James and Ljotun Young fonds

  • CA UMASC MSS 231
  • Fonds
  • ca. 1948-1963

The fonds consists of 25 spirit cards, which document seven spirit greetings. The cards were created using colour crayons on 4" x 6" card stock. The reverse of one card is dated July 4, 1962 and indicates that it was received at the Spiritualist Camp known as Camp Chesterfield in Indiana. Based upon comments within the text of the greetings, in which it is expressed that the recipient, Ljotun Young, would hopefully "come down here," but understanding that she was not able to "leave the cat," it is probable that the whole series of cards was received at Camp Chesterfield, Indiana, over a period of years (ca. 1958-1964).

Walter Meyer zu Erpen, President of the Survival Research Institute of Canada, confirms this theory and affirms the authentication of the cards by stating, "James and Ljotun Young are known to have travelled together to Camp Chesterfield during the 1950s, though it is doubtful that Ljotun would have gone to Camps Chesterfield after her husband's death. The spirit greetings reveal that on at least one occassion, Winnipeg Spiritualist Hannah Mary Macpherson (1888-1971) acted as intermediary in requesting a reading on behalf of Mrs. Ljotun Young. The daughter of Mrs. Macpherson confirmed that her mother visited Camp Chesterfield nearly every year. Mrs. Macpherson would have known the Youngs through one or more of Winnipeg's spiritual churches. Based upon the case given to preserve the cards, it is clear that they considered these greeting cards to be genuine evidence of spirit communications."

The process of creating spirit cards is thought to be that a spirit precipates the cloth onto the card without any physical, mechanical writing. The spirit greetings on some cards appear to have been drawn inspirationally through the hand of the medium. At times, these have been created at great speed and possibly in darkness.

Charles Ernest L'Ami fonds

  • CA UMASC MSS 25
  • Fonds
  • 1930-1980

The fonds consists of correspondence dealing with Charles L'Ami's literary work, career development and political views, literary manuscripts, short stories, dramas and poems, articles, radio scripts, letters to editors, and various resource materials such as reviews, scrapbooks and news clippings.

The Charles Ernest L'Ami collection consists of the following: correspondence dealing mainly with his literary work, career development, and personal opinions and political views; literary manuscripts to his published and unpublished novels, short stories, dramas, and poems; articles; radio scripts; letters to editors; and various resource materials such as reviews, scrapbooks, news clippings, etc.

The collection is fairly complete and representative of L'Ami the writer. Several strictly personal letters were withdrawn from the collection while being processed and returned to the surviving son, Charles A. L'Ami. Nothing was returned or destroyed that reflected L'Ami's philosophy, interpretations, or literary endeavors.

As a local writer of only modest fame, L'Ami never established a national reputation. He was, at heart, a journalist and freelance writer, an interesting blend of the old world and the Canadian prairie with pronounced conservative and traditional leanings and viewpoints. His one major success, The Green Madonna, is not well-known today and little remembered. It may well be that the collection of unpublished works and translations possess future promise for students of Canadian literature.

L'Ami, C. E. (Charles Ernest)
