Biographical history

Lawrence Francis (Larry) Easton was born on the family farm near Wawota, Saskatchewan, on August 24, 1938, to Francis Russell and Leah Isabel (Griffin) Easton. He received his early education at Wawota, graduating from Wawota High School in 1958. He later attended the School of Agriculture, University of Saskatchewan (1958-1960) and completed the Electronics Engineering Technologist course at Saskatchewan Technical Institute, Moose Jaw, in 1964. He was employed as an engineering manager with SaskTel in Regina until his retirement in 1997.

Dorothy May Bird was born at Wawota on May 3, 1941, to Francis Carlton and Mable Irene (Myers) Bird. She received her early education in Wawota and later attended Success Business College in Regina. She was employed by SaskTel, the Salvation Army, the federal government, and the provincial Department of Labour and Employment, Apprenticeship and Trade Certification. Dorothy Bird married Larry Easton on April 22, 1961 in Wawota. Together, they have two children: Mark and Michelle.

Since the 1970s, Larry Easton has been an active photographer. He has been a member of the Regina Photo Club for thirty years and in that time has held various positions on its executive. He is the only member of the Club to receive its Prestige Award for photographic achievement. Easton is also a member of the Prairie Region of Photographic Arts, and is a director for the prairies on the Canadian Association for Photographic Art. He has received numerous competition awards and recognitions for his photographic works.

Scope and content

This fonds consists of records created, accumulated and used by Larry and Dorothy Easton of Regina, Saskatchewan, in the creation of digital photographic images of architecture, landscapes, plants and animals throughout Saskatchewan and some parts of Alberta. Associated documents and multimedia presentations related to the photographic work are also included. The images were created for possible use in published works and other projects, in related presentations, and to document other subjects of interest. Most of the images were created between 2002 and 2017, but some are also scanned copies of photographic prints and slides created in the 1970s through 1990s.

Three series have been applied to the records in this fonds: Legacy of Stone: Saskatchewan's Stone Buildings series; Legacy of Worship: Sacred Places in Rural Saskatchewan series; and Other Works series.
