Custodial history

Records in the fonds were likely transferred to the archives between 1925 and 1986. Their original provenance is unclear.

From 1925 through to 1982, the official repository for Conference, Presbytery and local records of the United Church in Saskatchewan was at St. Andrew’s College (Saskatoon). In 1982, the Conference signed an agreement to house their records with the Saskatchewan Archives Board (later Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan), while still retaining ownership and management responsibilities. The collections were gradually relocated and continue to be stored with the Provincial Archives, to the present day.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of letters and photographs (some with explanatory notes) sent to members of the Harris family – including Mrs. Oliver Harris, Eva and Lucy Harris – by members of the Methodist clergy who had served at North Portal, Saskatchewan.

Contents include letters from and/or relating to: Jesse Arnup, 1907-1936; Mrs. Charles Endicott, 1904-1910; Herbert Harris,1911-1912; Herbert Harrison, 1913-1914; Ethan Riley Hine, 1907; Fred Martin, 1910; F.G. Norris, 1919; and Rev. Thomas Oliver, 1916-1923. Photographic portraits accompany the Arnup, Harrison, Hine, and Martin documents.
