Royal Caledonian Curling Club, Canadian branch fonds

[textual record, graphic material, object]


3.54 m of textual records.
3 photographs: b&w.;
2 pins: gilt enamel, silver.


In 1838, the Grand (later Royal) Caledonian Curling Club was founded in Scotland with the purpose of uniting curlers throughout the world. In 1852, representatives of the Quebec, Stadacona, Montreal, and Montreal Thistle curling clubs met in Montreal to establish the Canadian Branch of the Royal Caledonian Curling Club in order to promote the game in Canada. Curling clubs from Ontario and Quebec joined the Branch, but as the game became increasingly popular in Ontario, where clubs predominantly used granite stones rather than the irons employed by Branch clubs, other curling associations were organized. The Branch's membership became restricted to parts of Quebec and Eastern Ontario.

In 1904, a group of women curlers met to form a permanent organization for yearly bonspiels, and the following year their committee adopted the name Ladies Curling Association. The Granite Curling Association was established in 1924, to encourage the granite game within the Canadian Branch. In 1950, the operations of the Granite Curling Association and the Canadian Branch were amalgamated. In 1956, the Canadian Branch became affiliated with the Dominion (later Canadian) Curling Association which included all other provincial curling organizations in Canada.


Fonds consists of club records, comprising minutebooks, letterbooks, incoming correspondence, financial material, and other records of the Canadian Branch, 1852-1962; minutebooks of the Granite Curling Association, 1924-1950; minutes, letterbooks, scrapbooks, club histories, and other records of the Ladies Curling Association, 1904-1986; historian's files, n.d., 1940-1986; scrapbook, 1929-1930, 1941-1948.

The fonds also consists of 3 photographs, which are a group photograph of members of the Victoria Curling Club who won the Clyde Park Cup, Brookline, Mass., 13 March 1937; a group photo of officials of the Heather Curling Club and members who won the Governor General's Trophy, Montreal, Que., 1939, photo by Associated Screen News; and a photo of the General Dyde Trophy, Royal Montreal Curling Club, Que., n.d.

The fonds also consists of 2 pins: one pin commemorating the 75th anniversary (1979) of the Ladies Curling Association of the Royal Caledonian Curling Club - Canadian Branch and the other pin, a District 2 L.C.A. Centre Winner medal for 1971-1972.
