Scope and content
The fonds consists of materials created by Ken Sutton of Calling Lake, Alberta between 1968 and 1994. The fonds consists of photocopied pages of Mr. Sutton's diary concerning a 1968 forest fire, and personal reminiscences of events that occurred during his work life. There is also a photograph of a McCormick-Deering threshing machine taken on Ken's father's farm west of Alcomdale in the 1920s. Other photographs were taken at Calling Lake and include Treaty Day 1964, the first Sutton home, the Mennonite Church, the Post Office, Moose Horn Market, and the aftermath of the 1984 tornado in the Big Coulee area. Doris Sutton took a photograph of the 1966-68 archeological dig at Calling Lake which was headed by Dr. Gruhn. She also made postcards of some of her photographs, and molded animals from Athabasca clay.
