History / Biographical
Ruby Mae Hamilton (March 17, 1928-August 20, 2018) was one of the founding members and past President of the Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG) Toronto. Ruby and her husband Wally were both active members of PFLAG Toronto since the early 1990’s until Ruby’s resignation and retirement on October 14, 2000. Hamilton was also the chairperson of Phone Tree, PFLAG’s phone line that mostly served parents of LGBTQ+ children from 1995 to 1996. Under Hamilton’s leadership, PFLAG Toronto was involved in the Toronto Task Force on Community Access and Equity, Toronto LGBT Community Police Liaison Committee, and have worked on projects with groups such as the Rainbow Radio and initiatives with the Toronto District School Board.

Conservation
Records were removed from binders, box spacers, non-archival folders and boxes. Paper and metal clips were also removed from textual records.
Arrangement
From the initial donation, records were in folders with labels by subject and PFLAG’s activities without any specific arrangement. They were rearranged based on Ruby Hamilton’s involvement with PFLAG, PFLAG’s structure and activities, and the types of materials. Items catalogued separately were integrated in this fonds.
