    Scope and content

    File consists of one scrapbook which relates the history of Col. David Younger Public School. The scrapbook begins with documents relating to the building, naming and incorporation of the school. Included is a program for the school's official opening, a typed transcript of the dedication service delivered by a minister at the school's opening, a copy of the certificate naming the school and giving a brief history of Col. David Younger (January 15, 1906 - November 2, 1962), newspaper clippings about the opening of the school, a brief history of the school, Col. Younger wife's obituary (Helen Younger, nee Campbell December 8, 1909-March 10, 1980), a short biography of David Younger written by eight history students at Laurentian University in 1980, a short biography of former library clerk and supply secretary for the school Joyce Netzke (1925-2009), a brief history by Peter Hellstrom of his house on Hawthorne Drive, a historical list of the school's mailing addresses, a certificate incorporating the school into The Ontario Federation of Home and School Associations on March 6, 1962, an annotated half gestetner copy, half typed three page contact list for members of the Col. David Younger Public School Home & School Association, a biography for Muriel Lappas (Muriel "Woodard" Lappas), a teacher at Col. David Younger Public School, two newspaper clippings concerning the retirement of principal Ray Kaattari on June 17, 1988 and another newspaper clipping from the Sudbury Star dated February 18, 1993 recommending safety modifications to a slide in the school's playground which was similar in design to one involved in a child fatality. The scrapbook then lists enrolment statistics by room, grade and teacher for the years 1959 to 1996 and awards won by the students between the years 1971 and 1995. The last two sections of the scrapbook deal with the issues of overcrowding in the school during the years 1976 to 1977 and threats of school closure between 1978 and 1982. Included in these last two sections are newspaper clippings, copies of speeches and briefs prepared by the Parents' Advisory Committee for the Col. David Younger Public School and memos sent home to parents by the school and the school board relating to the issues of overcrowding and closure.
