Name of creator
William Hamill Dunlop worked for the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) in Manitoba. He worked on lines in Winnipeg, Carman, Elm Creek, and Portage la Prairie. In 1948 he was working at home and therefore had presumably retired from the CPR.
The fonds was donated to University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections by Bob Lincoln, Head, Acquisitions Department, University of Manitoba Libraries, in 1979.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of twelve pocket diaries for the years 1922, 1927, 1932-1934, 1936-1940, and 1947-1948. The diaries contain notes about work completed on the railway. A 1935 Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees seniority list for CPR's Portage and Brandon divisions, receipts and a photograph of two women are also included in the fonds.
