Name of creator
Thomas Alphonsus Walsh was born in Edmonton in 1921 to Frank and Mary Walsh. In 1945, at the age of 23yrs, Thomas moved to Anchorage, Alaska to work as a clerk for Northwest Airlines. By 1957 Thomas had returned to Edmonton, was married to Shirley and working as a car salesman. At the time of donation, he was working for Miller Motors.
Thomas A. Walsh died in 1986 and is buried at the Mount Pleasant Municipal Cemetery.
It is not known how Thomas Walsh acquired the records.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of a postcard photograph of a horse and wagon plowing team and a book ‘Incidents in the Life of John S. Sullivan and other Famous People’ by William C. Burns (921.BUR).
The book is the personal reminiscences of William Burns who was a prize fighter but in later years resided at the Selkirk Hotel and was often known to stand on the corner of Jasper Ave and 101 St., telling ‘interesting yarns’ about his prize fighting days. The publishing of the book was funded by donations of William Burns’ friends. It is possible Thomas Walsh contributed to the publishing of the book.
Immediate source of acquisition
This fonds was donated to the City of Edmonton Archives by Thomas A. Walsh in 1969.
The photograph was assigned item numbers with the prefix EA-60.
