Biographical history

Custodial history

Fonds was donated by Jean Pell to NSAC Agricola collection in the MacRae library in 1994. Original accession no. A1994-001 (or 94.1).

Scope and content

Fonds contains Jean Mason Pell's broadcast scripts for The Gillans, a dramatic radio serial about a farming family produced for the Maritime version of CBC's Farm Family, which aired from 1941-1971. It was written by Norman Creighton and Kay Hill until 1949, when Jean Pell took over as the scriptwriter until the serial's final season in 1971. Scripts for the program, which aired every weekday, are arranged in chronological order; the occurrence of "emergency scripts," which were substituted when one or more characters were unable to perform, resulted in some episode numbers being skipped or numbered out of order.
