Portée et contenu

The collection consists of a relatively small selection of documents (biographical sketches, birth certificates, school transcripts, memorabilia, correspondence, certificates of recognition, newspaper clippings, concert and cultural event programs) and a very large number of photographs, slides, photo negatives and audio-visual materials. All of the materials document, in great detail, the private lives of Fred and Kay and their children and grandchildren, as well as Fred’s and Kay’s involvement in various community organizations, in particular Fred’s involvement with the University of Manitoba’s Faculty of Engineering Class of ’46 Reunions, and Kay’s participation in Winnipeg’s O. Koshetz Choir. The photographs record Fred’s and Kay’s lives from childhood and adolescence, in the 1920s and 1930s, to old age during the 2000s and document virtually all of their private and community activities.
