List of interviewees
Description: 
Interviews conducted from 1974 to 1984 to record the memories of many of the early residents of the community. Recordings are grouped into five broad categories: Pioneer interview (migration, agriculture, homesteading, work for the Grand Trunk Pacific/Canadian National Railway, setting up small businesses), Anecdotal history (reminiscences), Railroads (construction and running of the railroads, including songs, poems and stories), Family history, and Biggar history. Sound quality is good on most tapes.
