Geschiedenis van het archief

The materials now constituting the A. H. Howard fonds, apart from the sketchbooks, were left unclaimed with the Art Museum of Toronto following its memorial exhibition for A. H. Howard in 1916. In 1921 they were given to the Museum, along with the sketchbooks, by the artist’s son, C.S. Howard. For several decades the materials were in the Canadian Historical Study Collection of the Art Gallery of Ontario. They were transferred to the AGO Research Library and Archives in 2007.
