Notice biographique

In 1932, aged 18, Art Karras and his older brother Ab sought adventure - and their livelihood by trapping - in Northern Saskatchewan. Raised on a farm on the prairie, neither had been in a canoe and both were almost completely unfamiliar with the lifestyle they had chosen. Years later, Art wrote about the seven years they spent in the north. That book, North to Cree Lake, became a bestseller - largely through word-of-mouth and through Art's promotion - and is now in its 5th printing. Many consider it a classic of Saskatchewan literature. Karras' second book, Face the North Wind, told the story of two other trappers, Fred Darbyshire and Ed Theriau; and his third book, Northern Rover, is the story of Olaf Hanson (for whom Hanson Lake, and road, was named). Art Karras was born in 1914 in Rosthern and was raised in Yellow Grass. He worked as a trapper, grain buyer, town administrator, and school administrator at various locations throughout Saskatchewan. He died in Nipawin on 29 April 1999.

Karras, Secretary-Treasurer of Indian Head School Unit #19. The letters apparently relate to school consolidation. The first letter announced an Indian Head School Unit Board meeting to be held in April to which all rural school district delegates were invited. The second letter announced the 49th Annual Convention of the Saskatchewan School Trustees Association at the Hotel Saskatchewan in Regina on March 9-12, 1964, and invited rural school district delegates to attend at their own expense. A folded undated piece of paper entitled "claim for hail damage (Harry Hitchens - labour) was also in the envelope with the inscription on the reverse "(Mrs) Muriel Prior Secretary Sunny Slope S.D. #1843".
