Historical note:

In 1927, the University of Saskatchewan hired William Bleasdell Cameron to gather interesting material dealing with the early days of settlement from the old-timers. Cameron's chief interest, since he was a former servant of the Hudson's Bay Company, was in the Metis and Native people. Much of his information came from other former servants of the Company. This file also contains second and third copies of some of these items. See also Cameron's book "The War Trail of Big Bear", (E99.C88C1), which contains some of these articles as well as an account of his experiences during the Frog Lake massacre in 1885.
