Biographical history

Cameron, Elizabeth 1853-1933
Hall, Alice Cameron 1893-1971

Alice Cameron was born around 1893 to John and Elizabeth Cameron of Edmonton. In 1916, Alice Cameron married Erastus Kells (E. Kells) Hall in Edmonton. They had three children, a son Kells, and two daughters, W? and Louise.

E. Kells Hall was a civil engineer and worked for the CNR. Around 1940 the family left Alberta, and moved first to Ottawa and then later to Montreal.

E. Kells Hall died 25 Feb 1958 in Montreal. Alice Cameron Hall died 21 Oct 1971. They are buried in the Mount Royal Cemetery in Montreal.

Custodial history

Louise Hall is the daughter of Alice Cameron Hall and the granddaughter of Mrs. John (Elizabeth) Cameron. She was living in Ontario at the time of the donation. It is likely the records were passed down in the family and the donor sent the newspaper to the archives after the death of her mother.

Scope and content

The collection consists of copies of the Edmonton Bulletin newspaper, including the first issue Vol. 1, No. 1, December 6, 1880 (2 copies) and Vol. 1., No. 3, December 20,1880
