They document his interests in photography, especially of antiquarian Scotland and ethnology, and include many images of places he visited in Canada and the United States such as the White Mountains in New Hampshire where, on holidays, he painted many watercolours. Also included here are images of Toronto, the University of Toronto, the Toronto Magnetic and Meteorological Observatory, and two of the American Civil War.
Note on Sir Daniel Wilson
Sir Daniel Wilson was an accomplished amateur artist and much interested in the new medium of photography. He collected photographs, primarily in the stereographic medium, wherever he travelled and asked his friends to send images to him. He travelled widely following his arrival in Canada in 1853. In his first decade “he went as far south as Virginia and Kentucky, as far east as Prout’s Neck, Maine, as far west as the St. Louis River, and as far north as Lake Nipigon” . He travelled many times along the St. Lawrence River and the Saguenay in that decade and later, made two trips to the upper Great Lakes (1855 and 1866), was introduced to the Green Mountains in New Hampshire and the Adirondacks and historic sites in New York, and in 1862 visited Washington and Civil War battle sites in Virginia. In 1863 he returned to Britain and Europe for the first time (he would go to again in 1878, 1880, 1885 and 1891). In the 1870s, his travels to him along the Muskoka and Severn Rivers (1870), and to Native sites in Kentucky and Ohio (1874).
After Wilson became President of University College in 1880, he sought escape from the heat of Toronto summers in New Hampshire and the eastern seaboard of the United States. In August of 1881 he first visited the White Mountains in New Hampshire where he was inspired to take up painting again, and to which he returned in 1882, 1883, 1886, and from 1887 to 1890. There, with his wife Margaret until her death in 1885, and his daughter Sybil, he sought out sites “with indelibly North American names, in which he clearly revelled” – Black Mountain, Cascade Brook, Mount Osceola, Mount Tecumseth, the Mad River, and Scar Ridge . In 1883 he vacationed along the Atlantic coast of Maine and in 1884 he went to the Adirondacks around Lake Placid.

These personal records consist mainly of records documenting Clara Benson’s non-professional activities such as work with the Women’s Athletic Association of the University of Toronto, the YWCA and her relationship with family members and friends. The personal correspondence in Series 2 provides the most detailed information about her relationship with family, friends and activities. Letters from her parents and siblings provide an insight into her activities and progress at the University of Toronto during her undergraduate years. A few letters, however, will be found from colleagues at the university such as Prof. A.B. Macallum, Prof. Annie Laird and others.
Unfortunately documentation relating to her academic activities is limited to some correspondence and notes found in Series 5 relating to her efforts from 1920s onwards to have the Women’s Athletic Building built. Her early education in Port Hope is documented in the school books, essays and other records in Series 4. Series 4 also contains her framed diplomas for B.A. and Ph.D. No manuscripts of her publications, including her Ph D. thesis appear to have survived. The lecture notes in Series 7 do provide some indication of the content of her courses in food chemistry, and were probably used repeatedly, year after year.
Dr. Benson also recorded her travel and sightseeing activities both abroad and in Canada on film. Series 10 contains 50 rolls of 16mm film documenting her trips to Egypt (1926), England (1937 and late 1940’s and early 1950’s), South America (1939) and the United States (1939, 1948). Some of her leisure time, both while at the University of Toronto and after her retirement, was spent filming events and scenery in Toronto in general, and the University in particular, as well as her family at home in Port Hope.

Fonds consists of the personal and professional papers of Dr. Clarence B. Farrar. These records broadly document all aspects of Dr. Farrar’s long life - from his childhood in Cattaragus, New York during the 1870s to his active retirement in Toronto during the 1960s. Most of the records concern Dr. Farrar’s professional activities at Sheppard Enoch Pratt Hospital, New Jersey State Asylum, the Department of Soldier’s Civil Re-establishment, the Homewood Sanatorium, Toronto Psychiatric Hospital and the U. of T. Department of Psychiatry. Types of professional records include: administrative correspondence; research notes; lecture notes; patient files; brain slides; and photographs. Further, this fonds also contains Dr. Farrar’s correspondence with the greatest doctors and psychiatrists of his time - William Osler, Franz Nissl, Emil Kraepelin, C.K. Clark, and Edward N. Brush. This fonds also includes Dr. Farrar’s personal records such as photographs of and correspondence with family members and colleagues.
However, in addition, to documenting Dr. Farrar’s life, these records are also significant because they shed light on the history of Canadian psychiatry. Little is known about psychiatric teaching and clinical practice in the first half of the twentieth century. Dr. Farrar’s records therefore provide a much needed commentary on this period. Indeed, Dr. Edward Shorter, the Hannah Chair in the History of Medicine at the University of Toronto, writes: “Through Farrar’s long career in North American run some of the fundamental themes of psychiatry and the history of psychiatry … He participated intimately in these events and left us a full record” .
