OCAD University Archives

Moving OCAD U Offices Yields Valuable Archival Treasures!

The recent relocation of departments to 230 Richmond St. W. has stirred up some great archival material that was stored in the offices. For example, the University Archives has recently received diplomas and certificates from as early as 1974, printing plates and embossing stamps of the Ontario College of Art’s 1957 trillium logo, and a pin of the school’s 100th anniversary logo from 1976.

Do you have photographs, ephemera, or other material you think may be appropriate for long-term preservation in the Archives? Please contact Scott Hillis, Acting Archivist, at We can liberate the material and make it available to the entire community!
