Alexander Fraser Award

 Colonel Alexander Fraser was born in Scotland in 1860 and arrived in Canada in 1886. Shortly after his  arrival he became a staff member of the Toronto Mail. In 1903, Fraser was selected as the first Archivist of  Ontario and served in that capacity until his retirement in 1935. He was involved in and assumed  leadership roles in many local societies and also edited and published many books and articles including a  two volume history of Ontario.

 The Alexander Fraser Award is given to individuals who have contributed in a significant way to the  advancement of the archival community in Ontario. Achievements may range from written and visual work  to involvement in organizations or participation in projects. This award is designated to recognize  cumulative contributions rather than any single activity. Generally speaking, contributions need to go beyond a specific archives or community.
