60 centimetres of textual records
Fonds consists of correspondence, minutes, resolutions and financial records of the Brock Monument Committee, including lists of subscription for militia members, private citizens and First Nations peoples. Also included in this fonds are monument design proposals submitted to the committee, an address to the Queen, and speeches given by First Nations leaders in support of the reconstruction of the Brock Monument.
These records document the work of the committee to raise funds and rebuild the Sir Isaac Brock monument at Queenston Heights which had been destroyed by vandals in 1840.
The fonds is arranged into seven series.
The Brock Monument Committee was organized in 1840 to erect a second Brock Monument to Major-General Isaac Brock, Commander-in-Chief of British forces in Upper Canada, at Queenston Heights in the present-day municipality of Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.
