The bulk of Asa Coy's records consist of general and family correspondence (MS8). General correspondence (1828-1865) pertains to business, religious, church, temperance, political, community, family and other matters. Correspondents include prominent Baptists and Baptist preachers, such as I. E. Bill, George Seely, Samuel Robinson, T. R. Estey, J. D. Casewell / Caswell, William Flint, Henry Blakoler, and A. S. Hunt among others, as well as political and public figures, such as Samuel Leonard Tilley (9 items), William Henry Steeves (36 items), Hon. A. M. L. Seely, and W. B. Kinnear. Of particular interest are letters from W. H. Steeves, written while he was attending the 1864 Quebec Conference, held to discuss the proposed Confederation of British North America.

The Tilley (1849-1855), Steeves (1849-1865), Morgan (1857-1861), and Green (1855-1859) letters have been separated from general correspondence and are located in MS8A 42, MS8A 43, MS8A 44, and MS8A 45 respectively.

There are also a few letters from Edward Harper, of Boston, dated 1861, that outline preparations for, and fighting during, the American Civil War.

Asa Coy's family correspondence (MS8B) includes about 168 letters from his wife, Mary Ann Coy, dating from 1828 to 1863, in which she discusses the growth and development of the Baptist Church in Saint John and Fredericton, the activities of Baptist preachers, the family's financial struggles, her attempts to make ends meet by taking in boarders and reducing expenses, family concerns over A.

Amnesty International

  • CA MtA 22
  • Fonds
  • 1969-1987

The fonds spans the time period from 1969 to 1989 and appears to cover the administrative organization of AICS (ES) at both the local and international levels until ca. 1980/81 when Group 4 became virtually dormant and Ferguson's involvement at the national level lessened. Although Group 4 reactivated in March 1983, Ferguson did not run for an executive position and thus there are fewer files, especially after 1985, when Group 4 relinquished the operation of the greeting card campaign.

Apparently it was AICS (ES) policy to request the return of prisoner files to the National Office "for shredding" after the release of the prisoner. Therefore there are only a few complete prisoner files, making it difficult to obtain a clear understanding of the way in which Group 4 acted on behalf of prisoners of conscience.

The fonds has been arranged into three subgroups. Subgroup I consists of secretarial files deposited by Janet Adams which date from 1979/80 and contains minutes, information concerning annual general meetings, etc. Some duplication with Ferguson's files exists; however, much of Ferguson's papers were annotated and thus Adams' "clean" copies were retained. The early secretarial records of 1969/70 to 1978/79 and the treasurer's records of 1974/75 to 1986/87 were found interfiled with Ferguson's records. However, the processor decided to place them in Subgroup I as it appears that they had been given to him for safekeeping purposes and were not integrated with his other records.

Examination of Ferguson's records indicate that he created new subject files annually and, for any given year, national and local records were filed together. Although it was tempting to separate the records into a national subgroup and a local subgroup, it was determined this would not only destroy original order, but also fail to adequately illustrate the breadth of activities in which Ferguson participated in any given year. Therefore, in Subgroup II Laing Ferguson's records are arranged into six series which represent the various offices he held over time, and one series which holds various Amnesty International publications which were found loose in the cartons. Publications of bodies other then Amnesty International were discarded. Records of a housekeeping nature were found among "Finances" and the "Fund Raising Greeting Card Campaign" subseries and were discarded unless they contained other relevant information. In most cases, financial summaries and distribution charts exist that summarize the housekeeping records. Duplicates existed in many files and, if not annotated, were discarded.

Subgroup III consists of records created by Janet Adams in her capacity as member of the Nominating Committee for the years 1974/75 and 1976/77. These files were well organized and arranged chronologically.

Anderson (family) (emigrés of Yorkville, England)

Anderson family (Sackville, N.B.)

  • CA MtA 137
  • Fonds
  • 1815-1932; predominant 1815-1863

Fonds consists of mostly marsh records, a bill, a letter, and a photoprint. The marsh records (Tantramar marshes) were probably kept by his great-great-grandfather, Thomas Anderson, Jr. (1775-1852), Commissioner of Sewers. Thomas’ name appears in several of the documents, one being the survey map (1825), along with the name of his son, John. The bill for the schooner “Bella” is signed by G. (George) Anderson, shipbuilder and master mariner, Sackville, New Brunswick. Anderson names appearing in the letter, T.R. (Captain Thomas Rheese Anderson) and Albert, are first cousins.
