A.E. McKenzie Company fonds

  • CA MCK RG3McS
  • Fonds
  • 1887-1996, predominant 1910-1974

The fonds consists of textual records, photographs and artifacts from A.E. McKenzie Seed Co. Ltd. The textual records include minutes, documents, financial records, administrative records, by-laws, legal records, catalogues, sales literature, seed packets, newspaper clippings, appraisals, publications, scrapbooks and miscellaneous sections. In addition, some of the records within the fonds relate to the operations of McKenzie subsidiaries -- Brett-Young Seeds, Steele-Briggs Seeds, Pike & Co. and McFayden Seeds -- and various properties owned by McKenzie Seeds. There are approximately 500 photographs that depict the operations and employees of McKenzie Seeds and the seed industry in general. The artifacts include blueprints, newspaper clippings, copper printing plates, seed bags and plaques. As well, an artificially created series of records dealing with Brandon College Inc., the McKenzie Foundation, the Brandon Allied Arts Council and the Brandon Board of Trade has been created within the fonds but identified as records outside the provenance of the McKenzie Seed Co. Of particular interest within the textual records are the transcripts of various features of the company's history as dictated, researched and remembered by its second President/General Manager, J. Lasby Lowes. The fonds also contains an almost complete catalogue collection with high production values. Outside of the seed industry, the records dealing with both Brandon College Inc. and the McKenzie Foundation are significant pieces of the history of Brandon College/University and the City of Brandon. Within the photograph collection, the pictures of the McKenzie Strike of 1944 are worth mentioning; aside from these photographs there is no record within the fonds that mentions the event. The photographs depicting the operations and workers of McKenzie Seeds, both in the plant and in the field are also noteworthy, as are the product production photos, as they provide a visual history of agriculture and the seed industry in Western Canada.

Georges-Antoine Belcourt

  • CA ASHSB 0324
  • Fonds
  • [1834 à 1874] originaux et [195-] copies

Le fonds comprend des copies de lettres de Georges-Antoine Belcourt et le manuscrit de son dictionnaire de la langue des Sauteux (Ojibwa ou Anishinabe) de près de milles pages. Le dictionnaire comprend une préface, des conventions alphabétiques et de prononciation, une liste d'abréviations suivies des entrées pour chaque mot. Le dictionnaire ne contient que la partie français-sauteux. Pour cette raison, Belcourt donne tous les détails aux mots sauteux qui auraient servi dans la partie sauteux-français. Dans sa préface, Belcourt expliquait comment il importait de donner pour les mots sauteux, le mot radical, la racine, la particule compositive et l'étymologie complète des mots avec des exemples à l'appui. Ceci explique le détail compris dans chacune des entrées. Ce dictionnaire est unique en son genre. Les lettres sont des copies de lettres conservées aux archives de l'archevêché de Montréal, étant surtout des lettres de Belcourt à Mgr Ignace Bourget et des copies de lettres conservées aux archives de l'archevêché de Québec, étant surtout des lettres de Belcourt à Charles-Félix Cazeau ou à Mgr Joseph Signay. Les copies de lettres sont soit des photocopies, des transcriptions ou des copies dactylographiées à partir des transcriptions. Elles documentent l'activité missionnaire de Belcourt et donnent de nombreux renseignements sur la vie et la culture des Sauteux (Ojibwa ou Anishinabe), des Métis et des habitants de la Rivière-Rouge.
