Custodial history


In February 1987, Mr. Peter Hamilton, N.S. A.C. Registrar (retired), talked with Mrs. Jean Pell of Hebron, Yarmouth County, about her work as the author of the CBC farm radio broadcast called "The Gillans of Sunnybrae Farm". He discovered that the original manuscripts for the show were stored in her home. These manuscript materials were donated in 1994 by Mrs. Jean Pell to the Nova Scotia Agricultural College Agricola collection, located in the MacRae Library.

Scope and content
