The Hurst family fonds consists of textual records (contained in Box 1) and photographs and graphic materials (contained in Box 2). Newspaper articles regarding the Hudson Bay Railway occupy a significant portion of the collection. Written by George Alexander Hurst in the late 1930s and early 1940s, these articles were largely published in the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix and Saskatchewan Commonwealth. Some articles are contained in “University Loose leaf Notebook.” Reports, proposals, and memorandums authored by Hurst and the On-to-the-Bay association are also included, as well as Submissions to the Royal Commission on Co-operatives by The Davison Co-operative Association of Davidson, Saskatchewan, and Hurst’s correspondence with D.J. Munro regarding the railway route. Additional textual material includes George Alexander Hurst’s unpublished manuscript, “Rambles Round the Ram Pasture” and Jean Hurst’s manuscript, “A Librarian’s Recollections Mostly of McMaster, 1944-1987.” Graphic materials include photographs (some contained within two photo albums) of George Alexander Hurst and friends and family, and extensive images of Churchill, Manitoba and its harbour. Notably, there is a photograph of Charles and Anne Lindbergh taken during their 1931 survey flight to Asia, when the couple made stop in Churchill. The fonds contains the following cartographic material: a 1929 map of Manitoba, a map of Southern Manitoba, five maps of Churchill, including the town, river, and harbour, a map depicting freight rates on grain products on Canadian National Railway stations in Manitoba, a 1929 map of the Yukon, and map of Lake Athabasca.
