Name of creator
Series 1 is entitled "The Seagram Memorabilia Collection" and contains some of the documents originally in that collection when it was housed at the Seagram Information Centre in LaSalle, Quebec. Some items were not originally in the Memorabilia Collection but were later Museum acquisitions.
Scope and content
The materials in this collection were assembled by Seagram Museum staff from a number of sources and reflect the museum's focus on the beverage alcohol industry in the North American context. It contains articles, clippings, correspondence, ephemera, etc. and includes correspondence with wine merchants re shipments by sea, information illustrative of bootlegging, prohibition, temperance, etc.
This fonds also contains accession registers, correspondence, invoice copies, purchase order copies, and other materials relating to the acquisition of book and archival material by the Seagram Museum Library and Archives.
Immediate source of acquisition
Donated in 1997 by The Seagram Museum and The Seagram Company.
Arranged in four series:
1. Seagram Memorabilia Collection;
