Halloween in Edmonton: 1900-1950
This bibliography is designed to situate the records used in the City of Edmonton Archives Halloween in Edmonton: 1900-1950 virtual exhibit in their larger context. It shows where these disparate records come from by grouping them by creator rather than by subject.
Wherever possible, links to catalogue entries in our online catalogue have been included. We also have some further catalogue information in our reference room.
For an explanation of terms and acronyms, see our Virtual Exhibit Glossary.
