Oliver Hiram Johnson Diary

One of our newest acquisitions at the archives is a diary written by Oliver “Rutabega” Johnson. It depicts early life of a pioneer to Beaverlodge. We are so pleased that his granddaughter decided that the archives is the best place to keep the diary.

The diary can be accessed and read on-line – we also transcribed it for you for easier reading. Enjoy this glimpse of early pioneer life.
