Title: Tennenhouse Family fonds

Dates: [ca.1920], 1988

Extent: 3 cm of textual records

Biographical Sketch: Morris and Annie Tennenhouse
emigrated from Rumania to England in 1900. After four
years in England, the Tennenhouses immigrated to Canada
and set up a homestead in Camper, Manitoba. Frank
Tennenhouse, the youngest of 11 children, and the author
of the manuscript, was born in 1922 in Camper. Shortly
after Frank's birth, the family moved to Winnipeg and
in 1932 to Stony Mountain. The Tennenhouse family then
operated a family farm near Stony Mountain for the next
six decades. Frank Tennenhouse worked on the farm and
from 1954-1988 was an assistant professor of
agricultural engineering at the University of Manitoba.

Digitized Material: The digitized material from the
Tennenhouse Family fonds consists of an unpublished
manuscript entitled "Seventy Five Years of Farming
in Manitoba: A Collection of Stories of Life on the
Farm." Written by Frank Tennenhouse, the manuscript
recounts many different aspects of Manitoban farm life
from 1911-1988 including rural education in the 20's and
30's, day-to-day farm life, Jewish ethnicity in rural
Manitoba, and the language issues facing new immigrants
to Manitoba in the first half of the twentieth century.
The manuscript incorporates copies of several family
photos into its text.
