Scope and content

Series consists of material relating to Barbara Turnbull’s personal life. It includes personal and academic files from childhood, high school, and post-secondary education at the University of Toronto and the University of Arizona. The series also consists of personal letters and cards received by Turnbull in the aftermath of the 1983 shooting which resulted in her quadriplegia. Many of the letters are from people who also resided in the Greater Toronto Area, who heard about the shooting through various media sources. The letters come from people of all ages, and occasionally are accompanied by a photograph of themselves, or their pets.
