What's New on Electric Canadian
Here I'm listing anything new added to the site over the past month or so. As my main work is on the Electric Scotland site I do need to focus mostly on that site so content will be added as I get the time but hopefully something will be added each week.

The O.A.C. Review (Ontario Agricultural College). Added some information on this publication and links to copies of it for you to read. It's about 4/5 down the page. For 72 years, from 1889-1961, this magazine was published annually by and for students of the Ontario Agricultural College. It provides a rich source of historical information about the department and its alumni as well as the social and agricultural history of Ontario. Regular columns from the Ontario Agricultural College and the MacDonald Institute for Women provide ongoing commentary on student life, detailing the academic, athletic and social events of each year. Feature articles address the scientific, social and political issues of the day, through the Great Depression and two World Wars. Photographs, special reports and advertisements enhance the historical richness of this publication. Material for this collection is provided by the University of Guelph Library.

I might add that around half way down the page I also added links to the 5 volume report made in 1881 of the Ontario Agricultural Commission. In 1881 the report was issued in five volumes. It was without doubt the most valuable commission report ever issued in Ontario, if not in all Canada. Part of it was reissued a second and a third time, and for years it formed the Ontario farmerís library. Even to this day it is a valuable work of reference, containing as it does a vast amount of practical information and forming an invaluable source of agricultural history.
