Biographical history

William Russell (Boots) Kent lived in Lytton for most of his life. At some time, he must have worked in a mine because there are several mining pictures in the album. He married Elsie Preus in the mid-1950s. They are both now buried in the Lytton Highway Cemetery.

Custodial history

When Boots died, Elsie gave his album to Larry Williams, who in turn donated it to the Lytton Museum and Archives.

Scope and content

Fonds consists of one album of photographs taken by Boots Kent. Includes many photos of a mining operation, family pictures, Car wreck at Thompson slide, and Boots and Elsie at Anderson Creek.
