This is the diary of Charles Walter Laidlaw. This is due to the annotation in the book on the interior cover. This indicates that Laidlaw was an educator in Winnipeg, a colleague of Sybil Shack and W. J. Sislar, a member of the board of governors at the U of M (Manitoba) and a member of the board of regent for the United College and a president of a committee. The first nine pages are printed and cover information like seasons, air mail rates and postal rules, how to compute interest, and a 13 period calendar.
The diary begins with the death of Gladys (relations unknown), and covers his attendance at various meeting with the legislative committee, records monthly bills for central heat for 1938 – 1945, the days he worked on the Professional Bill, and ends the diary entries on December 31st 1938.
Laidlaw tends to skip whole months or large portions of months in his recording. Skips around in diary re: when entering days.
