Name of creator
The Iron Molders' Union of North America (prior to 1881 known as the National Union of Iron Molders) established five locals in Canada before 1859: Montreal, local 21; Hamilton, local 26; Toronto, local 28; Brantford, local 29 and London, local 37. By 1870 there were thirteen other locals, stretching from Halifax, Nova Scotia to St. Catharines, Ont. The activities of the Canadian locals in the later part of the nineteenth century are well documented in the Iron Molders Journal.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of one minute book covering the period 5 September 1872 to 27 February 1879. There are a few other scattered entries in the volume: 16 January 1872, 24 November 1881 and 1 December 1881.
Immediate source of acquisition
Fonds was purchased from Hugh Anson-Cartwright, a Toronto bookdealer, in February 1988.
