Administrative history

The York-Sunbury Historical Society was formed in 1932 in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Major W.G. Clark was the first president. The aim of the Society was "to gather and preserve objects and traditions of historical interest in the region of central New Brunswick, especially the counties of York and Sunbury, and to read and publish papers dealing with the same." A library and museum were begun in the Fredericton Post Office in 1932 and moved to the Officers' Barracks in 1934. The society published "The Officers' Quarterly". The York-Sunbury Historical Society provided the much needed service of collecting and preserving records before the Provincial Archives was established. In 1968 the bulk of their collection was transferred to the Archives. The society is active in 2003.

Custodial history

The bulk of the material in this collection was assembled by the York-Sunbury Historical Society and deposited with the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick in 1968. New material continues to be added.

Scope and content
