The Board of Commissioners fonds contains letters from Calgarians, which address a wide variety of issues. Topics that may generate little controversy today often stimulated passionate responses in earlier times. One such example is this 1917 letter written to Mayor Costello regarding a pamphlet about a birth control play, which was being delivered to people's homes.
