Biographical history

Lloyd George Warkentin was born on December 15, 1929 in Langham, Saskatchewan to Jacob and Aganetha (Thiessen) Warkentin. He grew up in Dalmeny, Saskatchewan, where he received his elementary and high school education. Warkentin attended the Tabor Bible School in Dalmeny and received a Diploma in Administration (Accounting) from the University of Regina in 1978. He was named a Fellow of the Institute of Canadian Bankers in 1953.

In 1953, Warkentin married Lena (Lee) Kowalko of the Erwood, Saskatchewan district.

During his professional career, Warkentin was employed by the Bank of Nova Scotia (1948-1971); Saskatchewan Department of Co-operation and Co-operative Development (1972-1986); Saskatchewan Department of Economic Diversification and Trade (1986-1989 and 1990-1992); and Triple C School in Grand Cayman (1989-1990 and 1992 to 1994). Warkentin is currently (2017) retired and resides in Sidney, British Columbia.

Warkentin has been active in local churches throughout his life, and has been involved with Gideons International for over 50 years.

Scope and content

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.
