Walter Scott Robertson fonds

  • CA EDM MS-44
  • Arquivo
  • 1899 - 1905

The fonds consists of invoices and receipts from various businesses in account with W.S. Robertson for Robertson Hall.

Robertson Hall, sometimes called Edmonton Opera House, was located on the south side of east Jasper Ave, at approximately 9671 Jasper Avenue, across from the Jasper House Hotel and Mathers’ Photograph Studio. The building was a two-storey frame structure, 45 feet x 65 feet. It had a large cellar, two shops on the main floor with the large hall on the second floor. The hall was entered via a five foot wide stairwell, seated 300 to 350 people, and featured an 18 foot stage with dressing rooms on either side.

Robertson’s Hall was used for a variety of events including town meetings and receptions, dances, musical and dramatic performances, concerts, political debates, charitable events, and variety shows. Robertson himself managed the hall for many years, until Neville White was hired as manager in 1899.

Robertson’s Sheriff office was located in Robertson Hall for many years. Later, Robertson’s son Frederick M. Robertson had a Provisions, Flour and Feed shop in the second office.

Robertson Hall is considered as Edmonton’s first theatre or venue and was in regular use until it burned down on May 23, 1906.

McDougall & Secord Limited fonds

  • CA EDM MS-594
  • Arquivo
  • 1890-1952

This fonds consists of correspondence, ledgers and account books, and land scrip registers from the firm of McDougall & Secord reflecting their business operations as fur traders, general merchants, and land speculators.

Some of the records demonstrate the potential impact of the Metis scrip system created by the Canadian government. The government issued scrip documents to the Metis people living in the West ostensibly to assist with their transition to an agrarian lifestyle but really to effect an exchange for their Indigenous land rights. The scrip was redeemable for either land or money. However, the system was complex, possibly misunderstood or underappreciated by the Metis who did not wish to transition away from their traditional lifestyle, and the government’s tolerance of entrepreneurs acquiring the scrip (essentially rights to land ownership) in turn from the Metis is in itself controversial as potentially an extension of the Government's policy to extinguish Indigenous title to the land.

It is notable that the degree to which land sale documentation was completed is noticeably different depending if the other party in the sale was Indigenous or non-Indigenous.
