The Reid family originated in Ireland and settled in Peterborough, Ontario, in 1822. Descendants have continued to live in the area for several decades, marrying into the Stewart, McNeill, and Godard families.
This dictionary was in the custody of Bette Reid before it was donated to Trent University Archives.
