Archival description area
Prior to 1970 historically important records were held mainly in the Bishop's Office. In 1970 Monsignor Neville Anderson was appointed the first archivist and arranged the materials in their own storage area.
Scope and content
The fonds consist of records created by the Bishops of Calgary, and by the offices under their jurisdiction. They deal with records concerning clergy, religious orders, institutions, church organizations, other dioceses, and the Vatican. The fonds contains correspondence, manuscripts, historical information, news clippings, photographs and some audivisual material.
