Sarah Donaldson Naugle family

  • Fonds
  • 1889-1924

Fonds consists of photographs taken by Sarah Donaldson Naugle on Sable Island, where she lived for much of her life. Naugle’s subjects include her family (both the Donaldsons and the Naugles) and life on the Island. Sable’s horses feature prominently, as do wrecked ships and their survivors, Island residents, the Life Saving Stations, light houses and other buildings, and assorted features of Island life.

Sarah Naugle was the primary, but not only, photographer of the images in the fonds. Other people, likely family members, also contributed. Family lore suggests Sarah Naugle developed many of the images herself on Sable Island, using both sunlight and traditional methods. Nova Scotia Archives has records of photographs being developed on the Island (RJ Boutilier letterbooks and diaries), making this is a definite possibility. Some images in the fonds are prints, made in the 1950s and 1960s. of earlier images.

Fonds also includes two textual documents: the marriage certificate for Sarah Donaldson and Alexander Reuben Naugle, and a newspaper clipping featuring their son Clyde.
