Provincial Archives

Archives are responsible for maintaining and preserving our Guiding history and to ensure all future Members have the ability to learn about the efforts of our past sisters in Guiding. The Archives contains textual records, publications, program materials and photographs from 1912 to the present. We also have some uniforms and insignia and other artifacts that are relevant to the history of Guiding in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Archives purposes:

  • record and catalogue activities and events
  • preserve and store important items
  • provide historical documentation and information
  • support all historical research enquiries

On 8 Dec 2006, our Archives room was dedicated to Archivist Isabel Templeton for starting the collection of archival and museum materials back in 1971. Isabel has over 50 years of experience in Guiding and has served in more than a few Guiding positions over that time. For 30 years, with some help from family and friends, Isabel patiently and lovingly managed the former archives room. Thanks to her, we have an amazing collection of artifacts, scrapbooks, photo albums, uniforms, books and magazines dating back to the earliest years of Guiding in our province.
