Name of creator
Keith H. Barker was born ca. 1920. He served in the Second World War, and returned to Canada in 1945. He got married in 1945. He and his wife resided in the Oakville, Ontario area working for his father, grandfather, and uncle. In 1948, Barker purchased a 320 acre farm with the help of neighbours Mr. And Mrs. Fred Chester, and borrowed machinery from relatives. By 1960 he was able to purchase an additional 160 acres. Keith and Sadie raised a family of five children: Terry, Arlene, Patricia, Colleen, and Warren. In 1985, Warren entered into partnership with his father and he bought the family farm in 1990. The Barkers now reside in the town of Carman, Manitoba.
The fonds was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by Keith Barker in 1995.
