C.H. Little Letter Project

Throughout most of his life, C.H. Little (1872-1958) wrote a letter to his mother almost every week. In them he outlined his daily life in Waterloo, the early history of Wilfrid Laurier University (then Waterloo Lutheran Seminary), and even details about the weather. He wrote during trying times: he chronicled conflict during the First World War and the hardships of the Depression.

For the first time these letters are now in the process of becoming available – and searchable – through the Laurier Archives C.H. Little digitization project. In partnership with the Laurier Archives, students in DH 300 are working to contribute to this important project that provides a window into daily life – and the history of the university – almost a century ago.
