Scope and content

The fonds consists of six lined school scribblers containing Anita's itemized expenses for each month from December 1958 to January 1964. They include such expenses as rent, clothing, charities, and food. Each entry is itemized, e.g. tomatoes, .30; 2 yds Organdie, 1.58; Sunday collection, 2.00; 1 bottle "222" tablets, 1.25; present for Mr. McBryan, 1.66; etc. At the back of each scribbler is a list of the cheques Anita received for working, first from the the Alberta 5 to $1.00 Store, then the Northern Alberta Dairy Pool.
