Jack Calder at War: A Canadian Mother's WWII Scrapbook  is a hybrid creative and historical project based on an authentic Second World War scrapbook that documents the wartime career of Canadian journalist Jack Calder (1915-1944) during his time as a navigator with the Royal Canadian Air Force. The project not only makes the scrapbook’s contents digitally available for the first time, but also augments them with fictional imaginings of his mother’s wartime experiences. Using the scrapbook her grandmother Agnes Calder assembled as both creative inspiration and documentary source, writer Patricia Calder weaves together two vivid narratives: the story of a young man at war and the equally compelling homefront story of his mother waiting anxiously for news.
