Name of creator
Donna Rosalie Bronson grew up in Craik, Saskatchewan, and attended the University of Saskatchewan. She graduated with a BA in 1930.
Donna left the scrapbook in her will to [her relative] Corey Tackaberry, who donated it to the University Archives & Special Collections in August 2016.
Scope and content
This scrapbook, “College Days,” contains materials collected by Donna during the years she attended university. Much of the material relates to student events, including initiation; banquets (“The New Girls’ Banquet given in honour of The Old Girls”); dances sponsored by Pente Kai Deka, Arts and Science, the Engineering Society, and the Literary Society. It also include various clippings about University faculty and students; some material relating to student elections (Sexton, Culliton, Mackenzie); the 1927 program for Varsity Follies; the 1926 commemoration service on November 11; class timetables, etc. Also included are original ink drawings, of a couple dancing, and of “Study Hour at Varsity,” as well as photographs of Donna and classmates “Mac” [Mary McLeary], Eleanor Knox, Winona Yager, and Hazel [?], as well as a group known as the “Swift Current gang.” Also included are samples of University stationery, a letter, song lyrics and college yells, various ads, including one for the Halfway House, etc.
Much of the material was taped or glued onto the scrapbook pages, and the pages themselves are loose. The scrapbook should be handled with care.
