Harriet Drake Fonds
The fonds consists primarily of letters written during World War I to Drake's sister Daisy Molson and sister's husband, John Dunham Molson. Letters are accompanied by transcriptions and biographical material prepared by Martha E. McKenna.
Harriet Drake was born to William Drummond Wilson and Elizabeth Isabel Cronyn on March 8, 1872, in Salt Lake City, Utah. Upon the death of her mother, she was adopted by John Drake of Bay City, Michigan. Harriet returned to Canada, the country of her parents' birth, in 1904 to train as a nurse at the Royal Victoria Hospital School of Nursing. She graduated in 1907.
