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.
