New Donations from Afar

August 16, 2016 – The Fredericton Region Museum has been very fortunate to have received several new donations from individuals travelling to Fredericton from great distances. Videos detailing each donation can be found at the links following their brief descriptions.

Ms. Evajune White and her family travelled from Massachusetts to donate a collection of items belonging to her grandfather, Lt. Col. Percy. A. Guthrie. Guthrie is a prominent figure in Canadian military history, and the collection is an incredible addition to the museum’s military selection. https://youtu.be/Y_gFuNZper8?list=PLkDCaTPdfQQlCssNQDAP61PzZXHaUIGoI

This Saturday (August 20), Mr. Robert Osgood and his family are travelling from New Glasgow, NS to donate his grandfather’s account book. The book dates back to the 1860s when Mr. Osgood’s grandfather was a solider in the 22nd regiment, serving in Fredericton. (Video will be filmed Saturday).

The museum wishes to thank the donators of these collections for travelling from so far. Donations such as these keep our collection alive and give us the opportunity to create new and impactful exhibits for the public.
