Primary Sources

All newspaper articles used for this Twitter presentation and related dissertation chapter are located in Algonquin Park Museum newspaper clippings scrapbooks, which can be accessed at the museum in the park. If interested in specific articles/topics, please contact me. I surveyed hundreds of clippings for this chapter, so its nearly impossible to list them all here.

  • Report of the Royal Commission on Forest Reservation and National Park (Toronto: Warwick and Sons, 1893).
