dc.description.abstractHandwritten notes from Estelle Cuffe Hawley about her time near Toronto as a teacher and then Principal of a small five room schoolhouse. She appreciated being close to her home town of Peterborough and she remarks that "Toronto was heaven to me in October 1918. For two reasons. First a general rule Ontario's young people wanted to work and live in Toronto. Many didn't manage that feat...". She also discusses the issues she encountered as principal, "...in addition to teaching fifty grade two pupils, I was lord-high everything else, like examining hair for head lice, placating angry mothers who called me an impudent young hussy...".en_US
