Back to Finding Aids
Gerald Victor Carveth was born in Leskard, Ontario on September 13, 1897. He was the son of Arthur William and Elizabeth Carveth. His father and two brothers, Cecil and Rupert, arrived in the Grande Prairie area in 1911. His father returned east the following year to bring Gerald, his mother, and his sister Rita to join them. The family homesteaded on NW, NE, SE 10-72-5-W6th. In September 1915, Gerald filed on his own homestead, SW 6-73-4-W6th.

Gerald Carveth and Gladys Clarkson were married on February 14, 1923. Gladys Clarkson was born November 17, 1897 at Williamsburg, New Brunswick to Martin and Elizabeth Clarkson. Her siblings were Albion (Slim), Jennie, James,and Douglas. In 1900 the Clarkson family moved to New Westminster, British Columbia, and later Chilliwack before moving to Grande Prairie in 1919 where they purchased SW 4-72-4-W6th. Before her marriage to Gerald, Gladys was employed as a teacher.

Gerald and Gladys Carveth bought the Arthur Carveth farm, where they lived for 31 years. Three children were born to the Carveths, Jim, Betty, and Edna.

Gerald was also involved in the life of the community. Interested in baseball, he played on senior teams in the area for 21 years, starting in 1914 with the Deep Creek Seniors. He also managed the boys’ Twilight Tigers and the Ladies’ Twilight Softball Team for several years. Gerald served as Chairman of the Board for Twilight School District No. 4417 from 1930 to 1933. He also participated in local UFA work, serving as both secretary and president. After retiring from farming in 1954, Gerald became secretary-treasurer of the Grande Prairie County Agricultural Society fair, Secretary-Treasurer of the Grande Prairie & District Old-Timers’ Association, director (later treasurer, then city and district chairman) of the Grande Prairie and District Branch Canadian Cancer Society, and a board member of the Pioneer Museum Society of Grande Prairie and District.

Gerald Carveth died on April 13, 1982 in Grande Prairie at the age of 84. Gladys died on July 14, 1995, also in Grande Prairie.

Custodial History

The records were donated to Grande Prairie Public Library with the Isabel Campbell collection. In 2008 the Library donated them to South Peace Regional Archives. Some of the photographs may or may not have originally belonged to Carveth.

Scope and Content

The fonds consists of records relating to the personal life and interests of Gerald V. Carveth. The records contain scrapbooks of newspaper articles assembled by Carveth on a variety of topics including family, pioneers, local events, sports, general news, and cancer; copies of the first issue of the Tattler publication; twelve photographs taken around the Grande Prairie area or of events in which local residents participated; and a certificate of appreciation from the Grande Prairie and District Old Timers’ Association.

Series 384.01 Scrapbooks. — ca. 1923-1980. — 9 cm.The series consists of six scrapbooks of newspaper clippings collected and assembled by Gerald V. Carveth. The clippings relate to his personal life and interests. The time periods covered by the scrapbooks overlap, so the arrangement of the articles appears to be roughly by topic, rather than chronologic. Several scrapbooks are incomplete, with extra articles clipped and labelled, but not yet pasted organized or pasted in. Four of the scrapbooks (labelled A to D) are indexed. The indexes are inserted in the front cover of each scrapbook. Scrapbook A (ca. 1923-1980) contains stories on topics such as family members and pioneers; scrapbook B (ca. 1956-1973), general news stories of interest; scrapbook C (ca. 1933-1974), the Old Timers’; and scrapbook D (ca. 1961-1974), history, politics, and general news. The other two scrapbooks are not labelled or indexed. One of these (ca. 1937-1980) appears to cover topics such as local events and sports while the other (ca. 1960-1973) is dedicated to cancer articles.See below for a listing of articles of local interest:

Series 384.02 Collected publications. — 1921. — 0.5 cm.The series consists of a rough draft and a typed copy of the first issue (December 3, 1921) of a local publication, the “Tattler.” The “Tattler” was published by the Crystal Creek Altruist Club, which operated from about 1921 to 1925, and features humourous gossip and news about the club and its members. Gerald Carveth and his family and friends, including the Clarkson family, are mentioned in the paper. Carveth may have been one of the “Tattler” editors or merely a member of the club.

Series 384.03 Photographs. — [ca. 1908-1979]. — 12 photographs.The series consists of twelve photographs dating from ca. 1908 to 1979. The photographs include a portrait of Gerald Carveth in his later years, threshing crews in the early days, Lake Saskatoon around 1915, a 1930s Old Timers’ Picnic, aerial photographs of Beaverlodge and Grande Prairie in the 1950s, and group photographs from various conventions including Alberta Women’s Institutes, the Canadian Seed Growers Association, and the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts. Some of the photographs clearly relate to Gerald Carveth or are labelled as being part of the “Gerald V. Carveth collection”. Other photographs have a more tenuous connection to Carveth and his family but are included as part of this series because their exact provenance is unknown and they may have originally belonged to Carveth.
