Name of creator
William Stanley Croft was born 7 January 1867 in Chester Basin, Nova Scotia, to Joseph and Matilda Croft. He was first married in 1898 to Elizabeth Ellen Ernst, with whom he had at least one child, Clark Raymond Croft (b. 1900). William Croft married Gladys Adelia Hiltz in 1908, with whom he had at least one child, Arthur Stanley Croft (b. 1909). His first marriage certificate lists his occupation as a farmer, while his second identifies him as a miner. He died 19 January 1944.
Fonds was donated by Thomas Lackey of Neptune Theatre in 1973, and accessioned by the Archives in 1988.
Scope and content
Fonds comprises two letters written to William Croft. The first refers to work in the gold mines, while the second is a request for Croft's permission to allow his sixteen-year-old son to go overseas with the Canadian Forces. There is also a note from James Heyson to John Croft containing a medicinal recipe.
