Name of creator
Harriet (a.k.a. Hally) Carrington Brown was born on 1 March 1879 in Baltimore, Maryland. Her parents were Thomas R. Brown and Harriet R. Carrington. On 5 December 1900, Hally married Duncan K. Brent in Baltimore. Together, they had three children: Joseph L. Brent (born 1903), Duncan K. Brent (born 1906) and Harriet C. Brent (a.k.a. Hally - born 1913). Hally Sr. died in October 1968 and is buried at the Greenmont Cemetery in Baltimore, MA.
From the time that Mrs. Brent was 10 years old, in 1889, she spent summers in North Hatley, on Lake Massawippi, with her family. She continued to visit North Hatley throughout her life and recounted the experiences of the early American summer residents of North Hatley during the late 19th and early 20th centuries in her book The North Hatley Story.
Scope and content
The fonds contains source material on the life of Hally Carrington Brent and on tourism and summer residents of North Hatley and Lake Massawippi from 1902 to the 1960s. It consists of photographs and a hand-written partial manuscript of Brent's book "The North Hatley Story". The correspondence, written by Hally C. Brent and Duncan K. Brent relates events from North Hatley and includes interesting notes on the outbreak of World War I (WWI). The fonds is comprised of the following series: The North Hatley Story manuscript ([196-?]), The North Hatley Story photographs ([199-?], Newspaper clippings (1961-1979), Photographs ([187-]-1941), and Correspondence (1914-1927), Charest-de Lauzon-Bringier family history (1797, 1948).
