Name of creator
Vera R. Currie (nee Baity) is the daughter of Lyla R. Baity (nee Wilkinson). Vera's mother was born in 1912 on the Beatrice (nee Barnum) and Jack Wilkinson homestead near Tisdale, Saskatchewan. This farm was sold following the First World War, and the Wilkinsons moved to Quesnel, British Columbia, where Lyla remained. Vera Currie was born in Quesnel, and attended school there, but moved to Salt Lake City, USA, after marriage.
Items originally belonged to Lyla Baity. They were donated by Vera R. Currie to the Melfort & District Museum.
Scope and content
The collection contains four scanned black and white photographs that include images of the Wilkinson children (Claude, Kathleen, Ken and Lyla) in the 1920s, of harvest near Tisdale at the Hugh Barnum farm in the late 1920s, of Lyle Boice Barnum holding Lyla Baity (nee Wilkinson) in the 1910s, and a formal portrait of Malcom Barnum (left) and Hugh Barnum (right).
