Administrative history

Ontario's Heritage: A Guide to Archival Resources, Volume One, Peterborough Region was published in 1978 by the Toronto Area Archivists Group (TAAG) with Robert D. Taylor-Vaisey as the Regional Project Director. Ontario's Heritage is comprised of 15 volumes covering the different regions of Ontario. The project was conceived by Robert Taylor-Vaisey when he saw the need for a series of guides identifying research resources in local regions of the province. Each volume was an attempt to indicate both the extent and availability of records relating to each of the 15 regions for researchers. By approaching TAAG and preparing a proposal with Gordon Dodds, Taylor-Vaisey was able to get the project off the ground. The project was funded through a grant under the Wintario's Heritage Conservation Programme through the Ministry of Culture and Recreation. TAAG sponsored the project with support and personnel in aid of publishing the volumes.
