PERMANENT ARCHIVES


The Mariposa Folk Foundation and its feature event, The Mariposa Folk Festival, have a long and rich history. Fortunately, much of that history has been chronicled in a variety of media over the years. Many of these documents are now being generously preserved at the Clara Thomas Archives and Special Collections. This repository is housed at York University.

Historically important items were collected during a decade long search by the Mariposa Folk Foundation Board of Directors. Materials gathered included; programs, newsletters, photos, posters, recorded music, clothing, and primary documents. The result of that effort was a donation-in-kind through the York University Foundation in June of 2007.
