The archival records of English professor and University of Winnipeg historian, A. Gerald Bedford, are available for research. The records include historical research material; records of when he was a student; records detailing his academic career including faculty records, his professional associations, course materials, professional correspondence, and addresses and writings; as well as some of his personal records.

Most likely in his capacity as University historian, Bedford accumulated original materials from other prominent individuals within the UWinnipeg community, including Reverend George Bryce (founder of Manitoba College), William John Rose (first Wesley College Rhodes Scholar and professor of Classics and Mathematics), and alumnus Edith Baragar.
