You may remember that Isa Grindlay Jackson’s great-grandson, Jason Johnson, was in touch with us to share information and photos about his great-grandmother. Paths of inquiry led us to Sarah Carter, in the History Department at the University of Alberta, who in turn sent me a link to the digitized newspaper archive of Peel’s Bibliography of Prairie writing. There, I discovered the expected 400-odd submissions to the Western Farm Leader, but also a few select tidbits sent to newspapers such as The Carbon Chronicle and The Wetaskiwin Times. Here’s a poem for summer.
Jackson, Isa Grindlay. “Summer Vacation.” The Wetaskiwin Times (2 July 1931): 5.
