  • Item
  • 1996

Item is a framed print from the Douglas R. Greer Collection entitled: "Hatching Caddis," 1996.

Caddisflies represent an astonishing 50 per cent of the Grand River's invertebrates, and unlike Ontario's Mayflies - which live for only a day - the Caddisfly's productive life-cycle can last for a month or more."

  • Fonds
  • [ca. 1970]

This history of St. Cuthbert's Parish in St. Theresa's, Prince Edward Island traces the development of the parish from a mission church to 1970. The history includes a list of resident priests, a list of priests and sisters from St. Cuthbert's Parish and a list of the first Catholic settlers if the Mission of St. Cuthbert.

In the 1840s, following an influx of Irish Catholic immigrants to the Fort Augustus, Prince Edward Island, area, a mission church was established on the Baldwin's Road. This church, which had been dedicated to St. Cuthbert, served the mission for nearly thirty years when it was decided that a larger church was required. This second church stood from 1875 until 1879 when it was destroyed by a windstorm. Construction immediately started on a new church which was completed and dedicated to St. Theresa in 1886. In 1912 the parish hired architect James Harris to design a a larger church. Upon its completion in 1919 the new church was returned to the patronage of St. Cuthbert.

  • ON00154 MPH15.1.9
  • Item
  • 1996

Item is a framed print from the Douglas R. Greer Collection entitled: "Light & Dark Cahill, a brakeman on the Erie & Lackawanna Railroad, New York. Dry flies are tied with waterproof rooster neck-hackles, which enable them to float. The sinking wet flies are tied to emulate the underwater stage of an insect's life. A popular legend involving Daniel Cahill established this young sportsman as a conservative pioneer. The related occasion was a serious derailment of Daniel's train, and he re-entered the capsized car to retrieve a number of rainbow trout destined for a hatchery, and released them in a nearby creek."
