Scope and Content

Series consists of public correspondence created or received by Premier Mitchell F. Hepburn during his time in office.

The series, taken as a whole, gives a comprehensive picture of the administrative routine and organization of the Hepburn Government. There are no files in this series dating from 1938-1939 and 1943 (the files from the latter year may simply have been absorbed by Hepburn's successor, George D. Conant). It is not known what happened to these records. Furthermore, it is evident that certain files have been "weeded" or removed altogether prior to their arrival at the Archives. This is particularly true of the period 1937, 1941-1942.

Specific topics such as government policies toward Ontario Hydro and the Temiskaming and Northern Ontario Railway, party patronage, provisions to combat the great depressions, the Saint Lawrence Seaway, relations with the Dominion government, the Separate Schools question, the Dionne quintuplets, Liquor Control, the great Oshawa strike, and election tactics are documented in this series.

The subject files that comprise this series are arranged alphabetically.
