Baba Gathers with Friends and Family at Christmas, circa 1950s
Baba acted not only as a co-interviewer for this project, but also as its “secretary”. She was therefore often the first person to make contact with those we interviewed. Most of these individuals were a part of her social network and included members of St. Mary’s Ukrainian Catholic Church, friends and neighbours from the Donovan, the neighbourhood in which she grew up, casual acquaintances, and family friends that she had met in various Ukrainian and non-Ukrainian public and private spaces. Politically, religiously, and ideologically diverse, our interviewees included Catholic, Orthodox, nationalist, and progressive Ukrainian men and women. The interviews that Baba and I conducted thus tell stories about Sudbury’s Ukrainian community while reflecting on Baba’s social world and the relationships and conditions that sustained it.
