The fonds consists of a copy of a memoir by Skapti Arason, one of the first Icelandic settlers to Manitoba. The seven-page memoir tells of Skapti's immigration to Canada, his subsequent travels to Manitoba, the settling of the Icelandic community on the western shore of Lake Winnipeg and the founding of the town of Glenboro. It is believed that this memoir has been translated, as the Icelandic version of the same memoir can be found in the Icelandic Department of the University of Manitoba. It is not known who translated the memoir.
