    Biographical history

    H.G. Sherriff and W. Phillip purchased a contract to clear land for E. Stuart Wood in Salmon Arm. During Sherriff's contracted time in Salmon Arm, he kept a meticulous diary that has been transcribed. The author kept track of his work fulfilling the contract by recording Wood's initials in the margins each time he worked for the landowner. Entries in J.D. McGuire's diaries confirm the dates and other work completed by Sherriff in the community.
