  • 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.

R. A. Storch Fonds

  • CA UMASC PC 334
  • Fonds
  • [193-] to [195-]

Two of the films (one black & white, one colour) feature the visit of King George VI of England and Queen Elizabeth to Winnipeg during their Royal Tour of Canada in May 1939, mainly showing people preparing for the Queen and King to drive by in their car and the related festivities. School groups of children are shown, including some from what appear to be Somerset School and Cecil Rhodes School. There is a duplicate of the colour film. The other three films (two black & white, one colour) mainly feature student track and field competitions. The colour reel includes a ceremony on the steps of Cecil Rhodes School with boys in blue cadet caps, girls singing, and an unidentified military dignitary. The track meets appear to include students from Cecil Rhodes School, Daniel McIntyre School, and likely other schools. Two of the films show the former Osborne street stadium, while the other appears to be at either a school or community sports field.
Photographs document water levels of Winnipeg flood from April - May 1950; a small group of unlabelled photos depict a family of three, possibly of Storch, and scenes around a dam (possibly in Pinawa).
