Project Description:

The edition to be transcribed for this group includes a collection of letters written by C.H. Little to his mother from January to April 1932. During this time period, there were 6 letters written by C.H. Little: January 17, February 28, April 24, May 1, May 15, and June 5, 1932. In these letters, Little discusses subjects like the weather, Seagram Distillery, Bridgeport, his family, the Synod, and many other issues of the time. Please explore our content pages by clicking the links below to learn more about some of the things that he has discussed in our set of letters.

Our edition aims to…

  1. Create digitally accessible files that are searchable and provide context for others.
  2. Develop a sense of group responsibility and teamwork skills, by working together to create and publish a collaborative project. 
  3. Transcribe these letters in hopes of educating people in the subjects surrounding the letters and the history of Laurier, the community, and its’ history.
