File contains photographs taken on campus of spray painted messages related to Egerton Ryerson and his role in Residential Schools in Canada. The messages were created in response to the discovery of the remains of 215 children at the site of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School located on the Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation. On June 6, 2021 after a march and rally in Toronto, the statue of Egerton Ryerson was pulled down. The plinth it sat on was later removed by the University.
The photographs were commissioned by the Office of the President and were taken after the statue was pulled down and the plinth was removed. The photographs are of the messages of protest that were spray painted and chalked on the walls of Kerr Hall, the sidewalk and road in front of where the statue was located, on the stones in Lake Devo, and on the walkways in the Kerr Hall Quadrangle. There are also photographs of the areas around where the messages were located - Gould Street and the Kerr Hall Quadrangle.
