Name of creator
Margaret Arnett MacLeod was born in 1877 in London, Ontario, and later moved to Manitoba with her family. Her father, Lewis Arnett, came to the Red River region with the Ontario volunteers in the Wolseley Expedition of 1870. She was educated in Brandon and Winnipeg and taught in Stonewall, Manitoba, before marrying Dr. A.N. MacLeod. In 1935, she wrote The Frozen Priest of Pembina and, in 1937, wrote Bells of Red River. In 1947, she compiled her most famous work, The Letters of Letitia Hargrave. She also wrote Red River Festive Season (1962) and Grantown, the story of Cuthbert Grant, which she compiled in collaboration with Dr. W.L. Morton in 1963.
The custodial history of the fonds is unknown.
Scope and content
fonds consists of voluminous research notes produced by the author for her publication Letters of Letitia Hargrave. They provide biographical data on Letitia Hargrave, her husband James Hargrave, several other senior and junior employees of the Hudson's Bay Company between 1837 and 1865, and the Hargrave family up to 1947. Research material about the Red River Settlement and some original letters of the era are also included. Nineteen photographs comprise the photograph collection.
