Madeline’s Research – An Inventory
In this space, I’ll begin to make a list of the main categories of articles she wrote and collected. It is general right now — as I start to make lists of what her books contain, I will be able to be more specific about what her archives contain.
Tweedsmuir Histories – Ontario Women’s Institutes. Madeline won provincial awards for her histories of Essex County which she began to write in the 1950s.
Memories ofLake Erie Shores – 1984 – Stories of Leamington Ontario from the early 1900s; stories by Earl Robson, a writer and Lake Erie sailor, whose stories were published by Madeline at the request of Earl’s sister Lena Robson Smith.
A History of Rochester Township – 1978 – written with the help of Frank Trepanier upon the 125th anniversary of the township’s founding.
Numerous family trees of Essex County founding families, especially from the Ruscomb/Woodslee area.
Scrapbooks and clippings about the towns and villages of Essex County from newspapers over the years.
