Robbins Elliott fonds (Accession No. 2004.009-ELL)

Robbins Elliott fonds

Robbins Leonard Elliott (1920-2003) was the son of Dr. Malcolm R. and Jean Steadman (nee Haley) Elliott. He graduated from Acadia University with a B.A. in 1941 and from the University of Toronto with a M.A. in 1947.

Elliott joined the military in 1941 and stayed in the Service until the end of the War, serving with the North Nova Scotia Highlanders and the Canadian Intelligence Corps. He was a Field Press Censor, attached to No. 3 Canadian Public Relations Group on the Western Front. Elliott retired with rank of Captain.

The digital records consist of personal correspondence and photographs from the Second World War, including his work as a censor. Some of his letters describe the conditions in Europe and two of his letters describe visits to camps outside of Germany.

Original records are held at and available through the Esther Clark Wright Archives.
