There is memorabilia in the form of selected greeting cards and files on trips taken over fifty years provide some insights on cultural and intellectual influences. Material on Arts and Law reunions and anniversaries at the University of Toronto, Cambridge University, and elsewhere provide additional comparisons of “then” and “now”.

The large number of photographs provides visual documentation of the family spanning a century.
