This popped up in my CBC news feed, but the Winnipeg Free Press had more details. http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/local/u-of-m-rejects-massive-donation-of-recordings-90816414.html The University of Manitoba first accepted and then rejected a donation of 56,500 discs. Some points in the article don't seem to hold up (like dates and record types), but here is a collection of 56,500 discs dating back to 1913 that appears to be looking for a home. The collection apparently stops about 1990. Cheers, Richard Richard L.
