Bay Tree Community Club fonds

  • GPR 0533
  • Fonds
  • 1986-1998

The fonds consists of records relating to the Bay Tree Community Club. They are divided into four series: minutes, financial records, correspondence and quilting, which the ladies used as a fundraiser. The correspondence includes information of the closing of the Silver Valley Campsite.
The records were in no particular order when they arrived, but the minutes were grouped together in duotangs labeled with the year. It should be noted that there are balance sheets in the duotangs with the minutes, and original order has been maintained. Taped to the inside cover of one of the duotangs was a photo marked 1991. This was removed and added to the other photos of quilts.

Beaverlodge & District Historical Association fonds

  • GPR 0592

  • 1988

The fonds consists of the proofs for "People of the Pass" written by Madelon Truax and Beth Sheehan in 1988. There are two sets of proofs. One is on 11 x 17 sheets of paper, one section per chapter, but with no photographs or page divisions. This set appears to have been used for proof-reading and corrections. The second set of proofs are 20 x 24 in. sheets of paper folded in 8ths and printed both sides to make 16 pages. There are 19 sections of 16 pages each, with photographs included throughout, to make up the 144 pages in the book. The proofs are accompanied by some loose sheets, including a list of the 274 photographs used in the book, coded to indicate who they came from, and designs for the front and back covers and introductory pages. There are also four photographs: a postcard of Kinuseo Falls by R.E. Leake used for the front of the book; Madelon & Garnet Truax in 1986; Everett, Beth, Kells and Moira Sheehan in 1987; and Beth with "the oven" at a winter camp at Two Lakes in 1986.

"People of the Pass" is the story of the people who dreamed of, engineered, and laboured on the Monkman Pass Highway through the Rocky Mountains southwest of Beaverlodge. This road was built with volunteer labour during the depression and, although it was never improved to become an all-weather road, it is a monument to industry and courage. The book was published by the Beaverlodge Historical Society and printed by Menzies Printers.
