Name of creator
([ca. 1885-after 1950])
Frederick O. Pringle, [ca. 1885-after 1950], came from Iowa, USA to Alberta in 1909, and homesteaded 2 km east of Veteran. In 1912 he married Ida Maria Bower, 1882-1950, who was originally from Reslessy, Ontario. They had three children, Isobel, Ray and George. Besides running the farm, Fred opened the first barbershop in Veteran in 1913. The Pringles moved into Veteran ca. 1947.
Scope and content
The fonds consists of diaries and photographs related to his homesteading experience. The diaries describe his trip to Canada, work as a farm labourer for others, his social life (primarily dances on Saturday nights), work on his homestead, and his growing business as a barber, fixing up his house, marriage to Ida Bower, and birth of his daughter.
Immediate source of acquisition
Gift of Hugh Bower, 1969.
