Biographical history

Arthur H.H. Bieber was born in Simcoe, Ontario in 1902, the son of Herbert Egmont Bieber ([ca. 1874]-1964) and Edith Mary Henry (d. 1961). He was educated at Lower Canada College and St. Francis College. During World War II, he served as a non-commissioned officer in Britain in charge of local tours for Canadian troops on leave. While in the military, Arthur traveled to England and France. He lived the latter part of his life in Richmond in the Eastern Townships. He died at the Sherbrooke Hospital on 22 November 1978.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The collection contains source material on the history of the Bieber family and material on the Eastern Townships, Canada, England and the two world wars. It consists of four albums of postcards and seven scrapbooks containing press clippings, correspondence, photographs, booklets, greeting cards and recipes. Included among the scrapbooks is one complied by Arthur Bieber during his World War II (WWII) military service. Most of the postcards are from Europe, only a few relate to the Eastern Townships. Many were sent or received by Arthur H.H. Bieber and therefore constitute items of correspondence. The clippings in the scrapbooks are mainly related to the Eastern Townships, with some on other topics. The collection is comprised of the following series: Scrapbooks ([1914?]-1978), Postcards Albums ([190-?]-[194-?]), and Photographs ([189-?]-194-?]).
