A collection of papers pertaining to the Keemlé family of Delaware, Washington, and Toronto. Although the family was American, several lived in Toronto in the years immediately before the First World War. One son, Ned, enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force at the beginning of the hostilities and was killed in France in 1915. Another son, Louis, enlisted in the American forces later in the war, but survived. The family also had connections to St Michael’s College, University of Toronto.
