Custodial history

Berny Wiens donated the records in this series to the Regina office, Saskatchewan Archives in one accession in 1996: R96-440 (August 21, 1996). Records created by Darrel Cunningham and Eldon Lautermilch were identified in this series at the time of arrangement.

Scope and content

This series consists of records created, accumulated and used by Darrel Cunningham from 1991 to 1992 as Minister of Parks and Renewable Resources and Minister of Natural Resources. Also included are records created by Eldon Lautermilch from 1992 to 1993 as Minister of Natural Resources.

Darrel Cunningham was in charge of the Department of Parks and Renewable Resources through its transformation into the Department of Natural Resources in June 1992 and on until September 1992 when he was succeeded by Eldon Lautermilch. Lautermilch served in that portfolio until the Department of Environment and Resource Management was formed in March 1993, when Berny Wiens assumed the portfolio and appears to have accumulated the records.

The types of records included are mainly memoranda, correspondence, briefing notes, research notes, news releases, publications, legislation, photographs, maps, a sound recording and a moving image.
