Custodial History 


Record was donated to the Archives of Manitoba by Alice Wilkins of Ladner, British Columbia in 2000. The diary was given to Alice Wilkins in 1965 by a British Columbia book dealer who found it in a box of books.




The cover of the diary was detached and was in fragile condition, so a new binding was made for the diary. The old binding remains with the diary, as well as a photocopy of the diary that was made when it was unbound.
