At the Public Archives in Ottawa in 1968, Ted Regehr, head of the Government Records Section, standing, helps research assistant Ernie Dick locate government files related to Mennonites. The two were assisting historian Frank H. Epp with a monumental history of Mennonites in Canada project. Regehr remembers, “When previously Mennonite historians had relied mainly on Mennonite church, conference, community, family and personal papers, Frank asked us to identify relevant government records,” to provide a deeper understanding of the Canadian Mennonite story.
