    Biography/Administrative history:
    The Toronto Star was established in 1892 as a Liberal paper. In 1899 Joesph E. Atkinson was hired to run the newspaper, and by 1913 he had become the majority shareholder. Under his control, the Star stressed human interest and local issues over broader coverage, and became dominant in Toronto and southwestern Ontario. One of its affiliates was the Toronto Star Weekly, founded in 1910. Among the paper's best-known staff writers were Ernest Hemingway, Morley Callaghan, Gordon Sinclair, and Greg Clark. After Atkinson's death, the paper was run by son-in-law Harry Hindmarsh until his death in 1956. The Star's domination of the Toronto newspaper market increased in the 1970s after the demise of the Toronto Telegram. It continues to be published by the Torstar corporation, a limited ownership consisting of the Atkinson estate, and the Honderich, Hindmarsh, Tall, and Campbell families.

    Custodial history:
    Photographs were acquired from the Toronto Daily Star Library as "outs" from photo assignments. The Toronto Star retained photographic material which was used in their newspaper as well as selected other material considered to be of significance for their ongoing operations. The drwaings are political cartoons by Duncan Macpherson which were all that remained from the period of approximately 1954-1979 after the cartoonist sold, gave away, or disposed of those used in the paper.
