Biographical history

Ewart Kenneth "Grub" Fockler was a consulting mining geologist based in Toronto, Ontario. Originally from Newmarket, Fockler graduated with a degree in Geology and Mineralogy from the University of Toronto in 1927 and began work as a consulting geologist in the northern Yukon and the Coppermine-Great Bear Lake area. He later became a senior member of the Society of Economic Geologists and the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, as well as a founding member of the Geological Association of Canada. Fockler died on April 1, 1998.

Custodial history

Fockler bequeathed the collection to the geography department at Nipissing University, which received it after his death in 1998. The geography department subsequently transferred the collection to the archives in 2010.

Scope and content

The collection consists of geological maps, aerial photographs, and mining and geology publications collected by Fockler during the course of his career as a consulting geologist. The collection also contains material relating to a mineral exploration in northern Quebec that Fockler was involved with in the 1940s.

The collection is arranged into five series: Air photos of northern Ontario and Quebec; Air photos of Ontario highways; Geological maps; Mining and geology publications; New Quebec mineral exploration project.
