Dorset (England) manuscript collection

  • MS134
  • Collectie
  • 1796

The collection consists of seven inventories, compiled for each Dorset parish, of the number of farmers, livestock, amount and type of crops (dead stock), number of servants who can be mounted on horseback, number of servants who can be armed with pickaxes and shovels. The inventories were collected by Lord Milton's Corps of Yeomanry Calvary, the volunteer Dorset Rangers. It seems likely that the inventory was prepared in anticipation of a French invasion.

Eighteenth Century Newsletters collection

  • MS139
  • Collectie
  • 1719-1720

This collection of newsletters was written in London by John Farr and his son John Farr Junior between 25 June 1719 and 10 September 1720. They were sent periodically to Francis Thistlethwayte in Winterslow, Wiltshire. The number sent varies from five to fourteen per month. The content includes: military and naval affairs, especially the war with Spain; foreign news from Europe, Jamaica, Newfoundland, and the Americas; news from Scotland and Ireland; commerce and shipping movements; natural disasters such as earthquakes; criminal affairs, spies, murders and arrests; deaths and the funeral of Joseph Addison; legal reports, stock reports and quotations, South Sea Bubble, politics and Parliamentary affairs.

The most likely Francis Thistlethwayte to be a recipient of the newsletters was born in 1658 and attended New College Oxford. The date of his death is uncertain but his father, Alexander (1636-1715) was long-lived. John Farr signed one newsletter dated 12 December 1719. There is a note on the verso of the 17 December 1719 newsletter by John Farr Junior.

Henry George Thode fonds

  • RC0130
  • Archief
  • 1932-1996

There have been two accruals. The first accrual (24-1997) consists of nine series: National Research Council/Atomic Energy Canada Limited; McMaster University; Nuclear reactor and Nuclear Activation Services; experiments and research; correspondence; conferences and lectures; Thode's publications; biographical material and reprints. Fonds includes: 11 figures, 4 certificates, 2 posters, 17 maps, ca. 209 photographs, ca. 60 negatives and ca. 550 slides. There is material contained within this fonds which came from the papers of two individuals who worked very closely with Thode, Dr. Jan Monster and Dr. C.E. Rees. Both men were colleagues who co-authored a number of publications and participated in a number of joint studies with Thode. Dr. Charles Edward Rees died while at McMaster, and it would appear that Dr. Thode assumed control of his papers. Dr. Rees's papers were discovered within the accession. Most of his papers were deemed to have no permanent archival value, but those that were linked closely with Dr. Thode remain in the fonds where appropriate. Dr. Jan Monster was a long-time research associate. Thode supervised and oversaw much of Monster's work. The funding for Dr. Monster's position ended in the mid to late 1980s. Dr. Thode assumed control of many of the projects being worked on by Dr. Monster. This can be seen in the fonds with the inclusion of the Monster Reports within the experiments and research series. The second accrual (40-2007) consists of Thode's many awards, a collection of stamps from the Soviet Union, and a plaque issued by Yorkton, Saskatchewan in 1909 to its mayor.
