Aitken Family fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1925 - 1947

The fonds consists of materials largely related to the life and death of Robert M. Aitken.

Besides material created by Robert in the course of his duties, records created by Marjory Aitken, his mother, are present throughout the fonds, most notably in letters received from correspondents regarding her son’s death. The photographs consist of images taken and collected by Marjory throughout Robert’s life, including of his childhood, military service, and eventual gravesite.

Mary Capling Hyde fonds

  • CA EDM MS-253
  • Fonds
  • 1900 - 1945

The fonds consists of 64 daybooks (diaries) created by Mary Capling Hyde from June 1900 to March 1945. The entries tell the daily activities of the family members, friends and events in the neighbourhood, including the move from Ontario to Edmonton. Occasionally other family members, likely her children, write an entry (noted by the different handwriting).

Upon receiving the news of her husband’s death, Mary went to the daily entry for 26 Sep 1916, crossed out her previous entry of “Matt somewhere in France” and replaced it with “Matt no more”. Mary wrote “Matt no more” in every entry for the rest of her life.
At a later point, Mary re-read some of her diaries and added extra notes on the overall feelings of the family at the time. These notes are mostly in the earlier diaries and are usually written on the side of the original entry. Some diaries also have a brief synopsis or note at the beginning of the daybook.

As Mary was very ill and in hospital the last week of her life, other members of the family wrote the diary entries (noted by the different handwriting). The last entry, following Mary’s death, is a tribute to Mary and her diary, likely written by her daughter Alice.
The photograph is a group portrait of the Hyde family, Matthew, Mary, Alice, David and Robbie, taken shortly before Matthew Hyde went off to war.
