November 11th Closure and Remembering Gladys Arnold

The Dr. John Archer Library & Archives will be closed for Remembrance Day on November 11th.

To mark the day, we share a poignant letter from the Gladys Arnold collection in University Archives. Gladys was a Saskatchewan journalist, and the only Canadian correspondent in France at the outbreak of the Second World War. She wrote this letter to her parents less than a year before the formal declaration of war. Learn more about Gladys’ archival collection at
