Name of creator
Vaughan David Watt was born in Birtle, Manitoba in 1892 the only son of David and Mary Jane (Jenny) Watt. David Watt farmed, worked as a grain buyer and was a Manager for the U.G.G. for twenty-two years. Jenny was elected the first secretary of the Federated Women's Institute in 1910 and went on to become the National President of the organization from 1923-1925. The couple's three children Vaughan, Vera and Nell all attended the Oxford School. Vaughan helped his father on the farm and worked in the local Union Bank. He played baseball and was part of the Birtle Band. He enlisted in 1916 at Saskatoon as part of the 28th Battalion Canadian Infantry (Saskatchewan Regiment). He was promoted to Lance-Corporal in May 1918. He was killed in France on August 9th 1918 and is buried in Rosieres Communal Cemetery Extension. One of his final letters home talks of returning to the farm to help his father.
The papers were donated by Vaughan Watt's niece Gwen Snow Zingle in the fall of 2003.
