Building Education – Public schools in Edmonton: 1881-1918
This bibliography is designed to situate the records used in the Building Education 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 the City Archives’ online catalogue have been included. There is also further catalogue information in the reference rooms at the City of Edmonton Archives and the Edmonton Public Schools Archives and Museum.
For an explanation of terms and acronyms, see our
Virtual Exhibit Glossary. Bibliography
