I always enjoy shooting for the UofL’s Southern Alberta Magazine, and the Fall 2011 issue was no exception. This issue includes photos of NWT politician J. Michael Miltenberger, UofL chancellor Dr. Shirley McClellan, and UofL researcher Dr. Judith Kulig. You can view the entire publication online HERE.

“This postcard was written by Georgina Sarah McMullin Davis to her mother Ellen McMullin in Blytheswood, Ontario (near Leamington).

Children Vivian, Dorothy and Evan. So there explains Georgie’s note on the Rail station that Frank went out from there every day.”
