Title: The passing of John Pritchard, "Saskatoon Daily Star." 31 October 1925.
Description: 1 page.
Notes: In 1927 the University hired Cameron to gather material dealing with the early days of settlement. Cameron's chief interest was in the Métis and Native people. Much of his information came from former servants of the Hudson's Bay Company. Cameron wrote "The War Trail of Big Bear," an account of his experiences during the Frog Lake incident of 1885.
This clipping refers to the importance John Pritchard, a Métis, played in protecting the white women who had been captured by Big Bear's band during the Frog Lake massacre.
