The research files on this page are available to our current students, faculty and staff only. If you have any questions or have a research request, please contact Christina Barwinsky.

Research files are working files created by the Archivist in response to a curriculum need or repeated research request. The files provide duplicates of original records including yearbooks, Focus Magazine, scrapbooks, newspaper clippings, photographs, and other historical documentation to support student research.

Many of these files have been digitized and linked below. If a file does not have a link, to access the physical file, please contact Christina Barwinsky.

If an archival document belonging to The Martin H. Ainley Archives Centre is cited in the text of a work, a complete reference to the document is also required. The individual elements of the reference will vary according to the format of the archival document. If an archival document belonging to The Martin H. Ainley Archives Centre is reproduced as an illustration or facsimile, the credit line must, at a minimum, include the name of the author or creator (if known), the words ‘The Martin H. Ainley Archives Centreʼ and the reproduction copy number. This credit line must be placed directly below or beside the reproduction. Any alterations to the image, such as cropping or retouching, must be indicated in the credit line by using the words "detail" or "based on". For use on television, in a film, video, or in a slide presentation, a single credit to The Martin H. Ainley Archives Centre in the acknowledgements is acceptable.
St. John’s-Ravenscourt School was founded in 1820 principally to serve the children of the Selkirk settlers. By 1834 there were forty students, evenly split between boys and girls. SJR has inevitably grown and changed over the years since, though its success throughout has been unimpeachable. We have graduated 18 Rhodes scholars, for example, and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II granted patronage and established a scholarship in her name in 1981. Today the programs are as strong as our reputation. A strong academic program is paired with an equally strong attention to the values of stewardship, ethical leadership, and excellence in all areas of academic, social and athletic life.
