WAM December 10-11 Kaleigh Bradley S.K. Hutton Photos
Graduate student Kaleigh Bradley came to Labrador looking for tales of survival from the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic in Okak.
But she changed tack after seeing S.K. Hutton’s photographs at Them Days Magazine.
Hutton was a Moravian missionary who lived in Okak in the early 1900s.
And what Bradley found inspired her on to write an entire master’s thesis about Hutton’s album.
Bradley just graduated with a Masters in Public History from Carleton University.
Labrador Morning’s John Gaudi asked her about the hidden story she discovered at the archives of Them Days Magazine, what it was like flipping through hundred-year-old photo albums.
