Notice biographique

Mary Morrison Hore, daughter of the geologist and author Reginald Edwin Hore (b.1881, B.A., Trinity College, 1905) and Ruth Hore (b. ca.1891), was born in Oakville, Ontario, ca.1916. She attended Oakville High School and entered Trinity College in 1933, attending until 1935 without receiving her degree. Her sister Catherine Ann Hore (b.1928) also attended Oakville High School and entered Trinity College in 1947, receiving her B.A. in 1950.

Histoire archivistique

Before coming to the archives, the scrapbook pages were disassembled and the binding was discarded. Pages where the photographs had largely become detached were discarded by the archivist after extracting the remaining photos. The extracted photographs were numbered on the back as to their original pagination and position beginning at the top left. They were then arranged in polyester sleeves following their original layout.

Source immédiate d'acquisition ou de transfert

The scrapbook was donated to Trinity in 1981 by the executrix of Mrs. Disher’s estate.
