Name of creator
Evelyn Anderson (nee Goodson) was born August 10, 1913. Her parents, William Hayle Goodson and Mary Goodson (nee Bevington), had emmigrated from Nebraska, USA to the Naisberry, Saskatchewan district ca. 1911. As William Goodson had poor health, the family spent time both on the farmstead and in nearby Melfort, Saskatchewan. Evelyn's education was obtained at the Naisberry school, the Melfort Public School, and the Melfort High School. She briefly joined her sister in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, but did not enjoy city life, so returned to Melfort. Evelyn worked at Stewart's Store and Harry Hunter's Bookstore in Melfort during the 1930s. She married Bert Anderson in 1932. Following the marriage, the two moved to a farmstead, but would later move back to the town. The Andersons had five children.
Scope and content
The collection contains eight black and white photographs from Evelyn Anderson's personal fonds. The collection includes formal portraits of Evelyn Goodson taken in 1930, photographs of the Melfort Public School, the Melinda School, and the Melfort High School and students, as well as a photograph of a Goodson family gathering in the Naisberry district. Two photographs are copies made ca. 1996, while another photograph is a scanned copy made in 2003 all done by the Melfort & District Museum.
