David, Did you ever get a source for finding a list of those who received financial assistance through the PMDF? There are some letters at The Rooms Provincial Archives Division (GN 2/5/195). I looked at them a long time ago, but there may be some names, or at least enough to figure out who was making a request. If you find a list, I would appreciate knowing about it.
There are also financial and other records for the fund at provincial archives (GN 159.38
1931-1934) and some reports (no names) appeared in the Journal of the House of Assembly.
Hi Suzanne. No, I haven’t yet found any details about PMDF applicants and/or beneficiaries. Thanks for the references that you’ve cited at the provincial archives. I’ll take a look at them before long.
