Name of creator
Huge Guthrie was born in Toronto in 1931, but much of his early schooling was completed in Guelph. In 1952 he earned a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Toronto and in 1956 he graduated from Osgoode Law School. That same year he was called to the bar and served as a solicitor for the County of Wellington. He also practiced law in Guelph with the firm Hungerford, Guthrie, and Berry for over fifty years.
Hugh Guthrie served on various boards of corporations and associations such as Linamar, Homewood, and St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church. He was interested in sports particularly show jumping, but was also a supporter of the Guelph Historical Society, and was a committed Tory.
Hugh Guthrie died in 2010, at the age of 79, after a brief illness.
Scope and content
Fonds consists of records created or accumulated by Hugh Guthrie in his capacity as secretary to Progressive Conservative Party South Wellington and as a partner in the law firm Hungerford, Guthrie, and Berry. The records document his involvement in leadership conventions, provincial elections, meetings of the party, and his practice in law. A portion of this fonds is comprised of by-laws collected by Hugh Guthrie pertaining to the City of Guelph.
The fonds has been arranged into four series.
