AAO Organizational History Project - Seeking Contributions

22 Feb 2016 7:18 PM | Danielle Robichaud

The AAO is compiling an organizational history to be published in celebration of its upcoming 25th anniversary in 2018. To capture the scope of our organization, the history will begin before the 1993 amalgamation of the OAA and OCA and stretch back to the 1960's and the development of Ontario's archival network.

An Organizational History Committee has been struck to spearhead this effort. One of the goals of the Committee is to identify sources that can be accessed while writing the history. The Organizational History Committee will be reviewing the association’s records but also wants to capture the knowledge and memories of AAO members and past volunteers. If you have information about specific time periods, committees, conferences, or input regarding the evolution of the organization, we want to hear from you! Keep in mind that the history will reflect the organizations that eventually amalgamated into the AAO, and input from those early years is greatly appreciated.

To the members of our community who have already contacted us expressing their desire to be part of this project and their specific areas of "AAO expertise," thank you!

If you have any input to share and would like to contribute to this project, please contact Paul Henry, Organizational History Committee Chair, by email.
