Frank and Winifred Fisher fonds

  • CA DMA CR-32
  • Fonds
  • ca. 1912-1930

The fonds consists of a diary kept by Frank Fisher. Part of the diary appears to be written at the time he was a bookkeeper at Deas Island in 1912; this section of the diary is written in pen. Other entries written in pencil chronicle the day to day activities of farm life. It is likely, therefore that this section was written after Mr. Fisher returned from the war and started farming Deas Island. The fonds also consists of a letter found in Mr. Fisher's diary, written to him by a relative or friend, Kathleen, living overseas.
