Biographical history

Anna LeBaron was born in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia in 1908 to Agnes Elliot and George VanBuskirk. She graduated from McGill University in Physical Education. After teaching in Washington, D.C. for a few years, she came to the Eastern Townships to teach at the Sherbrooke YWCA. Shortly after, she met and married Gordon Lebaron, a North Hatley native. They had three children: Judith, John, and Jane. Anna pursued an interest in the history of New England and more specifically the region's architecture. She died in North Hatley on 23 October 2000 (ashes in Reedsville Cemetery, North Hatley).

Custodial history

Scope and content

The fonds contains source material on the architecture of the Eastern Townships, in particular Stanstead County. It also contains material on Edwin Bean, an ancestor of Gordon Lebaron who farmed in Hereford in the 19th century. The fonds includes files on the architecture of various buildings (houses, schools, churches, mills) and material related to various local subjects. The fonds consists of research notes, press clippings, photographs, and ledgers. The fonds is comprised of the following series: Manuscript Notes on Architecture ([197-?]), Architectural Files (1905-[197-?]), Universalist Church ([1933?]-1989), Stanstead ([1966?]-[197-?]), Diary and Account Books of Edwin Bean (1885-1897), and Miscellaneous Documents (1892-[1976?]). The last of these contains photographic prints (from a series called 'Bird's Eye Views') of Beebe, Coaticook, Lennoxville, Sherbrooke, and Waterloo in the 19th century.
