History

MCC has long collected and preserved its organizational records in the interest of documenting and making its history accessible for both internal and external use. In 2012, the MCC archival collection was consolidated into two main holdings. MCC archival records are located in the U.S. (Akron, PA) and Canada (Winnipeg, MB), and archives staff in Akron and Winnipeg work together to preserve and provide access to MCC's Archival Records.

Access conditions and requirements

To make general inquiries or to access records in MCC’s archival holdings, contact MCC archives staff. Because MCC records are housed in both Akron and Winnipeg, it is in researchers’ best interests to contact archives staff with research requests so staff can identify where relevant records are located and advise on how best to view them before an in-person visit.
Researchers will be required to complete an archives user agreement before accessing records. Please note that some records in the MCC archival holdings may be subject to access restrictions and will not be made accessible.
