Series 252.01Dolly Lanctot and Emile Auger. — 1920-1950. — 1 cm of textual records. — 35 photographs.

“Dolly” Ethel Violette Lanctot was born October 7, 1910, in Montreal, Quebec, the eighth of fourteen children. Her parents, Edmond and Rubina Lanctot moved into the Bezanson district to farm in 1914, then to Grande Prairie in 1918 to open Lanctot’s store. Dolly was interested in music, a silver medalist in the Grande Prairie Music Festival and an often heard soloist at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church where she was a choir member. On June 21, 1928, she married Emile Auger, whose parents, Mary and John, had operated a stopping place at 20-mile Creek on the Edson Trail in 1911 before moving on to Grande Prairie. (By 1914, Mary was a widow and had filed on a homestead SE 27-71-5 and by 1919 she was Mary Sauroil). Emile Auger walked over the Edson Trail in 1911. He worked at various jobs in the area and then operated a cartage and dray service from about 1928 to 1953, he was a member of the first volunteer fire department in Grande Prairie as well as serving on the Separate School Board for several years. Dolly assisted Emile with his business, continued her singing and raised three children: Leo, Eilene and Norma. In the spring of 1936, the three children suffered one infectious disease after another: measles, whooping cough, and finally scarlet fever, and after nursing them through a prolonged period of isolation, Dolly herself became ill and died on May, 17, the day she was to have sung “Come Sweet Morning” as a soloist in the Music Festival. Dolly was only 26 and her son, Leo only seven.

The fonds consists of 35 photographs, copies of family history records, 2 Social Credit brochures “Keep Alberta in the Lead”, a booklet and a newspaper on the history of Catholic Education “The First Fifty Years”, one placemat featuring the Edson Trail and one showing the history of St. Joseph’s School in pictures.
