Notice biographique

Daniel Alexander Cameron was born in Ottawa on August 7, 1880 but moved to Winnipeg as a boy. He was well-known in Saskatchewan and across Canada for his association with the music field, and in particular for his vocal work. He began his music career as a voice teacher at Albert College in Belleville, Ontario. Before coming to Regina, Cameron studied with Herbert Witherspoon, Oscar Saenger (famed coach and interpretation expert), Dr. Ferey Lulek, Carl Odell and George Sweet, all of New York. He served in the First World War overseas with the Canadian Expeditionary Force, and returned to Ottawa to hold a position with the Federal government looking after veterans' affairs. During his time in Ottawa he was soloist at one of the leading churches. By 1923 Cameron had returned to the music field when he was appointed to the Regina Conservatory of Music to head the voice department. Shortly after his arrival in Regina, he began to write a music and drama column, book reviews, concert news, music festival reports and interviews for the Leader Post. After 1940 he wrote on a range of topics and became an editor. Besides his teaching at the Conservatory and his writing, Dan Cameron was involved in a great number of professional music associations in Regina. From the Regina Orchestral Society to the Knox-Metropolitan Church choir, Cameron sang and organized a great many singers in Regina. He died in November, 1963.

Historique de la conservation

Portée et contenu

Fonds consists of records relating to Dan A. Cameron's activities as a teacher of voice at the Regina Conservatory of Music, writer, adjudicator, and concert performer. It includes personal correspondence, invitations, financial information, and military records. Arranged in four series (Conservatory of Music, Personal, Photographs, and Programs), the records reveal the full extent of his vocal activities in Regina and in Canada. Of particular interest are files documenting Cameron's extensive affliations with numerous local music organizations, and a collection of programs for various musical performances at the University of Regina's Darke Hall, and other venues. Included in these programs is one for the Gracie Fields concert in 1940. The records also contain a series of personal photographs, many unidentified, depicting Cameron, social events, local scenes, and travel views of European locales. Among the military records, the Roster Book, 2nd Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Forces (c1918), provides significant genealogical information about members of the Battalion.
