Title: How the Duck Lake fight began. 1927?
Description: 4 pages.
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.
The story was told to W. B. Cameron by Joseph McKay, N.W.M.P. interpreter with Major Crozier, who fired the first shot.
