Sydney Helmer Standen materials

Boxes 1-5 contain records relating to Sydney Helmer Standen (SHS) (known as Sid), as well as papers relating to other members of his family and of the families of Euphemia (Effie) Young Standen (nee McQueen) (EYS), his wife. Sid Standen was born 27 July 1905 in Minesing, Ontario, and died in Burnaby, British Columbia, 12 March 1975. In addition to documents of vital statistics, there are files regarding his schooling, teaching career, military service, sporting life, church life, and household and financial affairs. Professor Standen indicates that the papers were arranged to reflect their provenance as nearly as possible as they were found on the death of SHS in 1975. Most of the correspondence in these files contains letters received by SHS and EYS. They represent only a small fraction of the correspondence that the two received in their lives together. It is evident from even this limited record that they both engaged in a voluminous correspondence with distant family and friends. The letters span two world wars, drought and depression, and the Cold War era.
