Name of creator
Eveline Coulombe was born in Hearst, on March 21, 1927 and attended école Sainte-Thérèse. As a young adult, she held a few jobs in Hearst before moving to Cochrane, with her family. On July 8, 1947, Eveline married Albert Touchette at the Transfiguration Church in Cochrane. The couple had four children: Valérie, Yvonne, Diane and Marianne. The Touchette family then lived in the various communities where Mr. Touchette was working as a Canadian National Railway’s employee. In 2006, Eveline published a book entitled C'est mon histoire...
Scope and content
The collection contains digital photos dating from 1898 to 1954. Most of them show members of the Coulombe family when they were living in Hearst, including Eveline's parents as well as her siblings: André, Cécile, Georgette, Léo, Robert and Yvonne. In addition, there are some pictures of their neighbors and friends from Hearst, such as Claude Larose's family. Others illustrate students at école Sainte-Thérèse and a few buildings in Hearst, at that time. There are also textual documents that the donor has kept, as souvenirs from her childhood in Hearst. It includes an autograph album where we find the signature of several people living in Hearst in the early 1940s, as well as religious images and correspondence.
