.....I recently acquired a group of old pictures from a distant relative. One of them was labeled as "My prairie pupils - Shaunavon". However, it appears to be a one-room country school and one of the pupils is holding a card bearing the name Marcliffe and the year 1920. I thought it might be of interest to your project.

.....The lady who presumably took the picture was Catherine "Cassie" Myles from Springfield, New Brunswick and she did teach for a short time in "the West" - I think also in Medicine Hat, as there are pictures from there as well. If anyone needs more particulars I can provide more details on Cassie's origins and later life, but nothing on her time in "the West".

.....I hope this is of some interest to you.

Sincerely,

John Elliott
