Alice Bulmer fonds

  • CA MtA 0051
  • Fonds
  • 1920-1945

Fonds consists of diaries kept by Alice Bulmer, who lived at Aulac, New Brunswick, on the Cumberland ridge near the site of Fort Beausejour. The contents of the fonds describe daily activities in the midst of the Great Depression. Typical entries describe the weather, the farm and garden tasks performed by members of the family, and the coming and going of family members, relatives and neighbours. These latter interactions and movements are interesting, for they suggest both a freedom of movement that was available to rural people in the automobile age, and a relatively high level of casual visiting on the part of family and neighbours.

Augusta C. Umphray student notebook

  • CA MtA 0155
  • Item
  • n.d.; fl. 1866-1867

Fonds consists of a notebook inscribed "Augusta C. Umphray, Free Union School, Yonkers." The notebook is divided into three distinct sections. Section one, dated 1866, is a "Literature Chart", listing authors with the century in which they were writing. This section appears to pre-date Umphray's enrollment at Mount Allison. The second section in titled "Spelling Book, Vol. 2nd, 1867" and consists of words and their meanings. The third section is an undated poem in 61 stanzas entitled "School Bound - An Idyl".

At first glance it appears that the poem was written by Umphray herself to celebrate the friendship she felt for her teachers at the Female Academy: Miss Catherine Proctor (see stanza 19ff); Miss Mary Piccard (sic) (see stanza 23ff); Miss Kate Smith (see stanza 36ff); Miss Augusta Daily (see stanza 28ff); Miss Charlotte Treadwell (see stanza 32ff); and Professor Philip Brown (see stanza 44ff). However, the Mount Allison University Archives also holds the identical poem written "by Hattie Smith" in 1868 (see accession 8418). The poem may have been a penmanship exercise which had to be completed by all students.

The poem describes the teachers' physical characteristics and demeanor, and their hobbies and activities, as well as Sackville and the Academy.
