Custodial history

These items were found in a box that was labeled “Uncatalogued Allan Blakeney Gifts” amoung books that were destined for cataloguing and inclusion in Special Collections. Found amounts these items were these notes which supply hints to when they were received and where they were meant to go. A note signed by Anne and Allan was included with the Mac Hone cards which references Hone’s death in 2007, so these must have come after that, but before Blakeney’s death in 2011. Another note in the box (“Video tapes for archives (Jan 08 decision)”) suggests the material was here before the end of 2008.

Scope and content

This fonds contains audio visual material relating to politics. Primarily interviews, speeches, and some produced content. Both recorded from radio/television, and possibly some that appear to be recorded first hand.
