Custodial history

In 1992, the Friends of Hatley Park started a project to gather resources that helped to tell the history of Hatley Park. Laura (Dunsmuir) Mitchell loaned some photographs from her personal collection for this purpose. The Military College photographed and shared copies of the subsequent negatives and prints with the library for its historical collection that later became the university archives. Paper documentation with the original loan states that there were 24 photographs. Two images of the castle were not copied as they were already part of the library collection, having been previously loaned by Laura. Two further photos were not copied as they were already shared by Joan Humphries Luttmer (family group at Journey’s End).

Scope and content

Photos of Dunsmuir family members at Hatley Park and other locations. Some formal portrait photos are included.
