Name of creator
Alma Criddle (1924-2001) wrote a history of her family entitled Criddle-de-diddle-ensis in 1973. She was born to Barbara Coates of Winnipeg and Talbot Criddle (1890-1975), and had siblings David, Paul, and Ernest. She died in Wawanesa, Manitoba. Criddle worked as a nurse in Winnipeg. The family moved from Addlestone, England in 1882 to Aweme, Manitoba to farm. Her paternal grandmother was Mary Ann (Alabaster) Criddle (1804-1880), a British painter. Further biographical information is unknown.
Records have been presented to the Carberry Plains Archives in 1990,1993 and 1994 by Alma Criddle, then of Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Scope and content
Fonds consists of photocopied pages on Mary Ann (Alabaster) Criddle from the 1981 "Index to Artistic Biography", and the 1976 "Dictionnaire Critique et Documentaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs", a list of paintings by Mary Criddle shown with the Royal Academy of Arts between 1837-1848, and a biography. Other textual material includes correspondence, biographical information on the family, Henry Criddle's will, a certificate for Prairie Patron for Alma Criddle, 7 partial maps showing the Aweme area, and an introduction for the Criddle display in Brandon City Hall. Black and white photographs show Norman Criddle, aerial views of St. Alban's, Aweme (1942-1958), Bald Hills and the Punch Bowl of Spruce Woods Provincial Park (1942). Coloured photographs are by Barbara Criddle of an unspecified place taken in 1971 of the Spruce Woods Provincial Park sandhills.
