More Diaries and Letters

In this section we bring together material from across several University Archives and Special Collections.  Some individuals may have several entries while others are represented by a single piece of correspondence.  The majority of the individuals are in some way connected with the University of Saskatchewan.  Reading these documents, one gets a sense of the literacy of this generation.  In the following pages one can witness the ardent nationalism of the period and the strain the conflict put upon both those at the front and the families at home.  It is a tale of heartache, sorrow and hope written at the time by those involved.
