  • Fonds
  • 1847 - 1998

The collection was created by Margaret Pugh who organized and preserved the family's history. The fonds consists of materials from four families linked to the Pugh Family: Broderick, Wilson, Stewart and Pawling. The fonds includes a large amount of correspondance and other textual material dating back to the mid 19th century up to 1998. A large quantity of Postcards from the late 1800s to the post-war period make up the niche portion of the collection. Margaret's father, Frederick Pugh, worked in the Research Bureau of the T.E. Eaton Company through the early 1900s until 1938, included in the collection is correspondance between him and executives of the company. Also contained in the collection are textual records of Margaret's career at Deer Lodge Hospital. These records provide some insight into the administrative activities of the dietary department at the veteran's institution. In addition, Margaret's collection of cookbooks and recipes provide a comprehensive insight into gendered domestic consumption and advertising in the post-war period. Overall, the records provide a vivid illustration of the activities of a family clan that lived in Southern Ontario during the 19th century and Winnipeg during and after the Edwardian period.
