Biographical history

Delbert Owens was born in Ontario and came to Manitoba about 1900. He farmed in the Portage la Prairie area for a number of years, living in Highbluff, Jackson, Portage Creek, and Flea Island at various times. He died in 1965.

Custodial history

The fonds was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by Delbert Owens's son, J.M. Owens, in November 1995. J.M. Owens believes the ledger details the activities of the elevator in Highbluff, Manitoba.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of a large agricultural account ledger of a terminal grain elevator near Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. The ledger includes accounts of warehouses in Ogilvie, Minnedosa, Burnside, Binscarth, Austin, Gladstone, and McDonald, Manitoba. The ledger also includes accounts with many Winnipeg grain families such as Richardson, Sutherland, Armstrong, Rathburn, Kirkwood, Drysdale, Ashdown, and others.
