Biographical history

Custodial history

The majority of the records consists of the records of the Walin Studio of Fine Portrait Photography and was given the accession number 98.37. When the Walin Studio of Fine Portrait Photography ceased operations in 1956, Mr. Walin sold the studio and images to Bert Jasperse of Wetaskiwin who opened and operated Jasperse Studios in the same location. In the early 1990s, Bert Jasperse, upon his retirement and the closing of Jasperse Studios, sold the Walin images and records to the Samson Cree Nation in Hobbema, Alberta, who were interested in the collection for Walin's portraits of early twentieth century native life. The Samson Cree Nation separated images pertaining to native life and sold the remainder of the collection to the City of Wetaskiwin Archives in 1998. Accession 88.7 was donated to the City of Wetaskiwin Archives by Leone Provost, Carl Walin's daughter in 1988.
