Dates of existence


Frances McColl was a Home Economics student at the University of Manitoba from 1934 to 1938. Following her graduation, she would spend 36 years as a home economics teacher in British Columbia and Manitoba. After her retirement, Ms. McColl was able to devote more time to researching and documenting her family history and she published two books on the topic. Ebenezer McColl, Friend to the Indians, Superintendent of Indian Affairs for Manitoba and Northwest Territories: A Biography, 1835-1902 detailed her grandfather's career. Vignettes of Early Winnipeg featured letters and sketches created by Ms. McColl's mother, Edith Durand McColl, between 1912 and 1926. The sketches and letters were excerpted from Edith's correspondence to her parents at home in Southampton, Pennsylvania.
