Name of creator
Ella Cora Hind, an agricultural writer and editor for the Manitoba Free Press, was known as an authority on agriculture, livestock, and wheat yields. Her opinion influenced prices on the Winnipeg Grain Exchange and western grain crops for several years. She was one of the first female writers and editors of the Manitoba Free Press. She was also a champion of women's suffrage and a strong supporter of the Women's Christian Temperance Union and the Political Equality League.
The fonds was donated by the Winnipeg Free Press to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections in 1978.
Scope and content
The fonds contains correspondence, largely letters of congratulations on her 1935 honourary doctorate, a diary of her 1928 European tour, lectures, her Winnipeg Free Press columns dating from 1935 to 1942, and news clippings about her career.
