Timeline: Saskatchewan Hall

Saskatchewan Hall on the University of Saskatchewan campus in Saskatoon. The first location of the Historical Public Records Office was in the basement of this building. In 1956, Provincial Archivist Lewis Thomas reminisced about the first location of the HPRO: "I vividly recall, as a graduate student labouring on a master's thesis in the late 1930's, the dim, dingy and depressing room in the basement of Saskatchewan Hall which was the first office of the Saskatchewan Archives on this campus. Its darkness was lit only by the flame of scholarship in the soul of its learned and kindly custodian, Dr. Arthur S. Morton." SK Archives Photo R-B422
