Custodial history

This collection was donated to the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by Emil and Lynette Hain in 2010. Lynette Hain is Rev. Thomas Watson’s granddaughter.

Scope and content

The Emil and Lynette Hain fonds consists of textual records, such as letters, handwritten lecture notes, a program advertising the Rev. Riddette’s slide show, and a typewritten communication service in the Native language of the Transvaal region. The fonds also contains negatives, and a collection of glass lantern slides and created by Rev. Thomas Watson which document the missionary work being undertaken in the Transvaal region of South Africa prior to the onset of the Boer War. Rev. Watson created the glass lantern slides from his original negatives and used them as the basis of his lecture tour titled "The Boers: Their Country, their Ways, their Neighbours, and their War." It is likely that Rev. Watson purchased additional glass lantern slides from Rev. J.H. Riddette’s slide show to supplement his own collection. Emil Hain donated two Brooke High School yearbooks from 1953 and 1954 (Rivers, Manitoba). The collection also contains one film reel and a program documenting the 1958 installation banquet for the Zeta Iota chapter of the Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity at the University of Manitoba, as well as a 1958 copy of the Fraternity magazine (Teke Life) which talks about the fraternity at the University of Manitoba.
