The slides were used as the basis of his lecture tour "The Boers: Their Country, their Ways, their Neighbours, and their War." The fonds also includes some related textual records, two Brooke High School yearbooks (Rivers, Manitoba) and one film reel and program documenting the 1958 installation banquet for the Zeta Iota chapter of the Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity at the University of Manitoba, as well as a 1958 copy of the Fraternity magazine (Teke Life) which talks about the fraternity at the University of Manitoba.
