  • CA EDM MS-589
  • Archief
  • 1993-2018

The fonds consists of material created through Merrett’s work in compiling local histories of Edmonton. These include research and writings on the Edmonton City Market, the horticultural scene in Edmonton and the Cross Cancer Institute.

The majority of the records deal with research for a book on the Edmonton City Market (A History of the Edmonton City Market, 1900-200: Urban Values and Urban Culture) and political activism relating to a two-year fight to retain a City Market in the downtown. Research undertaken on Edmonton’s gardening history and publications based upon that research is also present. These records include transcripts of interviews conducted by Merrett with vendors and others associated with the Edmonton City Market, and a record of a two-year political process during which the Edmonton City Market building on 97th Street was closed and replaced by an outdoor market on 104th Street. The interviews, most of which are rendered in the voices of the interviewees, cover a variety of subjects relating to life in Edmonton from the 1930s through the 1960s and 1970s. The record of the 2002-2004 period in the City Market’s history includes correspondence, newspaper clippings, a photocopy of a petition presented to City Council, and meeting minutes. There are also photographs of some of the interviewees.

The records of the horticultural scene in Edmonton include Merrett's research on Edmonton's gardening history and articles written by Merrett for the Edmonton Horticultural Society's (EHS) newsletter, The Gardener's Gate. There is also a copy of Merrett's published work on gardening in Edmonton - Why We Grow Here: Essays on Edmonton's Gardening History.

The fonds also includes two publications from Merrett’s work with the Cross Cancer Institute. These items represent the commissioning of Merrett to write a history of the medical centre, as well as a history of the volunteer program there over the first 50 years of its existence.

Cavers, Charters Family fonds

  • CA EDM MS-138
  • Archief
  • 1892 - 1954

The fonds consists of sheet music, and a family album of postcards and greeting cards.

The majority of sheet music belonged to Christina Charters, most of which is annotated, C.J. Cavers, while others are annotated C.J. Charters, or Mrs. E. Charters. Some of the earlier pieces of sheet music are annotated M.B. Cavers, likely Christina's sister Mary Beatrice Cavers. A few pieces of music have other annotations, such as U.Y or Mrs. Young - it is not known who this is, or how related to Christina Cavers Charters.

The album of postcards and greeting cards covers multi-generations of the Cavers - Charters family. The early postcards are predominantly addressed to Everett Charters as a child ('Master Everett') or his parents, Maggie and Charles Charters. The cards are mostly from Charters or Everett relatives back in New Brunswick (Aunt Nell, Aunt Sadie, Grandma, Grandpa, Mother) and presumably sent after the family moved to Saskatchewan. Some postcards have notes or writings from the sender, others are blank. Other cards are addressed to Chrissie Cavers, before her marriage to Everett Charters.

Cards in the middle to later part of the album are addressed to Everett or Chrissie Charters, and later to their children, Kenneth or Marion. The cards are mostly from friends or relatives, and are predominantly greeting cards with some birth or memorial announcements.

It is not known if the creator of the album was a Charters family member, and Christina inherited the album upon her marriage to Everett, and continued it, or if Christina herself created the album and included cards that belonged to her or her husband prior to their marriage, as well as cards received by them once married.
