História biográfica

Harold Percy Brown was born in England in 1886 and he immigrated to Canada in 1908. He married Evelina Mann in 1911 in Edmonton and they had two sons, Percy and Leslie.
Harold Brown was the director of visual instruction and studio director of CKUA Radio in the faculty at the Department of Extension at the University of Alberta. He was instrumental in the formation of the first community league in the city (the 142nd Street and District Community League) and the Federation of Community Leagues.
The 142nd Street and District Community League was formed in 1917 with George Hall as President and Harold P. Brown as Secretary.
The community league carried out a number of activities, including cultivating a vegetable garden to help with the war effort, raising funds for a school, piano, undertaking programs for children and families and providing amenities for returned veterans in the local hospital. The League continued its programs of sporting events, fairs, competitions and good works for many years.
In the 1930s the name was changed to the Jasper Place, Westgrove and District Community League. Harold Brown remained as secretary. The name was shortened to the Jasper Place Community League before the end of the 1930s. In 1951 the name changed again to reflect the renaming of the west end subdivision to Crestwood and Capital Hill Community League. The league opened their new hall in 1958. Harold Brown was still on the executive as Chair of the education committee. He created a scrapbook of community league news clippings and other material to document the early history of the community league. The name was again shortened to Crestwood before the end of the 1960s.
Harold Percy Brown died in Edmonton in 1965.

Âmbito e conteúdo

The fonds consists of photocopies of news clippings from the scrapbook created by Harold Brown. The news clippings relate to the Crestwood Community League and its predecessors, the 142nd Street and Jasper Place Community Leagues. There are also some early annual reports, newsletters, and correspondence of Harold P. Brown, the secretary of the league for many years and a member of the executive and president of the Federation of Community Leagues in the 1920s.
The photographs (1915-1924) cover events in the community, likely held by the community league (Maypole dancing, parades, children playing in parks, theatrical performances, parks), buildings (Alberta Legislature), roads and bridges, CKUA radio studio and portraits of Harold P. Brown and Cyril Geoffrey Wates.
