I'd imagine that there's a wealth of information out there about the early days. Same probably goes Montreal, New York, Chicago, etc.
All those old newspaper articles are all stored at their respective cities' libraries - in microfiche format. A larger library MAY be able to import some of those archives, but I seriously wouldn't count on it. In most cases, it would likely require physically going to the libraries of those cities, fully expecting to spend a weekend or so in the library just browsing the articles and taking notes.
