Public History Digital Archives Project

This is the home of the Public History Digital Archive at the University of Windsor. It brings together thematically organized digitized archival materials from the archives of the Leddy Library that capture part of the unique history of Windsor & Essex County. Students in the Public History course have also contributed their unique historical scholarship to tell the story of these collections. The group projects created by our students are presented as multi-page exhibits whose story is connected to a unique collection from the archives at the Leddy Library. They deal with topics such as the history of a local parish community, Assumption College, a famous murder trial, and much more. Please take your time exploring the contributions from our young public historians.
