        Sketchley family fonds
        PR3696 · Fonds · 1891-2001

        The fonds consists of correspondence, tickets, programs, workbooks and art, photographs, View-Master reels, and recordings and scripts from Rose’s teenage acting career, among others. Also included in the fonds is a guidebook for cat breeds, ribbons from the Calgary Horticultural Fair and artwork done by John Sketchley.

        The letters are to and from the Sketchley family and they include Christmas cards, teaching and school correspondence from Arthur Jr, cat-related affairs from Corol, and legal and union correspondence from Colin Sinclare.

        The fonds includes publications that have been well-used and/or include notes from family members, newspaper clippings that are in good condition and mention members of the family directly, as well as filled-out forms and workbooks. Other textual records are comprised of recital notes, typed songs (including one written and copywritten by Colin Sinclare), tickets, and somewhat rare publications held by family members (such as Colin Sinclare’s editions of the Kabalarian Courier, technocracy leaflet, and Ku Klux Klan handbook).

        Other records include photographs, largely comprised of Corol Sketchley’s cat breeding and showing career, stage performances, and company during World War II. The selected records from these categories came from the sorted and assembled albums, photographs in good condition, and photographs with contents not otherwise represented in the fonds.

        There are also homemade View-Master stereo reels that were created using photos taken by the family throughout Alberta and during their vacations. These were likely taken on the View-Master Personal Camera that came with the records at the time of donation. Records also include drawings and other art from Gwen, a book of pressed flowers, and a name change certificate for Colin Sinclare and his immediate family.
