Archives and Collections Society

Archives and Collections Society

The "Archives and Collections Society" is a not-for-profit foundation, incorporated in 1999, dedicated to maritime history and conservation, marine research and nautical education, based on the shores of the Great Lakes, in Picton, Ontario.

The Society specializes in maritime heritage and history - steam and sail, naval, merchant and yachting, mostly Canada/US and Europe, mostly 18, 19, 20th century. The collections range from about 11,000 books in the reference library, to paintings and engravings, other artwork and photographs, a very extensive collection of magazines, journals and periodicals, manuscripts, log books, charts, video, film and sound tapes.

The Society also took over the Canadian Society of Marine Artists in 2003; this has expanded the art holdings quite considerably.
