- 1909-1999, Photocopied and scanned 2002
The fonds consists of textual materials and photos produced by 3 generations of the Daley family. Four ledgers from Patrick Daley's meat market give a record of his business for several months during 1924-25, 1935, and 1937-8. There is a 4-page account written by Harry Daley in his later years about his military service from 1928-46, papers regarding his discharge, and a copy of his 1909 birth certificate. Most of the family photos appear to have been taken during his married life from1934-1954.
Gerald Daley's papers consist of drafted and printed letters to the editor of the local newspaper, as well as two essays of a religious nature. There are copies of notes from his bible about the extended family and newspaper articles pertaining to family members. During the years 1954-59, when Gerald was a member, he collected articles and photos of the local Sea Cadets. Some 1998 copies of the weekly "Down Memory Lane" section of The Journal-Pioneer show the type of photos and articles selected by Gerald during the 4-month period in which he composed those pages of the paper. An extensive array of photocopied clippings he collected for that work have been loosely arranged by subject. Some children's artwork and 35 photographs were salvaged from the discarded files of the newspaper office.
Other items in this fonds include a 1957 "Emblem" - the Summerside High School magazine, the official program of the 1st annual Summerside Lobster Carnival in 1956, a 1989 PEI Highlanders nominal roll, several 1964 newspapers featuring the Royal Visit, and a 1916 special souvenir edition of the Summerside Journal. There are several items of correspondence and some material about the J. Watson MacNaught family that lived next door to Harry Daley and family.
