Name of creator
The Queer Peel Oral History Project was a student-driven initiative that emerged from a third-year history course taught by Prof. Elspeth Brown at the University of Toronto Mississauga in early 2020.
Immediate source of acquisition or transfer
Interview recordings were created and submitted by student interviewers at the University of Toronto Mississauga as partial fulfillment of requirements for an undergraduate course. Of the 25 interviews originally created, this collection is comprised only of those recordings for which voluntary written consent for archival deposit was obtained from both the student interviewers and narrators. Recordings were donated on their behalf by Elspeth Brown (course instructor and project director) at the conclusion of the course in 2020.
