Biographical history

Lowell Hancock was a resident of Summerside, Prince Edward Island. He had an avid interest in fox farming.

Custodial history

Scope and content

This collection consists of 305 photographs relating to the fax farming industry on Prince Edward Island. Begun in the late nineteenth century by Charles Dalton and Robert Oulton, the fox farming industry grew steadily on the Island and spread to the other provinces, the United States, Europe and the world. The industry on P.E.I. reached its peak in the two decades between 1910 and 1930 and remained steady enough to see many farmers through the depression of the thirties. By the end of the decade however, a downward trend had become evident and the end of the Second World War spelled the beginning to the end of fox farming although there was a brief upsurge in the late sixties and seventies. The majority of images are of foxes (both live and pelts). Also captured are fox farms, fox shows and some individuals related to the business.
