Extent: 33 cm of textual records

Biographical Sketch: Margaret Elizabeth Hunter, born 18
April 1849, and William Adam Hunter, born 17 June 1845,
married in Dumfrese, Scotland, on 22 December 1870. A
year later they emigrated to Canada, settling first in
Cayuga, Ontario. In 1883 Margaret's brother, Thomas
Copland, encouraged them to move west with the Saskatoon
Temperance Colonization Society and they built a home at
Llewellyn. Margaret and William had 7 children; their two
oldest daughters, Mary Kerr Hunter and Barbara Elizabeth
Hunter, married brothers from the Anderson family
– Burpee James Anderson and Newton Joseph Anderson,
respectively. Margaret's brother, Thomas Copland, was one
of the first settlers in Saskatoon, and was trained as a
chemist and druggist. The University of Saskatchewan is
located on his original homestead.

Digitized Material: The digitized material from the
Copland, Hunter and Anderson Family fonds consists of
documents that describe the lives of the Copland, Hunter
and Anderson families, notably their early years
following Margaret and William Hunter's move to Canada
and years in Saskatoon. It includes materials relating
to events such as the 1885 Resistance; later material
documenting student life, at the University, as well as
materials documenting the daily life of a pioneering farm
family. Included are diaries of Barbara Elizabeth Anderson,
nee Hunter (1874-1951) documenting her daily life,
1899-1934 and 1944; memoirs of Mrs. Barbara E. Anderson
(covering 1874-1905); and background material.
