File consists of one scrapbook documenting Phil Givens’ tenure as the City of Toronto Mayor. The scrapbook contains newspaper clippings, including news coverage, editorials, editorial cartoons, and columns pertaining almost exclusively to Givens’ campaign for, and time as, mayor. Also included are letters of congratulation for his December 1964 election victory.
The clippings have been glued or taped onto highly acidic paper. The paper pages are browning and brittle, as are the clippings themselves. Some of the adhesive tape is failing.
