Pitblado Family fonds

  • MSS 048
  • Fonds
  • 1836-1977

The collection includes personal papers from the three generations of Manitoba Pitblados: documents, correspondence, writings, scrapbooks. The most voluminous batch of correspondence consists of Edward's letters home from Europe during World War I and while holding his Rhodes Scholarship. There are letters from other family members, especially as arising from Isaac and Edward's interest in reconstructing the Pitblado genealogy. Materials of particular interest in the Charles Bruce segment relate to the Canadian Northwest in the 1880's, including the 1885 Riel Rebellion, and to the Presbyterian Church (notably St. Andrew's and Westminster, Winnipeg). The Isaac segment contains a number of drafts or notes for addresses, many to legal audiences. Both the Isaac and the Edward segments preserve source material for the history of Canadian sports.

R. A. Storch Fonds

  • CA UMASC PC 334
  • Fonds
  • [193-] to [195-]

Two of the films (one black & white, one colour) feature the visit of King George VI of England and Queen Elizabeth to Winnipeg during their Royal Tour of Canada in May 1939, mainly showing people preparing for the Queen and King to drive by in their car and the related festivities. School groups of children are shown, including some from what appear to be Somerset School and Cecil Rhodes School. There is a duplicate of the colour film. The other three films (two black & white, one colour) mainly feature student track and field competitions. The colour reel includes a ceremony on the steps of Cecil Rhodes School with boys in blue cadet caps, girls singing, and an unidentified military dignitary. The track meets appear to include students from Cecil Rhodes School, Daniel McIntyre School, and likely other schools. Two of the films show the former Osborne street stadium, while the other appears to be at either a school or community sports field.
Photographs document water levels of Winnipeg flood from April - May 1950; a small group of unlabelled photos depict a family of three, possibly of Storch, and scenes around a dam (possibly in Pinawa).
