Through the Eyes of Everett Baker
Grand Coteau Heritage and Cultural Centre
Shaunavon , Saskatchewan


   "Captured most people
there" (excerpted from
Everett Baker's diary, July
16, 1958) best describes
Everett Baker's passion for
Saskatchewan people, places,
and events. Through the use
of photography, this amateur
photographer captured the
lives and events of everyday

individuals living in
Saskatchewan from the late
1930s to the early 1970s.
Baker's interests included a
variety of subjects, and in
particular, the social and
natural history of
Saskatchewan. He worked
diligently on a number of
projects to encourage the

preservation of
Saskatchewan's history. By
capturing people and events
on film, presenting early
slide shows to groups
throughout the province, and
using his gift for story
telling, Mr. Baker created in
people young and old an
awareness of the importance

of this history. In his later
years, Mr. Baker donated to
the Co-operative College of
Canada over 10 000 colour
slides that were eventually
donated to the Saskatchewan
History and Folklore Society.
Through this donation, the
slides continue to be
utilized for research
