Scope and content

Records of and relating to Madeline Harrower (1867-1891), who served as a nursing sister during the Boer War and World War I, were retrieved by a dumpster diver in Kerrisdale, Vancouver in 2000. Many of these were later sold at auction. Lois Blais subsequently engaged in a research review of this collection. Harrower was born in Australia and moved to Vancouver in the late 1940s.

Subseries consists of material related to Blais’ unfinished research into the historical significance of Madeline Harrower.
