Biographical history

James Russell McMillan (born in Listowel, Ontario) and Ingeborg Magnelda Paulson were married in 1910 in Erikson, Manitoba. They moved to Clanwilliam, Manitoba soon after. James and Ingeborg had two children, Norman Russell (b.1913, d.1971) and Melburn Harry (b.1915, d.1921). In 1936, Norman married Lillian Graham (b.1912, d.1989) of Minnedosa. Lillian's parents, Herb and Edith had moved from Mentmore to Minnedosa to operate the mill in 1934. Norman and Lillian had two children, Andrina and Karen.

Custodial history

These photographs were donated to the Museum by Andrina Draper and Karen Kustra following their mother Lillian (Graham) McMillan's death in 1989.

Scope and content

The donors state that the subjects of these photographs are not known to them, however, they hoped that the photographs would have value as reference materials. The collection consists of two Cabinet Card photographs, ca.1890. One features a couple identified in a caption verso as Harrison's oldest daughter and son-in-law. The other of a young woman is identified as Harrison's daughter-in-law. Also in this collection are two postcard portraits, ca.1930, one of two women and the other of two men in winter coats. There are also four snapshots, ca.1925 - 1930. One is of a couple, one of a man holding a dog and one is of a child. The only identified subject of these snapshots is of a man holding an infant identified as Rev. Mathews at an Indian Reserve South of Erikson.
