          William Earle Hudgeon fonds
          PR3663 · Fonds · 1950-1992

          The fonds consists of photographs created by Hudgeon as part of his professional work and as a hobbyist. There are three distinct types of photos: portraits (weddings, graduations, group portraits, etc.), news photos, and scenic shots.

          The portraits make up the bulk of the photos and the selected portraits all depict identified subjects, with a few exceptions. In addition to the types of portraits mentioned above (namely weddings and graduations), there are also formal portraits of Scout groups, school classes, Rotary Club events, and other social gatherings in Drumheller and Delia.

          The news photos depict specific events such as parades or the aftermath of news-worthy events such as accidents or fires. Many of these photos have newspaper copy attached to the back, thus providing detailed information about the images.

          The scenic shots depict the built environment of Drumheller and Delia with some landscape shots present.

          The textual material consists of several daily diaries kept by Blanche Chambers of Morrin, AB. Chambers was a family friend of the Hudgeons and gave these diaries to Earle at some point. There is no further information about Chambers or her relationship with the Hudgeons, but the diaries contain an immense amount of information.

          The diaries have daily entries, with each journal accounting for one year. The 1950s are particularly well-represented with some years in the 1960s-1980s present, as well. The diary entries provide information about the weather, daily activities, special events, and domestic life. There are also inserts such as pamphlets, extra pages for diary entries, letters, and drawings. Furthermore, some diaries contain hand-drawn quilt designs.
