SCOPE AND CONTENT:

The fonds consists of notebooks in which Splinter recorded the progress of the projects he was working on; collected separate materials such as letters and plans; and noted dates, locations, and temperatures. The diaries are extremely detailed and effectively document the planning and building processes used by Public Works for various sites around Alberta, including Drumheller, Boyle, Stony Plain, Edmonton, Bowden, Thorsby, and others. There are also some sites in the Northwest Territories. Building projects include federal sites such as RCMP buildings and community projects such as gyms and sports fields.

The audiocassette accompanies the seventh volume of the notebooks and consists of Splinter elaborating on the projects documented in that notebook.

LANGUAGE NOTE: The material is in English.
