    Scope and content

    Series consists of audio recordings presented to or regarding W.A.C. Bennett. Items were produced primarily by radio stations, although some were created by private citizens.

    The series focuses on a variety of subject matters regarding Bennett. The majority of the reels document tributes and dinners which were given in honour of the Premier. Several of the reels also document interviews with Bennett as well as many radio commentaries on his performance as Premier. Finally, a significant number of reels document political functions and gatherings which Bennett attended. These include the Ottawa Conference on the Constitution, a Social Credit leadership convention, and the provincial Social Credit convention of 1963.
