Fonds consists of records documenting five generations of the Almon family and related families. Includes microfilm reels containing correspondence, financial accounts, legal and probate records, and letterbooks of WJ Almon and Son. Fonds also includes original and typescript copies of correspondence, short-hand diaries of Susanna Almon, literary manuscripts, legal records, newspaper clippings, articles, certificates, ephemera, Dr. Bruce Almon's register of infectious diseases and medical case histories, meterological readings taken by Cotton Mather Almon, and a scrapbook originally compiled by Senator W.J. Almon and later continued by his granddaughter Susanna. The scrapbook primarily covers the early 1700s to ca. 1954 and contains photographs, lithographs, newspaper clippings and other original material and reproductions concerning the Almon family and other early New England and Nova Scotian families such as Ritchie, Johnstone, Dodd, Byles, Cotton, and Mather, many of which were related to the Almons. Scrapbook also includes mention of "Rosebank", the Almon estate in Halifax, and local and international events. Fonds also includes records relating to Mary and Catherine Byles, daughters of Rev. Dr. Mather Byles, and original letters written to Philip Dodd, seizing officer in command of provincial schooners, from Joseph Howe, Hugh Bell, and James B. Uniacke.
