Lynn Ridley

A U of G donor chose to honour the rural roots of her late uncle Glenn MacGregor by helping expand the collection of rural heritage materials in the Library's archives.

Lynn Ridley made a $10,000 gift to the Library from an inheritance she received upon the death of her uncle in 2004. MacGregor spent most of his life on a farm in Morewood, southeast of Ottawa, where he served on the local municipal council and wrote local history.

The donation paid for a summer student to finish cataloguing almost 2,500 International Harvester photos, making them available to users of the Library's extensive rural heritage collection.
