Aaron Loucks Papers

  • US MCUSAA HM1/076
  • Collection
  • 1917-1945

The collection includes early legal and financial documents related to the Mennonite Publishing House and relief work, World War I newspaper clippings, and assorted papers and notes covering Louck's involvement in publishing and relief work.

Of particular interest is the 1918 warrant obtained to search Mennonite Publishing House and sieze materials advocating "refusal of duty in the military and naval forces of the United States."

Loucks, Aaron, 1864-1945

Samuel McRoberts Photo Collection

  • CA MHC 713
  • Collection
  • 1926-1929

By 1926, portions of the Chortitzer and Sommerfeld Mennonite churches belived they could no longer trust the Canadian government after they had lost control of educating their children. Samuel McRoberts, a wealthy banker who, at the behest of his wife, helped the Mennonites by purchasing their land on the prairies and selling them land in Paraguay. These photos were likely taken by McRobert's associate, Fred Engen and were intended to show the progress and good conditions in the Menno Colony in Paraguay and thus encouraging more movement to Paraguay.

Engen, Fred, 1863-1929

John Holdeman Papers

  • US BCMLA MS.92
  • Collection
  • 1860 - 1900

Much of the correspondence in this collection consists of letters written by Johann Holdeman to Peter Toews and his wife, 1882-1898, found in the J. I. Penner (JIP) collection from Kleefeld, Manitoba. These letters are all in German. There is also some correspondence to Peter Toews from other people. Much of the material came from collections owned by J. J. Unruh (JJU), Isaac Toews (IT), and some from Lizzie Benson (LB) and from Harry Wenger (HW).

The documents (folders 24-25) of the IT collection are of significance in the pre-migration and immigration to Canada period. They are related to Peter Toews and the Kleine Gemeinde.

In addition to the correspondence, there are also xeroxed copies of three account books: (1) Holdeman’s personal account book (1884ff.) with some record of his animal breeding and trade, planting crops and trees, weather conditions, home remedies, etc.; (2) his Botschafter der Wahrheit record book with subscriber lists, as well as a few miscellaneous items; and (3) his resume of debts, 1899-1900, indicating how he planned to deal with these or, in the event of his death, how they were to be settled. The first two are owned by Lizzie Benson, a granddaughter, and the third by F. H. Wenger.

No originals of these materials are in the MLA. As of 3 October 2000, the locations of all originals is unknown.

The method used in filing the Holdeman material proceeds from the personal to the more general in alphabetical and chronological order as much as possible; and from the material which is directly related to John Holdeman to that related to others. The various sources (LB, JIP, IT, JJU, FHW, and HW), unless the material has been filed under a specific category (e.g., account books, etc.) are filed in alphabetical order: Benson, Penner, Toews, Unruh, Wenger. (The material in ledger 3 of the J. J. Unruh collection, folders 29-33, precedes that of ledger 2.)

Holdeman, John (1832-1900)
