Administrative history

The Leonard Foundation was created in 1916 and revised in 1923. It manages a charitable trust and financial assistance program for students with an emphasis on financial need rather than high academic achievement. The Foundation was one of the legacies of Ontario philanthropist Reuben Wells Leonard.

Custodial history

Records were donated to the Dalhousie University Archives by Eric B. Mercer in 1995.

Scope and content

Fonds comprises The Leonard Foundation records regarding scholarships granted to Dalhousie University students between the 1940s and 1990s. Records include correspondence between the University Registrar's Office and The Leonard Foundation, application forms, committee reports and meeting minutes.
