The fonds consists of one audiotape cassette and 0.05 m of textual material, which includes Ms. Basin’s essay based on the interview, biographical material, tributes and eulogies for Laura Attrux, photocopies of photographs illustrating her work as a public health nurse, and a photocopy of the Minute book, 1950-1971, of the Slave Lake District Nursing Association. The Association was responsible for providing a building to serve as home, office, and clinic for the district nurse. When the nursing service was disbanded the residual funds were used to establish the Laura Attrux Scholarship for local students. The audiotaped interview records the memories of two women who assisted Miss Attrux in her nursing duties and became her closest friends during her years in northern Alberta. Their recollections cover the activities of the community and their families, in both of which Miss Attrux was closely involved.
