Name of creator
The first deposit to the fonds was made by John Gilmore in 1987. These materials, which were donated to the Concordia University Archives, were sent to Gilmore from Jean Préfontaine in 1985. The fonds has grown over the years, with deposits made by Eric Fillion in 2015, 2016, and 2019.
Fillion obtained the materials in his first and third deposits from Diane Dupuis, the wife of Jean Préfontaine. Materials in his first donation were given to Fillion from Dupuis in April 2012. These were donated to Special Collections in March 2015. Materials in his third deposit were sent to Fillion on February 28, 2019 by Dupuis. These were donated to Special Collections in May 2019.
Materials from Gilmore's original donation were transferred from Concordia University's Records Management and Archives Department to Concordia University Libraries' Special Collections March 16-17, 2016.
