Études, correspondance, procès-verbaux, réglementations gouvernementales, groupes d'oppositions sont maintenant disponibles pour le chercheur qui s'intéresse aux luttes qu'ont dût mener les francophones de Saint-Jean pour le droit à l'éducation en français dans cette ville pro-loyaliste anglophone.
