CUSTODIAL HISTORY:The records were maintained by the Waite family until the death of James Waite in 2009. The executor of the Waite estate was James’ cousin, Joan Elizabeth Currie (Nobes), but she predeceased James so Currie’s daughter, Shelly Currie, became the executor. Shelly donated the material to the PAA in 2010.

The fonds consists of records related to several generations of the Waite-Nobes families and the management of the Waite homestead and weather station from the early 20th century to the near-present.

The large amount of photos and negatives depict family members over the decades with most of them being identified and/or dated. Farming activities are also documented in the photographic images. Many of the photos are arranged in thematic albums.

The textual material provides a wealth of detail related to the management of the farm and data specific to the weather station. There is also correspondence related to the farm and weather station, family correspondence, contracts, ration books, genealogical information, township and homestead maps, family Bibles, local election material, auction posters, memorial cards, diaries, journals, and notebooks.

LANGUAGE NOTE: The material is in English.
