Custodial history

The family memorabilia was passed to various members of the family until eventually it was divided between two cousins, David C. Carpenter of Saskatoon and Nancy Linville Carpenter of Montreal. Their fathers, Paul Hamilton Carpenter and John Richmond Carpenter (respectively) were the sons of Henry Stanley Carpenter and Jessie Ross Cameron; Henry Stanley Carpenter was the son of Edward Richmond Carpenter and Jessie Leonora Smith. David Carpenter donated the documents in his possession to the University Archives in 1996; and Nancy Carpenter donated this material to the University Archives in 1999.
