This popped up in my CBC news feed, but the Winnipeg Free Press had 
more details.

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.
