Doris, is that you?

Hi there. My name is Asiya and I am a Special Collections Project Assistant at the Rare Book Room. I am currently in my second year in the Urban Planning program here at the University of Waterloo. Though I am limited in my knowledge of archival practices, I have learned quite a bit over the past couple of months.

Ghosts in Special Collections & Archives

Guest post by Heather MacDonald. Heather is currently on contract in Special Collections & Archives, transcribing material from the Maines Pincock family fonds.

Just in time for Hallowe'en, we bring you a post about the ghosts hiding in our Spiritualism and Theosophy collection! These spirits lurk in the séance transcripts and can be heard through the spirit trumpet, which make up part of the Maines Pincock family fonds.
