This facsimile reprint of A History of Kitchener, Ontario by W. V. Uttley is a faithful reproduction of the original work, including all of the original content, and not changed in any way other than the addition of a new title page and foreword.

Uttley was eminently qualified to research and write the history of Kitchener (formerly known as Berlin) insofar as he was a respected local journalist and newspaper owner. He owned three Berlin/Kitchener newspapers that eventually published under the single name of the Berlin Daily Record. Retiring in October of 1919, Uttley sold his newspaper interests to W.J. Motz and William D. Euler, who renamed it The Kitchener Daily Record. A History of Kitchener, Ontario was written late in Uttley's career. It was published in 1937, just seven years before his passing in 1944.

Global Heritage Press prepared the historical reprint using the original leather-bound first edition that was owned by former Canadian Prime Minister, The Rt. Hon. W. L. MacKenzie King. King's book included a personal letter from the author which is bound into it, ahead of the title page. In that letter, Uttley thanks King for purchasing his book and writes that he hopes that "the book comes up to expectations". We reproduced that letter and have included it on the page following the new foreword.

We are pleased to make A History of Kitchener, Ontario available to the public once again, and are confident that the book will come up to your expectations.

The extensive table of contents and list of illustrations (below) best describe the content of this fine local history.
