This fonds consists primarily of the professional business records of barrister, solicitor and civil servant, E. Allison MacKay of Fredericton, New Brunswick. It consists of business correspondence, legal documents, receipts, memoranda, and statements of account. Much of his legal work related to property transactions, the settling of estates (probate), debts, bankruptcy, immigration, and civil suits. A Presbyterian, he accepted several legal cases involving the Presbyterian Church of Canada, notably, Ferguson et al v. McLean et al, a dispute arising in the congregation of St. James Presbyterian Church at Newcastle, N.B. over union with the United Church of Canada.
The fonds also includes correspondence, circulars, minutes of meeting, and notes relating to MacKay's work as secretary of the executive committee of the Children's Aid Society, chaired by W. J. West, that facilitated the placement of evacuated British children in the homes of York and Sunbury County residents during World War Two.
Also included are a few pieces of personal correspondence, as well as documents, correspondence and other material pertaining to his work with, or membership, in the Independent Order of Foresters, the Knights of Pythias, and St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church.
MacKay, E. Allison
This fonds consists of 45 pieces of correspondence written by Walter A. Evans to Eva May Fleet, between 1915 and 1919, while he was serving overseas with the Canadian Expeditionary Force during World War I. It documents his activities as a soldier, conditions in the trenches, and his experiences on the battlefield. As well, the letters provide insights into the relationship developing between Eva and Walter that culminated in their marriage in 1921.
Walter Evans describes the Front as a God-forsaken place, and comments on the mud, damp, and cold. He notes bombing raids; the deaths of men, mules, and horses; and the need for more men at the Front. In particular, he discuss his role in the Battle of Passchendaele, what he saw on the battlefield (10 December 1917), and mentions the boys from home, particularly his brother, Alder, whom he meets overseas. As well, he notes his activities on leave, his training period in England, and the need for conscription. His last 5 letters (24 November 1918 to 27 April 1919) discuss his desire to return home, his attempts to make this a reality, and his hope that Eva will agree to marry him.
