Patterson purchased the items that make up the collection between 2012 and 2018 from antiquarian booksellers in the UK.
Scope and content
Collection consists of 17th to 20th century English manuscript records and publications that were collected by Mount Royal University professor Diana Patterson. The collection contains a wide variety of personal, legal, financial, and religious records including: diaries, travel journals, correspondence, wills, commonplace books, transcriptions of philosophical and literature texts, poetry, and sermons. Patterson intended the collection to be used to teach English and History students about paleography, scholarly editing, primary source research methods, and the history of the book.
