Custodial history

Immediately after the publication of the history book in 1984, the working files which constitute this fonds were bequeathed to the museum.

Scope and content

1 green, 4-drawer, legal-width filing cabinet containing many file folders. The fonds consists of file folders that contain the original compiled information that was used by the 17 local residents that comprised the History Book Committee who compiled and published “Indian Head: History of Indian Head and District” in 1984 (ISBN: 0-919781-26-8). The book is 798 pages and is available on-line in the University of Calgary’s digital collection: This fonds contains source photos and documents that were used in the compilation of the book. The file folders also contain materials that did not make it into the history book and may be of use to archival researchers.
The top two drawers contain local family histories in alphabetical order, while the third drawer contain files with other aspects of Indian Head history (agricultural history, religion, recreation, organizations, military, education, etc.)
