The SJ McKee Archives at Brandon University houses a wide-ranging collection of unpublished archival records related to the history of Brandon College / Brandon University and the Manitoba Pool Elevators, as well as records - minutes, correspondence, programs, catalogues, oral histories, photographs, scrapbooks, blueprints, videos and artefacts – documenting the history of the City of Brandon and southwestern Manitoba.
The McKee Archives holds special collections of published archival sources, the earliest dating from the 18th century. These include the Robert Dudley Howland collection of Fabian tracts, the George Thorman collection of school textbooks and the Manitoba Pool Elevator library.
Formalized as a collection in the 1960s under President John E. Robbins, the purpose of the Brandon University Art Collection is to collect and make accessible works of art for teaching and research purposes, to increase the enjoyment and enrichment of both the University community and the general public, and to preserve significant artifacts that contribute to an understanding of the founding and development of the University.
The Archives is located in the John E. Robbins Library and is open by appointment. Our contact information is below, or you may add items to your selection list and submit a request to us for more information about them.
