The Cape Breton Regional Library promotes and supports the preservation of Cape Breton’s cultural history, as well as the use of technology to ensure this preservation. We would like to acknowledge and thank @NS for the funding to make this online project possible. The Freeman Collection was made available to the Cape Breton Regional Library thanks to support from the estate of Dr. Robert Morgan.
