Custodial history

Papers were collected by former Simcoe College Foundation member Rusty Russell, who donated them to a former LUSU Orillia Vice President. The papers were then given to Lakehead University Library in Orillia. They were digitized in 2017.

Scope and content

The collection consists of newspapers (primarily the Orillia Daily Packet and Times) with stories related to the proposal to establish a campus of the Waterloo Lutheran University in Orillia.

The proposal made by the Orillia University Committee in September 1965 to Simcoe County Council to establish funding for the new university campus was approved, and $600,000 allocated. Fundraising commenced, but was halted in 1968 by the Ontario Ministry of University Affairs.
