Title: Ruth Brummel Fonds

Creator: Ruth Brummel

Repository: Trent Valley Archives

Reference number: TVA Fonds 276

Scope and contents: The fonds consists of Ruth Brummel=s copy of The Peterborough Normal School Year Book, 1931-32.

The yearbook, with heavy cover stock, is complete but end pages showing some foxing. The book contains much information about the Normal School, as well as about the teachers and students. It contains some very useful photographs of student boards, and some events. The class pictures are group portraits.

The book was published by the Literary Society of the school. The members of the yearbook staff were Lloyd Saunders, Dorothy Hicks, Arnold Noftall, George Turner, Mary McConkey, Luella White, Winnifred Rickard, Gordon Davis, Emmeline Bannister, Mr MacDonald, Lorene Adams, and Max Parnall.

There are two pages of autographs. The second page is devoted to the AY@ Girls who give contact addresses. A few of these give YWCA as their address, while others list their homes. This is a good sample of the reach of the Normal School.
