In 1945, Stan Stakiw established “Stan’s Photos” in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. Shortly thereafter, exact date unknown, he bought “Avalon Studio” from Bill Johnson and renamed to “Stan’s Avalon”. “Stan’s Avalon” relocated onto Broadway Street and re-opened as “Avalon Studio”, in early 1950. Avalon Studio included: a camera shop, frame shop & studio. In 1955 or 1956, everything was lost in a fire. In 1957, Avalon Studio reopened on 2nd Avenue. About ten years later, in 1967, Morris Stakiw joined his father’s business. Avalon Studio was a very popular studio for individual and family portraits. The photographers were called upon to photograph community events, such as grand openings, special events, graduations and other celebrations. In 1973, another photographer, Bill Kish, retired and sold some files and equipment to Avalon Studios. After Stan passed away in 1980, Morris carried on with the business until the summer of 2015. Due to flooding in 2010 and 2012, the owner decided to close its doors. The majority of the business records were destroyed.

Basilian Fathers (CSB) of Saskatoon

  • Corporate body

The Basilian Fathers of Saskatoon, Roman Catholic priests of the Congregation of St. Basil of Toronto came to Saskatoon in 1936 at the request of Bishop Gerald Murray CSsR and President Walter Murray of the University of Saskatchewan to found a Catholic college in federation with the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon. For the first thirty years, the local Basilian council also served as the governing council of the college, but in 1966 two separate councils, a Basilian council and a college council, were formed. Because of the overlapping of the Basilian religious community and the faculty of St. Thomas More College, the history of the two was at times inseparable. Much of the history of the college, therefore, can be found in the Basilian records and similarly, records of the college provide information about the history of the Basilian Fathers of Saskatoon.
