Physical condition

Good. Two sections of The Sun newspaper were discarded due to their extremely poor condition.

Immediate source of acquisition

Glennis Clifton of Swift Current donated the majority of the records, which originally belonged to her husband, to the Swift Current Museum in January 2018.


No formal arrangement has been applied to the ca. 1 cm of textual records (8 pages of 1st orders issued) that are part of A.2003.12 in this fonds; however, a series has been added for them in case the records are found and can then be added to the box.
