Fonds consists of Aemilius Irving's records relating to his role as counsel for the Ontario government during disputes with the federal government. Included are: correspondence, notes, drafts, clippings, financial schedules and statements, telegrams, some printed court records, transcripts, evidence collected to support the Ontario position in the arbitration proceedings, typed transcripts of the proceedings of arbitration between Canada and the provinces of Quebec and Ontario, printed copies of court documents, copies of printed government records and publications, and copies of court cases unrelated to the arbitration.
Fonds also contains blotter copy letterbooks of Aemilius Irving, financial records and material related to his one term as Member of the Canadian House of Commons for Hamilton.
Fonds has, for the most part, been kept in its original arrangement, which consisted of consecutively numbered packages, with each package containing records relating to a particular subject or court action. This arrangement also segregated the records into three general groups of material: manuscript records, bound typed transcripts, and printed material. Portions of most of the court actions were spread throughout these three divisions (for instance, material relating to the Common School Fund case may be found in the manuscript, transcript, and printed sections)
Sir Aemilius Irving, Q.C. (1823-1916) was a federal Member of Parliament, a lawyer, and was Counsel for the Ontario Government during the Settlement of Accounts Arbitration with the Dominion Government and Quebec, and during the litigation of several jurisdictional disputes between the two levels of government.
