The most interesting archive website ever?

Dr. Thomas Neill Cream

A few questions you'll find answered on the McGill University Archives website:

Did a McGill student accidentally kill Harry Houdini?

Did 'Jack the Ripper' attend McGill University?

Am I a descendent of James McGill?

These questions are all answered at the website (here) on the very short list of FAQs. It makes for quite a change from the usual list of questions archives staff they think they might have to answer (ie how much does it cost to make a photocopy?). But maybe they really were/are frequently asked!
