Custodial history

Raised from the age of 12 on the ranch of Elsie (Hinde) Ingram (a cousin of his mother, Marjorie (Wake) Horn), David Horn purchased the Valley Springs Ranch from Jim Olynik and Wes and Elsie Ingram in the mid-eighties. The materials here include papers left behind on the ranch by Wes and Elsie upon their move to Borden, as well as materials left behind by Mary Needler Hinde when she passed away in 1999. David also inherited the Horn family papers which are included in this fonds. All of these materials were donated to the University Archives and Special Collections by David Horn in 2016.

Scope and content

This fonds consists of records of the Joseph Hinde and Henry Wake families, members of an English Quaker community in Birmingham who immigrated to Canada in 1912. The records reflect their daily lives and the operation of the Hinde family's Valley Springs Ranch near Borden, Saskatchewan. Materials relating to the Horn family farm at Spring Valley Saskatchewan during the Depression comprise the second series of records in this fonds. The types of records included are diaries, correspondence, photographs, financial records, publications, artifacts and clippings.
