The Winnipeg Tribune, one of western Canada's oldest newspapers, ran from 1890 to 1980. The Tribune was a rival to the Winnipeg Free Press. While it had excellent coverage of local events and personalities, it also reported on national and international news.
After the sudden collapse of the newspaper, the paper's "morgue files", dating from the 1930s to 1980, consisting of photographs and folders of clippings on local, national and international subjects and personalities, were acquired by Archives & Special Collections. Subsequently, three collections of Tribune negatives were also donated by private citizens. Microfilms of both the newspaper and the subject folders are also available.
Please note: The Archives never received an index to the voluminous Personality Files. If you are researching an individual, please contact the archives' staff directly for confirmation of the existence of material on that particular person.
