The diaries were in the possession of Albert Mills' daughter Isabel Dales of Meaford, Ontario. She gave permission for Gerald and Helen Hobbs to have them microfilmed when they were doing research on the Gospel Workers Church.
This material forms part of the General Council program of the United Church of Canada Archive.
