Historia biográfica

Carl William Walin was born in Wilmar, Minnesota, April 11, 1900. In 1903, he moved with his family to Clive, Alberta. In 1910 the Walin family moved to Hughendon, Alberta. In 1916, Mr. Walin traveled to Illinois to study at the Eastman Kodak School of Photography. Upon completion of his studies, Mr. Walin apprenticed with a photographer in West Virginia. After working in a Maryland shipyard in 1918 to aid the war effort, Mr. Walin returned to Canada in 1919 and purchased F.L. Talbot photographic business in Wetaskiwin and renamed it the Walin Studio of Fine Portrait Photography which he operated until 1956 when he sold the studio to Bert Jasperse. Mr. Jasperse at first retained the name Walin Studio of Fine Photography but eventually renamed the business Jasperse Studios. For a period of time in the 1930s, Mr. Walin also operated film development services called Artistone Studio. In 1922, Carl Walin married Dagne Billsten of Malmo, Alberta. The Walin's had one daughter Leone and one son, Dale. Dagne Walin died in 1943. In 1960, Mr. Walin married Pearl (Pat) Gould of Brandon, Manitoba. Mr. Walin's photographic abilities were widely acclaimed and he was the recipient of several awards, including two merit awards from the Professional Photographers Association of America. Additionally Mr. Walin was accredited to photograph Royal Tours of Canada. Mr. Walin's photographs are an important chronicle of early to middle twentieth-century life in Alberta and especially significant for those interested in the history of the Wetaskiwin area. Mr. Walin died in Edmonton in 1966 and is buried in Wetaskiwin.

Historial de custodia

The majority of the records consists of the records of the Walin Studio of Fine Portrait Photography and was given the accession number 98.37. When the Walin Studio of Fine Portrait Photography ceased operations in 1956, Mr. Walin sold the studio and images to Bert Jasperse of Wetaskiwin who opened and operated Jasperse Studios in the same location. In the early 1990s, Bert Jasperse, upon his retirement and the closing of Jasperse Studios, sold the Walin images and records to the Samson Cree Nation in Hobbema, Alberta, who were interested in the collection for Walin's portraits of early twentieth century native life. The Samson Cree Nation separated images pertaining to native life and sold the remainder of the collection to the City of Wetaskiwin Archives in 1998. Accession 88.7 was donated to the City of Wetaskiwin Archives by Leone Provost, Carl Walin's daughter in 1988.
