Biographical history

Anna Elizabeth Dunlap came to Grande Prairie in 1912 with her father, James Carrel Dunlap, over the Edson Trail. The party of five included Mr. & Mrs. Dunlap, their daughter and son-in-law Mr. & Mrs. John Mashburn, and Elizabeth. They had traveled all the way from New Mexico. When they reached Grande Prairie, Mr. Dunlap started the "The People's O.K. Store" on Third Avenue South (Richmond Avenue), transporting all the goods for the store over the Edson Trail. Elizabeth Dunlap lived in Grande Prairie as a teenager and young adult, and evidently was a successful tennis player. She married Mr. Kinch and left Grande Prairie c. 1920.

Custodial history

The records were preserved by Robert Cochlan from Clearwater, B.C., who was the executor of Mrs. Kinch’s estate. He gave them to Debby Summach, then living in Grande Prairie, and she deposited them with the Grande Prairie Museum in 1991. In 2000, they were transferred to the care of the Grande Prairie Regional Archives.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of photographs of Grande Prairie during the time Miss Dunlap lived there, a limited edition booklet of poems written by Nurse Baird and Miss Drynan on the occasion of a trip to Edmonton in 1914, Miss Dunlap’s calling card, and some news clippings of Elizabeth’s success as a tennis player in Grande Prairie. The book of poetry also includes some area photographs.
