My Quints Sketch Book II.

This scrapbook contains newspaper and magazine clippings which trace the lives of the Dionne quintuplets from ca. 1940-ca. 1970, as children, as teenagers, and as adults. Many of these clippings are undated and the source for them is unidentified. Numerous reproductions of photographs of the quints which appeared in the press are shown here. The majority of the childhood photographs were taken once custody of the quints had been restored to the children's parents in 1941 and the Dionne family came to live together in a new home.

One clipping reports on the death of the quints' physician Dr. Dafoe of pneumonia and includes details of his lifetime achievements including his acclaimed care of the Dionne quintuplets. The remaining clippings report on key events in the lives of the quintuplets including their education and careers. Some clippings report on the marriages of Annette, Cecile, and Marie, while others report on the birth of children to these three quintuplets. Other clippings report on the sudden deaths of two of the quintuplets, Emilie and Marie. Two clippings relate to an article which appeared in McCall Magazine in which the remaining quintuplets give an account of their homelife with their parents in Callander, Ont.
