archives.

Upon her retirement in 1973, she continued to work as a volunteer with the emergent Hutchison House Museum, the parish archives of St. John’s Anglican Church, and was among the first volunteers at Trent Valley Archives. She also served on the Board of Directors of the Ontario Historical Society and was a recipient of the Peter Robinson Medal.

Anne Heideman passed away on December 25, 2001. She was predeceased by her brother, Alan, in 1968.

Custodial /Administrative History:
The papers were donated to Trent Valley Archives by Anne Heideman between 1998 and 2001. A reprint of the 1908 Sears Catalogue, issues of Ontario History, and issues of Imperial Oil Review were transferred to the Trent Valley Archives research library.
