George E. Armstrong

  • CA PANB MC328
  • Fonds
  • [1897]-1966; predominant 1897-1903

This fonds documents the business and personal activities of George E. Armstrong and sheds lights on his personal interests. It consists of two scrapbooks, dating from 1910 to 1966, which contain newspaper and magazine clippings of local, national and international events, such as Victoria and Carleton County weddings, deaths, marriages; local tragedies (fires and automobile accidents); provincial and federal elections; Royal Visits; and World War II. They also contain information pertaining to George Armstrong's family and to his business enterprises.

The fonds also contains a history of the Stillman-Armstrong family prepared by George Armstrong, a copy of his personal memoirs, an 1894 photograph of Armstrong with identified Stream Drivers, a brochure pertaining to Armstrong's Camps (ca. 1917), and eight sketches or maps of lands located in northeastern and central New Brunswick prepared by him. These include two sketches of the Bathurst Lakes area and one of the Perth Milling Company Limited lands and timber licenses.

Following a recent acquisition, the bulk of the fonds now consists of the correspondence (1889-1903) of George E. Armstrong, with guides, clients (including taxidermists), suppliers, sporting magazines, various associations, friends and family. From this correspondence, it quickly becomes apparent that Armstrong was an excellent guide and obviously a shrewd businessman for most of his clients return year after year and write to him often -- initially as clients but soon less formally as both friend and client. Few of his clientele were New Brunswickers; most were wealthy American businessmen, as indicated by their letterheads.

The fonds also includes 5 humourous pencil sketches of employees of George Armstrong and his operations by J.H.F. Jr., [1900].
