Our Archive Catalogue

The Nellie McClung Foundation has begun to digitize a collection of unique source materials. What you will find in this database is a small selection of catalogued items primarily focusing on the history of Nellie McClung and the women’s movement in Canada.

Please check back regularly as we will continue to add to our archive of primary sources and expand our collection categories and topics.


Don’t keep it locked away where no-one ever sees it! We are very interested in receiving items for use in our educational archive.

We are currently looking for stories, letters, photos, artifacts (i.e. vintage posters, newspaper articles, etc.) on Nellie McClung, the women’s movement, suffragists, the temperance movement, women’s rights milestones and victories.

We’d be happy to return your item after its been scanned and catalogued, preserving it for posterity. We’ll provide credit and ownership attribution on your behalf. See Contact for more details.
