Biographical history

Martha Gudlaugson arrived in the south Peace in 1911 with her parents Magnus and Olina Gudlaugson, who came from Manitoba. They homesteaded in the Clairmont area, and the children attended Wellington School, which began as a school on skids in their farmyard. Martha trained as a teacher at Camrose Normal School and came back to the Peace Country to teach at the following Schools: Wapiti, Wembley, Bezanson, Currie, Clairmont, Homestead, Kleskun Lake, East Smoky, and Morning View. After many years of teaching in the Peace, she moved with her husband, J.W. Callister, to Vancouver Island, where she continued teaching until she had taught for 40 years.

Custodial history

The records were deposited in South Peace Regional Archives in 2008 by Derril Gudlaugson, nephew to Martha Gudlaugson Callister.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of copies of 35 photographs which Martha took during her teaching career. The subjects are her time at Camrose Normal School, her students and the schools at which she taught, as well as a few collected from others: Bezanson, Sexsmith, Wellington, Camrose Normal School, Wembley, Bezanson, East Smoky, Currie, Clairmont, Kleskun Lake. There are also two of Goodwin Store, where she boarded when she was teacher at East Smoky School.
