Cameras were collected from students, faculty, and employees as well as purchased from local camera shows. The collection traced the history and development of the tools used in these fields. The collection was donated to both Brock University (motion picture and video materials) and the Ryerson University Library and Archives (still photography materials). Objects in the donation were distributed amoung the Heritage Camera Collection (2005.006), the Photography and Film Technology Collection (2005.005), and the Photographic Publications Collection (2005.003).
