Born to a pioneer Victoria County family, Sidney R. Weisiger grew up with stories of the area's early history. After a term as county sheriff and naval service during World War II, he devoted the last years of his life to preserving Victoria's heritage. His "Vignettes of Old Victoria" and "Sidney's Journal" appeared in "The Victoria Advocate", 1971-1975. After his death, his widow Hilda donated his entire collection of historical research to Victoria College. (1981)
