This collection consists of records created, accumulated and used by former Saskatchewan resident Lloyd G. Warkentin. The records relate to his personal and family life; his interest in religion; his early life in Dalmeny, Saskatchewan; his work as a bank manager and as an employee of the Saskatchewan Department of Co-operation and Co-operative Development. Many of the items reflect Warkentin's general interest in Saskatchewan and its history.
The types of records included are photographs, yearbooks, telephone directories, family histories, correspondence, notes, reports, publications, postcards, maps, and memorabilia.
The graphic materials in this collection focus mainly on the Warkentin, Thiessen and Kowalko families; the town of Dalmeny; and various representations of Saskatchewan, including agricultural scenes, abandoned farms and machinery, elevators, towns (including hotels and other businesses), bridges, ferries, landmarks, Taylor Field and the Saskatchewan Roughriders, and the RCMP Musical Ride.
All of the records in the collection have been described at the file or item level, except for S-G906.6, which includes a publication entitled The Western Teacher: Modern Classroom Magazine, Volume 3, No. 2, published by Western Extension College, 1932.
No series assignment has been applied to the records in this collection.
